Occupy Next (CBC Radio documentary)

Ira Basen, producer and presenter of Occupy Next

New CBC Radio documentary: Occupy Next

We’re interrupting our regularly scheduled PR Conversations programming to tell you the exciting news that that Ira Basen has another documentary, airing on Sunday, April 1st (no joke) on The Sunday Edition.

I asked Ira to tell me what this one was about:

Occupy Next looks first at the rather extraordinary impact the Occupy movement has had on American politics and culture in its first six months. It then explores where the movement plans to go from here, focusing on its plan for a “general strike” in New York City on May 1.

It faces external political and logistical challenges, but possibly the even bigger challenge comes from inside, where its own processes and ideology might get in the way of it forging the kind of alliances it needs to accomplish its objectives.”

Occupy Next will be broadcast on CBC Radio Ones The Sunday Edition on Sunday, April 1, 2012, in the third hour (approximately 11:05 a.m. ET) in the various North American time zones. It is 50 minutes long. It can also be streamed live from the CBC Radio web page.

Update: now available as a pop-up audio file on a dedicated CBC website page.  Featured Documentary: Occupy Next
