Sea Change Radio: Doris Kearns Goodwin: Leadership In Turbulent Times (re-broadcast), Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
What makes a great leader? This week on Sea Change Radio, we are honored to have Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin here to give us her take on that question. Goodwin’s book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, just released in paperback, re-examines four US presidents she has studied in the past: Abe Lincoln, Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. She discusses the contrast between these presidents’ leadership and the behavior of the current grifter-in-chief, puts today’s impeachment proceedings in historical context, and hypothesize about how past presidents might have addressed momentous issues like climate change and election tampering. Then, we dig into the Sea Change Radio archives and listen to Rebecca Vallas, a Vice President at the Center for American Progress, talk about the Trump administration’s absurd claims that poverty and hunger are now things of the past in this country.

TUC Radio: Anand Giridharadas: Should Billionaires Exist?, Segment 2

2 weeks 1 day ago
Are billionaires such as Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates the American Dream personified? Do they reflect a healthy economy? Or, as Senator Bernie Sanders has said, should billionaires not exist in the first place? Anand Giridharadas, Time magazine editor-at-large and author of "Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World," discusses why he agrees with Sanders. This program is compiled from three excerpts: On Dec 9, 2019, Anand Giridharadas was Steve Paikin’s guest on The Agenda, TV Ontario’s renowned current affairs program. Two months earlier, on Oct 8, 2019, Anand Giridharadas had been the guest on The Daily Show. The host, Trevor Noah, got into a fiery exchange with Giridharadas about his best selling book: “Winners Take All” and the Paradox of Elite Philanthropy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H32z45o0WxA&pbjreload=10 The last segment is from: A Nation Brought to You by Billionaires from Anand Giridharadas’ YouTube channel On Dec. 17, 2018 Anand Giridharadas took the stage at In Your Face in New York City to present a list of corporate sponsors. And Giridharadas made it very clear that the sponsors he is thanking are not those of the show but those of all of America: “Because what was supposed to be a republic by, for, and of the people is increasingly a nation brought to you by billionaires. And when billionaires are in charge of our schools, our politics, our arts, our news, and our public conversation, it’s important to keep them happy by thanking them for ruling us.” Anand Giridharadas’ acclaimed book: Winners Take All, The Elite Charade of Changing the World offers a painstakingly researched analysis of a global elite who claim to be in the business of ‘changing the world’ while all the while preserving a status quo that favors their interests and obscures their role in causing the problems they later seek to solve.

2 weeks 2 days ago
Tonight, as we near the 61st anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, which burst forth upon the world on January 1 1959, Back in the USSR pays tribute to the men and women who made the first socialist revolution in the Western Hemisphere possible. These brave comrades of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, from Haydee Santamaria to Vilma Espin to Harry "Pombo" Villegas, were the people who would fundamentally challenge the legacy of colonialism, slavery, and patriarchy in Cuba. In doing so they were forced to confront capitalism and empire head-on, leading to the rise of a new country that has been a beacon of hope to those struggling for liberation all over the world ever since. This is our final episode of 2019, happy new year comrades and friends!

This Week In Palestine: Criminalizing Dissent: UMassAmherst Autumn Conference (part 2), Segment 1

2 weeks 2 days ago
On November 12, 2019, Umass Amherst held its second blockbuster pro-Palestinian conference of the year taking on the Zionists lobby’s attempt to censor speech on American campuses. Last week we heard UMass Professor Sut Jhally, organizer of the event, followed by Linda Sarsour, moderator, and Omar Barghouty, co-founder of the BDS campaign. A capacity crowd was present, despite condemnation by university officials and right-wing pro-Israel pressure groups. The panel addressed mounting efforts by U.S. political leaders, right-wing lobbying groups, and college and university administrators to silence pro-Palestinian speech on American campuses and to criminalize support for BDS. This is the 2nd part, taking on the Zionist lobby’s attempt to censor speech on American campuses. This week we hear Tim Wise, Cornel West, and Dimi Khalidi, all introduced by Linda Sarsour.

This week’s special “news-light” imaginary election pits the first legitimate openly gay major party candidate for the U.S. presidency against the narcissistic, incompetent incumbent – in their own words – mixed with pop songs, late night TV show hosts humor, on-scene news coverage and more … and could be called “Trump vs. Buttigieg: The Musical!” [NewsWrap returns next week.]

New World Notes: #617 -- The Matrix: A Further Exploration, Part 3, Segment 1

2 weeks 2 days ago
As people began seeing the elites' propaganda for what it is, new systems of social control were put into place. These included militarization of the police, new non-lethal weapons, a "prison-industrial complex," neutralizing the Bill of Rights, and CIA-supplied narcotics in the inner cities. This is Part 3 of an audio tapestry woven by Robin Upton from Unwelcome Guests' archival material. It's a fine exploration of how the forces that run the world *actually* operate in practice.
