RADIO CURIOUS: LONG FORM INTERVIEWS ABOUT LIFE and IDEAS

Welcome to the 31st year of Radio Curious, now proudly part of the Library of Congress, and  regularly broadcast on approximately 100 radio stations.

Here you will find close to 1000 half hour interviews on a curiously wide array of topics concerning life and ideas.  These programs are a gift to you from Radio Curious host and producer Barry Vogel. He started Radio Curious in 1991, to expand the work he began in 1974 as an Attorney, Counselor and Mediator in Ukiah, California, the Mendocino County seat, located about 110 miles north of San Francisco, California.

THIS WEEK’S INTERVIEW My guest in this edition of Radio Curious is Kristen Gardner. Lori Berenson is a 35-year-old woman from New York who has been in prison in Peru since 1996 for allegedly conspiring with Peruvian revolutionaries, known as MRTA, (Movimiento Revoluncionario Tupac Amaru). Lori Berenson was twice convicted in Peru, first by judges who shrouded themselves in hoods, and then again in a slightly more open proceeding. Her second trial still lacked adequate due process rights, as unanimously determined by the Costa Rica based Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. However, in a subsequent decision on appeal, handed down in December 2004, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, also based in Costa Rica, affirmed Lori’s 20-year prison sentence. In this program, Kristen Gardner, a friend and supporter of Lori Berenson since they first met at students in Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1983, discusses Lori, the person she is, and her case.
