Witness Against Torture on KDVS 90.3 FM in Davis, California 

As some of you are aware, I also co-host a public affairs program on KDVS 90.3 FM in Davis, California. On Friday, I had the opportunity to speak with Jackie Allen, a participant in the Witness Against Torture march and fast at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. We attempted to include Anna Brown, another participant and political science professor at St. Peter's College in Jersey City, New Jersey, but, regrettably, we could not keep her on the line.

If you are interested in Allen's blunt spoken assessment of our policy of torture, you can download an MP3 file of the interview, until this Friday, 12/23, at 5pm. It starts at about 30-35 minutes into the program. For additional information about her experiences and insights, as well as those of others, visit the Witness Against Torture website. The interview follows an equally enlightening conversation with Tom Barry of the International Relations Center about the movement towards increasingly restrictive immigration measures.

Finally, for voyeurs, this is your chance to hear what I sound like on the radio. It's all part of the American Leftist multimedia octopus, where an internet blog, alternative radio and digital art is being synthesized into a new media conglomorate. Comcast and ClearChannel beware!
