Government And Organizations Podcasts
Alaskans love their permanent fund dividends. But for the last three years the amount of the PFD was reduced in order to help balance the budget. Now, the new governor has promised to pay Alaskans for the difference, and make sure that each and every one of us gets thousands of dollars more this year. But the state also has a $1.5 billion dollar deficit. How can lawmakers make the payments and balance the budget? The new podcast, Paying Dividends, will follow along with the legislative session as this high stakes debate plays out in Juneau.

The Grey Mask takes true spy stories from espionage history and brings them to life with enhanced audio and professional actors. Here you will find true stories of criminals and heroes, clandestine missions at midnight, black ops, or perhaps a suave James Bond like spy will peek around the corner. <br> <br> Spy mission are not always crime stories; sometimes the spy is a military hero fighting for his or her country and sometimes the clandestine operation can turn a war in another direction. Indeed, covert spies have altered the balance of power, whether it be nuclear weapons, or today’s Wall Street financial markets.<br> Spies also exist in the world of modern corporate espionage. Here you will find brazen spies, stealing company secrets, or playing a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse between competing conglomerates. <br> <br> All the stories are fascinating because they lay forth every aspect of human nature found in a Shakespearean tragedy. Love, power, greed, honor, and betrayal are all found in the Gray Mask. The podcast looks at the history of espionage, from the days of the ancient Greeks, up to today’s cyber spies hacking into a competitor’s network to find dark web secrets not accessible to the public. <br>
