TNRA Goes LIVE on Logos Radio Network!
Today we bring you our first live broadcast on Logos Radio Network. This will be a regular broadcast, and you can pick it up the live stream at Logos Radio every Thursday. The exact time of the 2 hour broadcast varies a little due to changing daylight saving time zones. Our next broadcast on 29 March will be at 12pm, but the following week this will shift to 11am.
Some changes in this archive from previous podcasts: there is a short INN news broadcast at the beginning of each hour - and there are ads - I hope that does not reduce your enjoyment of the show & we may be able to provide edited podcasts without ads later.
Topics covered on today's show include the anti coal seam gas rally held in Sydney recently, a recent taser death in Sydney's CBD, an in-depth interview wiith Damon Crowe on the secret history of the illuminati, and a discussion with Josh Jackon on the merits of the alternative currency, bitcoin.
A major feature in today's show is our exclusive interview with Matt Turner of the Queensland band Skinwalkers, who released an EP last year titled "Fall or Resist". Skinwalkers' music conveys a strong message of freedom and a belief in the human spirit. We include a couple tracks from their recent EP during the interview.
- Bitcoin - P2P digital currency
- Stop CSG Rally video report - Government fails people of NSW
- 'Why are they trying to make him a bad person?' Anger on the streets of Sao Paulo over Roberto's Taser death

- Cops order double Taser trial

- Skinwalkers - MySpace
Introducing Bitcoin: the new digital currency
Tonight I'm joined by Josh Jackson to discuss Bitcoin and what it means for the future of the global financial system.
"Bitcoin is a digital currency created in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto. The name refers both to the open source software he designed to make use of the currency and to the peer-to-peer network formed by running that software."
"Bitcoin eschews central authorities and issuers, using a distributed database spread across nodes of a peer-to-peer network to track transactions. Bitcoin uses digital signatures and proof-of-work to provide basic security functions, such as ensuring that bitcoins can be spent only once per owner and only by the person who owns them."
"Bitcoins, often abbreviated as BTC, can be saved on a personal computer in the form of a wallet file or kept with a third party wallet service, and in either case bitcoins can be sent over the Internet to anyone with a Bitcoin address. The peer-to-peer topology and lack of central administration are features that make it infeasible for any authority (governmental or otherwise) to manipulate the quantity of bitcoins in circulation, thereby mitigating inflation"
