Krist Novoselic is famous for for music-- he cofounded and played bass for the now-legendary band, Nirvana with his friend Kurt Cobain, and has also played with the Foo Fighters. But he's also been extremely active as a political activist and reformer. Since 2008 he has been board chair of the electoral reform organization FairVote and he is the creator of JAMPAC (Joint Artists and Musicians Political Action Committee).

What was it like growing up partly in Croatia (Yugoslavia at the time) and moving back to Aberdeen? And what was it like absorbing the music that helped him create music with Cobain and Nirvana? What was it like when Nevermind exploded and became a cultural phenomenon?

Novoselic talks about his huge musical career, why electoral reform and fair tallying and representation are so incredibly necessary, and much more on music and politics with The Young Turks host, Cenk Uygur.

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.
