In Dec. ‘09, Khalil Bendib, co-host of KPFA’s Voices of the ME & No. Africa, interviewed Noam Chomsky on the Israel-Palestine conflict. He then invited him to an on-air debate with Ali Abunimah over their differences re the BDS movement & with Jeff Blankfort on the power the pro-Israel Lobby. When Chomsky declined to debate them, Bendib presented a virtual debate in which listeners hear Chomsky’s criticisms of the BDS movement and Abunimah’s response, then Chomsky’s position on the power of the Lobby and Blankfort’s critique of his position. The 1/6/10 program was recently rebroadcast.

Radio Curios brings you the second of a two part conversation with former Pentecostal pastor turned atheist, Jerry DeWitt. He's the author of the memoir “Hope After Faith: An Ex-Pastor’s Journey From Belief to Atheism.”
In this episode: (1) Commemoration of the life of pioneering Palestinian Gazan psychiatrist Eyad El-Sarraj; (2) The feverish pace of Israeli incursion: an extraordinary interview with Nancy Murray upon return from her 23rd journey to Palestine.
We get a frightening picture of what's going on right now in Palestine. The Israeli ideologues have been allowed to run free, with the all too obvious intent to capture every meaningful square inch of Palestine, "cleansing" the landscape by dispossessing native Palestinians. All this with major financial help from, and the abject approval of, the United States Government.
Nancy Murray is author of "Palestinians: Life Under
Occupation" (1991) and many related articles right up to the present. In 2001, she co-founded the Gaza Mental Health Foundation (www.gazamentalhealth.org) in Boston to raise funds for mental health work in the Gaza Strip.

Some words and music from bi-feminist indie icon Ani DiFranco: she talks with Rosie Wilby from Resonance FM’s “Out In South London” about how she got into the music biz and her early career — including gigs in London at age 19 that first billed her as "Arne" — why she remains fiercely independent, the challenges of touring, and the "cameo" by legendary singer/songwriter Pete Seeger on her latest (and 17th) studio album, "Which Side Are You On? (includes the title track and "Amendment”, and intro’d with a snippet from "In Or Out" from 1992’s "Imperfectly").
