The KBOO Youth Collective worked for nine weeks this fall with a SUN School Class at Clear Creek Middle School. We created these two radio pieces, one on The Economy, and one on Bullying. This is the version that was broadcast on The Underground.
The SUN School Radio Class students were Andrew, Kiara, Kyler, Larissa, Lila, Madison, Omar , Rachel , Sara, and Teo. Thanks to Patti Haack for her help.
This edition of the Food Show featured two experts on the Farm Bill -- multiyear omnibus federal legislation that covers commodity payments, agricultural land conservation programs, nutrition programs such as SNAP (formerly Food Stamps), and more. It is up for renewal in Congress in 2012.
Clayton Morgareidge hosts this Old Mole episode which surveys the Occupy movement; the differences between the US and the UK labor movements; workers' struggles in our broken food industry; and an implausible story about a poisoned husband.

The system that puts food on our tables is broken and corrupt. The Food Chain Workers’ Alliance is a coalition of worker-based organizations whose members plant, harvest, process, pack, transport, prepare, serve, and sell food. In this conversation with director Joann Lo, we hear how they are organizing to improve wages and working conditions for all workers along the food chain.
Explaining the Farm Bill and How You Can Have an Impact on the Next Bill

Ten Years That Shook the City: San Francisco 1968-78 is A collection of first-person and historical essays spans the people’s history of San Francisco in the tumultuous decade from 1968, the year of the San Francisco State College strike, to 1978 and the twin traumas of the Jonestown massacre and the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. This volume provides a broad look at the diverse ways those ten years shaped the world we live in today. From community gardening to environmental justice, gay rights and other identity-based social movements, anti-gentrification efforts, neighborhood arts programs and more, many of the initiatives whose origins are described here have taken root and spread far beyond San Francisco.
