Our guest for the July 10th show is Dr. Peggy Wireman, who will join us to continue our discussion on poverty.
This week we focus on macro issues: poverty as a system, the roles of both local communities and government, and the way that money can impact the poor.
Dr. Wireman, a resident of Madison WI, is the author of "Connecting The Dots: Government, Community, and Family." She has extensive experience working as a legislative aide in Congress and in the executive branch in both Democratic and Republican administrations. She has worked as a grassroots community organizer, as a Congressional Fellow, and provided policy analysis for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

THE MIDDLE GROUND Tuesdays at 8 pm ET —
Conservative author Michael Charney and I co-host a show called The Middle Ground on Tuesday nights at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT). Michael, who lives in New Hampshire and is active in the Republican party there, prepares most of the content, including lining up guests, while I do promotion and chime in during the broadcasts. Michael is best known for his Internet rivalry with extremist agitator Glenn Beck, and for his book about the experience Chasing Glenn Beck. His contribution to the Coffee Party conversation has been illuminating and reassuring for me and for many others. I’m proud to share the web-waves with him.
