David Barsamian is the founder and director of the award-winning Alternative Radio, http://www.alternativeradio.org, based in Boulder, CO. For now more than 25 years, David has brought alternative perspectives from leading activists, academics and writers on current events, issues, history and more in this weekly radio program, each broadcast an antidote to the propaganda heard on the mainstream media.
The weekly program airs on public and community radio stations across the U.S., Canada, and Australia. In the Bay Area AR airs on KALW 91.7 FM, Mondays from 1-2PM. David has done a series of books with Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Tariq Ali, Arundhati Roy, Eqbal Ahmad and Edward Said. His latest book with Chomsky is How the World Works. In his spare time, David lectures all over the world and loves to read Urdu poetry and listen to Indian ragas. In late September he was deported from India, the World's Largest Democracy.
The event is free to students and open to the public. A small donation will be requested from the public to cover expenses but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Copies of How the World Works by Chomsky and Barsamian will be available for purchase.
