Noam Chomsky

Host Jonathan Judaken talks with renowned M.I.T. Professor of Linguistics and Philosophy Noam Chomsky.

An unrelenting critic of social injustice and state violence, in one scholar's words, “Chomsky's method involves a relentless erudition: scouring alternative sources; exhuming buried documents; reviving forgotten or abandoned histories.”  They discuss Chomsky's childhood and upbringing, his opposition to the war in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, and his thoughts on the Tea Party and the Occupy movements.

My mother introduced me to WKNO-FM and public radio long before I can remember. I suppose the first thing I really recall about WKNO-FM is that every afternoon, when my mother picked me up from school, the radio was tuned-in to The World, then All Things Considered, probably beginning around age 8. The way these reporters and hosts took you from the comfort of your mom's van to wherever in the world they were reporting from absolutely fascinated me. From then on, I was officially hooked.
