MikeyPod 113 | Kurt Morrow from Koinonia Partners

Kurt was my roommate for most of my time at Koinonia. After our four month internship together he decided to become a full time member of the community while I moved on to New York. It thought it would be fun to get an update from him and also talk about the SOA vigil.

Issa/Jane Siberry’s music can be found at Sheeba Records.
Her MySpace is here.

MikeyPod 110 | George Tabb

Talking with punk rocker and activist George Tabb about the fatal illness he developed after the 9-11 attacks. Despite the fact that his illness resulted from his proximity to the World Trade Center during and after the attacks, he has been denied any financial help with his medical expenses. Visit his MySpace page to learn more about his situation, and to help him if you can.

The opening tune is Anthrax (Powerballad Version) by the great Kimya Dawson.
