The Marc Steiner Show

  • Tonya Gonnella Frichner – Lawyer for the Iroquois Nationals, President and founder of the American Indian Law Alliance in New York, and North America’s regional representative to the United Nations’ Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues
  • James Mackay – Lecturer in comparititve literature at European University Cyprus and author of the article Native Americans Should Not Have to Earn Sovereignty

  1. Was it intentional or mistake!!! Marc, the most important and critical interview on your podcast has been deleted. Where is the rest of the interview with Tonya Gonnella Frichner. It’s been truncated. Please repost the podcast with the full interview or at least a third link with the remaining portion. She had some really critical points to be made. It is my hope that YOUR show of all shows is not censoring the speech of an indigenous guest who made critically valid points.

    -Thank you

  2. Thanks for your concern!  We just had a few technical issues and while we were fixing them, the podcast was down.  The full hour should be up now correctly.  Thanks again.
