NEW PODCAST!!!- feed://http://www.outfarpress.com/podcast.xml (128kb Highest Quality)

This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, the Voice of Russia, Spanish National Radio, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
From JAPAN- It has been revealed that the NSA has been bugging the UN headquarters in New York as well as 80 embassies around the world. Japan has officially raised the level of radioactive severity to 3, weeks after admitting large leaks are reaching the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese government has allocated public funds to attempt to slow down the latest radioactive leaks.
From CUBA- British PM Cameron has attempted to bring a halt to revelations about spying activities with the US. A new Snowden leak says that the NSA has paid millions of dollars to Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook to collect user data. Snowden is accusing the British government of leaking top secret information in a bid to discredit his own disclosures. The Palestinian Authority has cancelled a round of peace talks after a confrontation in a refugee camp in the occupied West Bank left 3 Palestinians dead, one of them a UN employee who was walking to work.
From RUSSIA- Current popular polls show that the British people are opposed to military intervention in Syria. An interview with a director of the polling agency YouGov, and with demonstrators in front of 10 Downing Street.
From SPAIN- Britain and the US have sent warships to the Mediterranean Sea- here are comments from Iran, Israel, and Syrian neighbor Lebanon. After a week of demonstrations and strikes in Colombia, President Santos has agreed to negotiate with the protesting farmers.
From GERMANY- The British government wants to open the countryside to fracking, as is happening in the US. But the protests there have continued and grown stronger.

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://radio.mediageek.net

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
NEW TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < http://www.kzyx.org >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)

"The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western world. No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity - much less dissent."
