Trevor Timm is executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, and a lawyer and activist fighting for free speech and government transparency. Timm is a prolific writer whose work has appeared in The Guardian, Salon, The Atlantic, Al Jazeera, Foreign Policy, Harvard Law and Policy Review, Politico, and PBS MediaShift. 

 

Freedom of the Press, and Freedom of Speech are in the First Amendment, and they're vital to the definition of the United States and what it stands for. So why aren't journalists who speak out for government transparency safe and comfortable inside our nation's borders? Trevor Timm fights for those rights with the Freedom of the Press Foundation. Whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning shouldn't be intimidated to speak the truth to U.S. citizens, and people who so much as visit Wikileaks shouldn't be tracked. Cenk Uygur talks about all this and more in this special interview with Trevor Timm in TYT's series on civil liberties and national security.

Stephen Cohen is a professor of Russian Studies and History at New York University, one of the nation's foremost experts on Russian-American relations and the author of nine books on Russian history, including his latest, "Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives: From Stalinism to the New Cold War." He's also a contributor to The Nation Magazine, and with his wife, The Nation editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel, recently traveled to Russia to personally interview American dissident Edward Snowden.

 

Cohen has been a vocal critic of US/NATO policy over the Ukraine crisis, as well as US media's depiction of Putin as the aggressor and Ukraine the victim. What is the true standing of Russia as an international power? Do you agree with Professor Cohen on the Russian-Ukranian conflict? and Russia's popular image? Is he indeed a "Putin apologist" as his critics have said? 

 

Cenk Uygur has a thorough interview and discussion on Russia with Stephen F. Cohen, Professor of Russian Studies at NYU.

Valerie Baber is a sex coach, former erotica model and actress, and was part of the infamous Emperor's Club as a companion, or as you might say, an escort. As she explains, her job was not what you might automatically think! Valerie has a very non-judgmental take on sexuality-- what formed it, and what experiences got her there? Why is there such a stigma and high price on sexuality?

Valerie talks about her fascinating life breaking away from her Bible-belt family, experiences with nude-dancing, and how she wound up at the infamous New York Emperor's Club. Was Eliot Spitzer "Reckless?" Who was paying $20,000 a night for sex? What did these men want?

Valerie Barber discusses all this and what's in her book, "Notorious VIP : Confessions of an Emperor's Club Companion," with Cenk Uygur in this eye-opening interview.

Our democracy is in danger. The influence of big money over our government grows steadily as the power of individual American citizens weakens every day. Due to historic Supreme Court decisions, giant contributions from wealthy individuals and corporations shapes who gets elected and what they do once in office. Big money increasingly dominates our economic, environmental, and social policies. It's time for Americans to take back their government.​

Joe Costello began his career in politics as a volunteer for Ted Kennedy's primary challenge to President Jimmy Carter in 1980. Since then, Costello worked for a series of candidates who sought to change the system, like Jerry Brown in 1992 and Howard Dean in 2004. He talks with Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks about his experiences and about how money became a corrupting influence on politics over the past 30 years, destroying Tip O'Neill's truism "all politics is local".

Guerilla street artist Robbie Conal is famous for his brand of political commentary through his posters depicting U.S. political figures in grotesque, unconventional ways. He and his "volunteer guerrilla postering army" can canvas his poster art over a city overnight. Conal's work has appeared in Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, as well as CBS's This Morning and Charlie Rose.

He is also an MFA graduate and an adjunct professor of painting and drawing at the University of Southern California's Roski School of Fine Arts.

What are Conal's views on art, graffiti and the power they have for real change? What is his favorite work and what was its wave of impact? Is there such a thing as organized anarchy, and how does Conal achieve it? What are his methods, how have they evolved, and how will they continue to evolve?

Cenk Uygur discusses all these topics with Robbie Conal in this in-depth interview.

The Culture High is a documentary that tears into the very fibre of modern day marijuana prohibition to reveal the truth behind the arguments and motives governing both those who support and those who oppose the existing pot laws. Culture High Director Brett Harvey and Producer Adam Scorgie talk to Cenk Uygur about the longstanding propaganda against marijuana and why technology has enabled people to tear those arguments against marijuana health and safety apart. How has the war on marijuana failed? The Culture High uses interviews with ex-police officers and DEA agents about how they're incentivized to go for possession arrests over all other crimes. How can people enact change in the way marijuana is distributed and penalized?

Cenk Uygur sits down with Peter Joseph, founder of the Zeitgeist movement and creator of Zeitgeist, The Movie. The Zeitgeist movement's goal is to create global sustainability by changing established social systems. Can people save the world by changing socially? Is the market economy responsible for corruption, and is it serving its original purpose? Does the market economy leave room for true freewill, and is it truly possible to shed ourselves of material goods? Is Wall Street and its influence creating a sickness among mankind?

