This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.
From GERMANY- Two updates on the refugee crisis- Over the weekend EU and leaders from Balkan states agreed to create reception and housing centers in the south of Europe. Then on Wednesday Austria announced it will erect border barriers while thousands more refugees attempt entry daily. The US Defense Secretary Carter says the US will step up airstrikes and consider ground troops in Syria. Iran will attend international talks on the Syrian conflict for the first time.
From JAPAN- In Okinawa work began on the new US military base despite protests by the Governor and citizens. Japan's Maritime Self-Defense Force is conducting military drills with the US Navy in the South China Sea. The US and Indonesia agreed to build up maritime and military cooperation.
From CHINA- We will start with several reports on the US warship patrolling in what China considers territorial waters. China is sending relief teams to areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan rocked by an earthquake. Several stories about the Chinese President's visit to the UK. China is developing working relationships with Denmark, the Netherlands, and other members of the EU. The Chinese UN representative called on the US to end its economic blockade of Cuba just before the vote on a resolution passed unanimously except by the US and Israel.
From CUBA- More on the UN resolution to end the US economic blockade of Cuba. Guatemalans elected a new president who says he will try to end corruption. A US Federal Court rejected an ACLU lawsuit against NSA spying on private citizens. Several reports on the worsening violence in Palestine and Israel, including Israel being censured by Amnesty International for using intentional lethal force without justification.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviews Lord Morris, Tony Blair's former Attorney General, about Blair's appearance on CNN last week. Blair discussed the lead up to and justification for the Iraq war.

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)
