Radio Open Source: get to know it.

From Political Anthropology Clips:
Christopher Lydon is a gifted and creative interviewer, and in late 2012 he devoted himself to connecting with intellectuals, artists and novelists in Tunisia and Egypt.  His streaming interviews are fascinating, especially for putting the listener in touch with the tempo of debates, and the profound concerns of thoughtful people in two Arab countries that have been at the very center of the Arab awakening that began in 2011 and continues now and into the future.  I strongly commend his Radio Open Source to you.  For instance, here is the touching interview with a writer and translator (Hebrew to Arabic, and after you listen to that give some moments to one of Egypt's most famous contemporary authors, Alaa al-Aswany.
