How does this decision factor into the current state of press freedom, and how can individuals support independent media organizations?

    The Skripal poisoning incident in the UK has led to the expulsion of Russian officials in many countries. However, some countries, including Greece and Cyprus, have not taken such steps. Michael Nevradakis joins the show to discuss this decision by the Greek government.

    President Trump has indicated his desire to undertake and complete major infrastructure projects. How might these projects impact the environment and specifically our public water systems?

    Lawsuits targeting free speech seem to be on the rise. Is this now a new go-to tactic for those looking to silence speech and opinions with which they disagree?
