— Investigative reporter GREG PALAST on stealing back your vote
Investigative journalist GREG PALAST updates us on “stealing back your vote.” We’ll discuss his new project, working with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.. The BBC news story and the investigative comic book are now available.
Palast is best known in his native USA as the journalist who, for the Observer (UK), broke the story of how Jeb Bush purged thousands of black Florida citizens from voter rolls before the 2000 election, thereby handing the White House to Jeb’s brother George.
Greg’s bestseller “Armed Madhouse” has been called “at once scary, infuriating, fascinating and frustrating,” Palast himself has been dubbed “a fire-breathing investigative reporter.” His other recent bestseller is “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.” Before becoming a journalist, he was an investigator of corporate fraud and racketeering.
TV CLIP from BBC:
“Set up to steal it again.” Is 2008 already fixed?

INVESTIGATIVE COMIC:

— Philanthropy advisor TRACY GARY on unfreezing economically

Sophisticated financial systems around the globe are under severe stress, and fear gripped Wall Street this week, as it lost roughly $2.4 trillion in market value.
Our guest, Tracy Gary, has spent her life connecting two groups: people with money, and people with great ideas about change. We’ll look at the paralyzed feeling many people are getting in the face of the economic turmoil, and get some ideas about moving forward. We’ll discuss with her some ideas about bolstering communities, and about the importance of nonprofit groups’ contribution to solutions even as governments and corporations spiral downward.


Tracy is a Houston-based donor activist, philanthropic and legacy advisor and nonprofit entrepreneur. She has been on over 30 boards of directors and has help to start 18 nonprofits and foundations including Resourceful Women and Changemakers. She currently heads Inspired Legacies, which will help to catalyze billions of dollars of the public good through linking of powerful dreamers, dreammakers and advisors.
Tracy is the co-author of Inspired Philanthropy: Your Step by Step Guide to Creating a Giving Plan. Among numerous awards she has won: the Stick Your Neck Out Award from the Giraffe Society, and 21 Leaders for the 21st Century, from Women’s eNews.
