It’s the final broadcast of TMI with Aldous Tyler from WSUM 91.7 FM in Madison. Joining me today will be Steve Horn by phone about the reopening of drilling in the Macondo Well, Carl Gibson in studio on the Draft Elizabeth Warren movement’s future and a signoff by myself featuring John Fugelsang by phone. It’s all live, one last time today at noon – tune in at WSUM or stream it live via wsum.org. TMI won’t completely disappear, but is moving to a podcast-only format on a manageable schedule, so keep an eye on http://tmitmitmi.com/ for new episodes as they are made, and be sure to catch this final broadcast of the Cure for the Common Media today!
TMI today is on fire! Joining us live in studio are two friends of the program we’re proud to welcome back: John Fugelsang, frequent commentator on life’s absurdities and former host of Current TV’s Viewpoint, and Steve Horn, investigative journalist and research fellow at DeSmogBlog.
John always has great insights into how humanity seems to stumble into itself and even better suggestions on how to keep that from happening, and today we will talk about media and politics: how too often it seems the media seeks to divide and scare us of each other, rather than inform us about what’s happening! John always gives great conversation, so don’t miss it!
Steve will delve into the waters of Lake Michigan near Chicago to show us the latest on what exactly BP spilled there, and how much of it was released, and what kind of danger this may put the Windy City’s drinking supply in. Then, he’ll bring to light the energy export congressional hearings that happened this week, at which discussion of climate change was conspicuously absent.
All that and more today on TMI with Aldous Tyler at noon Central on WSUM 91.7FM in Madison, or streaming live audio via http://wsum.org!
We were joined by John Fugelsang, known far and wide as a comedic talent and presenter via the Stephanie Miller Show, the Bill Press Show as well as his own web-series Caffeinated on PoliPop! and now his weekly program on Current TV, as well as his upcoming daily program on that same network. Here, John and I click and converse about religion, spirituality, sexuality, politics and the common underlying threads between them all, prompting him to ask “Is your show always this deep?” This truly is a remarkable exchange – listen in!
