Gaius on Ring of Fire: “How to build a powerful sustainable progressive movement”

This is a programming note — I’ll be on Ring of Fire Radio this weekend talking with Mike Papantonio on solutions for progressives and the broader progressive movement.

The 2012 election is over; it’s time for progressives to engage the the next enemy in the field — that would be Democrats. Papantonio and I discuss how to do that — the kind of courage it takes, and the kind of courage we’re calling for.

The kickoff post for the discussion is this one:

■ The importance of “rebranding” politicians who betray progressive principles 

plus my series on office-holding progressives, the latest of which is here:

■ Is the House Progressive Caucus “enabling Obama’s rightward moves?”

There’s excellent back-and-forth in the conversation; please listen if you have a chance. I’ll post the audio if a clip is made, but not all Ring of Fire segments are published as clips.

Who else is on the show?

The lineup for this show is spectacular. From the Ring of Fire website (my emphasis):

Rolling Stone contributing editor Jeff Goodell will tell us about the options that President Obama has to address climate change.

Author and historian Rick Perlstein will tell us how the NRA evolved into one of the most deceptive, and politically inept, organizations in America.

Truth-Out reporter Darwin Graham will join us to discuss the greedy Wall Street banks … [now] snatching up foreclosed homes.

And America Blog’s Gaius Publius will tell us how we can build a powerful, sustainable Progressive movement in America.

It looks like a terrific combo. I’ve only heard my own interview, but I can’t wait to hear the others. Perlstein alone is worth the price of admission, and the Obama–climate discussion is right up my alley, and yours I hope as well.
