Listen to entire program here (The program is slightly truncated):

Occupy the Midwest was a major conference that  “originated with a call to action from Occupy St. Louis looking to host a regional Midwest conference in the early Spring of 2012. Many cities answered the call and the conference was a great success for activists and occupations to network and share ideas and knowledge. Occupy The Midwest continues to evolve in working toward its goal of multifaceted coordination across the Midwest to strengthen the Occupy movement. Occupy The Midwest is looking to hold 2 conferences a year on a 5/7 month cycle during April and September.”
