SPEAK UP, SPEAK OUT! RADIO's 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Speak Up! Speak Out! Radio is celebrating 10 years of local, progressive radio with a special hour-long live program in March. The show emerged from a People for a Peaceable Planet meeting and went on air in March of 2006, with a two-part series celebrating Women in Skagit, in honor of International Women’s Day. There have been 10 years of insightful interviews on issues that matter ever since, often national and international in scope, but from a local perspective.
Since its beginning, the SUSO Radio collective has covered topics on human rights, the environment, food and farming, peace, education, and current cultural and political affairs, interviewing people who are passionate about their work in the world. The 10th Anniversary Show features clips from shows we love and a collection of interviews over the years, focusing on climate change and pressures from coal and oil rail transport, local and international nuclear history and proliferation, Skagit Valley's agricultural history and the challenges it faces, the growing tide of immigration, transgender rights, and poverty.
The three founding members, Ginny Wolff, jim justice, and Dave McConnell, continue to inquire about issues important to people in Northwest Washington. They were joined in 2008 by Jodie Buller and in 2015 by Clint Weckerly.
