Studio B Presents:
Exclusive Medea Benjamin Interview, July 31, 2012
Medea Benjamin -- radical activist, feminist, cofounder of Code Pink and Global Exchange, and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, was in town at the end of August to talk about her new book, "Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control." She had a chance to stop by Studio B at Radio Phoenix where she was interviewed by Victor Aronow. The discussion ranged from her awakening to activism, through mom and kids in an activist family, to President Obama and her hopes for the future. More on Medea Benjamin and Code Pink HERE.
Radio Phoenix is becoming a favorite spot for US State Department tours by progressive journalists from around the world. After the visit by the South African delegation a few months ago, we thought that our straight talk about media, money, and monopoly would have made the State Department think twice before sending us more journalists. But on July 2, four progressive journalists from Morocco spent two hours at the studio learning about the realities of American radio, then tried out Mexican food and tequila with Board members.
