Episode #849: This Most Recent Crisis
First Broadcast: 1/13/20
How did we get to the current state of affairs between the U.S. and Iran, whose latest conflict seemed to unfold within a handful of days, barely a week into 2020? Well, if you start with this timeline in 1953, and then shift to this timeline in 2018, and read the transcript of this batshit speech--which doesn't adequately capture all the weirdness of its delivery--then you might get to where we were when we recorded this episode a few days ago, breathing a sigh of relief that World War III still hasn't quite started yet. Is this just a hint of even more crises to come? Is this just Trump's attempt to distract from his inevitable impeachment trial? Will we still be talking about this a week from now? I'm not even sure what I'm talking about right now...
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
