ThoughtCast is a podcast and public radio interview program on authors, academics and intellectuals. Iâ€™m the host, Jenny Attiyeh, and my goal is to offer something that is glaringly absent from the media today: a bridge between the publications and pursuits of the academic world and a curious, informed, mainstream audience. By providing detailed, unhurried conversation with current writers and thinkers, I aim to create a show that is both informative and entertaining â€“ a synergy between the media and the ivory tower. Check out my interview with Samuel Huntington, the provocative political scientist and author of "The Clash of Civilizations." Or listen to my program with Ilan Stavans, the hispanic 'public intellectual', author and and Latino literary critic. He talks about his identity as a Mexican-Jewish-American, about his controversial dictionary, "Spanglish," and his new book, "Dictionary Days." And thanks!

What you folks have stumbled across is an experiment and a learning experience. Campground Pirate Radio has dedicated itself to bringing back the sound and feel of 1970s FM radio.````Hosted by your intrepid DJ (or PJ… Pod Jockey), Uncle Waldo, and broadcasting from his gun turret high atop the Rancho del Waldo compound, we’ll be bringing you a weekly dose of 1970s style radio.````It doesn’t mean we’ll be sticking to primarily 1970s music… you’ll hear all kinds of stuff from Pod Safe to Fair Use music, news and whatever. We’ll be playing the long tracks with no commercial interruptions. And, it ain’t for the squemish… so if a little reality and cussin’ turns you off… well, you’ve been warned.
