Our Way to Fight in British Columbia, podcasts now online

Leave a comment

Our Way to Fight, on the road in British Columbia, Canada: in four days, five events and four radio interviews in three cities.   Throughout the journey I met lively, responsive audiences; enjoyed stimulating encounters with new and seasoned activists from a range of solidarity and peace action groups; reveled in generous hospitality and gorgeous country.

Now posted online are audio podcasts of the four radio interviews (different hosts, different questions), and a video podcast of my talk at the University of Victoria.  Here are the links:

Red-eye Radio, with Manuel Shulte, Co-op Radio, Vancouver.  15 minutes. Podcast here.

Gorilla Radio, with Chris Cook, CFUV, Victoria.   20 minutes.   Podcast here.

Changes Radio, with Jamie Brennan, CHLY-FM, Nanaimo.  50 minutes.  Podcast here.  Click on the Nov 22, 2011 program.
