TYT Interviews

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.

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?

Cenk Uygur talks to Peabody Award-Winning Investigative Journalist Alan Cohn about his campaign for Congress and why issues like minimum wage, immigration, and economic reform truly matter.

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?

Cenk Uygur speaks to former President Jimmy Carter to find out in the first part of this special interview.

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? And what hurdles did he face in the fight for information? Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) discusses it all with journalist Brian Burghart. 

Brian Burghart has been editor of the Reno News & Review since 2002 and teaches Beginning Reporting at the Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. He is also a dual-master’s student and journalism instructor at the University of Nevada, Reno.

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?
