The Alembic Files: The Ominous Parallels - 7, Segment 1

2 weeks ago
The axioms about the value of education in propagandizing a nation’s youth are well known, and during the Weimar years in Germany, the focus on the minds of school-aged children was never more trenchant. Then, and to a great degree now in the U.S., education has been about training and raising good lumpens dedicated only to The State. George Carlin once said that the real owners of this country--not the politicians--didn't want "a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They want obedient workers." This segment looks at how the mass manipulation of the youth happened in pre-World War II Germany.

The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #131/Jazz Club: Not Your Grandfather's Big Band Show, Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
Yeah man, welcome to the jazz club here in the basement at the Sonic Café. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 131. This time the Sonic Café steps into the controversial world of jazz, as we present a program of powerful big band jazz. Yep big band jazz, but this is not your great, great grandfathers big band music. Nope not at all, our mix is pulled from the last 27 years. Listen for modern big band tracks from the Gordon Goodwin big phat band, gawd I love that name, also Ted Nash, McCoy Tyner, Ed Palermo, Phil Collins, Qunicy Jones and of course more. Jazz, it’s called America’s classical music. And it sure seems to be polarizing. People either love it, or hate it. Listen as the Sonic Café presents comedian Paul F. Tompkins, a guy who is most definitely in the jazz hater camp. All that and more as we welcome you to the jazz club, here in the basement at that little café on the coast, where we’ve waived our two drink minimum, tonight only for our Big Band extravaganza… we’re the Sonic Café.

Radio Curious: Pete Seeger – Thoughts from a Troubadour: An Interview with Pete Seeger, Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
This archive edition of Radio Curious was originally recorded and broadcast in January of 1992 when Radio Curious was called “Government, Politics and Ideas.” Our guest is Pete Seeger, a folk musician and a very special person in the lives of many people around the world. He brings songs of hope, peace, justice and equality wherever he goes. He was an inspiration to me when I first learned to play the 5-string banjo and when I took lessons from him, in what seems both long and ago and, just yesterday. We began our conversation when I asked him what he meant when he said “the world is in a state of uncertainty Originally Broadcast: January 20, 1992

Taylor Report: Tulsi Gabbard Challenges America's Regime Change Wars, Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
Investigative journalist Rick Sterling explains why Tulsi Gabbard appeals to him. First, Gabbard has years of military experience, and has come to oppose "regime change" operations. Her experience gives her a more realistic perspective as compared with most Beltway decision makers. Second, she is against corporate military profiteering. Third, she is tough, and could hold her own against the Democratic establishment. As a veteran, she cannot be shamed into silence when discussing military affairs. What about Bernie? Well, Tulsi has always been more specific about what she will do with regard to reducing military deployments. She has centered foreign policy as a key campaign issue. Gabbard has lobbied on behalf of maintaining existing arms limitation treaties, as she understands the consequences if they are discarded. The xenophobia and supremacism embraced in the United States by both parties needs to be challenged. As Tulsi says, "We must change our foreign policy" and work towards relations of co-operation, not coercion.

Sea Change Radio: From Sea to Shining Sea: Jeff Boehm and David Abel, Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
Oceans cover about 70% of our planet, and represent over 95% of all of the earth’s water. The human impact on the ocean includes temperature rise, coral bleaching, ocean acidification, and changing chemical composition of the water – all of these things, of course, have an effect on the organisms that live in these vast ecosystems. This week on Sea Change Radio, we take a look back into the archives. First, we revisit our discussion with Jeff Boehm, the Executive Director of the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA as he talks about the work his organization does to protect seals up and down the Pacific coast. Then, we speak with Boston Globe reporter David Abel about the surprising resurgence of Atlantic cod.
