Today on Radioactivity we are joined  by comedic musician Roy Zimmerman, who sings guitar-based folk songs poking fun at the political topics like Same-Sex Marriage, creationism, guns, and Marijuana (with some jabs at Republicans and Liberals peppered in). He has released 12 albums of satirical music, both as a solo musician and as a former member of comedy group The Foreman. He will be playing tonight at 6 at the Unitarian Universalist church in Lakeland.

Then we talk with Dan Lazare, who has authored numerous books on political theory including the  The Frozen Republic. In light of the recent terror attacks in Paris, he wrote a piece for consortium news on who is responsible for the rise of ISIS and where do these extremist groups get funding.
