Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Greg Palast, Paul Summerville, Janine Bandcroft Mar. 19, 2012

This Week: “They were all vultures, and the rest of us were just food.” So begins reporting investigator Greg Palast’s latest recording of the everyday depravity that is the modern world, ‘Vultures’ Picnic: In Pursuit of Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates, and High-Finance Carnivores.’

‘Vultures’ Picnic’ joins Palast’s previous best-sellers, ‘The Best Democracy Money Can Buy,’ and ‘Armed Madhouse’ to complete a chilling trilogy chronicling the corporate malfeasance and personal moral turpitude literally endangering the lives and well-being of every living creature on Earth.

And; down at this end of the oil pipeline, where you and me, and those who drive internal combustion engines need to go to get their fuel, the price of that fix has risen, not only in a steady progression, but by fits and spurts, sometimes yo-yoing by ten and twenty percent at points of purchase in a single day! It wasn’t always this way; so, what’s changed?

Paul Summerville and tracking the international economy at the gas pump in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the things going on on the streets of the city and beyond. But first, Greg Palast takes us on a Vultures’ Picnic.
