AlterNet Radio: Stop Talking Nonsense About the Economy!; Wonkette's Rebecca Schoenkopf; Lawrence Lessig on Saving Our Democracy

This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, we speak with Anat Shenker-Osorio, author of Don't Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense About the Economy. Anat's research offers fascinating insights into how progressives end up abandoning their values when making economic arguments -- and offers ideas about how we can hold these debates on our own ground.


Then we're joined by Rebecca Schoenkopf, editrix of Wonkette.com. Rebecca explains the inimitable "Wonkette voice," and tells us about "tripping balls" at the Democratic National Convention.

Finally, Steven Rosenfeld interviews Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig about the growing movement to reform our corrupt campaign finance system.

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 4 pm EST at 1480 AM. If you're anywhere else, you can stream it live at  We Act Radio , and if you miss it, check back later for a podcast. 

UPDATE: Here it is!
