  2. Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: Fran Lebowitz

    Fran Lebowitz's literary career had a somewhat inauspicious beginning — not long after being expelled from high school, she moved to New York, showed up barefoot at a publishing house to submit her poetry collection, and was incredulous when it was rejected. Her determination, fearlessness, and sharp wit were undeniable, however, and she soon became not only a successful author, but one of New York's most important social critics.

  3. Free City Radio: Interview - Reporting n US Military Drones

    From the FREE CITY RADIO site

    Military drone strikes operating under the military policy of the Obama administration is targeting people in Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen and Afghanistan, leading to hundreds, if not thousands, of deaths over past years.

    Listen to an interview with Cora Currier a journalist reporting on the U.S. military drone program. This interview speaks to the growing political debates around U.S. drone strikes and also to the lack of transparency around the generally classified drone program. Journalists in the U.S. and internationally working to follow, investigate and report on the drone strikes most often face official denials or silence in response to critical questions.

    The Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates that 407 to 926 civilians have been killed since 2004 in Pakistan, while the Pakistani government says the number is between 400 and 600. The United States says information on civilian deaths is "classified".

    By not acknowledging civilian deaths or releasing details of the strikes, the U.S. government makes it impossible for families of civilians killed by drones to receive compensation, according to Amnesty International.

  4. Cora Currier Interview on WORT 89.9

    FROM WORT 89.9 Website:

    "On Wednesday, November 28, our host Jan Miyasaki speaks with Cora Currier, an investigative reporter at ProPublica, about her latest piece: “Why the U.S. Won’t Allow a Dying Iranian Sociologist to Join His Family.” Iranian sociologist Dr. Rahmatollah Sedigh Sarvestani, who is suffering from terminal cancer, wishes to join his family in the U.S., but is unable to because his visa request was denied. The rejection was due to “activity relating to espionage or sabotage,” a claim to which the family is shocked. It was only in the 1970s that the doctor was involved in pro-Iranian demonstrations; since then, he has actually voiced his protest against the government. It is uncertain as to why Dr. Sarvestani’s visa has been denied at this point, since he has been allowed into the U.S. since the 1970s."
