"Inside the Issues” is a three hour, call-in, talk radio program that airs live nationally on Saturday's from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM ET on XM Satellite Radio Channel 169 and is rebroadcast on XM Channel 169 in its entirety on Sunday's from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET. 

Subject matter experts from various fields of economics, politics, political science, history, social activism, journalism, and other areas of national and international interest join Wilmer in the studio or call-in to the program each week. Experts such as Professor Charles Ogletree, Dr. Hanan Ashwari, Professor Roger Wilkins, Cindy Sheehan, Congressman John Conyers (D-Michigan), Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) authors Gore Vidal, James Bamford, activist Randall Robinson, Ms. Phyllis Bennis, Scott Ritter,  Dr. Kaukab Siddique, former CIA Analyst's Ray McGovern and Michael Scheuer, investigative journalist Greg Palast and political consultant Donna Brazile join the show on a regular basis.

A serious void exists in the public discourse relating to the issues that directly and/or disproportionately impact the African-American community.   Issues such as the prison industrial complex, racial profiling environmental racism, domestic policy and American foreign policy are not being sufficiently discussed in mainstream media.  Also, the  perspective that is grounded in the history of the African American community and tradition of African American scholarship is not sufficiently articulated as it relates to more general issues such as school vouchers, health care, crime policy, and economic globalization.   "Inside the Issues with Wilmer Leon” is one effort to discuss these and many other issues in as non-biased and academically accurate perspective as possible.

What separates Wilmer and "Inside the Issues" from other talk radio hosts and programs is the level of analysis that is provided each week by Dr. Leon and his guests. 

 "Inside the Issues with Wilmer Leon" is rhetoric free issue driven radio!
