The People Speak has evolved over the years with many great guests who have been interviewed by some very fine hosts.
We are a 55 minute show airing every other Sunday between 5-6pm Pacific/8-9pm Eastern. The show features a guest interview from any number of realms of interest (entertainment, science, philosophy, healing, spirituality, activism, politics, literature, etc.).
The guests share their stories, lives, strategies, books, philosophy, films, music, or whatever it is they use as a vehicle for making a difference for the better.
The radio show name, The People Speak, is based on the idea of allowing our audience - the People - a chance to interact with the guests during the hour, and we take phone or text questions from them during the interview.
Past guests include such notables as Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the late Howard Zinn, Nobel Laureates Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi, Kathryn Najimy, Oliver Stone, Jesse Ventura, Richard Belzer, Cynthia McKinney, Cindy Sheehan, Scott Horton, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, George Galloway, Roseanne Barr, Ed Asner, Chevy Chase, as well as various reps from Amnesty International, UN World Food Programme, and many others.
Charles Strange is the father of Michael Strange a 25 year old Navy Cryptologist Technician (Collection) Petty Officer 1st Class (Expeditionary Warfare Specialist) who had been assigned to an East Coast-based SEAL team and died Aug. 6 in Wardak province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when the CH-47 Chinook helicopter in which he was riding was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade. He was among 30 Americans who died. Eight Afghans also were killed, according to the US Military.
Co-guest, David Siler, a Network Engineer and Administrator also joins the show to speak about assisting Charles Strange when he discovered his computer's security had been compromised after using a disc given to him by the US Military, which supposedly contained documentation on the circumstances surrounding his son Michael's death.
ABOUT THE DEATHS OF THE SEAL TEAM 6 IN AFGHANISTAN
The mission that killed Michael also killed 29 other U.S. service members, seven Afghan commandos, an Afghan interpreter and a U.S. military working dog in Afghanistan's Tangi Valley in Wardak province, west of Kabul.
The families of the soldiers who were killed feel that they have not been told the full story about what happened and feel that the military is concealing if not outright lying. Some, such as Charles Strange have been quite vocal. Charles actually talked face to face with President Obama about his concerns and says the President promised he would look deeply into the matter, but he didn't hear anything back from the President since that encounter.
In fact, after asking questions of the military regarding his son's death, Charles and his wife have been the victims of what they believe are surveillance and harassment. Charles research, documentation and less than revealing encounters with the military regarding his son's death have lead him to believe that there is a cover-up of a suicide mission that was set-up to target his son and others by elements within our own military and perhaps even contributed to by actions of those within the White House.
He will provide the evidence upon which he bases this conclusion.
