NEW PODCAST!!!- feed://  (160kb Highest Quality)

     This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.
    From JAPAN- The Defense Ministry of Japan has disposed all of its stock of cluster munitions- the US, Russia and China have not ratified the treaty banning their use. More than 100 students in Taiwan have been indicted for their role in last year's Occupy protests. The Syrian government demands that US led ground troops not enter the country to fight the so-called Islamic State forces. The US still refuses to  give information to the Syrian government about US airstrikes in their country. The leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France have agreed to a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine beginning February 15th.
     From GERMANY- I thought it would be informative to hear German reporting of the build up to the agreement reached concerning the war in Ukraine- so we will hear stories aired from Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, in the order that they were broadcast. The anti-Islamic group Pegida continued smaller weekly protests in Germany, and a new group is demonstrating in Sweden. New Greek Prime Minister Tsipras won a confidence vote for his plan to cancel the bail-out program with international debtors.
     From CUBA-  Russian President Putin said he will never accept a unipolar world order. US President Obama submitted an expanded War Powers resolution to Congress, a 3 year military campaign with no geographic limitations. In Mexico, the families of the 43 disappeared students say they stand behind a recent revelations by Argentine experts, and reject the government's "official story." England has spent over 10 million Pounds keeping Julian Assange from being able to leave the Ecuadoran embassy.
     From RUSSIA-  Both the UK and the US have developed military departments working directly in social media and the press. Their tactic is called "reflexive control" involving spreading disinformation and creating predetermined reactions. And, in July 2013, the US government dropped anti-propaganda laws for domestic media.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -
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)
