Yo: "In The Loop: Diplomacy begins at home"

football%20small.jpgFresh off the...hard drive.

We're excited about this show -- great interviews, some sweet music from "The Smarts," and our usual dashes of humor along the way.

As usual, there are two ways to listen:

Download the show as an MP3 (you might need to right-click this link and choose "save target as...")

Stream the show on your computer using RealPlayer

little%20kim%20phone.jpgYou can specifically download the live, In The Loop version of the new song, "Irreconcilable," from The Smarts. It joins the small Pantheon of pop songs that set out to capture the perspective of Kim Jong Il. (MP3 or stream.)

pelosibush.jpgAnother separate download: Our exclusive "mashup" couples-counseling session between George Bush and Nancy Pelosi. (MP3 or stream.)

Some other highlights:

  • Two old friends, both Korean Americans, help us understand the differences of opinion within that community over how to approach North Korea.
  • A mother of three gives an inside look at how diplomacy really does begin at home
  • Stories of ordinary people who decided to ditch diplomacy in their own lives...and what happened.
  • How "Minnesota Nice" got Kim Jong Il to the table (this one's waiting for you at the end of the show)...

    Seriously, we desire your feedback. Leave it here, or use the "Enter the Loop" link at right.

Tune in tonight -- here or on the radio
