Sea Change Radio: Home Is Where The Heart Is: Tiny Houses and Homelessness, Segment 1

3 weeks 2 days ago
Shelter is on the first rung of renowned psychologist Abraham Maslow‘s hierarchy of needs. And yet, as a society, we have not cracked the code for how to house people in a way that is equitable and sustainable. While millions consume cubic acres of carbon heating and cooling their McMansions, others combat housing insecurity on a daily basis. This week on Sea Change Radio, we discuss two different facets of the housing puzzle. First we take a look at the tiny homes movement with two builders, Fatih and Deniz Saat. They describe what the target customer base is for their Lilliputian locales, their design inspiration, and how these itty bitty domiciles could potentially transform communities of the future. Next, we hear from San Francisco Supervisor Rafael Mandelman to learn about his unique journey into politics and to talk about the issue of homelessness in America.

Radio Curious: Woodbine, Onaje Ph.D. — Black Gods of the Asphalt Part Two, Segment 1

3 weeks 2 days ago
The transcendent experience of street basketball is the topic of two conversations with Onaje X. O. Woodbine, author of “Black Gods of the Asphalt: Religion, Hip-Hop, and Street Basketball.” Woodbine grew up in the inner-city of Roxbury, Massachusetts, became a skilled street basketball player and attended Yale University on a basketball scholarship. After two years as a star player on the Yale team, he chose a different life path and quit. After graduating from Yale, Woodbine earned his Ph.D. in religious studies from Boston University. His book, “Black Gods of the Asphalt” presents a social-anthropological view of this inner-city sport where coaches often assume the role of father, mentor and friend. He contrasts the lessons learned on the street basketball courts, with those learned at the predominantly white basketball courts and locker rooms of Yale University. Onaje Woodbine visited with Radio Curious by phone on August 13, 2016, from his home in Andover, Massachusetts. In part one we discussed his experiences growing up and playing on the basketball courts in the inner city and how that differend from the Ivy League schools he later went to. In part two, we began our conversation when I asked him to explain the ethnographic research and methods he used in making his book, “Black Gods of the Asphalt.” The book Dr. Onaje Woodbine recommends is “Jesus and the Disinherited” by Howard Thurman.

Taylor Report: Rwandan-Belgians Insist On Their Rights, Resist Slander and Intimidation., Segment 1

3 weeks 2 days ago
The government of Rwanda insists on an official narrative about the events leading up to the 1994 fighting, and massacres of civilians. Any questioning or assertion of facts by unauthorized individuals or organizations draws the wrath of the RPF authorities. And the policy extends abroad, where Rwandans living in Europe find that speaking their truth can bring harassment and intimidation. Mr. Mbonyumutwa and others are challenging the bullies through the justice system and demanding respect for their rights.
