Nathan Fuller of the Bradley Manning Support Network on Manning's testimony at Fort Meade, his psychiatrist's attempts to better Manning's detainment conditions, and the next steps in the pre-trial phase. Also, audio from NYU's panel discussion on free speech and whistleblowers, and John spoke at a Jeremy Hammond rally.
The Sanctuaries are a band from New York City who formed in 2010. Merging the jangly guitars of both the 60s and 90s via classic Rickenbacker style, the quartet pumps out memorable, upbeat pop songs. Currently hard at work on the followup to their full length debut, they're keeping fans happy with an EP that includes remixes of their earlier work, as well as a unique series of "cooking with mom" music videos. Keeping things on topic, the band played some of those tunes and sat down with Maia to talk nicknames, moms, and NJ basements.
Hurricane Sandy has devastated the Northeast, leaving millions without power, and New York City without subway service for the next several days at least. Molly is stuck in Manhattan, so today is another best-of show. We replay our interview with Greg Palast on his new book Billionaires and Ballot Bandits, and my interview of NYU's Sarah Knuckey on a drone report she co-authored.
We talk to the photographer behind PopSpotsNYC, a site that celebrates of pop album cover photos taken in NYC.

Pussy Riot lawyers discussing their case - we have audio of their talk at NYU, and a new report on drones details the horror and anguish they cause.
Influenced by groups like The Misfits, The Jesus Lizard and Rage Against the Machine, New York-based Big Ups play riotous, earth-shattering punk rock. The four-piece — made up of NYU students Brendan Finn (drums), Joe Galarraga (vocals), Carlos Salguero (bass), and Amar Lal (guitar) — are a bottomless pit of energy and angst, and their songs quickly erupt into loud, ferocious scream fests.
