This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- Eastern Ukraine separatists took over a major train station, and government forces withdrew. The government called on the UN to send peacekeepers to the region which the separatists criticized as violating the ceasefire. The Japanese government is still uncertain as to what to do with the increasing radioactive waste from Fukushima. Canadian authorities have confirmed a new case of mad cow disease. The Palestinian Authority is seeking international help to resume peace talks with Israel. Egypt dropped bombs on insurgents in Libya in retaliation for a video showing Egyptians being beheaded- Libya and Egypt want the UN to lift the arms embargo against Libya. Turkey will allow sites for the US to train ground troops for an invasion into Syria- the US will also train troops in Saudi Arabia.
From CUBA- F16 jets from the United Arab Emirate have blown up oil refineries controlled by ISIL troops. Venezuelan President Maduro released new information on this month's foiled coup against his government, and asked President Obama to stop his officials from meddling in Venezuelan affairs. A woman activist in the search for the 43 disappeared students in Mexico was shot to death in front of her children.
From GERMANY- Greeks across the country rallied against austerity measures while the EU urged an extension of the bailout under current terms. The EU central bank approved a 2 week extension of emergency funding for Greek banks. There were more arrests in Denmark in connection with shootings at a cafe and synagogue- there was a large memorial rally held in Copenhagen. The French government used special powers to pass an economic reform bill, leading many to expect a no-confidence debate in Parliament. Russian President Putin was in Hungary dealing gas supplies and the construction of two nuclear power plants. A quarter of a million Argentinians held a silent march for the state prosecutor found dead hours before he was due to testify against the President. The US announced it is prepared to sell armed drones on the global market.
From RUSSIA- An interview with a former US intelligence official, Mark Fellen, about interrogation techniques and the unreliability of torture. He describes misguided policies at Guantanamo Bay that served as major recruiting assets for terrorist groups.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at

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 < >

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)
