Against the Grain (radio program)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Against the Grain is a syndicated Pacifica Radio program of radical ideas and action. The show originates out of the studios of KPFA-FM, the flagship station in the Pacifica Radio Network. Against the Grain focuses on in-depth analysis and commentary by political commentators on political, economic, social and cultural topics, such as environmental issues, political economics, the global justice movement, philosophical and cultural ideas, and race and gender relations.


Against the Grain was founded in March 2003 at KPFA-FM in the San Francisco Bay Area by radio journalists C.S. Soong and Sasha Lilley. The ongoing program was born from a four-part radio series co-hosted and co-produced by Soong and Lilley, entitled Free Radicals, which aimed to challenge conventional wisdom on the Left. C.S. Soong is the program's regular host and producer and Eddie Yuen, co-editor of "Confronting Capitalism: Dispatches from a Global Movement," is currently the show's associate producer. Lilley and AK Press founder Ramsey Kanaan are the program's alternate hosts.
