 Frank Cordaro has appeared on the show several times. He’ll discuss the upcoming Occupy Iowa protest at The World Food Prize event. The Occupy movement will target “the corporate ownership of the World Food Prize, especially its dominance by genetically modified seed interests.”

This show marked the first appearance of two new segments, Buzz the Space Dog and Beltway Sandy Snore, Journalsm Whore. As always, Chuck and Mike closed the show with The News From Mount Liberty.
