In For Ron Reagan Tonight

Tonight, I'll be guest hosting the Ron Reagan Program on Air America radio, from 6-9pm PT. In my usual slot (11pm-1am) will be a "best of" program, featuring my interviews with insurance industry whistleblower Wendell Potter, and Russ Baker, author of "Family of Secrets" about the Bush family.

I hope you'll be able to join me a little earlier than usual this evening, as we continue the dialog on health care/insurance reform.

Throughout the course of our three hours together this evening, I'll be joined by Frank Schaffer, author of Crazy for God: How I Grew Up As One Of The Elect, Helped Found The Religious Right, And Lived To Take All (Or Almost All) Of It Back, who has written a couple of pieces for over the past few days on the nastiness we're witnessing at the Town Hall Meetings... From Friday: Right Wing Turncoat Gives the Inside Scoop on Why Conservatives are Rampaging Town Halls; From Today: The Threat is Real: Why Right Wing Rage At Townhall Meetings Could Quickly Turn Deadly.

And Vincent Bugliosi will join us in the last hour of the show tonight. Bugliosi, of course, famously and successfully prosecuted the Manson family for their murderous rampage forty years ago this week of Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles, and detailed the story in the best selling crime book of all time, Helter Skelter.

We'll talk a bit about that, and also delve into his other book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, and see if there's been any progress!

I hope you'll join in! Listen live here, and call in at 866-303-2270!
