This week’s archive show describes some successes and some failures, we reveal the behind-the-scenes battle for the Pacifica Network’s soul, we give due credit to the corporate media, we describe our ‘new sheriff’, and finally I tell the story of a ‘rebel girl’ that I knew in Seattle back in the 90’s.
