Examining Inequality, The Outspoken Women of Islam and More on Shared Sacrifice!

Find out why Shared Sacrifice is the hottest progressive radio show on the internet. Listen this Saturday, from 12:00-2:00 PM MT. Call in at (347) 327-9615.

Matt is back from Korea with interesting stories to tell (where he survived such adventures and misadventures as appearing on Korean television, and being hit by a car). Gary is back from the Democratic National Convention, thoroughly disillusioned with mainstream politics. Join us for an unprecedentedly exciting and provocative edition of the show:

Inequality as a threat to democracy: Gary and Matt interview Sam Pizzigati, editor of Too Much, an online weekly on excess and inequality, and an associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D.C. Mr. Pizzigati has written widely on America's economic divide, with op-eds and articles appearing in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Nation, and a host of other newspapers and periodicals.

Shattering Western stereotypes: Matt interviews two female muslim debaters and debate coaches, Lin Kamaruddin and Adiba Shareen. Outspoken, critical of both the West and the Taliban, bitingly funny, these women will make you think twice about buying into the stereotype of women in Islam as silent or submissive.
