round table discussion

Chideya and team go to Florida to talk about the ways the American Dream is colliding with reality, and what it means in the voting booth. Chideya speaks with Colonel Allen West, a black Tea Party candidate; residents of a historic black community, where the land has been contaminated by industrial toxins, who say business and politicians have abandoned them; Muslim-Americans in Gainesville; and victors and victims of the foreclosure crisis.

I was a fan of News and Notes, which Faria Chideya hosted, and was saddened when it was cancelled. Glad to see her back!

I heard last nights WNYC 8PM program in my car. The documentary skills and "on the street" educational value of this kind of programming is so important in these times.
We are all needing more enlightening on the more subtle issues of racism as it plays out in the non-academic community. This program does that for us. I want to share it. How do I get a podcast?

I really enjoyed your show on 10/21/2010. Normally on my drive home at 7:30 pm I would listen to The Story or On Point (NPR), but It was a breath of fresh air to hear your show broadcast on NPR as you travel through Florida and describe the politics we have here .
I was touched by the story on the lady name Ruby. It gives everyone a brief insight of how my community in Miami Gardens Florida are hurting from foreclosure. Thank you very much for taking the time to visit Miami-Gardens Florida.
