Radio Curious: Niilo Koponen, Ph.D.- North to Alaska, Segment 1

3 months ago
People who crave space, freedom, adventure, and opportunities have long been attracted to Alaska. In June of 1996 I spoke with Niilo Kopanan, the son of Finnish immigrants who grew up in New York City and moved to a mountain ridge near Fairbanks, Alaska in 1952. At that time, land there was still open for homesteading. He located his 160 acres and filed a homestead on the ridge where he still lives. After several years there, in the mid 1950s, he returned to the lower 48 states to earn a Ph.D. Yet the magnet of Alaska pulled him back where he became a university professor and a member of the Alaska legislature, and he’s been there ever since. Niilo Koponen, Ph.D. recommends “The life story of Elizabeth Morgan” by Ernest Morgan. Originally Broadcast: June 18, 1996

TUC Radio: Helen Caldicott on Nuclear Fallout, Segment 2

3 months ago
In April 2019, the internationally known pediatrician and anti-nuclear campaigner Dr. Helen Caldicott gave an interview to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. She reviewed and added information to the 2018 book Fallout by Fred Pearce. Pearce recently travelled the world to visit the contaminated test sites, bomb making locations, nuclear power accident sites, and launch systems for nuclear weapons that are still on high alert. The concluding chapter of his book deals with the attempts at a cleanup of some of the longest lived and dangerous substances known to man. Adding to the ten minute podcast with Helen Caldicott, this program contains readings from the book on the system failures during the decommissioning of the British Sizewell power plant, and a detailed account of the highly contaminated Hanford Reservation in Washington State where the plutonium for the American nuclear weapons arsenal was produced. This largest environmental cleanup project in the US now costs $2.3 billion a year. Helen Caldicott is the author of many books, among them Sleepwalking to Armageddon; Nuclear Power is Not the Answer to Global Warming; and Nuclear Madness: What You Can Do. Fred Pearce has done international reporting on environmental science from 85 countries. He has written for the New Scientist, the Guardian newspaper and Yale University’s E360 web site. His many books include: The New Wild, When the Rivers Run Dry, The Coming Population Crash and the Land Grabbers.

Class War Battlefield Podcast: Episode 2019.02. Bernie or BUSTED, The Media State and Fixing our Political Future, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
I have listened intently to two audio compilations lately, the first is Friendly Fascism, the second Death throes of a Republic. Published in the late 1970s (technically 1980) the first is an unfiltered look into power’s structure and its protectionist undercurrent which might cause the nation’s Oligarchy to desire Fascism in place of true democratic expression; while the second, a serious spawned in the midst of a podcast, was published at this current decade’s onset, is a fascinating look at the waning years of the Roman Republic. Both contributed to my analysis, informing my thinking as I tried to understand what was happening to my beloved country during these debates. The resulting podcast episode looks suspiciously at the bloated democratic field of contenders, accusing the party of staging a slow coup to derail Bernie Sanders’ campaign, a campaign I ponder (in the last section of commentary) may be for nothing, as I am not completely convinced he wants to be president anymore. As always, be prepared for a very interesting ride and try not to get carried away with anger, when listening to Jimmy Dore’s marvelous exchange with Jordan Chariton (of Status Coup), though Mr. Chariton does most of the talking, the information provided is far too important to loose ones emotions over.
