Like most of Bill Moyers' podcasts, this one is a must-listen:
Exposé on the Journal: Mr. Heath Goes to Washington: "Bill Moyers Journal and the PBS series Exposé: America's Investigative Reports offer a hard and fresh look at how earmarks really work. Watch a preview. The broadcast profiles Seattle Times reporters on the trail of how members of Congress have awarded federal dollars for questionable purposes to companies in local Congressional districts-often to companies whose executives, employees or PACs have made campaign contributions to the legislators. Also on the program, Sarah Chayes, author and former journalist who has been helping rebuild Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban regime, with a look at the front lines of America's war there."
