Saved by the Bob

After our scheduled guest had to postpone at the last minute, the ever-entertaining Bob Flaherty rescues us with his usual blend of humor and human interest stories. His latest column for the Daily Hampshire Gazette covers former Amherst resident Kimi Takesue’s documentary about Uganda, “Where Are You Taking Me?”

Once again, Bill makes his case against casinos, and pleads his case for an even better idea.

As always, Bill Scher gives us the scoop on the political lay of the land in his Progressive Breakfast.

Take me to the RiverCulture…

Turners Falls RiverCulture Project was just honored by the Mass Cultural Council with a Commonwealth Award. RiverCulture Director Lisa Davol tells us about the work they’ve been doing to revitalize the former mill town.

Bill has an idea to revitalize the state economy, but he probably won’t be getting any awards for it.

And Bill Scher keeps us updated on the antics of those monkeys down in Washington.

Conventions, Casinos, and Cannabis

We talk to Franklin-Hampshire State Senator Stan Rosenberg about the recent state Democratic convention, and what he thinks about Deval Patrick’s chances for re-election. We also have an in-depth discussion about the senator’s decision to vote for casinos in Massachusetts, wherein Bill makes his case for legalizing marijuana.
