I interviewed Medea Benjamin on May 27, 2013 a few days after she'd interrupted President Obama three times in a major speech. 

This is part one of a two part interview. Here is a link to the audio podcast.

Rob Kall:   And welcome to the Rob Kall Bottom Up Radio Show, WNJC 1360 AM out of Washington Township, reaching metro Philly and South Jersey, sponsored by Opednews.com .  Tonight, my guest is Medea Benjamin.  Medea Benjamin is the co-founder of "Code Pink," the co-founder of "Global Exchange," the author of Drone Warfare: Killing By Remote Control, and a couple of days ago when President Obama was giving his speech, she was the woman whose voice was heard as he was repeatedly interrupted.  Welcome to the show again, Medea!

 

Medea Benjamin:   Hey, Rob.  Thanks for having me on.

 

Rob Kall:   Yeah.  It was wonderful hearing your voice the other day, a voice I've gotten to know in the role you were playing there; because you do it a lot, don't you?

Medea Benjamin:   Well, yeah.  Every once in a while when the moment seems right.

 

Rob Kall:   So the reason I wanted to talk to you: I know you've done a lot of interviews on this, and so I want to talk briefly about why you did it, but more importantly, I want to talk about how you did it, because I think this works.  I think it was brilliant and it was an incredibly effective way to get a different position heard in front of millions of people.
