An original radio theatre show each week, with most sounds culled from the previous week, about a fictional, theatrical presidency. 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 15 episodes, but there are threats of cancellation. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact email@example.com.

Bristol Broadband Co-operative: How long until Grenfell Tower justice? Corporate manslaughter laws inadequate. Joe Delaney, Segment 1
Sonic Café with John Lennon music from his 1974 Walls and Bridges album, so hey glad you stopped by, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 159. This time the Sonic Café gets you back on the right path. Listen for stand-up comedy from Shayne Smith in a little story Shayne calls Scared Straight at Summer Camp. Along with that we’ve pulled together an eclectic music mix covering 26 years. Listen for The Moody Blues, Pucho, Steve Hackett with beautiful vocals from Randy Crawford, plus Tony Levin, Better Than Ezra and of course many more. Then later the Sonic Café presents another classic movie moment from 1987’s Full Metal Jacket… if this clip doesn’t scare you straight nothing else will. Then listen for another commercial parody as the Sonic Café welcomes Lombank to the program. Lombank, the American bank that truly more or less cares about you. All that and probably some other stuff too. So get prepared to be Scared Straight this time from that little café on the coast that brings a weekly dose of creative, eclectic radio that’s fun. We’re the Sonic Café.

Professor Rashid Khalidi speaks in Vienna on the current USA/Trump behavior regarding Israel's outrageous antics, including its takeover of all of Jerusalem, and the glaring flaws dooming the so-called peace process. Khalidi is a US-Palestinian historian of the Middle East, the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University and director of the Middle East institute which is based there. In collaboration with the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, the Bruno Kreisky Forum for International Dialogue invited him to speak on the current political line of the USA regarding the issue of Jerusalem. Before this, we read a piece by Professor Ilan Pappé, writing about the Israeli defense ministry's efforts to remove damning documents from Israeli archives. Such documents have enabled Palestinian scholars to reveal an accurate picture of Israel's ethnic cleansing program.

For years, climate denialists put forth the narrative that it would cripple the US economy to sign on to international climate agreements like the Kyoto Protocol. They said that other major carbon emitting countries like India and China needed to be on board in order for the US to join. It's clear now, however, that this narrative was always just a smokescreen. The Trump Administration is pulling the US out of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, which notably does include India and China, and is an historic accord representing more than 87% of global greenhouse gas emitters. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak with Helen Mountford the Vice President for Climate and Economics at the World Resource Institute. She breaks down what the US withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement means. We look at when this withdrawal would actually go into effect, examine some Trumpian lies about the Agreement itself, and discuss the impact it will have on the US and the planet moving forward.
