Lyn and Ani talk with mythological scholar Micheal Meade

The events of the last week have us thinking deeply about things ... how does tragedy shape of perception of fear? Is it fear ... is it dread? What is needed to help reshape this culture from one of violence, greed and fear, to something more co-operative, imaginative and peaceful. This week we are fortunate to have renowned storyteller, author, and scholar of mythology, anthropology, and psychology Micheal Meade to help us grope with these timely and provacative questions. Micheal is the founder of Mosaic Multicultural Foundation, a group that works extensively with at risk youth and veterans. So, tune in or stream us for a "soul inoculation".

Short Description: 
Talking about the winter holidays in a multi-cultural society.

FOX News and other conservative media outlets have been promoting the concept of there being a "War on Christmas".  The idea being that if a person wishes someone anything other than a "Merry Christmas", they are directly insulting Christians and attacking little baby Jesus in his manger.  Given that there are a number of faiths with holidays during December, how does a multi-cultural society respect and acknowledge multiple celebrations and observances.

And while on the subject of respecting many spiritual paths--turns out the Mayan calendar does not end later this month, and the persistant hype of the end of the world is benefitting tour operators and new age bookstores, while offending the Mayans.

Abe and Joe examine the Israel/Palestine conflict, past and present.

 Some things are timeless -- the world turns, and Israelis and Palestinians try to kill each other. As the latest iteration in this eternal folly heads into its second week, efforts to broker a cease-fire are intensifying.

That act prompted threats on his life by Chinese agents, coercion by Chinese authorities and diplomatic discussions between the US and China that reached Oregon's Congressonal delegation. Don Merrill talked with David Lin about the mural and his American sensibilities on how to prepare and protect the US against what he sees as the triple threats of global warming, family breakdown and an increasingly aggressive China.
