In 1950, an animated turtle named Bert taught American children to "duck and cover" in case of atomic attack. Comic yet terrifying, Bert's lessons reflected an abiding national concern with civil defense that reached back to the Minutemen, spread nationwide during World War II, and rose and fell with the tensions of the Cold War.
2011, in the Aftermath of 9/11, is America still taking Bert’s advice and “Ducking and Covering?” Are our politicians trading on a cottage industry at the victim’s expense? Is America suffering from a mass case of PTSD? Has America become a nation of wimps? Did bin Laden win?
On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, The Halli and MoJoe Show will take an honest look at the nation and where it stands ten years after one of America's darkest days. Joining us will be Liz Goutvenier-Reyer whose life was decimated by the events of that fateful day. Also Alix Michel, with a different story to tell.. and many others.
