David Barsamian, founder and director of the award-winning Alternative Radio program, just returned from a trip to India and Nepal, took some time to talk to Tell Somebody about his trip. He tells of running into eminent Indian environmental activist Vandana Shiva at a protest on an overpass in India, of his return to Nepal for the first time in decades, and shares his observations on subjects ranging from PBS' Charlie Rose to some rather vacuous comments from a couple of members of the Kansas City Missouri city council that he heard on Tell Somebody.
The bulk of the show is David Barsamian on fire, in a good way, but first a snip of audio from the same-day Public Citizen press conference on the hyper-activist Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United v FEC case and the non-sequitor dismissal of critics of the proposed new Kansas City nuclear WMD plant boondoggle by KCMO councilman John Sharp and councilwoman Kathy Jolly.
