AlterNet Radio: Chris Hayes on the Failures of Our Elites, Plus Tom Tomorrow, Matt Bors and Dave Zirin

Chris Hayes joins us on this week's AlterNet Radio Hour to talk about his new book, Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy.

Then, Tom Tomorrow and Matt Bors -- two great progressive political cartoonists -- explain what inspires them, talk about what it's like to be a satirist amid the progressive "Obama Wars," and ponder the state of their medium.

We then check in with Peggy Mears, a leader of the Home Defenders' League, about how grassroots activists are going up against the banks to keep people in their homes.

Seld-described 'radical sports writer' Dave Zirin then gives us the scoop on various labor issues in the wide world of sports. 

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 6 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.
