National radio commentator, writer, public speaker, co-editor of the monthly "Hightower Lowdown" and author of "Thieves In High Places: They've Stolen Our Country And It's Time to Take It Back," Jim Hightower has spent three decades battling the Powers That Be on behalf of the Powers That Ought To Be -- consumers, working families, environmentalists, small businesses, and just-plain-folks.

Customer Reviews

Great common sense commentary

I make it a point to listen to Jim Hightower every morning on my local NPR radio station. I find his commentaries offer a fresh perspective on the activities of our current administration, most of which are deplorable. Thank God for the humorous spin he puts on his commentary!

Funny and informative

Jim tells it like it is with Texas wit and drawl. A great podcast for the news stories that the "LAME-stream media" doesn't report on. Proves just because you are from Texas, doesn't mean you have to be some Republican tool. Jim is the BEST! I love this podcast.

A Texas original....

Jim Hightower is truly a Texas original and knows how to push a populist, progressive message. He sometimes gives the Democrats more slack than they deserve, but his critique of right-wing policies that hurt ordinary working Americans is spot on. Jim says he was inspired by his nominally conservative dad who used to say simply that "everybody does better when everybody does better", as opposed to orthodox "trickle down" economic views. Jim is able to speak to conservatives without speaking down to them, makes appeals to Americans that we can do better as a nation and as a people. Jim encourages listeners to get active and always provides tools in the form of websites and phone numbers at the end of each broadcast. He and the late Molly Ivins are the best contributions Texas has ever made to the national political discussion.
