Just discovered the show…
Thanks to the Washington Post podcast recommendation. I was an avid viewer of the Al-Jazeera newscast in the US until was dropped. Love the non-objective coverage of world events.

9.13 podcast
excellent show. great discussion/new info. from guests and keeping it real by not forgetting all the torturing done by the gw bush admin and then how obama didn’t prosecute nor investigate. obama turned out to be such a huge disappointment. we thought with him we were voting for an individual that believed in human justice/rights but the fact was he believed in keeping corporate america happy instead of doing the right thing. blahh