Cenk Uygur talks to Peter Joseph in-depth about the Zeitgeist movement, answering questions including how it would work, if it could work, and why the current social structure needs it to work.

Cenk debates right wing self-described atheist (and Fox News and Sean Hannity favorite) S.E. Cupp (author of Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media's Attack on Christianity) who argues there is an anti-Christian liberal media bias. They also touch on the Tea Party protests. Critics have argued Cupp is a young Ann Coulter. Cupp was also grilled by Bill Maher on Real Time on HBO. She tried to say Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow were anti-religion.

Todd Stiefel is the found and president of Stiefel Free Thought Foundation, one of the leading atheist groups in the country.

He says he was born an atheist (as we all are) and grew up devoutly Catholic. Only later did he realize the practices and mantras he learned at religious camps were simillar to practices used in brainwashing. He says his group's goal is not to convert the religious over to atheism, but to prevent people from becoming fundamentalist.

According to Stiefel, atheists have an uphill battle in the quest for public acceptance, but it is doable. He says atheists need to gain respect from the religious and show that they have morality and also show how most religious people have more in common with atheists than they do with fundamentalists.

He says the model for the atheist movement should be the LGBT community - need to come out, organize, and get financial support. Stiefel says freethinking has to replace other things religions have to offer - social connection, charity, and more. Can that be achieved?

You may have seen the "Turn Out for What" music video with Lil' Jon- it's fun and lighthearted, but drives home the message to millenials that voting is an important way to support causes that matter to them. How can Rock the Vote combat apathy and other barriers preventing them from voting? What really stops young people from voting?

Professor Reza Aslan is the author of the New York Times #1 Bestseller "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth," and is a writer and scholar on religious studies.

Is there a media bias against Islam? Reza Aslan points to certain media pundits and hosts who call all religion bad, but Islam "the worst." Is it bigoted when pundits like Sam Harris call any non-extremist Muslims "not real" Muslims? Are some media commentators denouncing and defining Christian and Muslim extremism themselves fundamentalist bigots? Where is the balance between when interpreting holy text? What is the difference between atheism and neo-atheism? Is there such a thing as the one "truth?"

Reza Aslan sits down with The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur to discuss and debate the state of religious commentary in media, religious ignorance, the removal of religion from society and neo-atheism, what it really means to be religious, picking-and-choosing attitudes across the board, and much more on fundamental misunderstandings of religion.

Rosalind Wiseman is a teacher, author, and media spokesperson on bullying, ethical leadership, social media, and media literacy. She wrote "Queen Bees & Wannabes," a bestseller that later served as the basis for the hit movie "Mean Girls." Her most recent book is "Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World."

How can boys cope with major issues growing up such as self-identity, dealing with racism and homophobia, standing up for themselves and what principles matter to them, and as society puts it, "be a man?" What about issues such as bullying and hazing, as shown in an extreme sense with the Sayreville High School Football case that can actually be considered sexual assault? When is it right to fight and when is the right choice to "use your words?"

And how can caring parents help their boys without unintentionally hurting them in the long run?

Cenk Uygur talks in-depth with Rosalind Wiseman about raising boys in a way that helps them become well-adjusted, honorable men.

More on Rosalind: http://rosalindwiseman.com/

Her other books include:
- Queen Bee Moms & King Pin Dads: Dealing with the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make—or Break—Your Child's Future

Alan Cohn is a progressive Democratic candidate for Congress from Florida, working to fight corporate corruption and overtake a Tea Party incumbent backed with much more money. We checked in on him at the beginning of the campaign- can a progressive candidate topple a Tea Party candidate in Tampa? Can Alan Cohn use grassroots campaigning to beat someone writing regulations for the big banks, oil corporations, and the Koch brothers and is being funded by them? And how does the web key in to reaching voters with a message they connect to in a real way?

Reza Aslan is a religious scholar and the author of " Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth." He has become notorious after being the subject of an interview with Fox News' Lauren Green in what is now thought to be one of the worst, most biased interviews on television ever. Aslan tried, but was ultimately unable to talk about his book in depth. Now, he sits with Cenk Uygur and discusses "Zealot" and his historical and religious findings about Jesus Christ.

Guinea Worm is a parasitic infection spread through unclean drinking water. It causes intense debilitating pain (so much that it was nicknamed "the fiery serpent"), and was once extremely prevalent across Asia and Africa. The Carter Center has worked hard to fight against Guinea Worm, and now, it's on track to be the second disease to be eradicated after smallpox.

What does it take to eradicate a widespread disease? And why did former president Carter choose to focus on this one? Is there anything else he wishes he could have used his powers as the president on?

