Democracy Now!
Monday-Friday, 9 p.m.

Democracy Now! is a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez.

Democracy Now!’s War and Peace Report provides audiences with access to people and perspectives rarely heard in the U.S. corporate-sponsored media, including independent and international journalists, ordinary people from around the world who are directly affected by U.S. foreign policy, grassroots leaders and peace activists, artists, academics and independent analysts. In addition, Democracy Now! hosts real debates–debates between people who substantially disagree, such as between the White House or the Pentagon spokespeople on the one hand, and grassroots activists on the other.

For true democracy to work, people need easy access to independent, diverse sources of news and information.

radio_curious_logoAttorney Barry Vogel is host and producer of Radio Curious. He says his desire to create mental images from radio voices comes from his childhood memories of awakening in a warm bed on wintry Saturday mornings, listening to “Let’s Pretend.” The end of those all-too-short weekends was heralded each Sunday evening by the booming voice of Walter Winchell greeting “Mr. and Mrs. America” with the news of the week, as the wafting aroma of family dinner yielded yet another invisible wonder in the kitchen. Fifteen years later, his first regular radio programs were broadcast in Peru, where Vogel served as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Radio Curious first aired on Mendocino County Public Broadcasting in 1991 and has since aired on many public radio stations in North America and other continents.
