NARN, the Joe The Plumber edition -- with live video & chat!

The Northern Alliance Radio Network will be on the air today, with our six-hour-long broadcast schedule starting at 11 am CT. The first two hours features Power Line’s John Hinderaker and Chad and Brian from Fraters Libertas. Mitch and I hit the airwaves for the second shift from 1-3 pm CT, and King Banaian and Michael Broadkorb have The Final Word from 3-5. If you’re in the Twin Cities, you can hear us on AM 1280 The Patriot, or on the station’s Internet stream if you’re outside of the broadcast area.

Today, Mitch and I will undoubtedly spend plenty of time on the debate, but mostly we’ll talk about the phenomenon of Joe the Plumber. We’d love to talk to other plumbers, too. Own your own business? Talk to us! We’ll also talk about the media reaction to Joe, and wonder where all of these Lois Lanes have been while Barack Obama’s background went unreported.

Be sure to call 651-289-4488 to join the conversation! We’ll broadcast live video and streaming audio of the show:

Plus, be sure to join a live Ustream chat during the show. Be sure to register at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions. (And if the log-in prompt doesn’t come up in the chat box below, use this link instead.)
