On the program, we talk energy – natural gas drilling on the Marcellus Shale, mountains being blown off in W. Virginia for their coal – how these destructive activities are conducted over and against the wishes of communities and what some communities are now doing about it. We also talk with Brad Read, president of Envision Spokane, about the state of politics locally and nationally.
If you’re in the Spokane listening area, you can listen to Democracy Matters every Wednesday at 12:30pm Eastern/9:30am Pacific, or Thursday at 10am Eastern/7am Pacific, at 89.9FM, best heard at 92.3FM. Or you can listen online at KYRS, Spokane’s Thin Air Community Radio.
You can also listen anytime by podcasting the show.
We are also pleased to announce the syndication of the show on Public Reality Radio, WPRR, 1680 AM and 95.3 FM in Grand Rapids. The show airs at 6am Eastern every Tuesday morning.
Each week on Democracy Matters we bring you stories from the frontlines as communities bring rights-based organizing to their communities – asserting their local self-governing authority to make the critical decisions that affect their lives and their community.
If you are interested in having Democracy Matters broadcast on your local community radio station, give them a call and let them know.
