Radio Curious: Charles Reich – A Non-Marxist View of Material Capitalism, Segment 1

3 weeks 5 days ago
The Greening of America & Opposing the System The market economy often seems to have many inherent problems. Indeed, a Marxist historical view presupposes that the fundamental contradictions of capitalism will inevitably lead to socialism. Far from this extreme, Charles Reich, author of “The Greening of America” and, more recently, “Opposing the System,” believes that individuals must be nonetheless confronted with these contradictions and the human conditions created by material capitalism. Charles Reich recommends “The Poetry of Colleridge,” by Charles R. Woodring. Originally Broadcast: November 4, 1996

TUC Radio: Onkalo - Into Eternity - from the Archives, Segment 2

3 weeks 5 days ago
Onkalo is the first permanent storage for waste from nuclear power plants in the world. Blasted into bedrock of the island of Olkiluoto in Finland on the shores of the Baltic Sea, it has to remain secure for 100,000 years. Danish filmmaker Michael Madsen's documentary of the building in progress of Onkalo is a meditation on eternity, insanity and the impossibility of projecting anything 100,000 years into the future. The film also proves eloquently and with expert statements the terrible danger that arises from so-called "spent" nuclear fuel from power plants and makes us see Fukushima with very different eyes. This radio program presents excerpts from the film and its amazing sound design.

3 weeks 5 days ago
The Dow Jones Industrial Average. What does this omnipresent ticker in the corner of our TV screens really mean? Is it a gauge of our country’s economic health, an indication of corporate growth, or something else? This week on Sea Change Radio, we discuss the Dow and the stock market as a whole with economic researcher Chris Martenson. The co-founder of Peak Prosperity, Martenson talks about how our obsession with the Dow helps the investor class, describes the economic indicators that environmentalists should be looking at, and weighs in on whether it’s OK to root for the Dow to go down.

Vincent Emanuele: The 2020 Elections & Left Wing Activism, Segment 1

3 weeks 6 days ago
The 2020 elections are upon us and millions of people throughout the United States will get involved with politics for the very first time. Many leftists refuse to participate in electoral projects even local efforts, but especially and understandably campaigns for President of the United States. This cycle however, offers exciting and different opportunities: among them is the possibility of a Bernie Sanders Presidency and the critical opportunity to expose millions of people, especially young people, to politics outside the realm of Neoliberalism.. Additionally, national and international political efforts must be connected to local organizing projects. Here, Emanuele has a front row seat to how these dynamics play out in the real world as he currently works with two organizations, Organized and United Residents of Michigan City (OURMC), a local Indiana community organizing body focused on single-issue and electoral campaigns, and political education, and a co-founder of Political Art Roots and Culture (PARC), a community-cultural center that provides space for organizers, artists, and everyday people who seek community, creativity, and political resistance. Vincent Emanuele is a writer, community organizer and former Marine Corps combat veteran. He has been working with leftwing political projects, electoral campaigns, and social movements since 2006. He is a former board member of Iraq Veterans Against the War and Veterans for Peace. Vince is a member of the National Writers Union, UAW local 1981. (program)
