A loosely organized collection of interesting stuff.

The show includes a Press Review of oddball stories you may have missed--National Lobster Day, the US claims to have "conquered" Jupiter, and more. DAVID ROVICS sings about a huge London riot the US press chose to ignore. Then NOAM CHOMSKY explains some of the ways the US's ruling elite keeps "the 99%" powerless, obedient, and economically insecure. Plus remarks, here and there, by KD.

( Chomsky's recent publications include a film and book, Requiem for the American Dream (2017).

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "inflexible deadlines") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
National Lobster Day is September 25, 2017.
