SSVH March 13

We begin with some words spoken by Leonard Cohen in one of his final public interviews, set to the final song on his final album. Then our minds and hearts are wrenched by the reworkings of German pianist, Lambert which continues behind a TED talk given by Bettina Warburg, a Blockchain Expert and Co-Founder of the laboratory Animal Ventures. She explains what the heck the Blockchain is, and how it is going to radically change global economy.  Cool beans, eh?! Next comes a set of music, and then an episode from The Real News Network. More music to follow and close the program.

Here is the file, airing on Wednesday morning 8PST, March 13th 2019
