The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show
Host Joe Uris steers the ship solo thru 2 issues, one local and one international.
Locally, we're centered on Mike Erickson's [Wiki] 2004 "vacation" in Cuba, where he lost all of the receipts and other paperwork showing that his vacation was, in actuality, a humanitarian mission, carrying medical supplies to a Cuban clinic that doesn't seem to exist.
Internationally, of course, is our relationship with Russia, now that they've demonstrated their admiration for US Foreign Policy thru mimicry, by brutally invading another sovereign nation under the guise of "Liberation." Because they can.
Host Joe Uris leads a discusssion of environmental issues like water, air and energy with an emphasis on energy consumption in the U.S. and the world. Of course, politics and history eek their way into the show.
We do apologize, but due to technical difficulties recording the show, the last 10 minutes of the broadcast are missing from the webcast.
Hosts Abe Proctor and Joe Uris cover the entire political spectrum, with today's show centered around Racism in the 2008 Elections (and our culture in general), how off-shore drilling is more smokescreen than solution to our energy problems, and they introduce the concept of the "New Capitalism" for later discussion.
Host Abe Proctor asks the world "Why are you a republican?" as if there could be a valid answer. He gets lots of answers; YOU be the judge as to whether they're valid...

Host Andrew Geller sits in for Joe & Abe today with a discussion of the sneaky replacement of natural beets with genetically engineered Sugar Beets in our domestic sugar supply, right here in the Willamette Valley. Andrew brings in three experts to illuminate the shady goings-on.
First, in studio, we have Laurie Ann Bird from NW Rage, the NW Resistance Against Genetic Engineering.
We are later joined by Frank Morton from the Organic Seed Alliance.
Finally, we hear from Kevin Golden, a lawyer from the Center For Food Safety.
We'll learn how Monsanto has manipulated the system to replace over 95% of the existing "natural" sugar beets grown in Oregon with Round Up Ready Genetically Engineered Sugar Beets in a single year, 2008. We'll all be eating GE candy bars in short order...
