  • Phil and Ted's Sexy Boomer Show, Tuesday Nov. 29 at 1:00 pm, Special Guest Weird Al Yankovic

    Weird Al Yankovic has a huge, fanatical fan base for good reasons. He’s a 5-time Grammy winner and member of a rare group of musicians (U2, Michael Jackson, Madonna Kenny G,) with a top 40 hit for four decades running. Self-proclaimed “Weird Al obsessive” Lin Manuel Miranda credits Al as an inspiration for the hit musical “Hamilton.” It began when a door to door accordion salesman called on Al at the tender age of six. Al was unaffectionately nicknamed “Weird” in school, yet he embraced his weirdness and earned millions of fans. And did Al’s mom really serve him a bowl of sauerkraut every morning and watch him on the school playground through a pair of binoculars? Discover a fascinating side of Weird Al as we celebrate the release of his new sort-of biopic, “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.”

  • LA Theatre Works, Sunday 11/27/22 at 10:00 pm, "Thanksgiving Play" by Larissa FastHorse, starring Josh Stamberg

    A group of politically correct teachers are tasked with creating a Thanksgiving play for their students. They hire a Native American actor to lend authenticity to the proceedings. When it turns out she’s ethnically ambiguous the teachers are left to navigate the resulting pitfalls in this rich satire. Includes a conversation with playwright Larissa FastHorse.

DEMOCRACY NOW

Democracy Now Newsfeed

  • Meet Puerto Rican Journalist Bianca Graulau, Featured in Viral Bad Bunny Video on Injustices in PR

    Puerto Rico’s financial oversight board has voted to extend a contract with LUMA Energy — the private U.S.-Canadian corporation that took over the island’s power grid and is widely denounced by residents on the island for its inconsistent service and high prices. The privatization of Puerto Rico’s power grid, supported by an unelected board appointed by the U.S. government, represents the “everyday consequences of colonialism,” says independent reporter Bianca Graulau, whose latest documentary is called “País de Apagones,” or “Country of Blackouts.”

  • Striking Univ. of California Grad Students Speak Out on Nation's Largest-Ever Higher Education Strike

    The largest higher education strike in U.S. history has entered its third week in an effort to secure livable wages, more child care benefits, expanded family leave and other demands. Some 48,000 academic workers at all 10 University of California campuses are on strike, including teaching assistants, postdoctoral scholars, graduate student researchers, tutors and fellows. We speak with a professor and graduate students at three campuses in the UC system, as a tentative deal with postdoctoral scholars and academic researchers was announced Tuesday by the University of California that does not cover graduate student employees who make up the vast majority of those on strike. “We are the ones who are producing the work. We’re teaching the classrooms. And yet, most of these student workers qualify for food stamps,” says UCLA doctoral student and local union head Enrique Olivares Pesante. UC Davis student researcher Aarthi Sekar describes how international graduate students have also been impacted. We also speak with Nelson Lichtenstein, director of the Center for the Study of Work, Labor, and Democracy at UC Santa Barbara.
