Radio Curious: Manenima Hilario – Born into the Stone Age, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
A generally accepted theory about human migration tells us that people crossed the landmass that once connected Siberia to Alaska. Some of those people continued walking south and many generations later settled on the western edge of the Amazon Basin in South America in what is now eastern Peru. One of those groups is called Shapibo. Manenima Hilario, who is now 26 yeas old, was born Shapibo, into his tribe which lived in the Stone Age traditional fashion. At age 11, he went to secondary school in the Hispanic Amazon jungle town of Pucallpa. Later, from Lima, Peru he found his way to Taylor, Texas, and on to Sonoma State University, in Northern CA, where he graduated in June of 1997. Since that time he was enrolled at Stanford University to work on his Ph.D. Manenima Hilario recommends the biography of General Colin Powell. Originally Broadcast: January 22, 1997

This Week In Palestine: The long history of Black solidarity with Palestine and its opposition by supposed progressives, Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
"Cries for Intersectionality are at the center of organizing efforts for a host of social movements, the intersection of various liberation movements moving in solidarity against common oppressors. ... The movements for Black liberation and the movement for Palestinian liberation are front and center in this organizing effort. There is long history of these two movements allying together going all the way back to the civil rights era when SNCC publicly identified with the Palestinian liberation movement and subsequently lost almost all financial support from the Jewish community. ..." That was from an article written by Rod Such and originally published in the Electronic Intifada. Our feature presentation today is a talk given by Palestinian comedian and author Amer Zahr in the Palestine Center in Washington , DC. Amer Zahr has made quite a name for himself as a comedian who performs, literally, all over the planet. He is well known on US campuses, but also has performed in major theaters throughout the country including the Kennedy Center. In this presentation he also reads from his book “Being Palestinian Makes Me Smile.” (This edition is a reprise from last winter.)

Sea Change Radio: Doris Kearns Goodwin: Leadership In Turbulent Times, Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
What makes a great leader? This week on Sea Change Radio, we are honored to have Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin here to give us her take on that question. Goodwin’s book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, just released in paperback, re-examines four US presidents she has studied in the past: Abe Lincoln, Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. She discusses the contrast between these presidents’ leadership and the behavior of the current grifter-in-chief, puts today’s impeachment proceedings in historical context, and hypothesize about how past presidents might have addressed momentous issues like climate change and election tampering. Then, we dig into the Sea Change Radio archives and listen to Rebecca Vallas, a Vice President at the Center for American Progress, talk about the Trump administration’s absurd claims that poverty and hunger are now things of the past in this country.

TUC Radio: Helen Caldicott and Michael Madsen: Into Eternity TWO of TWO, Segment 2

1 week 4 days ago
This is the conclusion of a conversation between Helen Caldicott and Michael Madsen whose film, Into Eternity, premiered in the US in February 2011. Helen called Madsen "One of the more extraordinary people I've ever interviewed". This is a thought provoking exchange between the veteran campaigner, Helen Caldicott, who dedicated her life to alerting us to the nuclear danger, and the young Danish artist. He introduces thoughts about civilization, language, danger and eternity. Into Eternity is a documentary about the building of the world's first permanent repository for nuclear waste in Finland. It shows not only the construction under way that will take 140 years, but introduces the people involved, the scientists, regulators and corporate executives who oversee this project. None of them will be alive when Onkalo, as the repository is called, will be finished in 2120; and they must expect this repository to remain intact and untouched by future humans for at least 100,000 years. Such is the danger and longevity of waste from nuclear power plants.

Taylor Report: The very latest on Iraq, Syria, Segment 1

1 week 5 days ago
Phil interviews Zafar Bangash, editor of Crescent International, about Trump's dramatic announcement of a U.S. troop withdrawal from Syria. In addition, Phil questions Bangash about the street demonstrations and rioting in Iraq's capital, Baghdad. According to Bangash, observers in the streets of Baghdad report that snipers are firing on both police and demonstrators, in exactly the same manner as snipers did in 2011 in Daraa, Syria, at the beginning of the war, (and as they did in Ukraine's Maidan Square in 2014, we might add). The sniper's purpose is to escalate the conflict into a regime-change operation. A catalyst for these riots occurred when the Iraqi Prime Minister demoted a top Iraqi general who was being touted by the USA as a coup leader for Iraq. Zafar also describes an attack on the Iranian consulate in Basra. The purpose behind it was to foment sectarian violence between Sunni and Shi'a.
