My On-Air Conversation with Former Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich

This is an updated version of an earlier post. I've now recorded the conversation with Robert Reich and thought you might like to know what you'll hear when it airs this Sunday.

I rarely promote my NPR-San Francisco radio program (KALW-FM, 91.7 FM,) Work with Marty Nemko, but this coming Sunday's program is special.

I was honored that former U.S. Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich agreed to return for a second long-form conversation. I have now recorded that.

First, I asked about key moments and decisions in Reich's life. It turned out to be an exchange in which we each told tales, some funny, all instructive.

Most of the conversation was about whether it's wise for the government to additionally redistribute income, raise the minimum wage, and about the Obama Administration's increased use of Disparate Impact to abet minority employment. I tried to adhere to the journalistic standard--polite skeptic--but failed regarding Disparate Impact, on which Reich and I had a spirited exchange.

After the conversation, I offered post-mortem musings.

The program airs this Sunday, April 27, 2014 from 11 AM to noon on KALW 91.7 FM (NPR-San Francisco. Outside the Bay Area, it can be heard then on
and it will be permanently archived there as well as  available for free download in  iTunes and on the National Public Radio website.
