Tonight, Wednesday, Oct 17th, on American Public Media’s Marketplace, they are going to do a story called The Cost of Moving to Canada. I just heard the teaser announcements they are running on their Morning Report for NPR. This is just a heads up for you, so log in now, and get your accounts open so you are ready to go. This is an GREAT opportunity for immediate feedback and to influence future coverage. I may be out of town when this story runs, so posting this alert in advance.
I would suspect, that this story will be online by about 3 pm, PDT and available for comment. I do not know how comprehensive the story content will be, but if it doesn’t include the cost of Citizenship double taxation, the IRS offshore jihad, and the controversy over FATCA, then it fails. You will have to educate them.
If you want to listen live, it is carried WNYC at 6:30 pm EDT live here, This link should launch an internet radio player pop up and start streaming automatically. If you prefer a west coast station, it will be on KUOW at 6:30 pm PDT here. Click on the appropriate media in the Now Playing box. If you have a Windows media player add-on it should play directly in your browser. If you don’t, it will download a kuow.asx file, which you can remove from your download folder by dragging to your desk top and click on it. This should launch Windows Media Player, or your default player. The radio station will then stream online.
Also, for those of you you want to send separate messages (in addition to posting a comment) to the main host, Kai Rysdall, here are his contact details. Direct email feedback messages here. Twitter messages can be sent to @MarketplaceAPM or @kairyssdal or you can follow them. BTW, I am blocked from following Kai, but not Marketplace. Maybe he only wants those to follow him that he follows, and I am not so privileged :)
Now, let’s see what Kai has to say in the story he is about to run. It should be interesting.
