TUC Radio: The Soul of Soil - John Jeavons, Segment 2

8 hours ago
This is part of a TUC Radio mini series on Soil, a response to the devastating forest fires in California in 2018. John Jeavons is a master farmer, educator, researcher, author and Director of the non‐profit Ecology Action. He has spent the last 43 years developing and teaching a way of farming and gardening that is free from fossil fuel chemicals; and instead of depleting the soils to grow food is actually enhancing and building the soil. When I first met him at KPFA radio in Berkeley 30 years ago he made the organic farmers uncomfortable by suggesting that they were still not sustainable as long as they imported huge quantities of compost from somewhere else. John Jeavons gave me permission to read his essay Soul of Soil for you. However I want to start by giving you a sense of his voice and presence by letting you hear the opening minutes of his keynote at the 2015 annual Moses Organic Farming Conference in Wisconsin on the banks of the Mississippi River.

Radio Curious: Osborn, John Jay:  A Marriage as a Separate Entity, Segment 1

10 hours 46 minutes ago
“Listen to the Marriage” is a novel by John Jay Osborn, a retired lawyer and law professor. The story centers a marriage counselor and a recently separated couple with demanding jobs and two small children.  All thirty-one short chapters take place in the therapist’s office and reveal the angst, anger, and hidden love that the couple Gretchen and Steve, have for each other. Sandy, the therapist guides the sessions, while keeping her thoughts about her clients to herself.  An empty green chair representing their marriage sits between Gretchen and Steve during each visit. “Listen to the Marriage” is Osborn’s sixth novel, the first one being “The Paper Chase,” published in 1971, a year after he graduated law school.  “Listen to the Marriage” is based in part on the experience Osborn and his wife had with a marriage counselor beginning about ten months after they separated in the mid 1980s.  They remain happily married. John Osborn visited the Radio Curious studios by phone from his home in San Francisco, California, on December 14, 2018. We began our conversation with his description of the therapist’s goal: To get the couple to look at the marriage they created as being separate from themselves.  The book John Jay Osborn recommends is “Happy All the Time,” by Laurie Colwin. The program was recorded on December 14, 2018.

Sea Change Radio: PurpleAir Founder Adrian Dybwad, Segment 1

13 hours 35 minutes ago
Northern California’s now infamous Camp Fire was not only the largest, longest, and deadliest wildfire in the state’s history, it also produced record amounts of smoke. Schools closed, there was a run on protective masks, and people were fashioning do-it-yourself air purifiers because there were none left in stores. And it looks like we will only see an acceleration of wildfires in the future. This grim forecast has brought a surge in traffic to websites that monitor air quality like AirNow, Weather Underground, and PurpleAir. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak with the founder and CEO of PurpleAir, a company that sells laser air quality sensors for home use at a reasonable price, and posts all the results in real-time on its site. We discuss PurpleAir’s business model, its unique brand of crowd-sourcing technology, and examine the ways that it casts the world in a different, and sometimes frightening, light.

The Taxcast: The Taxcast: December 2018, Segment 1

18 hours 1 minute ago
In edition 84 of the December 2018 Tax Justice Network’s monthly podcast/radio show, the Taxcast: time’s running out to tackle the climate crisis facing us all. We look at environmental taxes and making them fair, speaking to the authors of new report A Climate of Fairness: Environmental Taxation and Tax Justice in Developing Countries Plus: we discuss the gilets jaunes in France, a movement that’s been widely reported as being anti-green taxes, but is in fact born from wider desperation for their ‘let them eat cake’ President Macron to reverse a series of policies that have worsened inequality in the country. We give Monsieur le President a lesson in how not to implement an environmental tax…

The Alembic Files: Cato, Letter No. 1, Segment 1

1 day 1 hour ago
In school we heard so much of the Federalist Papers. What of the Anti-Federalists, who were far more prolific - and prescient? Eric reads from the book "The Anti-Federalists," edited by Bruce Frohnen, and forwarded by Joseph Sobran. Cato, believed by many to be New York Governor George Clinton, a prominent Anti-Federalist, wrote letters that appeared in the New York Journal in late 1787 through early 1788. His pseudonym was borrowed from Marcus Portius Cato, a Roman statesman, speaker, and defender of the Roman Republic. Cato's letters, although not considered by historians to be the most eloquently argued or logically presented Anti-Federalist missives, capture well the sentiments of those warning against the new Constitution. Cato warns that that same Constitution will allow avarice to grow unchecked; that it will provide unbridled opportunities for the moneyed elites to deceive and subjugate the people. Cato avers that the gritty, painful struggle to loosen Britain's hold on the Colonies was very costly and should be prized. In his brief Letter No. 1, Cato urges his fellow citizens to keep fresh their memories of their bloody conflict. He implores them to not hurry their decisions regarding a new government. He asks them: Will they act cautiously and ensure a safe and secure future for themselves?
