As an advocate of free and open source software and a firm believer that softwares patents are stifling to innovation and represent an affront to freedom, I would very much like to suggest that the podcast of the Thom Hartmann show be provided in the patent free ogg vorbis format. (It would be too much to hope that ogg would replace mp3s, since many Windows users would have difficulty playing said format, but at least as an alternative.) It's something a number of public radio stations do, and I would love to see a progressive like Thom embrace a lesser known, but also important, area of progressivism and anti-corporatism. (And I know he's aware of the issue, since he's spoken of open source software and linux on the show before.)

We are only able to produce podcasts in a single format and regret we have no plans to change that at the present time.

On the subject of open source, this new website has been produced from open source Drupal modules.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
