Esther Kaplin, Lisa Jervis, Christine Cegelis and more on RadioNation With Laura Flanders this weekend

Kat here. Maria's entry got caught in one of those publishing loops that lasts an hour and Ruth was working very hard on her entry and revising it until moments ago. Which means Saturday's RadioNation with Laura Flanders is about to start (the news break you've missed if you were waiting for the announcement and you probably missed nothing by missing the news break).

C.I. noted an e-mail Friday:

And all of you can listen to RadioNation with Laura Flanders this weekend. Broadcast each Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 to 10:00pm EST on the Air America Radio Network, and available for listening online, RadioNation also produces a one-hour version, which is provided free to noncommercial community and college stations.
This weekend's shows feature Chicago congressional candidate Christine Cegelis talking about what her narrow loss to Tammy Duckworth in the Democratic primary there means for growing progressive grassroots party activists, Nation contributor Esther Kaplan and Bitch magazine's Lisa Jervis dissecting the media outlets that wage the Right's war on women, Nation writer David Moberg discussing GM's historic buyouts, Grist magazine's Kathryn Schultz detailing the link between poverty and pollution, and playwright Peter Morris on Guardians', a new play on politics, morality and Abu Ghraib. All that and more, on RadioNation w/ Laura Flanders this weekend.

Esther Kaplin, Lisa Jervis and Christine Cegelis are the guests I'm most interested in hearing from although all sound interesting. (I know Jervis' writing and Kaplin is a fascinating writer as well.)

Oh, C.I. passed on that Katrina vanden Heuvel will be a guest on ABC's This Week tomorrow for anyone who can stomach the Sunday Chat & Chews. No offense to vanden Heuvel but I avoid them. If you don't, check out This Week.
