Additionally, they talk about the issue of homelessness in California and how this problem has worsened in recent years.

    Recent legislative elections in Greece have brought about a change to the party in control for the Mediterranean nation that has been suffering through major economic problems over the past few years. Dr. Michael Nevradakis, Host of Dialogos Radio, joins today's program to give his take on the results from this election, relations between Greece and the European Union, and how politics in Greece compares to those in the United States and United Kingdom.

Rabbi Yaakov Shapiro, a Speaker & Author, joins Garland and Lee to discuss the topic of political Zionism, details about gaining citizenship in Israel, and the role Alan Dershowitz plays in the pro-Zionist community in the United States.
