2 meses 3 semanas ago
In his 2012 book Spillover, Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic, the science writer David Quammen predicted another Corona Virus outbreak. At the end of March 2020 the editor of Emergence Magazine, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee talked with Quammen who was sheltering in place in his Bozeman, Montana, home. Their conversation explored the ways in which viruses are embedded in the same systems of ecology and evolutionary biology that we humans are. As we disrupt wild ecosystems and shake these viruses free, and experience the consequences, COVID-19 offers an opportunity to reimagine our relationship with the natural world. Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee is a filmmaker, musician and executive editor of Emergence Magazine. David Quammen is an award winning science writer, explorer and author of four books of fiction and eight of non-fiction, including Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic; and The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life.

Sea Change Radio: Dave Brown: How We Shop For News, Segment 1

2 meses 3 semanas ago
Media critics have pointed out that news stations these days tend to have a political bent - gone are the days of “objective" journalism. At the same time, it must be acknowledged that MSNBC and Fox News differ greatly in their treatment of what is factual. This week’s guest on Sea Change Radio thinks it's all garbage. We are talking with Dave Brown, an attorney, podcast host and freelance sports columnist. We debate the merits of cable TV news, look at the impact it makes during a global health crisis, and speculate about what, if anything, can be done to remediate the bloviation.

Sunday Morning with Jim Mora: No evidence that Covid-19 is causing huge loss of life, Segment 1

2 meses 3 semanas ago
Professor Michael Levitt, a Nobel laureate and Stanford biophysicist, says there is no clear evidence that Covid-19 is causing massive loss of life, despite evidence to the contrary in places like Europe and New York City. In fact, Levitt, who is currently stuck in Israel, says it has not been a particularly bad year for flu deaths. And the people who are dying from coronavirus are those who are at risk of death anyway. Professor Levitt believes we're been 'primed for Covid-19 panic.'

2 meses 3 semanas ago
The Wonder of Boys & A Fine Young Man Boys do not have an easy time growing up and maturing in our complex world these days. The same standard of behavior is frequently expected of boys and girls, often without recognizing the special and different needs of boys. Testosterone is a prime mover in the shaping of boys behavior resulting in their special and different needs. This is a two-part program from the archives of Radio Curious with Michael Gurian, the author of a 1997 book entitled, The Wonder of Boys: What Parents, Mentors and Educators Can Do To Shape Boys Into Exceptional Men. I spoke with Michael Gurian in January of 1998 from his home in Spokane, Washington. Michael Gurian recommends Sex on the Brain, by Deborah Blum & Beyond the Birds and the Bees, Beverly Engle. Originally Broadcast: January 23, 1998 & January 30, 1998

Latin Waves : interviews Jorge Marti COVID19, Segment 1

2 meses 3 semanas ago
The current coronavirus pandemic is more than a medical crisis, it is also a political and ideological crisis. It is a crisis deeply rooted in years of neglect by neoliberal governments that denied the importance of public health and the public good while defunding the institutions and decades of austerity. Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Jorge Marti about government’s response to the coronavirus in Western countries, the impact of decades of austerity and neoliberalism policies on health institutions. This pandemic is a call for an end to all sanctions, causing needless death.

New World Notes: #633 -- Surveillance Capitalism (R), Segment 1

2 meses 3 semanas ago
Shoshana Zuboff--with Ralph Nader--discusses how Americans have lost their privacy, their freedom, and their personal autonomy. Digital technology is the MEANS of these losses. But the real CAUSE of the problem is "surveillance capitalism," which has taken control of our digital technology. And now it's not just social-media companies. For instance, Ford Motor Company has decided to have its automobiles record, analyze, and deliver for sale information on (literally) your every move. Intro, by KD

Radio Ecoshock Show: Anxiety and the Flight to Safe Living, Segment 1

2 meses 3 semanas ago
Margaret Klein Salamon is a clinical psychologist turned climate warrior. Five years ago Margaret claimed a climate emergency and called for mass mobilization. Now cities and countries all over the world have called for a climate emergency. She's written a book about how to overcome eco-anxiety. While all things Corona overwhelm our lives and the news, greenhouse gas emissions have not stopped, and climate change continues to drive more vicious events, including fire, floods, extreme storms, drought, and soon extreme heat in the N. Hemisphere. Forget what will happen by the year 2100 - new science shows large ocean systems will begin to die off during this decade, with land ecology collapsing a decade or two later. Dr. Alex Pigot joins from London to explain this major paper published in the journal Nature.
