Brad Friedman in Eureka

Today I got to meet Brad Friedman of the Brad Blog. He is one of my heroes and has spent the last 4 years or so working on election integrity issues around the country. Brad and his photographer/videographor and confidant, Desi Doyen are traveling around on vacation shooting video and having a great time. Their latest video is on Brad's web site http://www.bradblog.com/.
The video takes viewers on the 120 foot span of the "D River" in Oregon. Known as the country's shortest river the journey takes viewers from the headwaters to the Pacific Ocean in just 120 feet.
Brad and Desi came by KGOE today and we spoke about blogs, progressive talk radio, the Peter B. Collins Show (Brad is a regular Fridays from 5 to 6pm on Peter B. heard locally on kgoe1480 am), and other exciting things possible in the new world of blogs and electronic media.
I asked if he and Peter B. were going to do extended election coverage again this year on election night, he wasn't sure but said he would talk to Mr. B. about it. I also invited him to join Peter B. this year when he comes to town to do his show live from the F. Street Eureka Theater. He said he would try to make it. ( Possibly in October)
Brad Friedman does a radio show that can be heard at http://www.bradshow.com/
And is involved in the Velvet Revolution at http://www.velvetrevolution.us/
Keeping them honest, Brad is kicking ass and taking names. Thanks Brad for the work that you do! Have a great vacation and we hope to see you back in Eureka later this year.
