This is That Fresh Radio Piece, inviting you to check out this week's broadcast, Monday May 4th as always at 6-8pm.

This week, we'll play an interview we conducted of Gar Alperovitz, political economist, historian and professor here at UMD.

We discuss his book America Beyond Capitalism: Reclaiming our Wealth, Liberty, and Democracy. Alperovitz discusses many serious issues facing the American economy and society. He also presents alternatives to the ownership structures and inequalities of U.S. capitalism, such as worker-owned companies, cooperatives, mutual funds, and economic development corporations; a strategy towards lessening the inequality gap, empowering people on a local level and deepening democracy in their lives.

During the second hour, we present a few examples of local communities addressing global warming, from Alaska to Guatemala to Colombia.

All that plus some fresh vibes, headlines, and much more. So tune in-we've only got a few more shows left this semester. It's been a good three years doing TFRP, but it wouldn't be anything without your feedback, critiques and engagement.
