Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week, another edition of the Wizards of Money, on predatory lending practices and how they target low income seniors. Also excerpts from a teach-in on Dubya's new war, and how predatory religious fanaticism and racism have played, and are playing in the rush to war.
In our first hour, we review the response of US citizens to 2001-09-11 and read The Limits of Revenge and Rhetoric by Tim Wise, calling for a more considered response to the attacks. We then hear a thirteen minute speech from community forum, Asma Barlas, entitled Why do They Hate Us?, from a forum No More Victims held on 2001-09-23. We then play a recording of a rally held on 2001-09-23, we hear Professor Tirawa (?). Following this, Banking on Poverty, the longest episode of Wizards of Money, on predatory lending. We conclude the show with a call to save the Fingerlakes from the gas drilling.
Thanks to Wizards of Money
