Welcome to "The Radio Art Hour," a show where art is not just on the radio, but is the radio. "The Radio Art Hour" draws from the Wave Farm Broadcast Radio Art Archive, an online resource that aims to identify, coalesce, and celebrate historical and contemporary international radio artworks made by artists around the world, created specifically for terrestrial AM/FM broadcast, whether it be via commercial, public, community, or independent transmission.

Taylor Report: The need to resist U.S. hostage diplomacy, Segment 1

1 week ago
Alex Saab, Venezuelan diplomat, was extradited last week from Cape Verde, Africa, to the USA. The Cape Verde government, like the Trudeau government of Canada, obeyed the dictate of the USA to kidnap someone, in the case of Meng Wanzhou. These "long arm," extraterritorial actions by the USA are illegal. Saab was enroute to Iran to arrange food and fuel from the Islamic Republic, relief from the illegal, unilateral US sanctions on Venezuela. He was arrested while his plane was refueling. Taylor Report listeners are urged to take in the launch of the new book on Venezuela called "Extraordinary Threat," by Justin Podur and Joe Emersberger.

Sea Change Radio: Shamus Roller on Housing Justice, Segment 1

1 week 1 day ago
For the past year and a half, we've been watching the numbers: Covid cases, ER beds, deaths, and, more recently, immunization rates. There's another set of numbers, however, that has gotten less attention but is just as connected to this pandemic as any of these other figures: housing. The pandemic has been a huge test for our nation's ability to house its residents, and so far we are failing miserably - experts estimate that 40 million Americans are vulnerable to losing their housing. The federal moratorium on evictions was lifted by the Supreme Court in September, and the vast majority of states have no protections in place to help people hold on to their homes. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak with Shamus Roller, the Executive Director of the National Housing Law Project, about housing challenges, evictions, and homelessness. We also discuss potential solutions to advance housing justice.

TUC Radio: Fire and Forest Ecology in the American West - Chad Hanson and Monica Bond, Segment 2

1 week 1 day ago
On June 5, 2021, the wildlife biologist Dr. Monica Bond and fire ecologist Dr. Chad Hanson were speaking with an international audience at a webinar hosted by the Wild Earth Guardians. In a year of catastrophic fires, not just in the US, they discussed what to do - and maybe even more importantly what not to do - for these burned ecosystems to recover. Monica Bond,Ph.D., is a wildlife biologist and biodiversity advocate with The Wild Nature Institute. They conduct scientific research on endangered wildlife. Chad Hanson is cofounder of the John Muir Project of Earth Island Institute. His Ph.D. is in ecology with a research focus on fire ecology. His most recent book is: Smokescreen - Debunking Wildfire Myths to Save Our Forests and Our Climate. Hanson and Bond spoke to the WildEarth Guardians in June, 2021. With offices in seven (Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington)) western states the WildEarth Guardians are restoring wild places and rivers. Three months after this conversation, in September 2021, the John Muir Project and the Center of Sustainable Economy published a footnoted study with an urgent warning, they said: “Logging Provisions in Infrastructure & Budget Reconciliation Packages would worsen the Climate Crisis” Both the Infrastructure Bill and Budget Reconciliation contain over $2 billion in subsidies for logging coupled with a mandate to log 10 million acres over the next six years with another 20 million acres to follow, and the promotion of logging in naturally recovering fire areas. This at a time where we urgently need to protect forests to help sequester carbon emissions.
