This is the first episode of the Beta phase of our podcast. This week we have news updates on Congress returning from summer recess, George Allen’s race problem and a special report on Path to 9/11 by Bruce Ewert who posted some key information on the story on DailyKos last Friday. We also have a special tribute to the memory of those lost in the 9/11 attacks from some friends who shared their memories of the morning of September 11th, 2001.
Monday is the 5th anniversary of September 11, 2001. The events that transpired that day evoke strong feelings in many people, as do the events of the 5 years since they happened. In the spirit of SRP Newsweekly’s mission to give voice to the netroots, we are asking people to share their thoughts and feelings with the Roots Project community by helping us create content for our podcast.
You can share your words in a variety of ways.
- You can post comments in this thread,
- Send us an email (SRPNewsweekly AT gmail DOT com), or
- Leave us a message on our voice mail by calling (641) 985-5999 and using 17365# as your access code. If you use the voice mail please keep the message of a manageable length.
Over the next few days, the Newsweekly staff will sift through the comments, emails and messages to compile a podcast. Voicemail messages will be added directly to the podcast if they are chosen. The podcast will be published here on Sunday morning. Please join us then to hear what this community has produced.
The anniversary of September 11 is a solemn occasion so please be respectful in the comments. It is important for people to feel comfortable when sharing these personal memories and feelings.

The Roots Project podcast began as a solo effort on my part to keep RP members and interested parties updated on the project, to provide news of interest to the community and to interview persons of interest to our friends online. I began recording these podcasts in May of 2006 and the podcast has grown with time into a group project. Read the rest of this entry »
