Ani and Lyn unpack some of the ideas of Lies, Incorpartated and more

Have you dear listener been having trouble believing what you hear or read lately, or wondering why some of our fellow citzens are lapping up  what seems to be impossible and contradictory stories as truth? Well, Ari Rabin-Havt and Media Matters wrote a book, Lies Incorporated the World of Post- Truth Politics, that attempts to give some clarity and this insane subject. Mr. Rabin-Havt gave a talk about it that was aired on Alternative Radio this Tuesday, but we really thought this topic deserved more discussion and conversation. Join us for just that, we'll take calls and of course your pledge of support, we'll even have some of these books for thank you gifts.
