A reminder that tonight at 7pm ET (4pm PT) is our weekly Callin show, Lever Live, where David Sirota is joined by special guests to take questions from the audience LIVE on air.

Lever Live is publicly available for anyone to listen to and participate in. Just click this link to find tonight’s show on Callin.

During the first part of tonight’s episode, Sirota will discuss the Senate’s bipartisan gun safety bill, asking callers a simple question: Should everyone cheer the initiative, or should it be seen as a do-nothing ruse?

In the second part of the episode, Sirota will be joined by Kate Aronoff to discuss her recent “Left Wondering” column for The Lever about ethical consumption under capitalism. We’ll take your questions about consumer decisions, and explore some quandaries like:

  • Can you eat meat and also be a climate activist?
  • What’s the most sustainable way to travel?
  • Is the “carbon footprint” metric actually helpful? Or is it just the fossil fuel industry foisting responsibility onto individuals?

Join us to find out the answers to these questions — and to ask your own.
