Tired of the same old Republican talking points and memes? Longing to hear a discussion of the week's events not framed to push the Overton Window to the right? Listen to Virtually Speaking at 6pm PT/9pm ET where this week, Digby and Stuart Zechman discuss the austerity zombie, this time in response to Gene Sperling's remarks about the necessity of entitlement cuts. Then Stuart gives us some insight into large software development projects involving multiple participants referring to the PPACA. Both issues demonstrate the superiority of "dirty hippie" policies. We discuss the resistance of the Village to popular and effective policy, including the role played by the centrist media.

Listen live or later at Blog Talk Radio

The Virtually Speaking Media Panel: Avedon Carol, Cliff Schecter, David Dayen, Dave Johnson, David Waldman, digby, Gaius Publius, Joan McCarter, Marcy Wheeler, Stuart Zechman
