PPR May 31, 2013

In today’s show, Michael Nagler becomes Stephanie’s guest, instead of co-host, as their pre-planned guest had to postpone his interview at the last minute. No matter, Michael had something major on his mind–the power of nonviolence and the way the strategic question of raising the human image in conducting struggle against the untold narrative that makes violent systems possible. Show starts with discussion of nonviolence in the news.

Enjoy!

Mid-show song is by M.C. Yogi, I am that.
