This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour...

Up first, we speak with Mallory Ortberg, who writes for Gawker, The Awl and The Hairpin. Mallory tells us about two different utopian fantasies embraced by the right -- Glenn Beck's ... theme park/ planned community in Texas, and The Citadel, a proposed planned community with lots of guns.

Then we're joined by Bill Ong Hing, a professor of law at the University of San Francisco, to discuss the latest round of immigration reform. Ong Hing also explains that there's a more progressive approach to the issue that's hardly ever discussed in the mainstream discourse.
