NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Sputnik Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, NHK World Radio Japan, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From SPAIN- Certainly the primary story on international media was the Paris attacks. We will start with a description of the events and the recognition that rather than refugees, the attackers were EU citizens. A few days before the attacks Patrick Cockburn, a journalist who reports from Syria, published an analysis "Too Weak, Too Strong." It is about the power rivalries in Syria, both domestic and foreign.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi points out that the atrocities in Paris were not the worst terror acts in France since WW2, as the media keeps restating.
From GERMANY- In light of the Paris attacks, Poland will not accept relocated refugees. Just before the attacks the US military announced that the had done a targeted drone assassination of Jihadi John, and then Abu Nabil, Islamic State leaders. Boko Haram continues to perpetrate massacres in Nigeria. Worldwide, October set new high temperature records. Russian investigators say they have proof that a bomb caused a passenger jet to crash over the Sinai peninsula, killing 224 people.
From JAPAN- The Islamic State released a photo of a bomb it says caused the Russian passenger jet to crash. International computer hackers calling themselves "Anonymous" vows cyber-attacks against Islamic State. In Okinawa a thousand people sat in protesting the building of a new US military base on reclaimed coastline. Obama warned China to cease reclaiming land in disputed areas of the South China Sea.
From CUBA- A Viewpoint on the public release of the text of the Trans Pacific Partnership. It is massive, written in legalese, primarily by corporate lawyers. One aspect of the TPP is the ability of corporations to sue governments if laws interfere with their profits.

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)

"Terrorism doesn't just blow up buildings: it blasts every other issue off the political map. The specter of terrorism- real and exaggerated- has become a shield of impunity, protecting governments around the world from scrutiny for their human rights abuses."
--Naomi Klein
