The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #157/A Place Where The Music Really Matters, Segment 1

3 days 14 hours ago
Sonic Café. That’s the phenomenal bari sax man Ronnie Cuber with a tune pulled from Cuber Libre, his very first album from 1976. Wow eleven minutes of the program is already gone and we’ve only played one song… and ahh that’s kinda the point. Hey welcome, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 157. This time the Sonic Café makes room for all those long songs we just can’t seem to squeeze into most shows… because, at the end of the day, it’s really all about the music. Listen for more great jazz from Miles Davis and Charles Lloyd… plus great progressive music from Humble Pie, one of the original super groups… and of course more… from that little café on the coast that brings you a weekly dose of intelligent, eclectic music from the breathtaking Pacific Northwest… a place where the music really matters. We’re the Sonic Café.

Taylor Report: Blanchet of the Bloc Quebecois: Leadership means not bowing to United States, Segment 1

5 days 6 hours ago
Robin Philpot appears on the Taylor Report to discuss the comments by Yves-François Blanchet, leader of the Bloc Québécois, that the Trudeau government was wrong to arrest Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou at the bidding of the Trump Administration. "When you’re facing a powerful foe like China," argued Blanchet, "you don’t try to show biceps if you have only tiny biceps.” Blanchet repeated the point at both the English and French Leaders' Debates and elsewhere. But the media seems to have completely ignored the remark. Blanchet deliberately made the remark because of how Canadian farmers, and especially farmers in Quebec, were affected. The Bloc is leading in Quebec ridings among Francophone voters because Blanchet's remarks have resonated with them.

Sea Change Radio: Amazon Update With Christian Poirier, Segment 1

5 days 11 hours ago
Over the past fifty years, around 17% of the Amazon rainforest has been destroyed, according to the World Wildlife Fund, but as this week’s guest on Sea Change Radio explains, with fires and deforestation out of control, the situation could get even worse before we see any significant improvement. We speak to Christian Poirier of Amazon Watch to get a clearer picture of this largely man-made disaster in Brazil. While some steps to control the fires have been made recently by the Brazilian government, rampant deforestation continues unabated. Poirier gives us a closer glimpse into the agribusiness giants that are involved in the devastation, what his organization is doing to help stop it, and tells listeners what they can do to get involved in the struggle. Then, we take a peek into the Sea Change Radio archives and hear Kevin Walker talk about what he calls our grand food bargain.

TUC Radio: Extinction Rebellion - How to Repair Democracy, Segment 2

5 days 13 hours ago
The Extinction Rebellion movement that started in the UK in late 2018 and spread across the world has brought attention to the problem of climate change in a way that has only been achieved by the school strike movement. XR's huge outdoor assemblies and performances, road and bridge closures, their acts of non-violent civil resistance and disobedience and willingness to be arrested are meant to compel governments to finally act to end the use of fossil fuel by 2025 to prevent the collapse of the world's ecosystems. Among their top three demand is for governments to tell the truth and to set up Citizens' Assemblies that are chosen at random to represent the population in class, gender and race. The assemblies address a specific task, interview experts and scientist, deliberate and vote on what action to take. Even though the idea of citizens' assemblies goes back to Athenian democracy they have come into use again across the world. The most famous modern day citizen's assembly was set up in Ireland in 2016 and debated the issue of abortion. The Irish constitution had criminalized abortion - but the deliberations of the Citizens' assembly led to a referendum and the repeal of the abortion ban. Linda Doyle of Extinction Rebellion, UK, explains the details. A video of her presentation can be found on Youtube and printed material, the XR guide to citizens assemblies and the Citizens Assembly manual are on the web site of Extinction Rebellion
