We begin by discussing the artist behind the theme music of The World Meets America Report, Dennis Rea. Host William Kern explains why Dennis Rea is an extraordinary artist, his founding of one of the most unique musical gatherings anywhere – the Seattle Improvised Music Festival, Rea’s musical explorations across the world and his mind-bending book Live from the Forbidden City.
We then do a broadcast version of a feature we have from time to time on Worldmeets.US called Spooks, Liars and Mass Surveillance. We discussed:
The new, pro-Snowden James Bond film ‘Spectre’, Snowden’s comments on the U.S. presidential race; the leak of CIA Director William Brennan’s E-Mails; Facebook’s invasive new ‘universal search’; Twitter’s new uses for your data; Rebellion over Julian Assange at the Cambridge Union; the Federal Trade Commission’s ‘explanation’ for why it took no action to prevent the misuse of the personal data of Europeans by the NSA; and our first Art Bell segment on waterfalls on Mars.
