June 18, 2016: Dayen on the Continuing Foreclosure Crisis; What About the Muslim Left?

This week, we have two really good, in-depth discussions of very different topics. 


First up, we speak with journalist David Dayen about his new book, Chain of Title:  How Three Ordinary Americans Uncovered Wall Street's Great Foreclosure Fraud. Dayen tells the story of three victims of the foreclosure crisis who took the unusual step of actually reading their mortgage documents and ended up helping expose what may well be the biggest consumer fraud in history. 


Then we'll be joined by Ali Gharib, contributor to The Nation and Politics and Reality Radio's senior Middle East correspondent. Ali recently co-moderated a forum on the Islamic left for Democracy: a Journal of Ideas, and we discuss the fact that while a larger share of American Muslims identify as liberal than the population overall, Islam is always represented by its hard-right faction in the media.
