Sam Smith is the editor of The Progressive Review, which has been providing THE NEWS WHILE THERE'S STILL TIME TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT since 1964. Sam has been an informed observer and analyst of news for decades, as well as an accomplished musician. This will be Sam's fourth visit to the show. Among other things we'll discuss the viability of third party candidates, in a followup to last week's interview with Ben Manski, campaign manager for Jill Stein.
Sherwood Ross, an award-winning reporter, has provided a monthly column to The New American Dream Radio Show since May 2011. He served in the U.S Air Force where he contributed to his base newspaper, and later worked for The Miami Herald and Chicago Daily News. He contributed a weekly column on working for a major wire service. His columns have triggered more discussion than any other item on the show.
We'll be changing the beginning of our show from here on; our sponsors have graciously agreed that we don't have to run their ads before or during the show, so we can concentrate on what we (and our guests) have to say.
Be sure to check out The News from Mount Liberty, a segment where Chuck and Mike alternately read from Mike's books. Many listeners feel it's the best part of the show. It's probably the part that is the most fun for us ;)
