RadioNation with Laura Flanders: Saturday Robert Redford, James Longley, Patricia Foulkrod, Byron Hurt; Sunday: Elizabeth Holtzman, Joel Pomeroy . . .

Kat here. Dead to the world, but here. It seems like I blinked and lost a whole week. I bet a lot of you feel that way. It's a good kind of tired knowing that you're doing everything you can to get the message to your senators that Alito doesn't belong on the Supreme Court.

But it's been a week. And you know if I'm here, I'm either talking about music or Laura Flanders. It's Saturday, so guess which topic I'm here for?

RadioNation with Laura Flanders! She's still in Utah and this time Laura's live from Sundance. With the Sundance Kid himself, Robert Redford! That's right, Saturday's show will feature an exclusive interview with Robert Redford. Now for some of the younger members, this may not seem like a big deal; however, Redford doesn't do a large number of interviews. Growing up, I knew Redford wouldn't be sitting down with Johnny Carson each time he had a film due out. So Laura interviewing him is a very big deal. (The last time I remember seeing an interview with him, and I'm sure he's done one since, was when Gloria Steinem interviewed him on The Today Show. I believe that was in the early eighties.)

RadioNation with Laura Flanders
Live from Sundance!
This weekend Air America and
The Nation magazine go to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

On Saturday, we talk to founder Robert Redford about a quarter-century of nurturing independent film... festival Programming Director John Cooper about this year's films... Filmmakers Patricia Foulkrod and James Longley about their independent documentaries on Iraq, Byron Hurt on his film on machismo and hip hop culture, and more.
On Sunday, we'll hear from former Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman -- she was on Nixon's impeachment committee and believes W. deserves the same. The media roundtable features Joel Pomeroy, executive producer of "Crossing Arizona" and Freida Lee Mock, director and screenwriter of "Wrestling with Angels: Playwright Tony Kushner".

Tune in. And if you missed it, last weekend's live broadcast from Salt Lake City can be podcast from It's all on RadioNation with Laura Flanders this weekend on Air America Radio.

Former Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman is the author of "The Impeachment of George W. Bush" and, as someone who worked on the impeachment of Nixon, she knows a thing or two about the crimes of Bully Boys. Along with Redford and Holtzman, you'll hear about the latest in independent film. So make a point to listen to RadioNation with Laura Flanders either over the traditional airwaves, via XM satellite radio, podcasting or via the online stream.
