Episode #395 Jesse Van Tol (@jessevantol) from ncrc.org joins Citizen Radio to talk about the planned Capital One-ING merger that would make Capital One the fifth largest banks in America. Talk about too big to fail, especially given Capital One's shady past. TODAY is the last day of comment about the merger, so contact the Fed at ncrc.org and state your opposition. Also, the Occupy movements have helped spotlight Americans' disappearing rights to express themselves and assemble. 

CR apologizes in advance for The Avengers trailer bit.

Special guest: The Moth and Drunk Christina.
