Alice Rothchild is doctor, writer, filmmaker and activist who has spent decades in key social justice movements. She is the author of three books, Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resilience was released in 2007, On the Brink: Israel and Palestine on the Eve of the 2014 Gaza Invasion, came in 2014, and Condition Critical: Life and Death in Israel/Palestine, was published in 2017. This year Cune Press will publish her first young adult novel, Finding Melody Sullivan. It is the story of a half-Jewish, half-Catholic, 16-year-old girl told against the backdrop of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Phil Weiss spoke with Alice recently about the book and her experiences writing it.
Yara Asi speaks with the Foundation for Middle East Peace's Sarah Anne Minkin about how to understand Palestinians' access, if any, to public health resources. As Minkin details, Israeli policy is essentially to cruelly reduce or eliminate any such access just as much as possible.
The so-called Palestinian Authority is no help, by design.
Thus, when a Palestinian or his/her child needs a doctor's or hospital's attention immediately, he/she is put through a sadistic wild goose chase from checkpoint to checkpoint to checkpoint. Some make it, some don't.
What are possibilities and priorities, if any, for change? Essentially, none. That's what Israel calls public health -- for Palestinians.
In 1971, the young defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg had taken on the Nixon administration, risking his career and freedom to leak the Pentagon Papers. He showed the world that the U.S. government had lied repeatedly about beginning and winning the war on Vietnam.
Now, over 40 years later, Ellsberg is sharing the research from his most ambitious project yet, The Doomsday Machine — a stunning insider’s tale of the American nuclear procedures.
Ellsberg was a nuclear war planner during the 1950s and '60s. In The Doomsday Machine Ellsberg offers an expose about "the nuclear war planners, of which I was one, who have written plans to kill billions of people," calling it "a conspiracy to commit omnicide, the death of everyone." Ellsberg asks us, "Can humanity survive the nuclear era? We don't know. I choose to act as if we have a chance."
For decades he has put himself on the line to oppose those plans: writing, speaking, standing up, and sitting-in against the threat of nuclear annihilation. Ellsberg has been hauled off to jail for civil disobedience against war over 80 times.
On Dec 13, 2017, Daniel Ellsberg was on stage at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. He had an engaging conversation with the Club’s President, Dr. Gloria Duffy. She and Ellsberg share a similar background. She worked as a resident consultant at the Rand Corporation in Santa Monica, where Ellsberg had been 6 years earlier. She then was Communications Director at the Arms Control Association in Washington, D.C..
This broadcast is part of a celebration of the work and life of Daniel Ellsberg. He recently disclosed that he has pancreatic cancer and has only three to six months to live. He remains active in his anti-nuclear work and wrote that his editor knows that he works better under a deadline. And Ellsberg adds Quote: It turns out that I also live better under a deadline!

Back in the 16th century, when England began to run out of trees, it started burning coal. And by 1700, most Brits were using coal as their main source of fuel. But then coal became scarce. To come full circle, today England is burning large amounts of wood again – much of it in the form of wood pellets from the US. Wood has somehow been designated as a renewable energy source since the Kyoto Protocol in 1992 and the repercussions have been devastating. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to journalist Justin Catanoso, a journalism professor at Wake Forest University, about the dangers of this latest transition to a fuel source which is leading to deforestation and pollution. We learn about the wood pellet industry, manufacturing giant Enviva, and the wide-ranging problems caused by burning trees.
Chief Nkosi Mandela, grandson of Nelson Mandela, speaks of the long solidarity between the people of South Africa and their Freedom movement, the ANC, and that of the Palestinians in their struggle to regain their human rights, dignity and land from the Zionist apartheid settler colony Israel. He recounts how the ANC's nonviolent campaign against apartheid was answered by the South African State with violence and repression which they then responded to with armed resistance and the call for an International campaign to Boycott, Divest and Sanction as the Palestinians are today. He speaks of the diversity and range of support that the ANC received from people and countries around the world, the Palestinians being significant in that they too were engaged in a freedom struggle against a racist western settler colonial government that was imposed on them by European Imperialist powers. He pays tribute to the Cuban people for the sacrifices they made that enabled the defeat of military forces supported by the United States, Great Britian, Israel and other colonial powers that sought the defeat of the ANC at the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale in Angola. That defeat lead to the negotiations that resulted in the end of Apartheid South Africa. He then points to the hypocrisy of people and governments who now fawn over his grandfather's memory as Freedom Fighter, President of South Africa, and Nobel Prize recipient but previously labeled him a terrorist, a label he would proudly ware in supporting a similar goal of freeing people from a murderous, white supremacist colonial State. He then addresses the audience on "what is to be done?" and what he learned from his grandfather.

Murphy Hicks Henry is well known in the bluegrass community for her banjo playing, her Murphy Method by-ear teaching videos, her book Pretty Good for a Girl: Women in Bluegrass (University of Illinois Press), her long-running General Store column in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine and, in earlier years, her lively performing with the band Red and Murphy & Co.
It was while playing with Red and Murphy & Co. that Murphy honed her considerable skills as a songwriter.
Recently, for her 70th birthday, her son Christopher totally surprised her by masterminding and producing When My Momma Sang to Me: Songs of Murphy Hicks Henry, a CD which features over 30 well-known women in bluegrass playing and singing 23 of Murphy’s original compositions. The project includes early songs like “Riding Around on Saturday Night” and “Grandmother’s Song” as well as later songs like “All of Us Used To Be Skinny” and “Save Me A Square On The Floor.” In between are solid favorites like “Fried Chicken,” “M and M Blues,” and “I Ain’t Domesticated Yet.”
Helping out on this project (and keeping totally mum!) were Rhonda Vincent, Alice Gerrard, AJ Lee, Kristin Scott Benson, Gina Furtado, Cathy Fink, Marcie Marxer, Laura Orshaw, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, the Price Sisters, daughter Casey Henry, and a host of other women including Murphy’s sisters.
This time on The Children's Hour we learn how everyone can contribute to active scientific research by participating in Community Science with groups like BEMP: the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program.
The Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program or BEMP, studies the riparian forest along the Rio Grande in New Mexico as it travels from Colorados Rocky Mountains, down to the Gulf of Mexico in El Paso, Texas. Students in BEMP work with the program as part of their school science curriculum, taking multiple field trips to the bosque to collect data, from counting insects, to measuring leaf litter.
When the kids collect their data, they are participating in community science. In order for scientists to understand as much as possible about our climate, soil health, endangered species, weather, and so much more, they need to get as much information as possible. Members of every community are needed to collect certain kinds of data from wherever they may live. BEMP helps teachers make that effort part of a day at school.
More than 100,000 New Mexican students have worked directly with BEMP, as of fall 2022.

2023 The Children's Hour Inc.
Audio from an April 2023 rally in New York City with homecare workers and their supporters protesting 24-hour shifts paid for only 13 hours, sometimes for days in a row. City Council (now majority women and minority) promised to end this abuse and didn't. They are also getting screwed on a promised wage increase by the state. Speakers in various languages, with translation, include workers, organizers, feminists, former officials, and a tech worker with a similar problem.

Early Spring wildfires cover parts of North America with smoke. Record temperatures roast the Pacific Northwest, again. India and Thailand went into their ninth straight week of unbearable heat, into the mid-40s Celsius, well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Thats how it was last week during this decade of climate shift. This week you will hear 3 of my best interviews on wildfires. But first I want to explain why I almost gave up.
