The Project Censored Show is a weekly public affairs program that airs Fridays from 1-2 P.M. Pacific time on KPFA, Pacifica Radio in Berkeley, CA.

The program focuses on “The News That Didn’t Make the News.” Each week, the Project Censored team conducts in depth interviews with their guests and offer hard hitting commentary and analysis on the key political, social, and economic issues of the day with an emphasis on critical media literacy. Beginning in 2010, and roughly 500 broadcasts later, the program is nationally syndicated on 50 stations and growing.
