Length: 2s

We apologize, but by the time our show aired, Justin Bieber had to cancel. We're sad but we forge ahead with the Liberadio(!) "To Do" list, Freddie as a bicycle valet, the Davidson County Democratic Party straw poll debrief, and a rundown of the news. Plus, Federal Public Defender Kelley Henry joins us live to tell us the story of her client Gaile Owens, one of two women on Tennessee's death row, and Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper issues an opinion [pdf] on the constitutionality of yet another vanity license plates. Beep, beep, who got the keys to the...ZOMG! Jesus is Lord! [25.4MB] …

Length: 2s

In the second hour we tell you all the fun facts that weren't reported about self-described "Tea Partiers," and we speak to Ian Millhiser, Policy Analyst for Center for American Progress about the upcoming Supreme Court nomination - what it means to a court primarily made up of conservatives "nuts" and what the confirmation process will look like. Then, it's once again time for Karl Frisch and the Media Matters for America Smackdown - this week Karl takes Maureen Dowd and the Sunday morning talk shows to the mat - and a quick but important word about a bill that would outlaw some forms of birth control in Tennessee (which has passed in both the House and Senate and is on its way to the Governor to be signed).

Length: 2s

The Liberadio(!) "To Do" list is long this week and includes marijuana jokes, coveting the Seattle Center Monorail (and flume ride), and a historic march. Plus, love him or hate him, you know Barney Frank would never try to bite the head off a baby bunny - or would he? And we are disgusted with Sarah Palin's unchallenged and unrelenting display of disrespect for the highest office in the land and chagrined - again - at what Tennessee Republicans and, therefore, Tennessee Democrats have decided is going to be the issue to talk about in this campaign. Then, we begin the breakdown of what's going on with voter roll purges in Benton County. [28.14MB] …

Play ball! It's opening day but we don't have just baseball on our minds - there's the Easter weekend, some jobs chatter, college hoops, and the Tennessee state legislature can't say boo to the coal lobby so the feds are coming in to take a good hard look at the quaint little practice of mountaintop removal. Plus, A.C. Kleinheider, who provided the solo byline for Post Politics - the go to place for state and local political news and views - until he was let go last week, joins us for a little debriefing, dodging, and dancing.
