TYT Interviews

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.
