TUC Radio: Anand Giridharadas in Conversation: On Wealth VS Democracy - Part ONE of TWO, Segment 2

1 month 2 weeks ago
There are very few writers who went on a book tour - expecting to be done in 3 months - and 2 years later are still in high demand by TV and radio talk shows, universities, high level think tanks, and festivals. Even the Cornona Virus did not slow him down and on May 19, 2020, Anand Giridharadas was interviewed, from his home, for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven, Connecticut. In his book, Giridharadas asked hard questions about corporate philanthropy: Why, for example, should our gravest problems be solved by the unelected upper crust instead of the public institutions that the rich erode by lobbying and dodging taxes? Elizabeth Nearing is the curator of ideas for the the International Festival of Arts & Ideas. The interviewer is John Dankosky.

Sea Change Radio: Barbara Freese: Industrial Strength Denial, Segment 1

1 month 2 weeks ago
The next time you hear the White House assert that up is down and down is up, consider what paved the way for this template of mendacity. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak with environmental attorney and author Barbara Freese about her new book, “Industrial Strength Denial.” Freese takes us on a historical tour of the havoc that big business has wreaked on the planet and on truth itself. We discuss the climate change denial movement and how it relates to the Trump Administration’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the pernicious legacy of leaded gasoline.

Taylor Report: Don't let "Five Eyes" block international co-operation, Segment 1

1 month 2 weeks ago
Phil asks if it is possible to bring the nations of the world together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Apparently not, as long as the "Five Eyes" back the USA in its attempt to slough off its responsibility to support the WHO. "Five Eyes" is "an anglophone intelligence alliance." [Wikipedia]. Canada and Australia were part of a US-backed effort to damage China and the WHO in two ways: 1) Trying to criticize China's handling of the pandemic, and 2) arguing for the representation of Taiwan at the WHO. The Canadian-Australian attempts flopped, because the rest of the WHA membership weren't interested in creating problems, but instead in finding common solutions in the COVID-19 crisis. The US has been regularly abrogating its international agreements and treaties. Trump's defunding of the WHO is part of a pattern of undermining multilateral organizations and international co-operation.

New World Notes: #638 -- Potpourri 8, Segment 1

1 month 2 weeks ago
A bouquet of this and that, not random but loosely structured. Features a fine talk by Mumia Abu-Jamal, two classic satires by The Firesign Theater, and commentary by KD. The commentary focuses on corruption of language as a tool of the powerful, the sea of propaganda in which we swim, the historical uses of potpourri, the sad similarities of 17th and (U.S.) 21st century responses to pandemics, and the meaning of "Ring Around the Rosie." And yes, the topics are all related.

1 month 2 weeks ago
Latin waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with author Yves Engler about the recent backlash against the film Planet of the Humans. "It should not be controversial to note that the corporate consumption juggernaut is destroying our ability to survive on this planet. From the agriculture industry raising animals to plastic manufacturers’ waste killing sea life to the auto industrial complex’s greenhouse gases, the examples of corporations wreaking ecological havoc are manifold" says Engler. The interview is about the political and personal co-creation of the world we live in, the struggles shaping our world and the inspiring struggles that brought us to this moment.
