Ears To Our World

UPDATE: Ears To Our World ended operations at the end of 2019. However, similar activities will continue through other organizations. We are leaving this interview with Thomas Witherspoon as a sound document and tribute to what he and Ears To Our World achieved over many years. 

As radio enthusiasts, what could make us happier than the idea of distributing free shortwave radios to developing countries? Well, that is exactly what an American-based organization does (did). It’s called Ears To Our World.

Bob Zanotti talked via Skype with founder and executive director of Ears To Our World, Thomas Witherspoon, who, himself, is a long-time shortwave listener and radio amateur (K4SWL). Tom is also the owner and editor of the SWLing website.
