Program Notes
  • Segment 1:

    The FBI's Mistake is Now Apple's Problem

    We begin with the intensifying battle between the FBI and Apple over finding a way to unlock the encryption on an iPhone belonging to the San Bernardino terrorist. Ross Schulman, the Senior Policy Counsel at the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute joins us to discuss the extent to which the FBI brought this problem on themselves by foolishly resetting the phone’s iCloud password, thus losing the ability to see the phone’s content, and are now browbeating Apple to bail them out of a problem they created. We will also assess where we stand in the battle between security and privacy now that the government is asking for a key to unlock everyone’s private information inside their phone that largely contains a complete roadmap of their life.

  • Segment 2:

    Wall Street's Alarm at Sanders Driving Hillary to the Left

    Then we examine Wall Street’s alarm at the rise of Bernie Sanders and his appeal to young voters and their concern that Sanders is driving Hillary Clinton further to the left so that at the end of the day, if she wins the presidency, she will be committed to a reform agenda and policies unfriendly to the 1%. William K. Black, a Professor of Economics and Law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a founding member of Bank Whistleblowers United, joins us to discuss his article at The Huffington Post “Wall Street’s Message to Young Adults: You are Clueless”.

  • Segment 3:

    Cruz Bashes Rubio With the Bible

    Then finally we speak with David Woodard, a Professor of Political Science at Clemson University and author of “The New Southern Politics”. He is also a political consultant for Republican candidates and we will discuss the latest spat between Rubio and Cruz who today had to fire his communications director for doctoring a video of Rubio walking past Cruz’s father Rafael who was reading the Bible so that the subtitles misquoted Rubio’s remark to have Rubio saying there are not many answers in the Bible. We will also look into next Saturday’s Democratic primary race.
