Behind the News with Doug Henwood

Live on KPFA at 12:00 PM (Noon) Pacific Time: Thursdays
See the KPFA Program Grid for more details.

Behind the News covers the worlds of economics and politics and their complex interactions, from the local to the global. Shows typically consist of some opening comments by host Doug Henwood on the recent news, followed by two or three interviews with authors, activists, academics, and other knowledgeable sorts. Since mystification is one of the tricks that power uses to maintain itself, emphasis is always placed on clarifying the complex.

Topics covered include the broad economy and the financial markets, trade and globalization, income distribution and poverty, political candidates (with an emphasis on their general bogosity), Latin American resistance to neoliberalism, crime and imprisonment, financing health care, environmental economics, and the culture of money. Of course, that list will evolve as circumstances warrant.

Doug Henwood

Host/producer profile

Doug Henwood has been hosting Behind the News since 1996; his radio career began in 1989, with commentaries delivered on the late and deeply missed Samori Marksman's show. His day job is as a writer and editor. He edits Left Business Observer, a newsletter he founded in 1986, and is a contributing editor of The Nation. He is the author of three books - The State of the USA Atlas (1994), Wall Street (1997), and After the New Economy (2004). He's at work on a study of the American ruling class, whoever that might be.
