First Broadcast: 7/17/95 Repeated: 7/1/96
An interview with a squatter about the resistance to Mayor Giuliani's efforts to unjustly evict the squatters of East 13th Street in Manhattan. (Another view which is often ignored and distorted by the "mainstream" media, I might add.)

Our Kiwi-Strawberry taste test of 1995. Most people seemed to like Nestea's Calypso-Berry drink. But out of all the non-tea beverages, Snapple was the clear winner. Since then, I've also come across kiwi-strawberry flavored sorbet (it used to be there, anyway), Jell-O, and Kool-Aid. I keep trying to convince Kim that we should have another taste-test with all these new products, but she thinks our tasters have had enough to last them quite a while. Maybe I can convince them otherwise in the near future. (P.S.: I finally did convince them over a year later. Watch Episode #93 for the results.)
