Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Sabine Heinlein about her book "Among Murderers: Life After Prison."

What is it like for a convicted murderer who has spent decades behind bars to suddenly find himself released into a world he barely recognizes? What is it like to start over from nothing? How does it feel to bear the shame of having killed someone? What constitutes successful rehabilitation? How does someone face the prospect of rejoining society with the guilt and shame of having taken taken another person’s life.

Declaration of Independence: A hindrance or roadmap for a more democratic society?

In 1776 a group of men debated and signed a document which listed their greivances with the King of England  and the reasons why they declared independence from Great Britiain.  As the United States of America prepares to observes the 237th anniversary of that event, do you think that our government lives up to its ideals? Is it time, in the words of the Declaration of Independence, for "the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness"?  Is the US government securing or preventing the  inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the inhabitants of its land?

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview Greg Carter about his new book "The United States of the United Races: A Utopian History of Racial Mixing."
 
Barack Obama’s historic presidency has re-inserted mixed race into the national conversation. While the troubled and pejorative history of racial amalgamation throughout U.S. history is a familiar story, Greg Carter asks us to reconsider an understudied optimist tradition, one which has praised mixture as a means to create a new people, bring equality to all, and fulfill an American destiny.

We Will Shoot Back: Armed Resistance in the Mississippi Freedom Movement
Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with scholar and activist Akinyele Umoja about his book We Will Shoot Back: Armed Resistance in the Mississippi Freedom Movement.

The Folly of Technological Solutionism

Join us Monday at 8am when our guest will be Evgeny Morozov, author of "To Save Everything, Click Here: The Folly of Technological Solutionism". Mr. Morozov, author of the well received "The Net Delusion", considers our inordinate love affair with "technological solutionism"as threatening to fundamental democratic ideals and practices. 

The temptation of the digital age is to fix everything—from crime to corruption to pollution to obesity—by digitally quantifying, tracking, or gamifying behavior. But when we change the motivations for our moral, ethical, and civic behavior we may also change the very nature of that behavior.

Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. The group is organizing with other secular and faith-based groups "Camp Hope: Countdown to Change" in Chicago, four blocks from Obama's residence there. The camp begins on New Year's Day and continues to Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Kelly says "Large lobbying groups, including some of the large corporations, are pushing Obama around the clock to preserve the status quo, wage war and provide for unbridled greed. What we're asking is that the money spent on the military be spent instead on soluble problems such as lack of healthcare."

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
