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.

Glad to have Jim available “on demand”
We no longer listen to live news, as a mixed family with several children of color & immigrant grandparents. Thus, I am grateful for this podcast. Jim is an American treasure.
This is such a wonderful and refreshing podcast. It is straight forward, brief and presented in a humorous manner about the destruction of the Middle Class, the end of consumer protections, environmental protections, unions & labor protections. Hightower knows what he's talking about. It is fact based and clearly identifies the hypocracy of the GOP and the Trump Administration. If you work for a living, you need to tune in to Mr. Hightower.
clear and succinct
Been listening to Jim Hightower for a while
