    Investigative journalist, blogger, troublemaker and muckraker Brad Friedman's investigative interviews, analysis and commentary on today's current events (if they matter) and, even, occasional visits to the dark recesses of his mind...

    On today's BradCast: What's really going on in Baltimore? We discuss the riots and the reason and turn to Fox "News", of all places, for a bit of sanity! (No, really. Thank you, Shep Smith!)

    Then, Doug Hughes, the U.S. postal worker who landed his gyrocopter on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol to bring attention to the need for campaign finance reform in the wake of Citizens United, joins me for a conversation that focuses — for a change — on why he actually did it. See his website TheDemocracyClub.org for more.
