The Tuesday Edition

Just a few of the highlights from the latest show. For a more detailed rundown, click on "Read More" at the bottom of this entry. Or consult the box marked "Latest Audio" at the right-hand side of the webpage.

PART ONE

BC MARIJUANA. Blunt statement. Four of B.C.'s former Attorneys General have penned a letter calling for the provincial government to legalize marijuana.

LAWFUL ACCESS LAW. Even if it's warranted, it will be unwarranted. The federal government's proposed surveillance bill would give police access to your online activities, without a warrant.

PART TWO

APPLE PLAY. Open source. First he wrote a monologue about the working conditions in factories where Apple products are made -- and now Mike Daisey is offering the script for that monologue for free.

OBIT: PATRICIA STEPHENS DUE. Sitting down for her rights. We remember civil rights leader Patricia Stephens Due, who went to jail for daring to sit at a Woolworth's lunch counter in 1960.

PART THREE

SCRIPT: DOGS AGAINST ROMNEY. Barking up the Romney. Dogs gather at the Westminister Dog Show in New York City to protest Mitt Romney's treatment of his former roof-riding dog Seamus.

NEOPHILIA. If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you didn't clap, then you may want to listen to this interview about neophilia - or how novelty seeking is a more important part of happiness than we previously knew.
