Join Truth to Tell's Andy Driscoll Wednesday morning at 11 as he talks with Democracy Now's Amy Goodman about her beginnings and what makes her so committed to the idea of independent public media. The interview will be spiced with remarks Amy delivered to the Public Radio Program Director's Annual Conference held September 27-29 at the downtown Minneapolis Marriott Hotel.
(Since that appearance, the seemingly tireless Amy Goodman has contracted Bell's Palsy, a nonfatal attack on the facial nerves which causes facial muscles to weaken or become paralyzed. One side of the face normally droops as a result. It's caused overnight by trauma to the 7th cranial nerve, and is not permanent. People with Bells palsy can return to work and resume normal activity as soon as they feel up to it. Amy was on the air almost immediately. Bell's palsy is far more common than once believed.)
