  • Like Democracy Now, this program looks at the news and issues of the day from a progressive perspective. The show is all about returning to a people centered democracy. It’s a 1-hour recap of Thom Hartmann’s best guests of the day.  

  • In physics a drift chamber is used to search for next to nothing; the chaotic, energetic, wisp known as the muon.  In this Drift Chamber, the listener is moved from the present to the past and into the future. Words and music are used to make connections and separations. Some voices speak in metaphor while others are literal. The Drift Chamber mixes music with the spoken word to tell a particular story. The music comes from all sources. The words come from writers, poets, artists, scientists, musicians, and just people who have stories that intrigued us.
