Corporate Watchdog Radio
January 18, 2006


Rachel's summary: For almost 25 years, Sanford Lewis -- lawyer,
writer, film maker, activist-strategist, and computer guru -- has been
helping grass-roots community groups figure out what's important and how
to fight the good fight. Now, with Bill Baue, Sanford has started a
web-based radio program and podcast service, focused on the heart of the
problem: corporate power.

Already broadcast on radio stations from Alaska to Vermont, Corporate
Watchdog Radio holds companies accountable for their social,
environmental, and economic impact

Corporate Watchdog Radio (CWR), a half-hour show broadcast twice
monthly, is a new hybrid radio show and podcast launched using both
platforms simultaneously.

Freely accessible on the internet, on broadcast radio, and through the
iTunes Music Store, Corporate Watchdog Radio is designed for financial
professionals, corporate social responsibility activists, and
investors concerned about the social ethics and environmental impact
of the corporations in their portfolios.

CWR exposes corporate wrongdoing and applauds businesses that do the
right thing. The program investigates how corporate malfeasance can
adversely impact the well-being of people and the planet, and commends
companies making healthy financial returns by supporting social and
environmental progress.

With its lively dialogue and interview format, CWR teams journalist
Bill Baue with environmental attorney and filmmaker Sanford Lewis.
Baue and Lewis bring a wealth of investigative, legal, and reporting
experience to the matter at hand. Lewis, a leading national expert on
corporate disclosure to investors on environmental and social
liabilities, has represented shareowners and activists for over 23
years, and has produced films on corporate accountability issues. Baue
has covered socially responsible investing (SRI) and corporate social
responsibility (CSR) for SocialFunds for half a decade. Together, they
analyze hot topics and breaking stories, and interview experts who are
holding corporations accountable in traditional and innovative ways.

On the latest show (available January 18) Lewis interviews Glenn
Evers, a former DuPont scientist, and Attorney Alan Kluger, who is
suing DuPont regarding Teflon. Evers, who worked for DuPont for more
than 20 years, recently flagged concerns regarding health and
environmental impacts of Dupont products used to coat fast food
wrappers. Kluger has filed a $5 billion lawsuit against Dupont over
the alleged toxicity of Teflon coated cookware. While the Wall Street
Journal, MSNBC, and other mainstream media outlets have only skimmed
the surface of this story, CWR distinguishes itself by offering in-
depth exploration of impacts and implications--including the potential
public health hazards the chemical PFOA poses in ubiquitous products
such as paper wrapping for microwave popcorn, fast food, and pizza.
Lewis is himself a representative of DuPont Shareholders for Fair
Value, a group of DuPont shareholders including Amalgamated Bank,
United Steelworkers and others concerned about the financial impacts
of PFOA on DuPont.

Recent editions of CWR include interviews with Cristobal Bonifaz, lead
lawyer in the ongoing lawsuit against ChevronTexaco for the
environmental destruction of the Ecuadorian rainforest, and reports
from Dow Chemical activist Diane Wilson, author of An Unreasonable
Woman, just prior to her arrest at a Tom Delay fundraiser in Houston.

Corporate Watchdog Radio is produced for broadcast on Valley Free
Radio, a low power FM station in Northampton, Massachusetts, a
Pacifica network affiliate. Other radio stations broadcasting CWR
include The Journey Radio webcasting from St. Louis, Missouri; WOOL-LP
in Southern Vermont; WRCT in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; KWMD in
Anchorage, Alaska; and WRFU in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois. Additional
radio stations can pick up CWR from the Pacifica Audioport website
or from the CWR website. The webcast and audio archive is available
through the website, or as a podcast feed and by searching
Corporate Watchdog Media on the iTunes music store.
