he United States of the United Races: A Utopian History of Racial Mixing
 
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.

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.

Rules of Engagement: Gender-Sensitivity

Rules of Engagement: Gender-Sensitivity in Society. Women continue to battle sexism .

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
