Talkin' Iran Negotiations on CounterSpin Radio

As negotiations over Iran's nuclear program continue in Geneva, I was lucky enough to do interview with Steve Rendall for CounterSpin, the weekly radio show of the vital media watchdog group, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR).

You can listen to it here. My interview, which follows one with the great Trevor Timm, begins at the 18:35 mark and runs about eight and a half minutes.

Here is Counterspin's run-down of the program:
This week on CounterSpin: Polls show Americans overwhelmingly opposed to the government's mass surveillance programs; they find the unconstitutional spying "alarming" and don't think it's making them safer. There's legislative movement to "reform" surveillance procedures--but is it real reform or windowdressing? We'll hear from Trevor Timm of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Also on CounterSpin today: Nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers resumed on November 20, after falling apart nearly two weeks earlier. But the US press seems a little confused about why those earlier talks failed. We’ll talk with Nima Shirazi of Wide Asleep in America about that--and about what to watch out for as talks go forward.
