Asia Pacific Forum is the progressive pan-Asian radio show broadcast every Monday night from 9-10pm on WBAI 99.5 FM in New York City and live on the web. We cover underreported stories from Asia, as well as Asian American politics and culture. Each week we talk to authors like Arundhati Roy, Jessica Hagedorn, and Jeff Chang; activists and politicos like Yuri Kochiyama, Mike Honda, and Monami Maulik; intellectuals like Tariq Ali, Vandana Shiva, and Vijay Prashad; artists like DJ Rekha, David Henry Hwang, and Asian Dub Foundation--and many more!
All of the irreverence modern politics deserves. Chris Spangle, Creighton Harrington, Greg Lenz, Joe Ruiz, and Gena Martinez examine the week's current events, culture, and politics from a range of libertarian viewpoints.
Common Sense with Dan Carlin is an independent look at politics and current events from popular New Media personality Dan Carlin. Carlin's self-described "Martian" viewpoints infuse each episode with a political alien's take on the world around us and the problems it faces. It's a smart, unique (and admittedly U.S.-centric) program that doesn't dumb down the information or analysis for the slowest person in the room. Carlin's rapid-fire staccato voice has been compared to William Shatner after too many espressos. That, plus his penchant for making everyone in the audience mad at him eventually, makes for a witch's brew of a podcast that is not for everyone. But for those craving a deeper intellectual analysis, a less partisan approach and unpredictable outside-the-box revelations, Common Sense with Dan Carlin is a feast for the mind.
An advocate for uncommon political thought, an aggressive Progressive. If you're way beyond believing America has a legitimate election system and a government of, by and for The People you may find comfort here.

Growing up as the only child of legendary comedian George Carlin wasn’t all laughs and jocular exchanges of the “seven dirty words.” In her new memoir, “A Carlin Home Companion: Growing Up With George,” author, radio host and podcaster Kelly Carlin describes her tumultuous upbringing, awash in drugs, alcohol and screaming fights - but also with a great deal a lot of love and affection. In this interview with satirist and radio host Jimmy Dore, Carlin pulls the curtain back on what most people don’t know - or understand - about her famous father, while sharing intimate details abour her struggles as the child of alcoholic/addict parents, her escape from an abusive marriage and the peace of mind she’s achieved by charting her own path to personal fulfillment.

It's Pre-Thanksgiving, 2013, with Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter and Armando. Greg rounded up the day's ACA news & polling. Twitter's been buzzing with discussion of the latest attempt by conservatives to overturn Obamacare and block access to contraception along the way. Armando and Joan both weigh in on this one, and wrap up on the story of netroots involvement in the filibuster reform fight, including the role the Daily Kos Campaigns team in converting the "outside" game into metrics the "insiders" could understand and absorb, a critical element in making the "inside/outside" game work. Joan previews the upcoming holiday period on the Daily Kos front page, including coverage of significant Thanksgiving and Black Friday labor actions. Wrapping up on the nuts & bolts of the nuclear option, we take a look back at a forgotten, late 2005 proposal by the then-majority Republicans in the Senate to set off a sort of "mini-nuke" that actually purported to erase its own tracks after it was u ...
Fostering a high self-esteem is encouraged by virtually everyone as a way to make people happier and more successful. But there is no evidence for this claim, and indeed the gospel of self-esteem can make people more anxious and less happy. Not to mention the way egalitarians have exploited the message -- why, it's not how you do, it's how you feel about yourself that counts! Dr. Michael Edelstein joins me to crush this myth like a bug.

Pre-Thanksgiving GunFAIL roundup. Greg Dworkin brought us dueling Hagel headlines, turned quickly to freelancing Chuck Schumer, and wound up with a selection of the many articles decrying Bob McColloch's grand jury farce, and wondering what lies ahead.

Bill and Randy investigate the questions in the media after the terrible terror attacks in Paris. We answer the vexing question, “Why do they hate us?” We also stop laughing as Trump shows us the ugly face of the American Right. We discuss why Trump is following a policy that would make him Isis’s best friend. We look at Ted Cruz and ask…where’s HIS birth certificate? Finally we have a short moment to discuss the many questions we receive as a Progressive Podcast overseas. It’s getting ugly on the campaign trail…
We look at Turkey's downing of a Russian warplane near the Turkey-Syria border on Tuesday–one of the most serious clashes between a NATO member country and Russia in half a century. Turkey says it repeatedly warned the Russian pilots they were violating Turkish airspace. Russia claims they plane never strayed from Syrian airspace. “There are some serious questions on the table about Turkey’s role in this conflict,” says journalist Vijay Prashad, in a web exclusive interview. He suggests Turkey may be providing support to both the Islamic State and various proxy forces fighting in the area where the Russian jet was shot down. He also argues there is no international backing for American and French retaliatory bombings in Raqqa, Syria. Prashad's recent article is Showdown on the Syrian border.

