‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR OCTOBER 29, 2021: The Rev. William Barber Rallies on Capitol Hill… A New Inflection Point for Human Needs in the U.S… Jon Jeter on the War on Truth… Also on Dave Chappelle’s “The Closer”… Plus Headlines


As the United States arrives at an inflection point about a federal budget for human needs versus billionaire and corporate greed, we speak to the Rev. William Barber and the Poor People’s Campaign rallies on Capitol Hill. And then, journalist Jon Jeter joins us for this month’s deep dive into culture and media — from the war on truth, to the right-wing embrace of political violence, to the controversy of over Dave Chappelle’s Netflix special ‘the Closer.’ Plus more headlines.

The show is made possible only by our volunteer energy, our resolve to keep the people’s voices on the air, and by support from our listeners.
