Ed is still doing great progressive talk radio. Check here for the Fallon Forum weekly broadcast schedule each and every Monday. You can livestream The Fallon Forum at www.fallonforum.com or WRLD.TV from 12:00-1:00, Monday-Friday. Podcasts available, too.)
For years, Bradshaw (yeah, he just goes by one name) helped bring some balance to central Iowa’s airwaves. Bradshaw had his own daily talk show. He also played a key role in helping the Fallon Forum get started.
After being kicked-off the air last year, people wondered what ever would become of Mr. Bradshaw. Maybe he’d move to the big city, try to find a talk-radio niche there. Maybe he’d wash dishes or wait tables at Zombie Burger. And in the fantasy minds of cold-hearted right-wingers, maybe he’d leap to a turbulent, watery death off the Scott Street Bridge.
But no. Our hero waited, watched, collected unemployment, and when the opportunity arose he recreated himself as . . . Bradshaw!
Ok, that’s way too much drama. But seriously. Good news: Starting today, May 14th, Bradshaw’s program is back from 1:00-3:00, Monday-Friday, viewable live at fallonforum.com.
And really, while Bradshaw may be wrong on some of the issues (wrong means “disagrees with me”), the guy’s got a great head for policy, a solid grasp of politics, and a wit that moves faster than a lizard’s tongue. Frankly, I’ve been exceedingly impressed with Bradshaw. He has a whole lot to offer Iowa’s (and America’s) political and news dialogue, and whether or not you like what he has to say, I hope you’ll agree it’s important to include his voice in the conversation.
Meanwhile, on the Fallon Forum, 12:00-1:00 pm also on this website . . . Monday, Steve Falck with the Environment Law Policy Center discusses tax credits for solar energy and geothermal. We also dig into passenger rail, something Governor Branstad needs to step-up to the plate on.
Tuesday, David Osterberg with the Iowa Policy Project tackles the question of how to measure America’s 99% vs 1%. We talk about the Earned Income Tax Credit, tax increment financing, and the insanity of giving Wal-mart and McDonald’s a tax break.
Wednesday, Jeff Weiss and I talk about Afghanistan, the corporate media, and who knows what else.
Thursday, Jonathan Wilson, a Des Moines attorney, is my guest.
Friday, local anarchist Adam Senecaut and I debate anarchy, and also the pros and cons of the recent action involving black-clad marchers sporting masks and an upside-down, torn American flag painted with the words “F- Your System.” Wanna guess whether I’m on the pro or con side of this debate?
So, join the conversation, Monday-Friday, online from 12:00-1:00 pm at fallonforum.com. Call in at 244-0077, or toll free (855) 244-0077. Video and audio podcasts are available, too.
