Monday 25 May 2009: Misha Glenny/Cheri Snook
On 25 May I talked with British journalist and author Misha Glenny about his book McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld, which has just been released in paperback by Vintage Books.

I then talked with KVMR broadcaster and activist Cheri Snook about Words of Realness, a concert featuring musical settings of poems by New Folsom Prison inmate Spoon Jackson, which will take place at 8 PM on Tuesday 26 May at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City. Cheri has been active in art and writing programs at Folsom for many years and helped produce the Michael Franti concert which KVMR broadcast live from Folsom in 2005.
