The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/07/12

Air date: 
Tue, 02/07/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe look back on a good couple of weeks for women. Also -- pledge drive!

 It's been a good couple of weeks for women. First, there was the ruling that nonprofits must cover contraception in their employees' health plans, even if doing so runs counter to church doctrine. Then there was the stunning betrayal -- and equally stunning reversal -- by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Both were victories for the notion of women as full human beings, and, crucially, both were won in the court of public opinion.

Also, it's fund-raising time. Open yer wallets in the name of our fair sisters, y'all.

Book Mole: The Intuitionist

program date: 
Mon, 02/06/2012

Iven Hale reviews Colson Whitehead's 1999 novel, "The Intuitionist." Set in a big city during a period of racial integration,Whitehead and Iven both explore the racial implications of the elevator as a metaphor for "social-uplift", the black female protagonist who is the first non-white male elevator inspector in the city, and the dueling methods for testing the functioning of the elevators that so deeply structure society: intuitionism and empiracism. Hale thinks Whitehead bites off more than he can adequately chew, but compares the novel to Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man" and remarks positively on how Whitehead treats blindness caused by privilege.
