Stand Up! with Pete Dominick

Stand Up is a full length show similar to what we did on SIRIUSXM. We will talk about issues that matter to you, your health, the health of your family, community, country and planet. And we will laugh while we do it. I plan to try up load at least 3 shows a week. Mon, Weds and Friday and then move as fast as I can to be daily.

Today's shows is awesome. Thanks to subscriber and friend Dan McDonald for the recommendation of Dr Craig Spencer. He treated and contracted Ebola in west Africa in 2014 and has treated Covid 19 patients in NYC at Columbia Medical. He now has 2 tours of duty as I call them. Dr. Spencer MD MPH is the Director of Global Health in Emergency Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. Here is the video AJ+ made to partner with his narrative about treating Covid 19 patients. Follow Dr Craig Spencer on Twitter @Craig_A_Spencer My Conversation with Craig starts at 11:07
My 2nd guest is what I call an "Anti Poverty Hero." She is an expert in Poverty, disability, Social Security, criminal justice and re-entry policy. We talked about the Clean Slate Initiative. Rebecca Vallas is a senior fellow at American Progress, where she has spent the past five years helping to build and lead CAP’s Poverty to Prosperity Program in a range of roles including as the program’s managing director and vice president—and along the way, helping to launch the organization’s criminal justice reform and disability justice work. She is also the host of the Off Kilter podcast Follow Rebecca on Twitter @RebeccaVallas
My Conversation with Rebecca begins at 53:27
Finally I asked Professor Eric Segall to join me LIVE on twitter yesterday evening to talk about the latest decision from the Supreme Court which announced its ruling Tuesday "that states must allow religious schools to participate in programs that provide scholarships to students attending private schools, a decision that opened the door to more public funding of religious education."
