Bobby speaks, on location, from Columbus Circle, at the base of the statue of Cristoforo Colombo (which is apparently the literal epicenter of New York City) with Nicole Raymondi, creator of Quotiful, an iPhone app, which integrates meme-making and social media, and provides an outstanding user experience. What’s your favorite quote? Does it motivate you? Does it excite you? Is it tattooed on your rib cage or printed on a tee shirt? Perhaps, if you found the perfect picture to express it, you could create a meme for it. And if you did, you would most certainly use Quotiful to do so.Related Website
Bobby speaks, on location, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with Joseph Campo, executive producer at Grassroots Films (“The Human Experience”, 2008) and the director of the St. Francis House, a halfway home for troubled young men in search of a new start in life. The two discuss a range of topics, from drug addiction to documentary filmmaking to what it means to be American-Italian and Catholic and, of course, human.Related Websites
What might it mean for Americans to have access to films and footage of the violent, physical crackdown of the Occupy Wall Street Protestors at Zuccotti Park that infamous morning on November 15, 2011? http://nyti.ms/15xJY4q
I am talking about visuals that never should have been available, as the police forbid the media to be present at this “cleanup.” I am talking about the jackbooted thugs passing themselves off as New York City’s finest, of course, and their violent crackdown that day.
What might it mean to Americans to see and hear a 92-year-old Grandmother tell us about how important “these young people” in the Occupy Movement are to elderly Americans?
What might it mean for Americans to hear from a retired Police Captain who chose to wear his uniform and stand in support of the Occupiers – bringing about his arrest by his brothers in blue? Or a marine veteran as he re-thinks “Semper Fi?”
They speak with intelligence and passion, through their personal, emotional stories about critical issues of our time including vast income inequality, jobs, debt, affordable health care and education, war, the environment and gun safety. Economist Jeffrey Sachs connects the dots and offer solutions for a fairer and more sustainable future.
Spend a few minutes with us in this interview with filmmaker Michael Perlman about the making of this film, its reception within the activist community, and then we’ll let you know how important YOU are to getting out these stories about a “Yes-You-Must-See-This Documentary” – The 99%: Occupy Everywhere. (http://bit.ly/1einIQM).
What better contribution to remembering and honoring the Occupy Wall Street movement on its second birthday. Long live Occupy! Long live this documentary.

FB: LUNCH and JUDY SHOW
On this episode, I podcast with stand-up comedian Calise Hawkins from a stoop just down the block from West 4th Street in Greenwich Village, which is (for all you non-New Yorkers) basically the epicenter of stand-up comedy in New York City. Calise had recently been featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and was in the process of working on a new set for another show at which point I was finally able to pin her down and make her speak with me. It took some finessing, shadowing her for most of the night and observing how she performed the same set in front of three totally different crowds and learning how each crowd’s overall personality is completely different. For instance, the first room was a medium size room and there was a whole table full of drunken girls in the midst of a bachelorette party, the second was a tiny room with hardly anybody there (perhaps six people total, three couples) and the room felt stale and uninviting, but then the third room had a considerably large crowd. After all this, she had some time to kill before her next set, so she agreed to yap with me for a bit about stand-up comedy, how she got into it, what a person should do if they were interested in getting into, her life, her six year old daughter, writing, random drunkards pissing on street corners with micro-dicks, etc.Related Website http://www.calisehawkins.com
We’ve got another stellar show for you 15 Minutes of Fact listeners – a show that would have been inconceivable earlier in the Occupy Wall Street days.
Could you have imagined a self-described “Conservative Republican” looking to find supporters at Occupy? Someone slightly to the right of Genghis Khan? On the other hand, could you have imagined Occupy’s Alternative Banking Group showing up with hand-painted signs to celebrate this person’s birthday – on the very same steps of the bank which is an admitted money launderer for drug dealers and terrorists?
You won’t have to imagine it – in this 15MOF interview you will hear it directly from Everett Stern.
What further captured peoples’ interest was the way in which he celebrated his recent birthday: held on the steps of his former employer, HSBC bank, and surrounded by protest-sign-carrying Occupiers. This OWS working group was not only pleased to support Everett that they even sent out a press release to ensure that the media would be on hand. And, they were – even The American Banker. Why this unusual BFF relationship?
For starters, Occupy’s Alternative Banking has not been a great fan of HSBC. Early on they had discovered the money laundering and protested it vehemently. But, until Everett Stern, not one HSBC employee was encouraged to step forward to corroborate how truly bad – and ongoing – this scheme was.
Secondly, Alt.Banking is producing its first-ever publication, “Occupy Finance,” which will be distributed free on Occupy’s Birthday on September 17. Everett will return Occupy’s friendship by aggressively promoting it as well as appearing at their press conference at 3:00 p.m. that day in Zuccotti Park. “OccupyFinance” – Major Book 2 B Released in Zuccotti Park on #OWS Birthday. (You Can Help.)
Once you hear this interview through, I rather suspect that you just might want to put politics aside and follow his adventures. Will they end well, or sadly? If he doesn’t find additional supporters in the Activist community, it will likely be the latter. Let’s not let HSBC win on default.

In what is becoming almost a Series needing to be called, “I can’t believe we are still discussing this,” we are brought back to a storyline that just won’t go away – the narrative of the Homeowner as Victim and Banks as the Villain.
Few of these stories end up happy. Today’s 15 Minutes of Fact interview features a man who successfully reversed the roles with the banks. They became the Victim, and he is – in their eyes – the Villain. If he is a Villain, we need more such bad folk like him.
They shouldn’t have picked on California resident Martin Walden, a former US Army 1st Lieutenant, platoon leader with VietNam experience, a Revenue Agent with the IRS, and currently a major FB page manager for Mortgage Resistance of America, Student Loan Resistance Movement, and Big Pharma Resistance.
Like many people mesmerized by the false prosperity snares engineered by the banks, he got into hot water and has found himself to be foreclosed on. Again, and again, and again. How he has successfully stayed in this home for the past five years and fought off the bank may provide some hope for those of you who are still early-on in such circumstances.
For those of you who wish to know more about Martin and his work, you can reach him via email and on his Facebook Mortgage Resistance Page or on his Facebook Student Loan Resistance page.
