Memorial Day today on Air America

I'll be filling in for Ron Reagan today from 6-9PM ET on At 7:30 ET, I'll be interviewing Leon Cooper, the subject of this film, "Return to Tarawa."

At the top of the show, shortly after 6pm, I'll speak with Jason Pollock, filmmaker, writer, and activist who has just finished writing, producing, and directing his first film called, "The Youngest Candidate", the 1st feature doc ever produced by David Letterman’s company, Worldwide Pants, in partnership with Oscar winner Lawrence Bender (producer of ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, etc..) and Balance Vector Productions. It follows the story of 4 teens that ran for public office in America.

Jason took to Twitter to help promote his film, and has amassed a ridiculous 48,028 followers! You can follow him on Twitter too... just look for @jason_pollock.

And lots more... I hope you'll finish off your Memorial Day weekend with me later today, 6-9PM ET on Air America.  And feel free to call in at 866-303-2279.
