Vancouver’s Redeye radio show provides listeners a progressive take on current events. The independent radio program, which has been on air for over 30 years, is broadcast live every Saturday morning on Vancouver Cooperative Radio, CFRO 102.7FM.
This week, Redeye features an interview with Ali Abunimah, adviser for the recently established Palestine Advisory Network, who offers insight about Mubarak’s resignation in Egypt, and the role of the Palestinian Authority in the changing political sphere.The interview is a part of Rabble’s podcast network and can be found here.
As well, two very different, but equally captivating segments in journalism analysis, were broadcast by CBC Radio One recently. The first is titled ‘Too Few Women in Publishing’, and shows a startling lack of bylines as well as a substantial female presence on staff in most major magazines. The second is an interview with Brian Deer, the investigative journalist who discovered the false claims behind the vaccine-autism link controversy.
Listen to both shows here.
