P.I.D. Radio 11/09/09: Fort Hood, Orlando, Ukraine

THE SHOOTINGS at Fort Hood on November 5 dominate the news today, and rightly so. We discuss Major Nidal Malik Hasan and his connection to a couple of the 9/11 hijackers. We also discussed an odd detail connected to the shootings in Orlando the day after the terror event at Fort Hood. And what is reported as an H1N1 outbreak in Ukraine continues to spread rapidly.

P.I.D. Radio 8/4/09: Single Payer Player

AFTER THE excitement of torrential rains this morning and Sam’s big adventure in the backyard this afternoon, settling in to talk about whether or not the president wants to nationalize health care is positively relaxing. Also: it’s President Obama’s birthday — where was he born (hint: it’s Hawaii, and if you even HINT otherwise, you’re clearly a racist xenophobic wingnut who needs to be stopped at all costs)?
