#OCCUPYEARTH
















- Watch more Politics Videos at Vodpod.


This timeline of events is really quite inspiring. For example, the hactivist group known as anonymous uploaded a video threatening the NYPD: "If we hear of brutality in the next 36 hours then we will take you down from the internet as you have taken the protesters voices from the airwaves."

PHAT ROOT RADIO - Where art thou?

Where have we been? Man where have YOU been!?! If you caught the last radio show, we mentioned the restructuring of the Phat Root Radio format and platform. We have moved from live broadcasting on radio23.org to a podcast format hosting our songs via mixcloud. We are in the process of transferring our 30+ archived shows to the new host site and getting back in gear.

In the meantime, we encourage you to check out our previous shows. over 100+ hours of dope underground hip hop has been aired since we started a year and 4 months ago. Cheers to a 100 more, we'll be back stronger than ever!
