Middle East Minute +

    Mon-Fri approx 6:28pm

    The Middle East Minute+ (MEM+) is a joint project of KPFK & Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP). MEM+ is a 2 minute daily (Mon-Fri) primer about one, two or a few important things or perspectives going on in or about the Middle East that listeners will not hear from major corporate news outlets that day. Our goal is to focus on stories about people in the Middle East, beyond the corporate & military interests centered in the stories we get from mainstream media outlets.
