The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #179/Global Warming Just Isn't Scary Enough, Segment 1

2 weeks 4 days ago
Sonic Café that’s Consumption, ZZ Top music from the La Futura album release, so what’ goin’ on? I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 179. This time the Sonic Café presents the real reason everyone can’t seem to get onboard and support the changes we need to make to battle this whole global warming thing… problem is, it’s just not scary enough. Comedian Bengt Washburn has all of the details, plus some great insights into how we can use a couple of ideas from the 1970s to turn this thing all around. Ahh Yeah. We’ve wrapped his thoughts in a music mix pulled from nearly 40 years. Listen for The Killers, Garbage, Maroon 5, the Talking Heads, Smashing Pumpkins and more. Oh and a big Sonic Café welcome to our latest sponsor. Listen for a word from Amu-nation. When the grid goes down and the dystopian future begins Amu-nation will have your back. All that and some more neat stuff too, as the Sonic Café brings you the problem with Global Warming, it just Isn’t Scary Enough from that little café on the coast, with a John Fogerty from Blue Moon Swamp… this is 110 Degrees In The Shade. We’re the Sonic Café.

Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another 11 months of episodes. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.

Radio Curious: Joan Jacobs Brumberg – An Intimate History of American Girls Part 2, Segment 1

2 weeks 5 days ago
The Body Project: An Intimate History of American Girls Advertising has had a major effect on how we view our bodies and on our individual self-image. The history of how this advertising has come to affect American girls as they pass through menarche and adolescence is presented in a book called “The Body Project: An Intimate History of American Girls.” This book describes the historical roots of acute societal and psychological pressures that girls feel today. It shows how the female adolescent experience has changed since 1895. The author, Joan Jacobs Brumberg, is a Professor of History and Women’s Studies at Cornell University in New York. In this two-part program, I spoke Professor Brumberg in October of 1997 and asked her what drew her to write “The Body Project.” Joan Jacobs Brumberg recommends “Learning to Bow,” by Bruce Feiler & “The Grass Link,” by May Vinchi. Originally Broadcast: October 14, 1997 & October 21, 1997
