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?

Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America

"Bundled securities...phony annual reports...bribed politicians...a crashed economy. These familiar-sounding conditions are just part of the legacy of the men who built the 19th century transcontinental railroads. In Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America, historian Richard White tells the story of corporate misconduct, incompetence and greed surrounding the construction of the transcontinental railroads that changed America. White reconstructs the convoluted paper trail that enriched Gilded Age capitalists and triggered three economic crisis in the late 19th century." Dave Mazza hosts.

Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Thu, 07/21/2011

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Sarah Sobieraj, author of Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism.

Sobieraj explores the dynamics and costs of media obsession by activist groups.  She says the pervasive mediatization of politics has jeopardized the ability of dissenting groups to engage in public discourse and so has altered the very fabric of both social movements and the civil society that the news media claim to inform.

Her book is an ethnographic portrait of fifty diverse organizations over the course of two presidential campaign cycles. She argues that while most activist groups equate political success with media success and channel their energies accordingly, their efforts fail to generate news coverage and come with deleterious consequences.

Arthur Stamoulis talks about the Columbia Free Trade Agreement

Mon, 07/11/2011

Arthur Stamoulis of Oregon Fair Trade Campaign talks about the demonstration planned for Congressman Earl Blumenauer's Office on Monday, July 11 * 12:00 noon at 729 NE Oregon St (Near the 7th Avenue MAX Station)

Fifty-one union leaders were assassinated in Colombia last year — more than in the rest of the world combined. At least 17 have been assassinated so far this year.

As the Colombia Free Trade Agreement races towards a vote in Congress, our elected officials will be forced to pick a side.  Will they stand with union members, small farmers, human rights advocates and others in the United States and Colombia who oppose the FTA?   Or will they stand with the transnational corporations who profit off the violent suppression of workers' rights, the forced displacement of Afro-Colombians from their land and the dumping of subsidized agricultural commodities?

So far, Congressman Earl Blumenauer is "undecided" on the Colombia FTA.
