Alternative Radio (www.alternativeradio.org) has a discount for their MP3 programs: normally $5 each, you can buy 20 for $50 (which equates to half price). Use the code 20for50 at checkout, and download some of the most forward-thinking talks you’ll ever hear, by some of the world’s most innovative and intelligent thinkers.
In particular, they have several separate talks by Vandana Shiva, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, and others. I made selections based on my interests and Michael’s, but there truly is something for everyone there.
In addition, Alternative Radio is not affiliated with NPR. It gets its funding solely from public support – through donations or the purchase of transcripts, CDs, tapes, books, and MP3s. So, unlike NPR (which is funded by companies such as Archer Daniels Midland and Monsanto), AR has no corporate interests influencing their programing. So please, buy some MP3s! Not only do you get excellent programing, but you also support a valuable resource.
Here’s what I’ve got (so if there are some you want to have a copy of, let me know and we’ll work something out):
