This interview is "must" listening for anyone in danger of becoming complacent. An articulate firebrand and one of the world's leading advocates of nuclear disarmament, environmentalism and citizen action delivers a scathing wake-up call about abuses of power in American government, media and industry, and the urgent need to truly care for the planet and each other. "Take back your country," she says. "The president isn't your father. You have to stop behaving as children. You've got to grow up and say, 'Right! This is my country. I'm taking over, and I'm going to make sure it functions in a totally compassionate way.'" (hosted by Michael Toms)
