Pat Buchanan, a political commentator and former presidential candidate, joins the show
On Monday, we have a special show lined up for you.

For the first half of the show Riz speaks to American politician and commentator Pat Buchanan.

Buchanan was a senior adviser to presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. He also ran for president in 1992, 1996 and 2000.

Buchanan has been outspoken on curbing immigration, nationalising the economy, and opposing multiculturalism.

And in the second half of the show Riz speaks to Green party presidential candidate and former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.

Her platform is far to the left of the mainstream parties, advocating "respect for each other and for the environment".

She opposes the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories, proposes changing the Department of State into the Department of Peace, and condemns America's militarised foreign policy. She is controversial for claiming that George Bush, the US president, was involved in 9/11.
