For many, mass movements have made them aware of media's failure to inform and represent them. Activists are now working to make their own media, and to rebuild the empowering media infrastructures that have existed previously. This week, we visit a local, innovative radio station in Kingston, NY and talk to Pod Save the People's DeRay Mckesson, activist and author, about how he's turned social media into social justice.  Support theLFShow

10 years since the financial crash we've learned that there exists in the US not just one economy, but many, as well as many kinds of economic actors. From platform cooperatives to cryptocurrency, people are continuously building economic alternatives. So says Nathan Schneider, crusader for collective ownership and author of "Everything for Everyone: the Radical Tradition That Is Shaping The Next Economy." Plus, professor and author Virginia Eubanks on how government and corporations are erasing social services through unequal digital practices.  Music: “You Are the One the World Becomes” by Morley, from her new album ‘1000 Miles’. Support theLFShow

"Cities accumulate capital, people, aspirations, and power. But, whose power? Whose aspirations? How can we find in the city a place of possibility?"

Music spotlight: disco remake of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" by Jason Eli Featuring Nathan Haines-Flute/Horns & Cherie Mathieson-vocals.  Support theLFShow
