Poodle Radio, February 20, 2010

An hour on Haiti with a reporter who was there

This week’s Poodle Radio is almost entirely devoted to Haiti and the efforts currently going on there to heal, stabilize, and rebuild after its immensely destructive 7.0 Mw earthquake of January 12. Indy reporter Chris Meagher joins Colin Marshall in the studio to discuss the week he recently spent in the Haitian capital of Port-au-prince, following the work of the Santa Barbara-based Direct Relief International to secure space for their incoming shipments of medical supplies. His experience became the cover story for this week’s issue of the paper.
