This week's show features stories from Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Sputnik Radio.
From CUBA- Cuba and the US signed an agreement to resume commercial flights for the first time in 50 years. Bolivia accused the US Embassy of subverting the referendum on the presidency. Then a Viewpoint on the US Secretary of Defense asking Congress to double the current military budget, presumably to fight Islamic terror but including a huge increase to counter Russian aggression.
From JAPAN- As the 5th anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster approaches, scientists are going to make another attempt to stop radioactive groundwater from entering into the Pacific Ocean. President Obama made a speech calling for an end to the military buildup in the South China Sea. The next day the US has moved 4 Stealth fighters to South Korea as a threat to North Korea.
From CHINA- The South Korean president said she intends to force regime change in the North. China opposes the deployment of a new US missile system in South Korea, and called for demilitarization of the South China Sea while placing new defensive missiles on a disputed island. Turkey denies Syrian claims about Turkish troops crossing the border. British officials have entered the final phase to have a referendum to change its relationship with the EU.
From GERMANY- German Chancellor Merkel says Britain will reach a deal to remain in the EU. The Turkish military has been attacking Kurdish and Syrian targets in Aleppo, and warned it will continue assaults on Kurds. The UN has been given permission to deliver food aid around Syria. Chancellor Merkel has defended her refugee policy. The Russian Prime Minister said tensions between Russia and the West have reached Cold War Levels.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Nick Srnicek, co-author of "Inventing The Future." They talk about how neo-liberalism has failed the working class and the ways that capitalism is holding back social evolution.

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)
