The Glorious Return!

The majority of this week’s show is a 2002 lecture by novelist and activist Arundhati Roy. It’s an excellent speech about war, power, imperialism, globalization, history, grassroots resistance, and hope. Please give it a listen.

Also features music by Sonic Youth, 65daysofstatic, Against Me, a Radiohead/De La Soul mashup, Devotchka, and more.

This also marks a probably transition for the format of the show. I currently find myself in Info Absorb Mode, constantly reading, listening to interviews, watching video lectures, and trying to mentally synthesize it all at a rapid rate. This is one of the reasons I haven’t been writing or recording much; I’m all about input, not output. So I think that one way I can remain an information sponge and continue to produce useful material for y’all would be to do interviews myself. Find a smart guest, pick their brain about an issue and/or the activist work they do, and upload it for shared listening. So the show might be more about other people’s thoughts than my own for a while. Which is a good thing; sometimes even I get tired of hearing about what I think.

And there will be music, of course. I think I’m too obsessive to give that up.

Thanks for the patience and support, y’all.

  1. If only my company firewall would let me listen, radiohead mashup sounds great.

  2. Jake, you might wish to post this somewhere on your site to accomodate those who also have the problem of listening to your show through corporate firewalls:

    First, I recommend that you use the free version of RealPlayer that is downloadable from the WMUH site here:

    Real Networks continually upgrades their player, and the newer versions are big files that take a lot of memory and include (among other things) ad-displaying software which can interrupt your connection as the ads compete with the stream for your limited bandwidth. The version Real Networks provided to WMUH is stripped-down and therefore more efficient. Download it here:

    Then, once you have the stripped-down version of RealPlayer installed, you will want to configure it to use hypertext mark-up language (HTML) as the listening format by following these steps:

    Open Real Player

    On the top menu, choose “Tools”

    Select the last choice “Preferences”

    Click on the plus (+) sign next to the word “Connections” under the Category list in the left-side navigation of the Preferences window

    When the plus sign turns to a minus, there are 3 choices under “Connections”. Choose “Network Transports”

    Check the box on the right side labeled “Manually configure connections settings”

    Click the tab for RTSP Settings…

    Check the box “Attempt to use HTTP for all content.” If any other boxes are checked, un-check them. Click OK

    Click the tab for PNA Settings… If any other boxes are checked, un-check them. Click OK.

    You will be returned to the network transport window. Click OK

    Now, from the File menu at the top of RealPlayer, select Open

    Paste the following address into the “Open” window:

    Click OK

    You should now be able to listen to Jake’s show
