Why is Social Security under attack? What is the truth about who pays for it and who gets it, and how can we make sure it will be there for us when we need it? Kathie Piccagli of the Older Women's League answers these questions and more, as we approach the 75th birthday of this popular program.

For more information about saving social security and the 75th birthday party on Saturday, August 14th, call 415-215-7575 or visit Older Women's League.

Last week, for the first time in U.S. History, a federal judge struck down a ban on same-sex marriage. To hear comedian Wanda Sykes hilarious commentary on the subject go to "listen to the entire show" link below. Also included is a piece that we broadcast for the first time a year ago on gender roles in sports. It's from a speech by Dave Zirin at last year's Socialism Conference in San Francisco. Leading the segment is a song by singer/songwriter Meg Christian, Ode to a Gym Teacher (1974).

Listen to the entire show.
