What a difference a day makes! Although I’m not 100% yet, I am feeling much better today.  And it’s a good thing, because it was a very busy show tonight…

We started with comedian Jamie Kilstein who, along with Allison Kilkenny hosts Citizen Radio. Jamie has a new CD out, called Zombie Jesus

It had been a while since I last spoke with Congressman Dennis Kucinich. He joined me tonight to talk about the wars and what it’ll take to end them, health care reform and why he voted the way he did, financial reform, and more… If you happen to be in Washington DC on Thursday, join him for a “Teach In on Capital Hill: What Congress Must Do to End US Wars and Help Secure a Peaceful Middle East“  (More about the Teach In tomorrow, with activist David Swanson.)

Environmentalist/Activist/Author Bill McKibben, founder of, has a new book out… Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet.  We talked about the book, the crazy weather we’ve been experiencing lately and how it’s all connected to climate change.

Ellen Ratner checked in with a news update from the Talk Radio News Service.

But there’s more…. My boyfriend sent me this column about Pat Tillman, written by Bill Dwyre, sports columnist for the LA Times. I was so impressed with what he wrote so I emailed him and asked him to join me to discuss it…

And finally, I checked in with investigative journalist Greg Palast to talk about his latest piece for “Behind the Arizona Immigration Law: The GOP Game to Swipe the November Election” — another way to look at the insanity from the most unwelcoming state in the nation…

And one more thing… Senator Carl Levin is my hero of the week, thanks to this line of questioning from today’s hearing on Goldman Sachs…

What a way to end the week… It was a busy show tonight. So click on the player above, and here’s what you’ll hear:

Since today is Earth Day, we started the show with a conversation with Jeff Regen, VP of Online Communications for Defenders of Wildlife. In addition to a campaign to urge people to dedicate a day of service to the earth, they’ve also spearheaded a drive to make Discovery Inc rethink its terrible idea to air a program on its TLC channel called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

There is a light at the end of the Boehner tunnel. I spoke with Justin Coussoule, the Democratic challenger running against John Boehner for the Congressional seat from Ohio’s 8th District! Justin was just endorsed by the Blue America PAC, so help him get the orange guy out of our Congress, if you can.

Last night, I played the phone message left on FreedomWorks voicemail by voice actor D.C. Douglas that wound up costing him his gig as the announcer voice in the GEICO commercials. Tonight, I spoke with D.C. Douglas and heard the whole story, first hand, from the voice himself!

I liked D.C. yesterday, when I first heard the story, and like him even more today, after speaking with him…and seeing this video he put together:

Jack Rice checked in with a report from the Talk Radio News Service

And we wrapped up the week with a visit from comedian/actor/author John Fugelsang

Just a quick favor to ask… please take a moment and click here.  I’m trying to get a DFA scholarship to Netroots Nation this summer, so I can use your support.  (It’ll just take a moment, and doesn’t cost a cent… just your vote!)  Thanks.

Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back with a new show Monday — 6-8pm ET.
