He has won awards for both his fiction and non-fiction, and has been published in both North America and Europe. Michael’s business experience spans over 25 years in high-technology start-up companies (the most recent of which was acquired by Thomson Reuters in 2006). As an executive and leader he has pioneered work in corporate social networking, textual and language analysis and professional services methodologies.

Michael and I will discuss the so-called “two party system” and the future of each branch of what Ralph Nader and yours truly call “the corporate party.” www.chasingglennbeck.com

And … our pal STEVE WIEHE will check in from Florida to give us his take on current events.

For music we will enjoy the blues of Big Mama Thornton! 1926-1984. First to record Hound Dog in 1952! Elvis, like many white recording artists of that era got all the bucks for that one! Today’s selections feature Big Moma with the Muddy Waters Blues Band, circa 1966.
