News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

Psychoanalysis and Politics: The Stanford Prison Experiment

program date: 
Mon, 08/10/2015

Jan Haaken and Tod Sloan discuss Phillip Zimbardo’s famous Stanford Prison Experiment, in which participants played the roles of guards and prisoners. The inspiration for several films, the study is usually remembered as showing that normal people can quickly become sadistic in contexts that invite such behavior. But Jan and Tod point out that this downplays evidence of prisoner resistance and ignores several features of the context of the study itself. images from imdb.com & memecollection.net 10:57 minutes (5.02 MB)

Bill Resnick comments on Donald Trump, the candidate, a/k/a the “Donald,” a cartoon character, an ego expanding faster than the universe. But did he really attack U.S. "democracy," and the role of money in politics? The answer is yes. And is he, as most pundits keep saying, really bad for the Republican Party? We wish it were so. image from http://www.mexican-american.org/ 7:28 minutes (3.42 MB)
