Speakeasy alternating with Bamboozled

I love to talk with people, to find out what makes them tick, what their stories are. Over the years I've interviewed everyone from rockers Michael Franti and Amy Ray, to his holiness Swami Paramand Ji Marahaj of India, to a plethora of local movers and shakers. It's a joy to share this information and these connections with my community.

Speakeasy is a half-hour talk show recorded live on alternate Wednesdays and generally features in-studio guests. The goal of the program is good conversation with folks doing interesting work, in our community and beyond. The show launched Oct. 2008.

Autumn Labbe-Renault hosts and welcomes program suggestions. She may be contacted at autumn AT davismedia DOT org.


Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

The minions of the GOP are taking their shots at the next in line: educators, labor unions, police, fire, etc. Look at www.fcic.gov and read the inquiry examining the real fleecing of the taxpayer. Our attention span is short and hence Scott Walker can reap havoc in WI. Meanwhile the president plays nice and cast the progressive to the wind. We are being marginalized by the hope and change candidate. California has a date with destiny next week. Stay tuned.

The President's budget shares a vision of innovation, education and infrastructure. Congress-GOP-is unlikely to work with him and is committed to his ruin. President Obama's call for $50 billion investment for infrastructure is ludicrous: see infrastructurereportcard.org for more details and a reality check. Meanwhile, our state continues to hemorrhage. Will the governor's call for extension of taxes work? Stay tuned.

The State of the Union theme of innovation U.S.A. , but the GOP questions the wisdom of investments. And so it goes. Meanwhile the Mediterranean is in a state of turmoil as nations there seek to compost their dictators. Here in the Golden State, we have to make some tough decisions about the budget and our future. Davis, meanwhile, prepares for the return of picnic day. Stay tuned!
