AlterNet Radio: Have We Reached Peak Wingnut After Sandy Hook?; Abortion Rights on Roe's 40th Birthday; the Bizarre Saga of Manti Teʻo

Great show this week, as Tracy Weitz, a medical sociologist at UC Berkeley, joins us to discuss the right to choose 40 years after Roe v Wade.

Then, Oliver Willis of the Daily Banter and our own Joshua Holland ponder whether the extreme right could possibly become even more unhinged than it has been since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school. 

Finally, The Nation's radical sports writer, Dave Zirin runs down the Manti TeÊ»o saga, and discusses the culture of rape that appears to be endemic to Notre Dame's football program. 

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.
