Comments

Compelling radio!

Always feel more/better informed after listening to "A Deeper Look", but today's show provided insightful coverage on parallel government structures - Canadian & American - with a clear disregard for political prisoners.

Gitmo and de-regulation of human rights - same old story, same old consequence to humanity.

Thanks Linda!
