Observing the third anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and the Monday after peace rallies opposed to the war, on our 20 March 2006 show, we aired testimony by former UN weapons inspector Scot Ritter and unimbedded freelance writer Jeremy Scahill before the Bush War Crimes Commission (http://www.bushcommission.org). The commission has released preliminary findings: http://www.bushcommission.org/Findings/preliminaryfindings.pdf. Thanks to Not in Our Name for their help in letting us air the audio of the testimony. More audio is on the Bush Commission web site.

On our March 13, 2006 show, we did a live interview with Ben Morgan, the director of a new independent film, Quality of Life, about graffiti artists on the streets of San Francisco. The realistic dramatization of these budding artists' lives has won invites to festivals in Berlin and Seattle. We chat with Morgan about the politics of art and state repression with increasingly punitive law enforcement on "quality of life" issues. See film wesbite at: qualityoflife-themovie.com.
Thanks to the film's producer for letting us post the audio of the trailer from the show online. This film is currently showing across from UCI in a limited run. It may end this week unless viewers show up.

Thanks to Not in Our Name for letting us air the audio.
