On the #RADIO show this week we talk about hope in a time when a dangerous tide of hatred, violence, and suspicion is rising in America — whether aimed at Arab and Muslim Americans, women and the places we seek health care, Black people, immigrants and refugees, or people just going about their daily lives.  We also talk about the workplace policies needed for millennials who are all grown up and having babies;  and about the national budget negations and if there will be another government shut down.  Then we close the show with great tips for cooking delicious foods during the holidays from an award-winning chef and author.
*Special guests include: Pastor Michael McBride, PICO (@pastormykmac) Christina Postolowski, Young Invincibles (@YoungInvincible)Bob Greenstein, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (@GreensteinCBPP); Todd Gray, Equinox and author of The New Jewish Table (@EquinoxDC)
