 Comrade 'Fafdar' of the Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan / Justin Panos on the Drummond Report
 Radio BASICS (CHRY 105.50 FM Toronto)  
 Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd) 
In the feature interview, we talk to a member of the Communist-Maoist Party of Afghanistan, the largest militant revolutionary and secular organization in Afghanistan that is resisting the NATO occupation. Comrade 'Fafdar' talks to us about the the history and future of the occupation, the Karzai government, the Taliban, and the history of Maoism in Afghanistan.

For our second interview, we talk to York U PhD candidate Justin Panos on the recently released Drummond Report. Panos discusses how privatization is to blame for rising health care costs, not an aging population.
