Michael Tanner on FIGHTING POVERTY!


Our guest today is Michael Tanner, a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute who has devoted many years of life to the study of poverty in America, and to developing innovative solutions to this enduring challenge. Michael seeks solutions that transcend the political back and forth of the day, and he can serve as an inspiration to all of us that strive for the day when people of all political stripes come together in search of common solutions to pressing problems. Michael's forthcoming book on the topic, "The Inclusive Economy: How to Bring Wealth to America's Poor," will be available soon. 

For those listening to hear Michael, welcome! We are glad to have you, and hope you'll become a regular listener to the show as we explore many topics with many interesting people. Thank you!



Hello friends, our guest today is Mr. Gary Graff, noted popular music journalist and critic. Gary has published extensively on popular music, and his highly acclaimed book on Bruce Springsteen is considered a seminal work. Gary is talking with me today about how the music industry has evolved, some of his concerns in that regard, and what can be done to get things back on track. This is a great opportunity to hear from a keen observer of the music scene, and his words are...so important! Thank you Gary for being on the program!
