    Renegade Inc.: Angrynomics

    Renegade Inc.: Angrynomics

    A heady mix of precarious employment, stagnant wages, diminished opportunities and a contracting economic pie has pushed many people to the limit.

    This means how people experience the world and how politicians and spin doctors explain the world creates a mismatch and an anger – this is what economists Eric Lonergan and Mark Blythecall call Angrynomics.

    CrossTalk, QUARANTINE EDITION: No trust

    CrossTalk, QUARANTINE EDITION: No trust

    We live in an age of disbelief. The people don’t trust governments and governments don’t trust the people. How did it come to such a lack of mutual recognition? And, more importantly, is there a way out? Is dialogue possible?

    CrossTalking, with Joti Brar & George Szamuely.

    Going Underground, Inside the CIA’s mind control program: MK Ultra (Stephen Kinzer)

    Going Underground, Inside the CIA’s mind control program: MK Ultra (Stephen Kinzer)

    On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Stephen Kinzer, author of ‘Poisoner in Chief: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control.’ He discusses the role of Sidney Gottlieb in the CIA’s search for mind control, how he was relatively unknown and had a license to kill from the US government, and how he was the most powerful man in 20th century America. He also discusses Winston Churchill’s demand for bio weapons, the Korean War, and how it served as the beginning of the CIA’s obsession with researching and achieving mind control, the hiring of Nazi scientists by the United States through Operation Paperclip, how Sydney Gottlieb, who had a Jewish background, worked side-by-side with Nazi scientists after the Second World War to conduct medical experiments on live humans, the use of torture, LSD and mass poisonings by Gottlieb and his group of Nazi scientists on African Americans and other victims of the CIA’s attempts at mind control, and more! Finally, we speak to Fiona McEntee, a US immigration lawyer. She discusses the Trump administration and ICE’s attempts to deport foreign students from the USA due to some universities moving to online-only courses amid the coronavirus pandemic, how the Trump administration’s actions are a slap in the face to foreign students, how much foreign students contribute to the US economy, a potential loophole that may save many from deportation, and more!

    Worlds Apart: Loretta Breuning, Professor Emerita of Management at California State University

    Worlds Apart: Loretta Breuning, Professor Emerita of Management at California State University

    If you want to be happy, just be. This maxim, mistakenly attributed to Leo Tolstoy, has found support in neuroscience. Far from being metaphysics, the feel-good vibe is a product of our daily actions and expectations. How can it be maximized in a world that seems to be chronically on edge and on anti-depressants? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Loretta Breuning, Professor Emerita of Management at California State University and author of The Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain Your Brain to Boost Your Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin and Endorphin Levels.

    On Contact: Collateral Murder video

    On Contact: Collateral Murder video

    On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to journalist, Dean Yates, who, 13 years ago, was the head of Reuters’ Baghdad bureau. On July 12, 2007, Yates learned two of his employees, Saeed Chmagh and Namir Noor-Eldeen, had been fired on and killed by the US Army. Their deaths, and those of others, were the focus of the now-infamous video Collateral Murder, leaked by Chelsea Manning and released by Wikileaks.

    Sputnik Orbiting the World: Life after Labour and Press Freedom

    Sputnik Orbiting the World: Life after Labour and Press Freedom

    Just a year ago, he was one of the best-known, most often referred-to Labour Member of Parliament. Now, Chris Williamson is no longer an MP and, even more surprising, he is no longer a member of an organisation he joined in 1976. But losing the parliamentary platform has not curtailed his campaigning. He is involved in many grassroots activities including raising legal funding for the many other former Labour Party members who were suspended and subsequently expelled from the party and want to clear their names. So, just how is Chris Williamson, formerly MP for Derby North, adjusting to life after 44 years in the party?

    Is Julian Assange the most famous ignored political prisoner on the planet? In the UK maybe but not by the rest of the world’s media. Of course, there is, without doubt, journalistic interest in his case here in the UK but this does not appear to be reflected in newspapers or the broadcast media. While he awaits extradition proceedings to the United States, it is clear what is happening to Julian Assange is a major attack on press freedom and any trial will make up a very large chapter in the history of freedom of speech. One man who has continued to raise the banner is Vaughan Smith, founder of the Frontline Club and a good friend of Julian Assange. Vaughan joined Sputnik from his home in Norfolk, where Julian Assange spent his bail time way back in 2010.