As the sounds of guests arriving and holiday preparations go on around him, David Waldman delivers today’s KITM, full of Thanksgiving cheer and stuff for you to shout across the dining room table tomorrow: For Greg Dworkin, Thanksgiving marks the time when “early polls” become “polls” — and more predictive as you finish your leftover turkey. Bernie Sanders comes out on top in many categories, but still trails Hillary Clinton. Martin O’Malley almost doubles his national support in his home state with 7%. Donald Trump is doing just fine. His behavior is being picked up on by some people, but does the attention hurt or help him? How can news organizations reveal what Trump is without revealing what his followers are? So what to do if Trump leaves? Meanwhile, Ted Cruz sets himself up as Donnie Jr. Marco Rubio will defeat ISIS with ground war on multiple fronts and few allies, otherwise whatever Obama’s now doing.

At the end of October, 27 immigrant women detainees began a hunger strike, demanding an end to mistreatment and their immediate release from the T. Don Hutto detention center near Austin, Texas. Most of the women were asylum seekers from Central America, which has seen a surge in migrants fleeing violence and abuse. The hunger strike reportedly surged to as many as 125 women, even as immigration officials denied it was taking place. Then, the hunger strikers said they faced retaliation. At least two women who participated in the hunger strike were transferred from the women's detention center near Austin to an overwhelmingly male detention center run by the GEO Group, another major private prison operator, in Pearsall, Texas, nearly 200 miles away. On Thursday, one of those two women, Amalia Leal, a Honduran asylum seeker, called Democracy Now!'s Amy Littlefield from detention. She has been detained for seven months after re-entering the United States following a prior deportation. ...
David Waldman returns tomorrow for the KITM Thanksgiving Special, today enjoy the KITM pre-Thanksgiving Special Special: Turkey does not put Putin in a festive mood. Greg Dworkin rounds up some new polls. (With polls, consider if the poll is of Republicans, for the election, the primaries, Iowa, New Hampshire, or an aggregate, or listen to the show as Greg considers it.) Greg predicts Cruz vs Rubio, but it could be Cruz vs Trump. Either way, Cruz rubs his hands diabolically. Is Donald Trump just bigger than The Truth? If so, why does the truth keep lying about Donald Trump? Ben Carson bails on one big lie, as Trump doubles the double down. To recap: The Media has noticed Donald Trump lies: Like the one about thousands in New Jersey celebrating after 9/11. Or the one about fake crime statistics and general race-bating. The Media has noticed that Donald Trump lies a lot: Here are 6 Donald Trump lies. Donald Trump is constantly lying. Donald Trump’s fact-free campaign. Donald Trump’s ...
In the last GOP debate, Rand Paul discussed the harm the Fed does to the ordinary person. As usual, the Left -- you remember, the people who supposedly "question authority" -- leaped to the defense of an longstanding institution.

Bobby Jindal dropped out of the presidential race, but he couldn’t pull David Waldman down with him. David will be on this week for at least today and tomorrow, but then he has to start preheating his oven. Ben Carson is usually a good surgeon, not necessarily a good historian, even though he wrote a book. Maybe his wife & co-writer Candy Carson did the proofreading. Greg Dworkin brings good news for poll fans — a lot of polls! Greg reminds us that there’s a big difference between the "Republican electorate" (i.e. primary) and the "electorate" (i.e. general election): So, Trump leads the polls, especially with the white working class, which is as predicted. But, if only Mitt were there, it would be different (at least in New Hampshire)! And, while everyone is yapping about Trump’s lead, have you looked at Hillary’s? Hillary Clinton is the most trusted to handle terrorism. Donald Trump has been compared to leaders in the past, today Greg and David talk about Trump’s many parallels w ...

You won’t be able to hear David Waldman’s Kagro in the Morning live today, because it is no longer morning and so today’s broadcast has ended. But — hit the link above and it is just as good! Greg Dworkin brings us the horse race in progress: Donald Trump manages to stay in the presidential race by, well, leading the polls. Ted Cruz is climbing — quicker than Marco Rubio, with Ben Carson dropping. Predictions still estimate Rubio in good shape. Bernie Sanders reaches a new high, which may get him NH, maybe not IA. The French president promises to get tougher if re-elected. Trump promises to be so fascist it’ll make your head spin. Kelly Ayotte finds she can’t get conservative enough.

It is time to address the Syrian Refugee Freakout, and that is just what David Waldman does today — aided by the full KITM all-star lineup: Greg Dworkin, Armando, and Joan McCarter! But first, the polls are out and Greg Dworkin has got them: Carson slowly falls, Rubio slowly rises, Donald Trump’s demise is postponed for a while. How is the big picture been changing? Bye Bye Bobby — he had a number of reasons to go back to Louisiana. Top Carson advisor knows Ben Carson is no rocket scientist when it comes to foreign policy. Military leaders concerned that Washington hasn’t learned a thing from previous wars. Republicans defiant in their plan to throw out the jews deny refuge to Syrians, which does not seem to be a good long-term plan.
