Author and editorial cartoonist Ted Rall is the first guest; he explains the latest developments
in his legal battle with the Los Angeles Times, and the wider problem of how big corporations 
now use anti-SLAPP statues to stop less-powerful plaintiffs from having their cases heard by juries.
In the second half of the show, Robert Manning and Kenneth Dubroff introduce a new grassroots-based 
nuclear-disarmament advocacy group they created, and how they hope to influence decision-makers.
They point out that the nuclear nations' arsenals of today are even more dangerous than those of the 1960s.

The panelists heard on the program are Abby Martin, Nora Barrows-Friedman, Eleanor Goldfield, John Collins, Nicole Eigbrett, and Steve Peraza. 
They address topics ranging from Palestine to Black leadership to the corporate press' misleading portrayals of who the "Trump voters" were.

Eleanor Goldfield explains the need for an alternative to those sites. Then Bill Ottman

9/11 activists Jenna Orkin and Jon Gold are Mickey's guests for the hour. Rather than considering who the perpetrators might've been, these guests discuss the public health disaster that followed the attacks, when thousands of emergency workers and area residents became ill from the toxins spread by the fires and collapse of the World Trade Center. Jon Gold also calls out some of the lies told by politicians (both federal and local) about 9/11, as well as the failures of the 9/11 Commission.
