Films on fracking, Alice Munro's "Dear Life," and Socialism's victories

 Joe Clement hosts this last show closing out 2012.  We hear an upbeat assessment of socialism's unheralded (by the left)  successes over the long haul; a review of the great short story writer Alice Munro's latest collection; and a discussion of two movies about fracking, one by local film maker Gus Van Sant.  Following Bill Resnick's and James Livingston's conversation about socialism, Joe Clement reads a passage from Marx and Engels's Communist Manifesto discussing types of socialism, and you can read it here.
