The streets of Catalonian cities have come to a stand still as pro-independence activists launch a general strike after Sunday’s vote. On today’s show we’ll turn to Sebastiaan Faber, a professor of Hispanic Studies at Oberlin College about the vote, Spanish police violence, historical context, and what comes next in the fight for independence. Then, Ramesh Srinivasan joins us to discuss how fake news proliferated in the wake of the Las Vegas mass shooting and how companies like Facebook and Google continue to elevate dishonest reporting for click-based ad revenues. Finally we’ll speak with Dr. Terry Allen Kupers about his new and powerful book, Solitary: The Inside Story of Supermax Isolation and How We Can Abolish It. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
