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

1 month 3 weeks 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, and began part one by describing his relationship with his father, Dr. Robert Woodbine.  In part two he discusses 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.

TUC Radio: Kevin Anderson - A Rule Book for the Climate Casino, Segment 2

1 month 3 weeks ago
Even though climate scientist Kevin Anderson has given up flying he attended, via train and ferry, most of the annual COPs, the Conferences of the Parties. They are held under the auspices of the United Nations Framework on Climate Change. And, as Deputy Director of the Tyndall Center for Climate Change Research in the UK, he contributes to the science. Kevin Anderson says that we have known since 1990 about the need to end fossil fuel use. However now, 28 years later, emissions of greenhouse gases are still going up and are now a staggering 65% higher than in 1990. The economists Thomas Piketty (in "Carbon and Inequality") found that only 10% of world population are responsible for 30% of CO2 emissions. If these 10% were to adopt the life style of the average European while the other 90% were to make no changes a huge step towards climate stabilization would be made. Kevin Anderson also points to the economics of growth that are preventing the phase out of fossil fuels, and critiques out techno-fixes and can even contaminate efforts such as green development initiatives as long as they also promise Growth. The conversation with Kevin Anderson was recorded at the December 2018 COP in Katowice, Poland, in the Scientists' Warning program, hosted by Stuart Scott and Victoria Hurth.

Sea Change Radio: Strange Brew: Atomo Bean-less Coffee, Segment 1

1 month 3 weeks ago
Many people around the world wouldn't dream of starting their day without their coffee ritual. And they tend to be pretty particular about it -- what to buy, where to buy it, how to make it and when to drink it. But how much thought do they put into the coffee bean itself? The global popularity of coffee contributes to deforestation and erosion, and consumes enormous quantities of water -- some estimate that a standard cup of coffee eats up about 34 gallons of our planet's most vital resource. Furthermore, climate scientists are predicting that as the earth's temperature rises, coffee may become an untenable crop. But this week’s guests on Sea Change Radio want us to be able to keep our coffee rituals while at the same time radically revolutionizing the beverage. We talk with the co-founders of Atomo Coffee, Andy Kleitsch and Jarret Stopforth, about their quest to build the perfect cup of bean-less joe. That's right, they have created a lab-grown java-alternative with none of the environmental impact and all of the punch. We discuss some of the problems plaguing the traditional coffee industry, their process for creating coffee from scratch, and the challenges they face in getting their business brewing.

Taylor Report: Dan Kovalik: U.S. pushing new Monroe Doctrine for Venezuela, Haiti, Segment 1

1 month 3 weeks ago
Phil interviews Dan Kovalik about his Canadian tour, and his new book, "The (U.S.) Plot to Control the World." Dan is focusing on Venezuela during his speaking tour. He discusses what the U.S. is up to, and how the Lima Group is undermining South American institutions. As in Haiti, the U.S. wants to lock Venezuela into its own contracts and arrangements, without regard to what locals want. CUPE in Canada is speaking up against the interference in Venezuela. As unions come to realize that the exploitation of people abroad also hurts U.S./Canadian workers, some are defending progressive governments from attack. Unfortunately, there is a political-party consensus in the U.S. and Canada that Trump and Bolton can do whatever they want to Latin America. But Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans are resisting. We should too.

The Alembic Files: Your Life is Their Toy - Part 23, Segment 1

1 month 3 weeks ago
Health and life are man's most precious possessions; and anxiety to preserve them is natural. It is not surprising, therefore, that they have been exploited since time immemorial. Every age has had its charlatans, quacks and medicine men. Much in the same measure as social organization has attained its highest pitch in the present era, the exploitation of health and life today has reached its zenith. Never before in history has there arisen such an extensive conspiracy about the problem of public health of entire nations, involving well-organized, opposing political and commercial groups. The consequence of this welter of exploitation is the sacrifice of human comfort, happiness, health and life. --Emanuel Josephson, 1941, "Your Life is Their Toy."
