On the Show:

–Alondra Nelson, Columbia professor and author of Body and Soul, joins us to discuss the Black Panther Party’s healthcare platform, and David wonders whether a history of violence prevented the BPP from being taken more seriously on healthcare.

–Scott Keeter, Director of Survey Research at the Pew Research Center, joins us to talk about a recent Pew poll showing almost half of Americans can’t name a single Republican Presidential candidate.

–Sir Darryl Roberts fills in for Producer Louis Motamedi today during Louis’ vacation to Turkey.

–Occupy Wall Street continues, and right wing media won’t mention actual possible First Amendment violations of protesters.

–Erick Erickson’s 53% movement couldn’t be more absurd, and should actually make people realize they should be supporting the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

–David is sick and tired of the Bible being used to reference “traditional marriage,” given that it also refers to traditional marriage including women as property, stoning women to death, and  more.

–David and Darryl address the audience question of whether President Barack Obama would “be alive today” if he had fought harder for the change many say he promised during his first Presidential campaign.

–Mitt Romney says Chris Christie is on his short list for Vice President, and we wonder whether someone who says they aren’t ready to be President is really qualified to be Vice President, given that a primary responsibility is to be ready to replace the President.

–Will the beginning of the Google Translate era lead to less bilingual people, and be a general setback for society as a whole?

–Emails on white supremacist David Duke endorsing the Tea Party, a waitress in DC thinking David was on a gay date with Jay Tomlinson from Best of the Left Podcast, vintage First Amendment misunderstanding among conservatives, and more.

–On the Bonus Show: Is guest co-host Darryl Roberts afraid of lawsuits, Dutch trains replace bathrooms with plastic bags, family lost in corn maze calls 911, more.
