Programming Highlights

  • Phil and Ted's Sexy Boomer Show, Tuesday Nov. 29 at 1:00 pm, Special Guest Weird Al Yankovic

    Weird Al Yankovic has a huge, fanatical fan base for good reasons. He’s a 5-time Grammy winner and member of a rare group of musicians (U2, Michael Jackson, Madonna Kenny G,) with a top 40 hit for four decades running. Self-proclaimed “Weird Al obsessive” Lin Manuel Miranda credits Al as an inspiration for the hit musical “Hamilton.” It began when a door to door accordion salesman called on Al at the tender age of six. Al was unaffectionately nicknamed “Weird” in school, yet he embraced his weirdness and earned millions of fans. And did Al’s mom really serve him a bowl of sauerkraut every morning and watch him on the school playground through a pair of binoculars? Discover a fascinating side of Weird Al as we celebrate the release of his new sort-of biopic, “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.”

  • LA Theatre Works, Sunday 11/27/22 at 10:00 pm, "Thanksgiving Play" by Larissa FastHorse, starring Josh Stamberg

  • "A Forgotten Conflict": Sahrawi Activists Slam Moroccan Greenwashing Amid Western Sahara Occupation

    As climate Sahrawi activists in occupied Western Sahara accuse Morocco of greenwashing, the Spanish Film Academy, the Spanish equivalent to the Oscars, has just given its social justice award to the Western Sahara International Film Festival and its film school. We feature our interview at the U.N. climate summit with Mahfud Bechri, who explains how Morocco sells the natural resources and wealth of Western Sahara without the consent of the Sahrawi people as part of an effort to greenwash its military occupation of Western Sahara, and his larger campaign to demand companies end complicity with the occupation. The new social justice award from the Spanish Film Academy recognizes how Spanish support for the Moroccan occupation has led to “a complete media blockade” of the conflict, says María Carrión, executive director of FiSahara, the Western Sahara International Film Festival.

  • Will Missouri Stay Execution of Kevin Johnson, Case Tainted by Racism, or Let Daughter Witness Death?

    Pressure is growing for Missouri to stop the execution of Kevin Johnson set for Tuesday. At a hearing Monday before Missouri’s Supreme Court, a special prosecutor will request a stay in order to fully investigate how the case was tainted by racism. Meanwhile, Johnson’s 19-year-old daughter has been barred from witnessing his lethal injection because she is under 21. “We understand that the death penalty does not solve anything,” says Michelle Smith, co-director of Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, who says Johnson is being “punished more severely” because of his race. Lawmakers are also urging Missouri’s governor to grant Johnson clemency.
