Antonia Juhasz and her book BLACK TIDE: the Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 04/25/2011

 

Host Per Fagereng interviews Antonia Juhasz about her new book BLACK TIDE: the Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill

It is the largest oil disaster in American history, and it could happen again. It is more than a story of ruined beaches, dead wildlife, chemical dispersants, corporate spin, political machinations, and financial fallout. It is a riveting human drama filled with people whose lives will forever be defined as “before” and “after” the Gulf oil disaster. Black Tide is the only book to tell this story through the perspective of people on all sides of the catastrophe, from those who lost their lives, loved ones, and livelihoods to those who made the policies that set the devastating event in motion, those who cut the corners that put corporate profits over people and the environment, and those who have committed their lives to ensuring that such an event is never repeated.

“We cannot allow the BP disaster to be pushed from public view the way BP used chemical dispersants to hide the oil. These remarkable stories—of loss, heroism, and culpability—are a vivid reminder that this catastrophe will be with us for decades, and that we have not yet made the changes necessary to prevent destruction in the future.”

--Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism

Antonia Juhasz is Director and Founder of the Energy Program at Global Exchange, a San Francisco-based human rights non-profit organization. She is a policy-analyst, author and activist.

Juhasz is the author of The Tyranny of Oil: the World’s Most Powerful Industry, and What We Must Do To Stop It (HarperCollins 2008) and The Bu$h Agenda: Invading the World, One Economy at a Time (HarperCollins 2006).

I'm Hot!...and I'm Bald!": CHEMOTHERAPY FOR WINNERS

Categories:
program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 04/18/2011

Host Crystal Leighty speaks with Elaine Jesmer, author of "I'm Hot!...and I'm Bald!": CHEMOTHERAPY FOR WINNERS," about how to handle the side effects of chemotherapy, and why it's important not be afraid of it.

Jesmer says chemo is not only the standard of care for many cancers, but also for multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and for anyone who has had an organ transplant. Although the severity of the side effects vary, the side effects are often the same for anyone taking these drugs. She focuses on different ways to handle the side effects and the importance of overcoming the fear. According to Jesmer fear can be almost as deadly as the disease chemo is treating because it interferes with judgment at a time when clear judgment is needed.
