billsimmon 07 Jul 2009 | : episodes

Our special guest this week (joining us in the second hour) was N. Todd Pritsky (AKA “NTodd”), a friend and peace activist who just returned from Israel/Palestine and who blogs at dohiyimir.org. Bill and NTodd used to do a weekly podcast together (in 2004and 2005) called Friday Coffee Blogging.

We’ve also included a little bit of pre-show banter this week, just because.
