Amy Goodman on Independent Media, War and Elections

amygoodman1On Friday, just days after the election of Barack Obama as president of the United States, Amy Goodman was in Montreal, speaking about independent media, war and elections.

Before going onstage to address an audience of hundreds at McGill University, Goodman sat down with CKUT to discuss community radio, Obama, and the world today.

The full interview with Amy Goodman is HERE (runs 10m 13s).

Goodman is a best-selling author, an award-winning journalist and the executive producer and host of the daily news hour Democracy Now!

In her talk Friday night, she related narratives like the arrests of journalists, including herself, at the 2008 Republican National Convention. A compelling storyteller, she linked her experiences to an incisive account of America and the world.

It was all part of the international symposium of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC). For this event, programmers from around the globe converged on Montreal, marking AMARC’s 25th anniversary.

Goodman’s full talk is available here:

Part 1 (runs 57m 18s)

Part 2 (runs 22m 04s)
