AlterNet Radio: Our Bizarre Border Politics; Will a Deal Get Done in DC?; Meet the Teacher Who Crashed an ALEC Meeting

This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, we're joined by Tom Barry, director of the Transborder Project and author, most recently, of Border Wars, about the unique politics of our Southern border, immigration and drugs.


Then we're joined by Martin Longman, the proprietor of the Booman Tribune. Martin and AlterNet's Joshua Holland discuss the aftermath of the election --  fiscal slopes and Republican reboots and filibuster reform in the Senate.

Finally, we're joined by Sabrina Joy Stevens, a teacher and education activist who recently crashed a meeting of the American Legislative Affairs Council (ALEC) and gave them a piece of her mind. 

Here's the podcast -- enjoy!
