Hedrick Smith REBROADCAST

Today on Your Call: Rebroadcast--What will it take to shift power back to the people?

On today's Your Call we’ll rebroadcast a conversation we had with Pulitzer-prize winning, former New York Times journalist Hedrick Smith about his new book, "Who Stole the American Dream?" We’ll talk about what Smith uncovered in his research as he examined the last four decades of corporate and political power and how that led to “the dismantling of the American dream.” With politicians ignoring public opinion, and the middle class shrinking, where do we go from here? What does the “American Dream” mean to you? It’s Your Call with Matt Martin, and you.

Fukushima

Today on Your Call: How concerned should we be about Fukushima?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the recent leaks from the nuclear power plant at Fukushima, Japan.  It’s been over two years since the plant suffered its original damage from the earthquake and tsunami.  Now, more than 300 tons of radioactive water has leaked from the plant into the ground and ocean.  So what do we need to know?  Could the entire Pacific Ocean be at risk?  And what can we be doing to prevent this? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
