I discovered Abby Martin through my former guest WIll Potter. He was a guest on her show “Breaking The Set” discussing his book, Green Is The New Red. I instantly took to Ms. Martin’s no bullshit point of view. Her show explores ideas and happenings that the mainstream press avoids. Thus, I became hooked on her show.
I found Abby on twitter, DM’d her and emailed Will to see if he could help out with getting her on my show. He did and she quickly responded.
Due to her busy schedule we went back and forth for a couple months until we finally locked down a time and we recorded the show. The result is what I think may be one of my better episodes. She’s funny, foul mouthed and with a great sense of humor.
We quickly dug in and started discussing LSD and art, drone attacks, fear mongering and the she even came up with a few solutions on how to solve the worlds problems.
This episode is how I like ‘em partly because I feel I made some sort of connection with Abby. It goes beyond just talking about issues and ideas and becomes friendly. There are several guests I have had that when it ends I feel like we became friends. I felt that way with Will Potter, Pete O’Neal and Dan Kovalik (to name a few.)
Ms. Martin’s show “Breaking The Set” is on the RT network. Some cable stations carry it but every episode is posted on youtube.
I particularly like Abby’s interviews. On the youtube page there is an interview section. She has some really great guests and some of interviews will change your opinion on the maters of the world.
