First some reflections on the antiGMO: local produce--now but a fond memory here in New England. Then we look at GMOs--genetically-modified plants sold as food.

The show includes TV-news and press coverage on failed GMO-labelling bills in California and Connecticut--and on guerilla labellers stalking Connecticut's supermarket aisles. Plus selections from Gary Null's video documentary, "GMO: Ticking Time Bomb."
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "very noses") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
IMHO, some of "GMO: Ticking Time Bomb (Part 1)" is best viewed while wearing a tinfoil hat, though much of it seems very sound indeed. Our show rebroadcasts only the latter. The complete video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAL_AMdMXqY

NOTE: I'm experimenting with dropping the low-fidelity, 32-kbps mp3 version of the program. If this causes a problem for you, please let me know (via the "Contact contributor" link on this page). --Ken
