Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Russell Leigh Sharman and Cheryl Harris Sharman, authors of Nightshift NYC. In the book they tell the stories of New York City nightshift workers. This ethnography of the night investigates familiar sites, such as diners, delis and taxis, as well as some unexpected corners of the night, such as a walking tour of homelessness in Manhattan and a fishing boat out of Brooklyn. The Sharmans show how the nightshift is more than simply out of phase, it is another social space altogether, highly structured, inherently subversive, and shot through with inequalities of power. NIGHTSHIFT presents the narratives of those who sleep too little and work too much, revealing the soul of a city hidden in the graveyard shift of 24-hour commerce when the sun goes down and the lights come up.

Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Peter Ward, author of "The Medea Hypothesis: Is Life on Earth Ultimately Self-Destructive?" Peter Ward will be speaking about his work tonight, Monday, May 11, 2009 at 07:30 PM at Powell's City of Books on Burnside.

In The Medea Hypothesis, renowned paleontologist Peter Ward proposes a revolutionary and provocative vision of life's relationship with the Earth's biosphere--one that has frightening implications for our future, yet also offers hope. Using the latest discoveries from the geological record, he argues that life might be its own worst enemy. This stands in stark contrast to James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis--the idea that life sustains habitable conditions on Earth. In answer to Gaia, which draws on the idea of the "good mother" who nurtures life, Ward invokes Medea, the mythical mother who killed her own children. Could life by its very nature threaten its own existence?

 Host Lisa Loving speaks with Dr. Sheri Speedefounder of the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center and In Defense of Animals-Africa (IDA-Africa), about saving chimpanzees and gorillas.

Moving to the Portland, Oregon area in 1988Dr. Speede soon became a partner in Pacific Veterinary Hospital, a successful southwest Portland practice.  She sold her interest in the veterinary practice in 1995 so she could commit her time to animal activism.

She co-founded the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, a non-profit organization dedicated to humanely reducing the population of feral cats through spaying and neutering.  As Northwest Director of In Defense of Animals, a non-profit organization based in Mill Valley, California, Dr. Speede advocated for companion animals, as well as victims of biomedical research, factory farms and circuses.  In addition, she was able to provide veterinary care to animals in sanctuaries, including primates in Cameroon, Africa.  Her two trips to Cameroon in 1997 soon changed the course of her life. 

Since 1998 Dr. Speede has lived in Cameroon.  With a mission to ensure that endangered chimpanzees survive in their natural habitats, she founded the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center and In Defense of Animals-Africa (IDA-Africa).  At the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center, located in Cameroon's Mbargue Forest, Dr. Speede and her staff provide sanctuary for chimpanzees orphaned by the illegal ape meat trade.  In collaboration with the government of Cameroon, she leads IDA-Africa in a public education, sensitization and social marketing campaign aimed at preventing the extinction of chimpanzees and gorillas.
