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

This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, the Voice of Russia, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- More than 215,000 people are still living away from their homes 2 1/2 years after the Fukushima disaster, and less than 2% of the replacement housing has been completed. This week saw yet another spike in radiation levels near Fukushima. Fishermen in NE Japan wanted South Korea to lift the ban on their marine products. Japanese have developed a new ocean thermal energy system that generates power undersea. Russia presented a plan for Syrian chemical weapons as an alternative to Obama's proposed bombing raids.
From RUSSIA- An interview with John Nichols of The Nation, about his article called "Nobody Wants This- Except for the Military Industrial Complex." Facebook, Yahoo, and Gmail have been aiding the NSA in capturing private information about US citizens, along with the global spy satellite service called Echelon.
From CUBA- Venezuelan President Maduro hosted a multinational series of events against fascism, in honor of the late Chilean President Salvador Allende. There were antiwar protests around the world following US President Obama's announced plans to unilaterally punish Syria, for the alleged use of chemical weapons, by bombing the region.
From SPAIN- Pope Francis has strongly opposed any military intervention in Syria, and publicly questioned whether the proposed US war was a trade war, aimed at profiting from selling weapons. Then a series of Spanish press reports on the situation with Syria. The Catalonian region of Spain is celebrating an annual holiday while making a 400 km human chain across the region, calling for a referendum to become an independent nation.

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)

"War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group know what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket."
-- Major General Smedley Butler USMC, 1933
