He also hosts his own weekly Sirius XM show, Edge of Sports Radio. Named one of UTNE Reader’s “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Our World”, he will discuss the NFL’s commitment to being a force against Domestic Violence. His opening statement regarding Domestic Violence and Ray Rice, “let’s be clear: the NFL has about as much of a commitment to do something about violence against women as British Petroleum—or is it Beyond Petroleum—has to cleaning up the environment.”

“Gross Negligence”

The second guest, ANTONIA JUHASZ, an oil and energy expert and analyst, author of Black Tide: The Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill, talks about the recent decision byh Distrcit Court Judge, Carl Barbier. “GROSS NEGLIGENCE.”
