In times like these, we need each other. Where will you be a week after the November elections?
Whether you're celebrating with relief, gathering your strength for four-more-years, or banging your head in frustration, come out to hear Amy Goodman deliver her unique brand of incisive, rousing, and inspiring commentary on the state of the Nation!
Amy Goodman is the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on 650 radio and television stations in North America. Time Magazine named Democracy Now! in its "Pick of the Podcasts."
Goodman and her brother, journalist David Goodman, co-authored the NY Times bestseller "Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders, and the People Who Fight Back," and the New York Times bestseller "The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media That Love Them." Their latest book is "Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times." She writes a weekly column (also produced as an audio podcast) syndicated by King Features, for which she was recognized in 2007 with the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Reporting.
Pioneering the largest public media collaboration in the U.S., Democracy Now! is broadcast on Pacifica, NPR stations, low power FM, College and Community Radio stations as well as Public Access TV and PBS stations, and on both TV satellite networks -- DISH Network channel 9415 Free Speech TV, 9410 Link TV, and on Direct TV channel 375.
