MikeyPraise from a new PodFriend

This review of my show was posted at Podcast Pickle by Conrad, one of the creators of the hilariously bizarre video podcasts at Spainful Films

MikeyPod on the Bayou (Review Based on Episodes 38,39 & 41)

Thumbs Up: Despite apologies to the contrary the highly likeable host if this show has the confidence to make this professionally produced show flow with absolute fluidity. The content itself is political without being preachy and demonstrates how serious interviews can still be conversational. This should be listened to by other podcasters as an example of how to conduct great interviews.

Thumbs Down: I could be incorrect with this assumption but judging by the content on the feed the show only goes out when a new interview is carried out. Whilst this can be commended on the grounds of it doesn’t waste people’s time, I would suggest ensuring you work to maintain lines of communication with your listeners.

On a personal note. I rather wish this show was played to all teenagers in schools by law. Given a few years it would probably make the world a more pleasant and peaceful place.

MikeyPod 39 | Author and Activist Kathy Kelly (part 1 of 2)

Today’s show features the first half of an interview with Kathy Kelly, co- founder of Voices in the Wilderness, three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, and author of Other Lands Have Dreams: From Baghdad to Pekin Prison.

Ms Kelly spent time in a maximum security prison for planting corn on a nuclear missle silo, and for bringing medicine and toys to Iraq in open violation of the UN/US sanctions, she and other campaign members were notified of a proposed $163,000 penalty for the organization, threatened with 12 years in prison, and eventually fined $20,000, a sum which they’ve refused to pay.

Kathy mentioned the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee website as a resource for those of us who no longer wish to pay for this war.
