The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Charles Fishman, author of The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water, which explores our strange and complex relationship to water. We love water — but at the moment, we don’t appreciate it or respect it. Just as we’ve begun to reimagine our relationship to food, a change that is driving the growth of the organic and local food movements, we must also rethink how we approach and use water.

In the course of reporting about water to write The Big Thirst, Fishman has stood at the bottom of a half-million-gallon sewage tank, sampled water directly from the springs in San Pellegrino, Italy, and Poland Spring, Maine, and carried water on his head for 3 km with a group of Indian villagers.

PLASTIC: A Toxic Love Story

Science writer Susan Freinkel talks about her book PLASTIC: A Toxic Love Story. 

In PLASTIC, Susan traces the history of the substance, and our pervasive use of it. She writes about the good uses of plastic (IV bags, heart monitors, design concepts, etc) and the bad aspects (health concerns, danger to animals, etc). She follows the history of plastic through eight household items including the comb, credit card, and soda bottle. She visited factories in China, where women toil 60-hour weeks for $175 a month to make Frisbees. She also visited preemie wards, where the lifesaving vinyl tubes that deliver food and oxygen to premature babies may cause altered thyroid function, allergies, and liver problems later in life.

Beyond the doom-and-gloom news headlines and calls to cut these programs in order to ‘save’ them, the fiscal facts in this annual report show that Social Security has a $2.6 trillion surplus which continues to grow."

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview James Kloppenberg about his book "Reading Obama: Dreams, Hope, and the American Political Tradition."

Intellectual historian Kloppenberg says the influences that have shaped Obama's distinctive worldview, include Nietzsche and Niebuhr, Ellison and Rawls, and recent theorists engaged in debates about feminism, critical race theory, and cultural norms. Kloppenberg argues that Obama's interest in compromise, reasoned public debate, and the patient nurturing of civility is a sign of strength, not weakness. He locates its roots in Madison, Lincoln, and especially in the philosophical pragmatism of William James and John Dewey, which nourished generations of American progressives, black and white, female and male, through much of the twentieth century, albeit with mixed results.

James T. Kloppenberg is the Charles Warren Professor of American History and chair of the History Department at Harvard University. His books include Uncertain Victory: Social Democracy and Progressivism in European and American Thought, 1870-1920; The Virtues of Liberalism; and A Companion to American Thought.

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview Daniel Martinez HoSang about his book Racial Propositions: Ballot Initiatives and the Making of Postwar California (American Crossroads), which looks at the controversial history of California's ballot measures over the past fifty years. HoSang is professor of Political and Ethnic Studies at the University of Oregon. He will also discuss Oregon ballot measures and local concerns--especially efforts to expand prisons and attack labor rights in Oregon through recent ballot measures.

As the rest of the U.S. watched, California voters banned public services for undocumented immigrants, repealed public affirmative action programs, and outlawed bilingual education, among other measures. Why did a state with a liberal political culture, an increasingly diverse populace, and a well-organized civil rights leadership roll back civil rights and anti-discrimination gains? Daniel Martinez HoSang finds that, contrary to popular perception, this phenomenon does not represent a new wave of "color-blind" policies, nor is a triumph of racial conservatism. Instead HoSang uncovers surprising connections between the right and left that reveal how racial inequality has endured.

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
