Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another 10 episodes, but with impeachment cancellation is possible at any moment. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.

Sea Change Radio: The Ramez Naam Plan For De-Carbonization, Pt. 1 (re-broadcast), Segment 1

3 weeks 1 day ago
Whether or not we use the name Green New Deal to describe a set of aggressive long-term policies that will help humanity in the fight against climate change, most rational people agree that the status quo is completely unacceptable. The potential of a Green New Deal is that it could pave the way for some great minds to devise concrete proposals for reducing greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak with one of those great minds, Ramez Naam, a futurist and technologist who’s crafted his own sort of Green New Deal. We delve into the nuts and bolts of Naam’s proposal and the problems it’s trying to solve, as he makes the case for why we may actually see bipartisan support for such a proposal.

TUC Radio: Michael Parenti: Theocracy VS. Democracy - ARCHIVE, Segment 2

3 weeks 1 day ago
Michael Parenti says that democracy can't survive under religious rule – whatever that religion may be. Parenti's warning in this archival recording is as timely and urgently expressed as it was when this speech was first given on April 12, 1987, during the second term of the Reagan administration. This talk is also very funny. Parenti explains how God may be considered as a "founding father" and why Woody Allen calls him an underachiever. It is easy to extend this timeless analysis to the present circumstances. With roots in a working class Italian district of New York City and a Ph.D. in political science from Yale Michael Parenti has become an internationally known writer and lecturer. He is the author of twenty-three books.

Back in the USSR: Thomas Sankara: The Upright Man, Segment 1

3 weeks 2 days ago
Tonight's show shall focus on a true hero that I wish far more people knew about. If he was still with us today, he would have turned 69 on December 21st. As you’ll see, Thomas Sankara’s example as a revolutionary who fought against colonialism, imperialism, capitalism and racism remains absolutely relevant today, and contains lessons for us all as to what liberation means and what is necessary to achieve it in a world that remains dominated by an exploitative and unjust system that keeps billions of people under its boot heel.

Taylor Report: Chemical weapons story springs leaks, Canadian media bury the story., Segment 1

3 weeks 2 days ago
Phil asks Yves Engler, author of the article "Media ignores explosive revelations about chemical weapons in Syria," why the mainstream media in Canada has completely ignored the collapsing official narrative that the Syrian government was responsible for an alleged chemical incident at Douma, Syria, April 7 2018. Phil notes that Justin Trudeau at first called for an investigation to assign blame for the incident. Chrystia Freeland, however, immediately pinned the blame on Syria and Trudeau soon followed suit. Over 100 cruise missiles were launched at Syria on April 14, 2018 before any investigation took place. Engler explains that the Canadian government has recently contributed monetarily to the OPCW, just as it gives voluntary contributions to the OAS and the UN Human Rights Council. These organizations are corrupted by these sizeable donations. Tareq Haddad resigned from Newsweek because it refused to cover the whistleblower revelations from the OPCW over its questionable report on Douma. Engler notes that in journalism school, students are taught to seek the truth. In practice, however, Canadian journalists of foreign affairs very quickly learn to parrot the media releases of Global Affairs Canada. Engler also reveals that the Canadian government funds Halal Systems, an early warning system designed to protect the US Coalition's proxy warriors in Syria from air attack, such as in Idlib. Vanessa Beely, he says, shows the White Helmets are the main operators of Halal Systems.
