Support KPFA! Get Best of Behind the News, vers 6.0!

As I’ve said many times before, I wouldn’t be doing my radio show were it not on KPFA. So if you like Behind the News, support KPFA. And there’s a lot of great stuff on the station during the other 167 hours of the week, too.

You can get a collection of 77 interviews I call the Best of Behind the News, vers 6.0. It includes all 16 of the interviews I’ve done with Yanis Varoufakis. Yeah, of course these are all on the web, but here they are collected in one place, with the added bonus of supporting KPFA. Yours for a contribution of $120.

Here are the interviews, along with the date of original broadcast:
