Ray McGovern on Independent Media & Understanding the Post 9/11 World

On April 29, 2013, I recorded a conversation with former CIA analyst and Presidential daily briefer Ray McGovern.  Ray held forth on some of the usual subjects, but with an added emphasis on the media.  Ray has said that in his 50 years of observing Washington, D.C., the biggest change he's witnessed is that we no longer have in any real sense a free media. On this show, Ray expands on that in the light of some of his recent interactions with university students, and talks about torture, detainess, and the conflict inherent in the CIA between intelligence analysis and operations directorates.

KC-based Inergy Fracking a Finger Lake & Remembering Bob Edgar

On the April 23, 2013 editon of Tell Somebody Homelessness Marathon director Jeremy Alderson joined Gas Free Seneca co-founders Yvonne Taylor and Joseph Campbell to talk about the havoc being wreaked in the Finger Lakes area by Inergy LP, the Kansas City-based company planning to use 'fracking' in the area and to store explosive gases in empty salt mine caverns near Seneca Lake. Alderson was arrested for chaining himself to an entrance gate to the storage facility.

While preparing this show on April 23, I learned that Common Cause  President & CEO Bob Edgar had died suddenly that morning.  Edgar had been a guest on the show in May and October, 2012, and this show includes a portion of his October interview.
