We're back on the air live, and scrambling to catch up on events! But not so much that we avoid heading down the unexpected side alleys that make the show... interesting. There's the continuing Snowden/NSA saga, for starters. Greg Dworkin joined in for the discussion of developments in Egypt, the San Francisco airliner crash, Eliot Spitzer's reentry to electoral politics, Wimbledon, insurers rejecting the "arm the teachers" plan and more. After some discussion of the Bolivian president interlude, Armando called in to elicit some vacation talk, which strangely enough led to explorations of the history (and currency, so to speak) of piracy, and its relationship to the lifestyle gaps (both then and now) between the 99% and the 1%. Wait, what? Well, you'll just have to listen in to follow along.
