4 a.m.: Nothing Is Real Radio Hour: Capitalism Rebroadcast from Aug. 31, 2013. Sam Sebren, producer/creator of the NIRRH, recently asked a question to 36 people in NY's rural, Greene and Columbia counties: "Do you think capitalism is working? Why or why not? Or, if you would like to decline to answer, please state why." The anonymous assortment of friends, acquaintances, and strangers on the street were recorded on the spot, with no clue ahead as to what they were about to be asked. Workers, small business owners, retired people, and others of all ages from across the political, ethnic, and economic spectrum gave their spontaneous reply. None of their answers were edited (except in 2 cases to remove identifying info for anonymity and in one instance by request). All answers are heard here in the order they were recorded. There is no post-recording arrangement or grouping of viewpoints. Hear for yourself from a variety of everyday people - is there any consensus? As a line from the Gang of Four song, "Capital (It Fails Us Now)" says, "one day old and I'm living on credit." Few of us are economists, yet we are all born into a turbulent economic system we are expected to navigate as if it is completely natural. Through this random survey, Sebren attempts to find out how deeply "capitalism" is, or is not, on our minds. We will also hear about the Yes Men's prank on the Chamber of Commerce and some insights on daily consumer culture from comedian Tom Simmons, plus music from Pink Floyd and Suicide.

6 p.m.: Free Speech Radio News: Just Harvest Special Labor Day edition. "On Capitol Hill, elected officials have long supported big agricultural and industrial-scale farming that requires massive inputs of chemicals and fossil fuels. But can this system continue to feed the population of a warming planet? Just a few miles up the road from where lawmakers set far-reaching policy, some DC residents are organizing to create something different. FSRN’s Alice Ollstein takes us to a farm called Three Part Harmony, where we explore what urban, organic agriculture could do both for a community and the environment they live in, and how US policy could better support it. This documentary was produced by Alice Ollstein and edited by Shannon Young. Our technical producer at KPFA is Jeannine Etter. The original music in this documentary was performed by Owen Grooms, a young farmer in North Carolina."
