  • The Mass Poor People's Assembly & Moral March on Washington is Going Digital!

    Before the COVID-19 pandemic, almost 700 people were dying every day in the U.S. because of the crisis of poverty. And because of this nation’s high tolerance for death, as long as those who are dying are poor and people of color, the national response to this pandemic has only further exposed the country’s distorted morality.

  • Introducing the CalMatters College Journalism Network

    More than 3 million students. Hundreds of campuses. A state higher education budget of $36 billion. As we’ve heard so often lately, California is a nation-state, and its system of colleges and universities is equally gargantuan.

  • Noam Chomsky on Trump's Disastrous Coronavirus Response, WHO, China, Gaza and Global Capitalism

    How did the United States — the richest country in the world — become the worldwide epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, with one person dying of COVID-19 every 47 seconds? We spend the hour with Noam Chomsky, the world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author, discussing this unprecedented moment in history, and its political implications. Chomsky reflects on the significance of the Bernie Sanders campaign, calling it "an extraordinary success" that "completely shifted the arena of debate and discussion" in the United States. He also responds to President Trump's cuts to U.S. support for the World Health Organization and the surge in deaths in the United States to another record high, and discusses conditions in Gaza, the rise of authoritarianism around the world, and the progressive response

  • Mike Davis: Workers Face "Sophie's Choice" Between Income & Health as 50 States Reopen Amid Pandemic

    All 50 states will be at least partially reopened this Memorial Day weekend, as the U.S. death toll from the COVID-19 outbreak tops 95,000 and some states prepare for a surge in cases. We're joined by historian and writer Mike Davis, who says in Jacobin that "Reopening the Economy Will Send Us to Hell."

  • "Diarrhea, Dehydration, Hunger, Exhaustion": India's Rural Poor Suffer Most Under Lockdown

    India just saw its biggest spike in coronavirus cases in 24 hours with 6,000 new reported infections, as an estimated 3 million seek shelter from a powerful cyclone and tens of thousands have no work or food. We go to Mumbai for an update from renowned journalist P. Sainath, founder of the People's Archive of Rural India.

From the General Manager

  • We're Trying Something New

    Community media, news, services, and journalism are all cornerstones of our democracy and are more critical than ever. Many community organizations, publications, and independent media companies will become casualties of the pandemic. Our world has changed profoundly and KPFK is adapting to it, so we can still be here for you.

    — Anyel Z Fields

  • You're Invited: Where Does KPFK Go From Here?

    Tomorrow at 7 PM, KPFK General Manager will be hosting a conversation about KPFK, its place in Southern California, and its future. 

    — Anyel Z Fields

  • There Is No Replacement For An Activist State

    We are watching how our long battle in bringing a progressive vision to our democracy is finally beginning to take hold. We were here long before Bernie Sanders and the New York Times shifted the conversation from liberal to progressive thinking.
