Maine Currents 10/7/15

Producer/Host: Amy Browne

Those of you who enjoy the witty commentary of Jim Hightower several times a week here on WERU are in for a treat– today we’re bringing you a full hour! The radio commentator, writer, public speaker, and author of several books, including his most recent: “Swim Against The Current: Even A Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow” gave 2 talks at the University of Maine last week. Thursday afternoon he participated in the weekly lecture series sponsored by the Marxist & Socialist Studies interdisciplinary minor and that evening he delivered the annual Howard B. Schonberger Peace and Social Justice Memorial Lecture. The first talk, which we’re bringing you today on Maine Currents was called “Corporate Elites and Their Small-minded Political Servants Are Creating the Increasingly Shrinking America”.
