Unfortunately we don’t know -yet- how this new schedule will translate locally: 9, 10, 11 AM across the country.
Many stations are now selecting the shows they want  and it is up to them to  decide when to air them.
It is also up to you, the listeners, to ask them to air EcoTalk at a convenient time 🙂

Your call, your email can make a difference.
Thank you in advance for your help and feedback.

Post Katrina

We’ll get the latest on environmental health threats left in the wake of Katrina…what the EPA won’t tell
you about lingering risks to human health in the disaster zone. We’ll
also get an update from Washington on the embattled Endangered Species

Technical problem

Some of the links of our previous shows (before september 1) have been modified by the server that hosts them and they did not inform us of the change: therefore many broken links we are now trying to fix asap.
If you want to correct yourself the address and get to the show you need to replace within the url:
by /archive/09.01.05/

Simple… but a lot of work 🙁
Our sincere apologies and thank you for your patience and understanding.
If/when you encounter a broken link, thanks for telling us so we can fix it. 🙂 Just send us a comment from the related posting (that will greatly facilitate our tracking and fixing of the problem).
