This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, the Voice of Russia, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
From JAPAN- The former Prime Minister of Japan and the current leader of the opposition party are working together to eliminate nuclear power in the country. A cabinet member wants the government to bear part of the massive cost of cleaning up the Fukushima area, since they promoted the use of nuclear energy. Scientists say that most of the radioactive particles that fell on the forest still remain there. Honda is building a wind farm in Brazil where it will manufacture cars. Der Spiegel published a list of 80 US diplomatic missions around the world that the NSA uses for spying.
From RUSSIA- The NSA spying scandal has been growing and intensifying each day around the world. Here are excerpts from 3 stories aired on the Voice of Russia.
From SPAIN- As news of the NSA's extensive spying on Spanish citizens came to light, the government prosecutors launched an investigation into possible criminal charges. Ecuadoran President Correa is visiting Russian President Putin. Iran and the IAEA had very productive talks about settling disputes over nuclear power development. Brazil erupted in violent protests after the police killed of a 17 year old demonstrator.
From CUBA- Spanish students have taken to the streets to protest government cutbacks in education. At the UN Cuba rejected the US justifications for continuing its economic blockade against the island. In a controversial move, Israel freed the second of 4 batches of Palestinian prisoners.
From GERMANY- Germany sent intelligence investigators to Washington following US spying on the German people and Chancellor Merkel. In the UK the trial began for the news reporters who hacked into phone messages of celebrities and politicians. 3 Egyptian judges resigned while presiding over trials of Muslim Brotherhood members, while more Brotherhood leaders have been arrested. A German court is hearing a civil suit brought by relatives of Afghans killed by a NATO airstrike.

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)
