Debut of RU Sirius radio

BB pal and cyberculture icon RU Sirius has launched a podcast radio network called The MondoGlobo Network. The first show premiers today:

Fred Burks will be the first guest on the RU Sirius Show.  Burks worked as an interpreter for President George W. Bush and recently testified for the defense in the trial of Abu Bakar Baasyir, the 68-year-old preacher the U.S. blames for the 2002 bombings in Bali, Indonesia that have been associated with Al Qaeda.  In the words of a 2/22/05 Wall Street Journal article, "Frederick Burks believes in UFOs, communes with dolphins, runs a Web site that promotes conspiracy theories about U.S. complicity in the 9/11 attacks and thinks Washington may have had a hand in blowing up bars on the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

And on June 11, RU's NeoFiles Webzine goes aural:

Continuing in the tradition of the text-based NeoFiles website, RU Sirius will bring his interviews exploring the edges of 21st century science, technology, and philosophy into the podverse.  The opening NeoFiles radio conversation will be with New York Times technology writer John Markoff about his new book, What The Dormouse Said: How The 60s Counterculture Shaped the Personal Computer.
