This week’s Ring of Fire Radio, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and David Bender:  Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

This week on Ring of Fire Radio, investigative journalist Greg Palast will be here to talk about BP’s other oil spill that happened just a few weeks ago – a spill that the traditional media in America decided to completely ignore.

We’ve also got Tim Dickinson from Rolling Stone magazine here to tell us how oil companies like BP and Shell are trying to convince the government that they can drill in the arctic with even fewer restrictions and regulations than they had for their rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.

We’ll check in with Mark Potok from the Southern Poverty Law Center, who has been working hard to expose the right wing media figures who continuously spread hate and paranoia to their viewers.

Political satirist Matt Filipowicz will tell us all about how Michael Steele continues to embarrass the Republican Party, and we’ll talk about Glenn Beck’s new online college for his followers.

And as part of Ring of Fire Radio’s on-going, exclusive coverage of the worst oil disaster in our nation’s history, Canadian author Joseph Boyden will be here to tell us about his recent tour of the Gulf Coast and we’ll find out what he witnessed as he travelled along the now oil-stained beaches and marshes.
