This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
From JAPAN- The mayor of a city near the Fukushima nuclear disaster has declared the city a nuclear-free zone. With Fukushima approaching the fourth anniversary of the nuclear devastation, less than half of the money designated for reconstruction of the area has been spent. The government is beginning a long-term health study of 20,000 workers exposed to radiation in the days following the Fukushima disaster. The US Ambassador to South Korea was attacked by a knife-wielding assailant protesting the current US/South Korea military exercises. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov has strongly different opinions about the ceasefire in eastern Ukraine. Forbes magazine reported that there are now 1800 billionaires on the planet, signifying the growing gap between the rich and poor.
From CUBA- A large US agricultural delegation is having a 3 day meeting in Cuba to establish stronger business ties and end the US economic embargo. The Venezuelan government has given the US 2 weeks to cut the number of diplomats in the country from 100 to 17. The level of extreme poverty in Venezuela has dropped to a record low according to government figures. Syrian President Assad accused Turkish President Erdogan of supporting Takfiri ISIL militants, originally trained by the CIA.
From RUSSIA- A discussion with Stephen Schlesinger and Eric Draitser about Obama's proposed military authorization against so-called Islamic State. They describe the current US actions as regional destabilization rather than problem solving.
From GERMANY- Egyptian courts continue to imprison more Muslim Brotherhood leaders, while Turkey leads the world in imprisoned press reporters. UN peace envoys are trying to create a deal to freeze fighting in the city of Aleppo. Ukraine and Russia agreed on gas delivery for Kiev and the EU. Ukrainian President Poroshenko requested international peacekeepers in the east, while legislating a 50% increase in troop deployment. German Chancellor Merkel threatened further sanctions against Russia if the ceasefire fails in the east of Ukraine. Russian President Putin pledged to find the killers of opposition politician Boris Nemtsov.

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)

"The world we want to transform has already been worked on by history and is largely hollow. We must nevertheless be inventive enough to change it and build a new world. Take care and do not forget ideas are also weapons."
