Palestine Today – Radio Show

Palestine Today is my weekly radio show with co-host Kathleen Wells. It’s broadcast live on local KCAA Radio in California, USA and online.

Every Saturday we look at the latest news from Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem, talk to Palestinians, take calls from listeners and discuss geopolitical issues affecting Israel’s occupation of Palestine.

Listen online on Saturdays at 11am California time (?).
