 On the October 1st edition of Your Call, film director Stanley Nelson joins us to talk about his new documentary, The Black Panthers, Vanguard of the Revolution

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk with Tim Weiner [whiner], author of “Enemies: A History of the FBI.”  Weiner says “A secret police is anathema in a democracy.  But the FBI’s powers make it America’s closest counterpart.”  How has the FBI used its powers over the last century?  And how has it shifted the balance between national security and individual freedom?  Join us Monday at 10am PST or leave a comment here.  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan and you.
