NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from NHK Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
     From JAPAN-  North Korea launched a ballistic missile from a submarine into the Sea of Japan in protest of US/South Korean military exercises. Japanese self-defense forces have begun training for new duties. The US branch of the anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd won a court settlement against Japanese whalers, but had to agree to not impede them- the ruling has no effect on Sea Shepherd groups in Australia and they say they will continue fighting whaling in the Antarctic Ocean. The Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, under severe criticism for having suspected drug dealers murdered, has threatened to withdraw from the UN.
       From GERMANYThe Philippine President leveled criticism at the UN for a failure to alleviate hunger and reduce terrorism. A German right-wing party has called on citizens to carry firearms, the Interior Minister called for a partial ban on Burkas and agreed that police should be able to read encrypted messages. Germany is considering reintroducing a military draft and approved a new civil defense plan including civilians stockpiling food and water. The leaders of France, Germany, and Italy held talks on the future of the EU in the wake of Brexit. The US military has started using attack helicopters in Libya to attack Islamic State targets.
     From CUBA- A Brazilian court cleared former President Lula de Silva from corruption charges connected to the oil company scandal. There is a major oil spill on the Pacific Ocean shore of Nicaragua that is spreading to the beaches of Honduras and Costa Rica. Mexican families are appealing for justice from a massacre of 42 civilians by police in Michoacan last year.
       From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the ongoing war in Syria. As time has gone on more and more countries enter the fighting. She quotes Patrick Cockburn and airs remarks Stephen O'Brian, the UN Undersecretary for Humanitarian Affairs, gave to the UN Security Council.

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)

"Users of cliches frequently have more sinister intentions beyond laziness and conventional thinking. Relabeling events often entails subtle changes of meaning. War produces many euphemisms, downplaying or giving verbal respectability to savagery and slaughter."
