LISTen: An Program -- Episode #254

This week we focus on a very particular part of the potential fall-out of the currently brewing fiscal emergency for the federal government in the United States. The Library of Congress contingency advisory for a government shut down announces shuttering of their websites and Cyrus Farivar at Ars Technica reports that they're not the only agency planning to go dark online. The President's Weekly Address and the Republican Response are both replayed to help provide context as to the struggle leading up to the possible lapse in federal spending authority on October 1st at midnight.
