Hi fellow Kossacks,
Even tho I'm a Chicago gal, I've had the pleasure of working for Portland progressive radio host Adam Klugman as he broadcasts each week sharing his own unique take on the weirdness of this world along with a very savvy call-in crowd.
Adam served as creative director for the 2009 "Mad as Hell Doctors" tour, a group of no-nonsense PNHP single payer docs who toured the country stirring it up for single payer.
Well Adam hit the streets Thursday for the kick-off of Occupy Portland and on today's show (3-6 p.m. PDT, 6-9 p.m. EDT), he'll be talking about his experiences, and welcoming our own Jesse LaGreca reporting live from New York!
Here's what the boss got an eyeful of Thursday.
Pretty cool, eh?
Everyone's been sticking a mic in Jesse's face asking questions (thanks Ollie!)--we all wanted to give him the opportunity to report on what's important to him.
Hey, now if that isn't enough, Adam will also be talking to Dr. Margaret Flowers.
You may remember her from disrupting our cuddly little favorite Sen. Max Baucus' finance hearing and being led out by Capitol police.
Dr. Flowers has been an integral part of the October 2011 D.C. action, and she'll be updating us on what's shaking our capital.
Still with me?
Cool, because myself and fellow producer (and Kossack!) Al Nowakowski will be live from Occupy Chicago.
So we're going coast-to-coast this afternoon/evening, covering what is, imho, the story of a generation, the story the msm hasn't quite wrapped their profit-driven eyes around, the story that has helped people like Jesse bring his voice to its rightful audience, the story of the fight for economic justice in our country.

(oh, and for those who wanted an update on my incorporated uterus, she's decided not to run, but will be holding six weeks of press conferences before she actually tells anyone)
