Over the past several decades radio has played a vital role in informing and mobilizing communities around the world. On this edition, we’ll hear about street children in India making and broadcasting their own radio shows in the marketplace, and a Native American-run radio station at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. We’ll also take a look at micro-radio. Proponents won the right in 2000 to have low-powered community stations in the United States.
