What have we learned in 30+ years of a daily talk show called, Steel on Steel?  With an eye to the future, John does an extended boralogue reviewing all the rules we have established for interpreting what politicians say, include the Three Rules of a Bureaucracy, the Four Questions to ask when a politician says something, How to Detect the Single Standard under a Double Standard and others.

With the world in chaos and an uncertain path before us, it helps to talk to someone who has a vision for where we are heading.  On today's podcast, we talk with two of them.  First, author and online columnist James Kunstler (kunstler.com), is back with us.  He is joined by print journalist and award-winning radio producer Mark Sommer.  They offer their sometimes similar and other times distinctly different points of view about how to handle what's to come.

For today's round table discussion, both James and Mark look at alternative fuels, the future of the energy industry, and how politics affects our viewpoints.  Idealism versus reality is explored as both guests do what many in this country refuse to – talk with someone who doesn't agree with them in an effort to find common ground.
