After reflecting on both the outcome of the recent U.S. elections and Israel’s latest bombardment of Gaza — and after getting immolated in a Predator drone strike — we interview Shawna Potter of Baltimore hardcore band War on Women (and founder of her local chapter of Hollaback!) about music, feminism, activism, street harassment and more.
Make yourself a sandwich and listen in while we examine the Stanford organic food study and media illiteracy; get a report from Chris on Propagandhi’s north-eastern tour; discuss Ralph Nader’s new book The Seventeen Solutions; tell you definitively how you should (and will) vote in the 2012 U.S. presidential election; look at the nefarious legal and PR forces behind the NHL lockout; and review some of your feedback from previous episodes.
Join us as we dissect the controversy around Chris Hedges’ “Cancer in Occupy” article and the Occupy Tactics debate; discuss the excellent documentary If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front; and talk to author and journalist Will Potter about his book Green is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege.
This month we review your feedback on episode one; solve once and for all the issue of mass shootings and gun violence in one 15 minute discussion; hear the latest news from local four-piece band Propagandhi; and talk to environmental activist and Sea Shepherd crew member Dave Nickarz about his experiences interfering with the capture and slaughter of whales and seals in Canada, the Antarctic and beyond.
In this, our inaugural episode, we discuss and preview Propagandhi’s forthcoming album “Failed States”; gawk with jaws slack at the unmitigated gall of the executives at Enbridge; pontificate on the possibility that the earth has entered a period of rapid state change that could transform the lives of the next generation into an unrecognizable shit-show; lapse into a spontaneous book-club segment; and for the main event, bring you an interview with hip-hop artist and broadcast journalist Wab Kinew.
