Co hosts Kim G. and Momma Politico are tackling the big issues that won't go away with great guests and tell-it-like it is conversation about the things that really matter. Their aim is to air the voices that need to be heard and that is exactly what they do for two hours every Sunday evening.
Guest interviews are interspersed with great music and host chat and listener call in questions. Recent shows have tackled healthcare for the uninsured in America, how the GOP is eviscerating public education, women and the Arab Spring with former CNN middle east expert, Octavia Nassar , and just last week an interview with Wendell Potter, whistle blower and author of the book Deadly Spin. All of this is interspersed with kickass country music and cool political satire. There is never a dull moment, I assure you.
Kim G. is the founder of A World of Progress and the brains behind its expansion into growing multi faceted online presence dedicated to honest progressive principles and the airing of the truth. A native Texan, Kim, after a stint in the Air Force and service in combat as a medic during the first Gulf War, carrved out a successful corporate career in the health care insudstry( and I do mean industry)
She did well and ended up with big bucks and a place in the boardroom, but life in the fast lane just didn't do it for her, and after seeing the dark underbelly of American capitalism, Kim cashed in her chips and checked out, opting for a spiritual retreat to a remote cabin in the mountains of North Carolina.
AWOP radio came out of Kim's personal voyage of self discovery on that mountaintop and it shows. The guests she features, the music she chooses, the issues she tackles all reflect a marvelous concern and authenticity that is rare on the American political scene these days. I'm thinking we need more of this kind of thing all along the political spectrum and throughout the media. Personally, I am totally in support of someone whose loyalty to ethical concerns trumps money, power, and the bottom lline.
