As we continue to mark 60 years since the Cuban Missile Crisis, we speak to historian and author Gerald Horne about the loose talk versus reality of nuclear weapons. And whether it is economic Jeffrey Sachs being silenced, Kanye West being cancelled, or the retracted letter from hell, journalist Jon Jeter is in the house to discuss culture and media.
On the Ground: Voices of Resistance from the Nation’s Capital gives a voice to the voiceless 99 percent at the heart of American empire. The award-winning, weekly hour, produced and hosted by Esther Iverem, covers social justice activism about local, national and international issues, with a special emphasis on militarization and war, the police state, the corporate state, environmental justice and the left edge of culture and media. The show is heard on two dozen stations across the United States, on podcast, and is archived on the world wide web at www.onthegroundshow.org.
