Abby then talks about the amount of money squandered by the US government in bailing out corporations, propping up foreign militaries and maintaining its 900 bases worldwide, while retorting at the idea of helping distressed local economies in the US. Abby then talks to BTS Producer, Manuel Rapalo, about the vast reach of the surveillance state from accessing network grids, to the how every device is capable of being hacked and used as a surveillance tool. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with actor and director, and co-host of 'Buzzsaw' Sean Stone, about the clash of civilizations, misconceptions about Islam and Iran, and the role Hollywood and the corporate media play in perpetuating Islamophobia.
