Episode 11 - War for the Digital Age

• January 22nd, 2011

In this episode of NWR, Michael talks about the war being waged online for the control of information and how it is starting to affect the world around us.  From copyright to government secrecy to protests, the internet is helping us liberate ourselves from the status quo.  Tools of the information age are turning into the people's weapons.  Napster helped liberate us from copyright, and Wikileaks is leading the charge to liberate us from subterfuge.  What's next?  We have to act!

Episode 07 - Cultural Edition - Belle Plaine Live at the 2010 Regina Folk Festival

• September 16th, 2010

In this edition of the Northwest Rebellion I have the privilege of broadcasting Belle Plaine, live in concert from the 2010 Regina Folk Festival.  She is living proof that art is alive in Saskatchewan, and that supporting artists like her pays.  Belle Plaine headlined an event on September 14th in Regina for the laid off workers of XL Beef.  She's a real prairie girl, with real western principles.
