New World Notes - GMOs
This week on New World Notes: radio program #258, February 12, 2013, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst offers some reflections on the anti-GMO: local produce--now but a fond memory here in New England. Then he looks at GMOs--genetically-modified plants sold as food.
The show includes TV-news and press coverage on failed GMO labelling bills in California and Connecticut--and on guerilla labellers stalking Connecticut's supermarket aisles. Plus selections from Part 1 of Gary Null's video documentary, GMO: Ticking Time Bomb.
IMHO, some of GMO: Ticking Time Bomb (Part 1) is best viewed while wearing a tinfoil hat, though much of it seems very sound indeed. You'll find a link to the uncut video at New World Notes.
We'll have more on GMOs--including a new labelling bill in Connecticut--in March.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "very noses") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.
You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening.

Series overview: Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want--and what they're trying to make us settle for.
