First guest is Lauren Lyster of Hot Stock Minute & Yahoo Finance.
Second guest is Gregory Wilpert; who is a German-American sociologist (Ph.D. Brandeis University) and currently work as Director of the website of Telesur English, a pan-American television channel that was founded by President Chavez of Venezuela in 2005. The English website just launched on July 24 of this year. Telesur English has its headquarters in Quito, Ecuador, where I am now based. Previously to this job I worked as a freelance writer in New York City and taught political science as an adjunct professor at Brooklyn College's Graduate Center for Worker Education. In 2003 I founded (with others) the website www.venezuelanalysis.com, a site that provides regular news and analysis on Venezuelan society and politics. My most recent book is Changing Venezuela by Taking Power: The Policies of the Chavez Government (Verso Books, 2007).