Bryan Burghart is a notable journalist and creator of Fatal Encounters (FatalEncounters.org), a searchable national database about people killed during interactions with law enforcement. He started curating the site after discovering that someone had been killed in a police altercation, but not being able to find any information on it later. Why wasn't there transparency? Why are there not any records being kept on these fatalities on an official level? And what has Brian learned during his fact-finding venture?

Max Blumenthal is the author of Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel; he speaks to Cenk Uygur about the situation in Gaza straight from Ramallah on the West Bank. He has been a vocal opponent of Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing militaristic leadership of Israel, the U.S. government's support of violent acts in the name of the state, as well as the treatment of people living on the Gaza Strip. 

Max argues that the status of people living on the Gaza Strip is worse than what black South Africans suffered during Apartheid, asks why the U.S. continues to push for assault on the Gaza Strip, and explains how he, as a Jewish man, mitigates his criticism of the state of Israel. Can Americans protest the violence and death through boycott?

Russell Brand (now on The Trews) is well known for his comedy and acting, but also his commentary and analysis of main stream media and the faults therein. Today, he talks to Cenk Uygur about the the unbelievable corporate bias in news, our modern political landscape, and how we can fix and cope with both cultures. How does Ferguson coverage show us how pundits like Bill O'Reilly and others have failed the American public? When did news conform to the status quo and maintaining the agenda of the powerful, rather than serving the public? How do those of us without billions of dollars at our disposal cope with the world as it is? And how does the role of celebrity ironically play into this?

Russell and Cenk have a frank discussion on these topics and the toxic relationships between politics, mainstream media, and power, and how money is the corrupting link between them all.

Read about Wolf-PAC for yourself HERE: http://www.wolf-pac.com/

Wolf-PAC's goal is singular- get the power and influence of money out of politics. All too often, donors to political campaigns are able to get our representatives to work to accomplish what they want-- but what about what the citizens want? How can everyday people fight corruption in our government? Wolf-PAC volunteers-- normal citizens-- have been able to successfully get resolutions to get conventions which help us push out the power of money out of our political system. Here in California, Wolf-PAC volunteers worked hard, and saw real success with CA AJR1. Now, leaders including California State Leader Alison Hartson, California Organizer Will Yate, and California Regional Coordinator Kathy Orlinsky join founder Cenk Uygur to discuss it all. Do you think we can pass a resolution? These people are working every day to do it!

Dr. Christopher Ryan is the writer of Sex at Dawn, a definitive book on human sexuality in the modern age, but also way back in our past. Is monogamy natural, or does promiscuity come easier to us? Where did our modern ways of sex, grouping, child-rearing, and social structuring come from, and how did ancient humans mitigate the same topics? How have penises and vaginas evolved over time? Christopher Ryan discusses our prehistoric sexual history and how we've evolved and changed into the modern era.

Christopher Ryan is also a regular contributor to Psychology Today and runs the podcast, Tangentially Speaking with Dr. Christopher Ryan. Before writing Sex at Dawn with his wife, Ryan travelled the world teaching English to prostitutes in Bangkok and self-defense (Kung Fu) to land-reform activists in Mexico.

Zephyr Teachout an Associate Professor of Law at Fordham University and she is also running an upstart campaign for the 2014 Democratic Party nomination for Governor of New York against incumbent governor Andrew Cuomo. Teachout wants to stop unchecked corporate power and donations. Teachout is famous for founding A New Way Forward- an organization built to break up the power of big banks, for being involved in Occupy Wall Street, and for being a major scholar of campaign-finance law.

She feels New York needs a true progressive governor, and that the Time Warner and Comcast merger needs to be stopped as it's not in the true interest of New Yorkers, nor do other corporate consolidation of powers help anyone except corporations themselves. But how can she hope to overcome Cuomo, who has much more funding power behind him and is actively trying to keep her off the ballots?

But on top of that, he's got a message-- porn is a sociopolitical statement. How is that? And how can negative feelings and stereotypes about sex be lifted? And is monogamy a lie-- both emotionally and biologically? How do men and women react differently to infidelity?

Max argues that the status of people living on the Gaza Strip is worse than what black South Africans suffered during Apartheid, asks why the U.S. continues to push for assault on the Gaza Strip, and explains how he, as a Jewish man, mitigates his criticism of the state of Israel. Can Americans protest the violence and death through boycott?

Larry King is nothing short of THE name in talk shows- he rose from hunble radio beginnings to the most preeminent interview and news shows in the world. But how did he get there? How did he transition from humble and scared radio host to CNN and OraTV's biggest host? Now that he's departed CNN, what can he say is his real political point of view? What happened in his infamous Jerry Seinfeld interview? What is the first question he would ask Osama bin Laden?

Larry King sits down with Cenk Uygur to discuss all this, plus the choices that shaped his career, which is still running strong.
