Twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Ted Rall is a political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist and war correspondent, whose work has appeared in hundreds of publications from The New York Times, Washington Post, Village Voice, to Mad Magazine.  Among his many books are REVENGE OF THE LATCH KEY KIDS,  Gas War: The Truth Behind the American Occupation of Afghanistan
    ▪    Silk Road to Ruin: Is Central Asia the New Middle East?     ▪ and    The Book of Obama: How We Went From Hope and Change to the Age of Revolt,   which was the focus of our interview with him in June, 2012. 
    ▪    His latest book, which was the original focus of our interview, is SNOWDEN, published by Seven Stories Press. 
    ▪    But in between, Ted was fired by the LA TIMES for a blogpost he wrote in May of 2015, about how he was treated by the LAPD in 2001, when he says he was mistreated during a stop over alleged jaywalking, so we begin the interview discussing that.

Carol Strickman is a staff attorney at Legal Services for Prisoners With Children in San Francisco, and an attorney of record in the Pelican Bay federal class action lawsuit, which just ended in a Landmark Agreement Ending Indeterminate Long-Term Solitary Confinement in California.
At Legal Services for Prisoners With Children, Carol developed relationships with prisoners in solitary confinement, helped organize the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity coalition, and provided support for prisoners on hunger strike in 2011.  The legal challenge to solitary confinement, Ashker v. Governor, developed from the hunger strikes. Her contributions to the suit included working with the mental health and international law experts, working with plaintiffs to answer interrogatories, prepare for depositions and mental health examinations, communicating with class members, and being a liaison with community supporters.  At LSPC, she also engages in legislative advocacy, drafts legal manuals, and trains lawyers, service providers, interns, family members and prisoners about legal issues facing incarcerated parents. Previously, she was a solo practitioner representing indigent prisoners in their criminal appeals. 
She is an active member of the Bay Area Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.
