This week, we bring you the Question & Answer portion of an important talk by Sunsara Taylor, “Woke” Lunacy vs. Real Revolution, given May 24, at UCLA. The purpose of the program, taking on “woke” lunacy, and contrasting it to real revolution, was to radically and urgently change the alignment in society: to repolarize the way people are thinking and acting, in a way that is much more favorable to the revolution that humanity needs in order to get free.
The event focused on the indigenous peoples of Northern California and how a growing LandBack movement can protect former tribal land from mining, logging and climate change.
Corrina Gould is the co-founder and Co-Director of the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust. She is the Spokeswoman and Tribal Chair of the Confederated Villages of Lisjan, now known as the San Francisco Bay Area.
Five of the eight Ohlone Tribes lived on that land and their sacred sites are now buried under cement slabs and their rivers turned into toxic storm drains and their food trees were cut down. Today nobody even wonders why there is a city called Oak-land.
First an introduction to Corrina Gould’s work: Her November 20, 2022, talk entitled: Rethinking Thanksgiving: From Land Acknowledgement to LANDBACK
Four months later Corrina Gould was the invited speaker at the Land Back Symposium 2023, on the Indigenous Land Trusts panel. Here is her talk and response to questions

When you visit the World Wildlife Fund's list of critically endangered species, the first animals named are large, beloved mammals like the African Forest Elephant and the Eastern Lowland Gorilla. While these majestic creatures tug at our heartstrings, there are also a lot of smaller, more unsung organisms that are in grave risk of extinction, like the lowly freshwater mussel. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to environmental writer, John Platt, the editor of The Revelator to talk about some of the less glamorous animals that have recently been declared extinct or are on the brink of extinction. First, we take a deep dive into the plight of the ivory-billed woodpecker, a regal swamp-dwelling bird whose demise may or may not have been premature. Then we discuss why Hawaii is referred to by some naturalists as the extinction capital of the world, and look at the ethical quandaries presented by the emerging field of resurrection biology, also known as de-extinction.

Peter Kornbluth author of the Pinochet File: A Declassified Dossier on Atrocity and Accountability spoke at the Uri-Eichen Gallery where declassified documents that record the clandestine U.S. role in Chile and its support for the Fascist neoliberal Pinochet dictatorship are on display as part of a six month program of events and exhibits about the 50th Anniversary of the Coup in Chile. One of the documents exposes Pinochet's direct involvement in the assassination of former Chilean Ambassador to the United States Orlando Letelier and his aid Ronni Moffitt by car bomb in Washington D.C. That the CIA held onto the investigation of the crime allowed the Pinochet's reign of terror to continue across Latin America for a decade.

Excerpts from a keynote address to the US National Women's Studies Association, by the world-famous scholar of deconstructionism Gayatri Spivak. She takes as her theme the question from her best-known essay: Can the subaltern speak? The related question embedded in the talk is: if she speaks, can she be properly understood, when the listeners superimpose their own context, language, and expectations on the messages of those they see as lowly. Global feminism is unfolding in a context of aggressive financialization of the whole world; to have any balance requires the agents of development learning to listen.
This time on The Children's Hour we get onboard and learn about trains. The Kids Crew went on a field trip to The Wheels Museum of Albuquerque, and discovered the rich history of railroads.
Several kids on our Kids Crew went to the WHEELS Museum of Albuquerque to learn more about trains and transportation. Genevieve, Cade, Corbit, Kodiak, Max, Thorfin, and Gareth spoke with WHEELS volunteers about their work, what the museum does, and how trains came to be our main form of transportation of goods in the world.
Train technology is much older than we expected. The original tracks were made of wood, and were built in Germany in the 1500's to help horse drawn carriages navigate dirt roads. Those same tracks have become the foundation for express trains today which can go over 200 miles per hour!
But the fastest trains in the world are in China, and can go over 260 miles per hour. The United States has not yet invested in high speed rail systems. It's about time, don't you agree?
Katie Stone is The Children's Hour Executive Producer, our Senior Producer is Christina Stella. Eli Henley produced our Kids Crew segments recorded at the Wheels Museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Children's Hour is produced at the solar powered Sunspot Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Many thanks to the parents who chaperoned, and Leba at Wheels Museum for the excellent adventure in field recording had by our Kids Crew.

Today we feature a conversation with Palestinian physician, author, journalist, and activist Ghada Karmi. Karmi speaks with the Electronic Intifada’s Nora Barrows Friedman and Asa Winstanley. Her seminal book, Searching for Fatima, is a classic memoir of her own family’s expulsion from their home in Palestine during the Nakba. But first, we take note of yet another insulting slap in the face by Israel supporter Joe Biden. At the recent nationally televised White House Correspondents' Dinner, Biden paid tribute to several foreign journalists who were killed this past year while doing their job, yet did not even mention Shireen Abu Akhleh, US citizen and longtime journalist killed by Israel while on duty, wearing a jacket prominently labeled PRESS. This is another example of the US ignoring Israeli crimes and thereby supporting them.
This week on Backbeat you can use your Big Feet to do the Tennessee Waltz by the San Francisco Bay courtesy of Charlie Bop, The Louvin Brothers and Po' Boy Jeffreys & Calamity Jane.

Why are we heading hell-bent into a world that nobody wants? Social philosopher Daniel Schmachtenberger has the best explanation. He warns adding Artificial Intelligence to the unsustainable system we have will speed the decline toward disaster for humanity. Daniel talks with UK science communicator, television presenter and former professional poker player Olivia Liv Boeree. Then we talk wildfires and climate change with Canadian fire expert Michael Flannigan. This is a new interview. Mike Flannigan explains why burning the great north Boreal forests could change world climate for all of us.
