Kevin Zeese is joined by substitute co-host Kyle McCarthy, fellow at the Backbone Campaign and co-founder with Natalia Abrams of StudentDebtCrisis.org. They discuss the growing crisis of student loan debt which is being compared to the previous sub-prime mortgage crisis. See their article in the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kyle-mccarthy/student-debt-crisis_b_1777116.html. The next guest is Debra Leigh Scott who blogs at junctrebellion.wordpress.com as the Homeless Adjunct. She is working on a book and movie called "Junct: The Trashing of Higher Ed in America." See 2255films.blogspot.com for more on the documentary. And then Steve Horn of DeSmogBlog.com joins us to talk about the de-funding of public universities and the way this opens a vacuum for corporate money to come in and both shape research results and use the university to legitimize their propaganda.
