Visit to Al-Jazeera

This week I had the opportunity to do my first interview with Al-Jazeera English. While visiting their DC studio, I also got the opportunity to look around and check out their live feed, a rare luxury for those of us in the U.S., where the government has blocked Al-Jazeera from negotiating a deal with any cable or satellite providers. Amazing stuff. Kind of like the BBC with a Global South focus. In the half hour or so I spent waiting for my interview to start, I saw clips from Kenya, Palestine, Pakistan, a focus group on African development. I thought it was pretty impressive.

Anyway, here are the clips of the show I was on, called inside story. If you have time, you may want to check out Al-Jazeera's youtube channel. You can also get a premium subscription from their website which apparently lets you check out their archives in better quality, but I haven't checked that out as yet.
