Abby then speaks with former Minnesota governor, Jesse Ventura, about his new program on Ora TV called ‘Off the Grid’ and why he chose to leave the US for Mexico. Abby then calls out CNN’s coverage of the missing Malaysian airliner, given non-stop speculative attention to this story whilst ignoring other important news such as ongoing protests in Turkey, the Paralympics, and the DOJ’s decision to reduce drug sentencing penalties. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Ben McLeish of the Zeitgeist movement, discussing the 2014 world Zeitgeist Day, and what it would take to movie society toward a resource based economy.
