Coming up on today’s show, we have activist and independent journalist Laura Gottesdiener here to discuss the horrific costs and consequences of placing prisoners in solitary confinement.

We also have none other than Kate Ward, my wife, here on to discus the great new book that she co-edited, Hungering And Thirsting For Justice.

We’ll also discuss a radical idea for improving political debates, Rick Santorum wanting to kill and eat Big Bird, and Congressman Todd Akin claiming that doctors give abortions to women who aren’t actually pregnant.
