On Vacation, Returning July 7

Your humble host has left his post for a fact-finding mission in his own backyard, northern California. I'll be off the grid (except when I'm not) recharging body and mind with grape-based beverages, campfire cooking and good friends. I'm hosting my friends from Brazil, Alberto and Heloisa, on a tour of the Mendocino coast, Mt. Shasta, and Lake Tahoe. I will break radio silence to post a few pix on Facebook, find me there as Peter B. Collins Show.

While I'm away, browse below and catch up on some of my recent juicy interviews on many topics that get short shrift in the corporate media. And make my day by taking out a new subscription...it provides me with revenue and validation!
