Greg Grandin

This week we look at Empire and Resistance in Latin America, and beyond. Professor and author Greg Grandin talks about the enduring influence of Henry Kissinger's bloody and brutal foreign policy. Grandin has been examining Empire in all its forms across seven books, including his latest, "Kissinger’s Shadow," out this month. A professor of history at NYU and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Grandin writes about U.S. foreign policy, Latin America, genocide, and human rights. He also served as a consultant to the United Nations truth commission on Guatemala. Later in the show, we look at an excerpt from a new film about the 2009 U.S.-supported coup in Honduras. Also, watch Laura's analysis on war criminals in Guatemala and in the U.S.

Someone turns 65 every 8 seconds in this country, and as our elderly population grows, so does the need to build an economy around our future selves. In this episode, three leaders in the age justice movement share their ideas about how we can age with dignity and power and change our society to reflect just that. Then we visit the largest home care cooperative in the U.S. to take a look at age justice, and worker justice, in practice.

Fifty years ago at the Stonewall bar in New York, gay pride took the form of a riot, not a parade. Today, the question remains as relevant as ever: Just how do we define "love is love," and what are we willing to do to defend one another? This week, I speak with a group of LGBTQIA leaders who each has a different relationship to being out and proud. We've come a long way they say, but in the next 50 years we have a long way to go.
