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".

(The echo goes away after about 20 seconds.)

Matt Stoller, former staff member for Representative Alan Grayson and writer for Naked Capitalism, talks to Cenk about the behind-the-scenes effort that was needed to include an Audit the Fed amendment in the 2009 financial reform bill, which Congress passed into law. This long interview provides well-informed insight into the operation of Congress, how legislation is made, and the political process in general.

Matt Stoller has been involved in progressive politics in a variety of roles. He writes for www.nakedcapitalism.com and is currently the political correspondent for the TV show BrandX with Russell Brand, which airs Thursday nights on FX.

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.
