Want to hear intelligent analysis? Forget the white conservative point of view on the Sunday shows and listen to solid progressives go over the issues of the day.

It's critical for progressives to support progressive voices. Please take some time to support this site.

Virtually Speaking Sundays - 6p PT/9p ET - Listen live or later

Gaius Publius and Marcy Wheeler -- with Jay Ackroyd -- address:

1. Whose in charge here? U.S. elected officials, like the President and Sen. Dianne Feinstein have disavowed knowledge of targets of U.S. intelligence services. Heads of intelligence operations tell bald-faced lies to Congressional oversight committees, and not only retain their jobs, but continue to be treated by the Beltway media as authoritative sources. Who are they spying on and who gives them their orders?

2. Climate change. Existential threat and the most pressing national security issue facing the US.

3. How not to govern. Lessons from Japan and Fukushima damage control.

Can you help us out?
