Lyn and guest host Theresa Mitchell speak with Dr. Kristin Neff about self-compassion
The relentless search for high self-esteem has become a virtual religion; and a tyrannical one at that. Our competitive culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves, but we can’t all be above average at the same time. There is always someone richer, more attractive, or successful than we are. And even when we do manage to feel self-esteem for one golden moment, we can’t hold on to it. Dr. Kristin Neff, an Associate Professor in Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin says self-compassion is an antidote to the web of deception surrounding the mythos of "self esteem".
Police infiltration of radical movements-- really? They do that? Listen in for a lively discussion!
Lyn and ani's guest will be Peg Millett, environmental activist, and member of the so-called Arizona Five.
In 1989, Peg was arrested with other Earth Firsters in a sting operation, and served three years without parole.
With rumors flying about the resurgence of police / FBI infiltration and entrapment practices to break movements, we thought it is important to look at this piece of very relevant history, and see what lessons can be gained.
This behavior by the police and powers that be is anything but new, or limited to a few isolated cases. Known as COINTELPRO in the 60s, the practice is occassionally stopped or thwarted by civil liberatarians, only to pop back up with a new code name and slightly modified practices a bit later.
How can organizers and activists be aware of this practice of the state and not fall victim to it? Join our conversation with Peg Millet, and learn your history!

Ani and Lyn speak with John Nichols, correspondent for The Nation magazine and the associate editor of The Capital Times in Madison, Wisconsin. His latest book is "Uprising: How Wisconsin Renewed the Politics of Protest, from Madison to Wall Street." He has covered seven presidential races and reported from two-dozen countries. He is the author or coauthor of eight books on media and politics.
They will be discussing why Wisconsin matters and how the spirit of Wisconsin has inspired activism on other states. What's a "Next Media" system and how can it allow citizens to create their own media platforms. Can we possibly reclaim the first amendment, how the progressive past and historical roots can motivate and encourage citizens to fight for their lives and livlihoods. This and more ... you never know where talk radio will go.

Drawing upon myths and wisdom traditions from both the East and West, Micheal Meade finds and mines the ancient "roots of wisdom'. Rather than abstract knowlege or general truths, this "embodied wisdom" is shown to be both immediate and eternal, both personal and deeply soulful. The point here is the awakening of the Uniquness within each individual and their connection to the divine: which is to say our connection to each other.
No more business as usual -- May Day 2012. Lyn and Ani be talking with people from the Portland Liberation Organizing Council about what they have planned for the day, and why.
There are many things going on throughout the day, organized by many different groups.
These include a 9 am gathering in Woodlawn Park, with march to liberate a space; an unpermitted march gathering under the eastend of the Burnside Bridge at 11:30; a permitted march gathering in the South Park Blocks at Shemanski Park, and more!
We'd look forward to hearing from you!
