Speaking Freely airs 9am to 10am on Saturdays. Jim and I will be discussing health care reform with Albuquerque-based doctor Torre Near, MD. Dr. Near recently wrote a great opinion piece on health care that appeared in the Albuquerque Journal.
Tune in to the show and feel free to give us a call at 505-265-1550. It is sure to be an interesting discussion.

On Saturday’s episode, Jim and Paul discussed Diane Denish’s recent pronouncements on government transparency and whether her ties to the corruption of the Richardson Administration and silence regarding ongoing scandals detracts from her forward-looking stance on the issue. Then, Jim and Paul discuss plans for “high speed rail” being put forth by President Obama, Governor Richardson, and Sen. Udall and whether the plans make sense for New Mexico.
My apologies for not getting last week’s episode up more quickly, but the show from July 27 is now up as is the July 4 show.
