This is great information, I especially liked to hear Sage's stories about people he has known in Nepal and their experiences. It put a human face on the war over there.

I read in the times this morning a story about how these "vigilante" groups were rising out of the villages to go after maoists, but it sounded like the government was giving them incentives to do so. Anybody know what the real story is on that?

Where's the link? Is my computer screwing up? I don't see a link to a radio interview here, just to the website, which has lots and lots of info but no easily findable interview with a Bostonian.

The audio should start playing as soon as you open this page. Are you sure you have the sound turned on on your computer?
