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

This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From GERMANY- The mining disaster and subsequent rioting in Turkey is unfolding as I produce this show. Former Israeli Prime Minister Olmert has been sentenced to 6 years in jail on bribery charges. French president Hollande has plans for an African summit in Paris to address the schoolgirl kidnappings in Nigeria- there are claims the government knew the abduction would happen unless a trade for prisoners was made- this week they again refused the trade. South Sudan announced that scheduled elections will be postponed for two or three years. The International Criminal Court is reopening charges of war crimes against British troops in Iraq.
From RUSSIA- Amnesty International released a report on the normalization and acceptance of torture. An interview with Neil Durkin about the growing acceptance of torture.
From SPAIN- A report on the referenda votes for independence in two regions of eastern Ukraine. The Greek Supreme Court has approved the ultra-nationalist neo-nazi Golden Dawn party's bid in the European Parliamentary elections.
From CUBA- In Caracas, Venezuela subway workers marched against recent attacks, reportedly perpetrated by the right-wing opposition. The opposition in Venezuela suspended crisis negotiations with the government of President Maduro.
From JAPAN- China has taken steps to begin drilling for oil in an area of the South China Sea claimed by Vietnam- this has led to confrontations at sea and on mainland Vietnam. The government of Fukushima prefecture has protested a comic book series for depicting human health problems caused by radiation at the devastated nuclear power plants. The government is checking to see if areas near nuclear power plants have fresh and plentiful stocks of iodine tablets, to be distributed in the case of a nuclear accident.

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.
TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) 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)
