    Suzi Weissman began weekly broadcasting on KPFK in 1981, first with the program "Portraits of the USSR" (1981-1993) and "Read All About It" from 1981-1994. When the Soviet Union collapsed and the Cold War came to end, President George HW Bush called it 'the new world order" so Suzi started a new weekly program "The New World Disorder" that aired from 1993-1995. She has been broadcasting the weekly drive time "Beneath the Surface with Suzi Weissman" since 1994. The program archives through 2003 are held at Stanford University's Hoover Archive.
