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

3 months 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

3 months 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

3 months 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."

Taylor Report: Jean Daniels, Austin Clarke, Leaders in Early Days of Anti-Apartheid Struggle., Segment 1

3 months ago
In the late 1950s there were several individuals who began to organize the regular, nearly segregationist, institutions of Toronto. We need to remember them and the price they paid. When Geore("segregation today, segregation, tomorrow, segregation forever") Wallace was permitted to speak at Maple Leaf Gardens, Daniels and Clarke led a contingent of picketers. Clarke was knocked to the ground by a Wallace deputy. Norman Richmond remembers these anti-racist fighters from our past.
