Carlos in Mexico

CarlosI’m Carlos. I’m a WHYS listener from Mexico City. I love this programme because it provides a perspective about global issues, and it is ordinary people like me sharing their views on how these issues affect our lives.

About a month ago I had the incredible opportunity to take part in the programme that was broadcasted from Mexico City, just right after the swine flue outbreak took place.

Most memorable dining moment on a train?

Italy’s railways Ferrovie dello Stato are phasing out restaurant cars on trains by the end of the year to replace them with snack bars to save money.

Where and how are you listening?

You don’t need to write an essay, but it’d be really interesting to hear how you listen (ie. BBC FM relay, BBC shortwave, online, public radio rebroadcasts and so on) and where you do it. The reason I ask is I’ve had a couple of surprises recently from NZ and the US.

Talking points for 28 April

Good morning, thanks to Katharina in Belgium and Agostinho in Jamaica for a sterling job in moderating the fourth blank page. We’ll be reading through your ideas for programmes with great interest. Turning to today’s programme, a report by the World Bank says the Israeli blockade on Gaza is having a crippling effect on it’s economy. Not all that surprising you may think, but Palestinian economic recovery is seen as crucial for U.S.-backed Mideast peace efforts.

Good governance

Thanks to Hannah and Will for excellent work at the weekend, and you managed to keep the agenda broad despite some attempts to railroad it. I’d be interested to hear from you both (and Brett and Lubna) about whether the experience makes you feel differently about the WHYS “community”.

Talking points for 8 April

Many thanks to all of you that took part in last night’s programme on the Olympic torch relay.  Over 200 comments on the blog and collectively you helped produce a sparkling on air programme which is well worth a listen on the podcast if you missed it.

Today we’ll be focussing on whether women should tell their employer if they want a baby? You’ve been talking about it and Chloe’s blog post yesterday already has great comments. Are you affected?  Let us know by the usual channels or post on the blog.

Would you like to be famous?

Hi I’m Janet in Oregon (I listen on OPB) and I want to talk about fame. Do you want it and how would you react if you got it? And have you ever given someone famous your attention – asked for an autograph or taken a photo? Did you think about how they feel when you did it?
