Episode #128: 'LIVE from the Levant' with Patrick Henningsen, guests Marwa Osman, Vanessa Beeley & Basil Valentine
This week's very special Easter Sunday edition of THE SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on the road with host Patrick Henningsen on location in Beirut, Lebanon. This is the first episode we will be testing out ACR's new portable mini-studio, as we cover the top news stories internationally. In the first hour we'll talk about Patrick's journey so far, along with updates on events in the US and the Middle East. Halfway through the first hour we'll be joined in-studio by a special guest, Middle East-based journalist, TV presenter, geopolitical analyst and Marwa Osman, to discuss Syria, Turkey, Yemen and what to expect coming up in 2016. Later on we'll also cover this week’s SHOUT! Poll and put the next big question out to our listeners. In the third hour we're joined by 21WIRE special contributor Vanessa Beeley to talk about her recent trip to the UN to present a case against the use of cluster bombs and the one year anniversary of the war against Yemen. Later, we're joined by British betting sage, Basil Valentine, for updates on US voter and election fraud and his take on the recent Brussels attacks.
SHOUT! POLL: Is the U.S. helping or hindering the fight against ISIS? VOTE HERE.
Strap yourselves in and lower the blast shield - this is your brave new world...
