Every Monday from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
A program of social and political commentary from a socialist-feminist, anti-racist and anti-colonial point of view.
The Old Mole burrows down to the roots of the great issues of our time – the struggles of ordinary people for democratic and sustainable ways of life. The Mole goes where corporate media fear to tread, supporting grassroots challenges to top-down authority and giving voice to movements that shake the foundations of an unjust society. The Moles' perspective is democratic, anti-capitalist, feminist, anti-colonial and anti-racist. We count Karl Marx as a friend but are open to other voices from the left. The show includes analyses of global politics and economics, local grassroots activism, segments on the Left & the Law, and reviews of films, books, music, and theater.
Contributors include: Julian Ankney, Larry Bowlden, Sarah Chivers, Joe Clement, Norm Diamond, Sharon Grant, Jan Haaken, Desiree Hellegers, Patricia Kullberg, Luisa Martinez, Laurie Mercier, Chelsea Ratzlaff, Bill Resnick, Victoria Saucedo, Mike Snedecker, Roben White, Matt Witt
