You can listen by going to the archive http://www.wbai.org/archive.php for that date and time and scrolling to the 45:05 -- 54:15 mark, or paste the following link: nuarchive.wbai.org/mp3/wbai_150919_100003citywatch.mp3 and go to the times indicated above (a link won't work here. You have to copy and paste it into the URL space on your browser).

I was on James Low's show (bit.ly/1QyNjYV) for 10 minutes from Kansas, KJAG RADIO, September 30th. The show was entitled Interview the Economist Who Penned a Teachable House of Cards Plot Twist (bit.ly/1GIe4lV) playing off a debt-free money debt ceiling-defeating script suggestion I had made for the Netflix show "House of Cards." It's still a good idea! We talked seriously about Sovereign Money and the distortion of economic history. This was new to James Low and he asked me to return but due to technical difficulties we haven't been able to reschedule yet.

I had one of the best times with Jeff Santos on his show October 2, for about 20 minutes (there's a long commercial break in the middle). We talked about sovereign money, land value taxation, and Public Banking. It was good to have enough time to thoroughly explain these concepts with a host who was open to them. You can listen starting at the 28:30 mark here:

One of my longer and in-depth interviews on Georgism and Henry George was with Kris Welsh on October 28, 2015. The archive will be here: http://bit.ly/1NHsrIG when it is posted.

One of the things I tried to do in my book is to tear down the falsely constructed Right vs. Left dichotomy, at least on economic and some general government emphasis issues. I had a 15-question quiz to challenge people's assumptions over what it means to be a Liberal vs. a Conservative. Out of 300 bloggers Sarah sent the article to, only one, California Blogger, posted it as a stand-alone article here: http://bit.ly/1lz17WE. If you take the quiz, I think it'll challenge your assumptions!

Has the world changed yet?

I did 15 radio shows over the course of the campaign, one of which came from a referral from the Public Banking Institute (http://ernestlyspeakingradio.com/scott-baker-community-banking/) once they learned I was on a publicity radio "tour." Fourteen radio shows, 1 blog post and 1 newspaper byline came by way of Smith Publicity. Was it worth it? Well, there's no doubt I got on media I would not have gotten on had I pitched my book and myself on my own. But then again, I have gotten on TV/radio and made presentations on my own (newthinking.blogspot.com/). And Smith was unable to book me on any TV interviews though I've been on local cable access TV before.
