Short Description: 
Daryl Davis, Klan-destine Relationships
Host Jimmy Tardy talks with Daryl Davis, world-class musician and owner of a closet full of Klan hoods and robes that were bequeathed to Daryl when their previous owners decided to renounce the Klan. Some of those previous owners include the former Imperial Wizard of the KKK (that's the national leader of the Klan for the rest of us...)
Daryl is an African-American man who grew up in Chicago and around the world as an, "emabssy brat" (his words). When he returned to the States, Daryl began to see racism all around him, and found himself the target of racist threats and violence. Instead of becoming afraid and turning away, Daryl decided to ask some Klan members, in person, "how can you hate me when you don't even know me?"

Dr. Vern Saboe on the Rights of Injured Workers under Oregon Law

Dr. Vern Saboe on the Rights of Injured Workers under Oregon Law
Health and Health Care Forum

Dr. Vern Saboe talks with host host Roberta Hall about injured workers' rights, specifically, the right under Oregon law to choose what treatment provider s/he sees after an injury on the job. In some cases, injured workers do not know their rights and are sent directly to a clinic of the employer’s choosing. We discuss a proposed legislative remedy and how this remedy has been blocked when it has come before the legislature in the past. In this discussion we learn about a means by which the will of legislators, and by extension the will of the people who elect them, can be circumvented, not just in this type of case but perhaps others as well.

In Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America, historian Richard White tells the story of corporate misconduct, incompetence and greed surrounding the construction of the transcontinental railroads that changed America. White reconstructs the convoluted paper trail that enriched Gilded Age capitalists and triggered three economic crisis in the late 19th century." Dave Mazza hosts.

Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Thu, 07/21/2011

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Sarah Sobieraj, author of Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism.

Sobieraj explores the dynamics and costs of media obsession by activist groups.  She says the pervasive mediatization of politics has jeopardized the ability of dissenting groups to engage in public discourse and so has altered the very fabric of both social movements and the civil society that the news media claim to inform.

Her book is an ethnographic portrait of fifty diverse organizations over the course of two presidential campaign cycles. She argues that while most activist groups equate political success with media success and channel their energies accordingly, their efforts fail to generate news coverage and come with deleterious consequences.

Arthur Stamoulis talks about the Columbia Free Trade Agreement

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 07/11/2011

Arthur Stamoulis of Oregon Fair Trade Campaign talks about the demonstration planned for Congressman Earl Blumenauer's Office on Monday, July 11 * 12:00 noon at 729 NE Oregon St (Near the 7th Avenue MAX Station)

Fifty-one union leaders were assassinated in Colombia last year — more than in the rest of the world combined. At least 17 have been assassinated so far this year.

As the Colombia Free Trade Agreement races towards a vote in Congress, our elected officials will be forced to pick a side.  Will they stand with union members, small farmers, human rights advocates and others in the United States and Colombia who oppose the FTA?   Or will they stand with the transnational corporations who profit off the violent suppression of workers' rights, the forced displacement of Afro-Colombians from their land and the dumping of subsidized agricultural commodities?

So far, Congressman Earl Blumenauer is "undecided" on the Colombia FTA.
