The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/05/12

Air date: 
Tue, 06/05/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
As Joe prepares for his annual hiatus, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

 The State of the Union is screwed. Four years into the New Depression, the economy still lags and working people suffer while the ruling class rolls in profligate wealth. Inequality grows more extreme. The wars drag on. The modern surveillance state is a reality. The planet grows warmer.

What's to be done? Do we play by the rules, and rely on our democratic institutions? If so, whom do we support? Does it matter? Is it time for a more creative solution?

In Joe's last show before his annual summer break, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 05/29/12

Air date: 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe ponder the recent preponderance of religious misbehavior.

Some three centuries into the Age of Reason, there still seem to be an inordinate number of public clashes between the secular and the sacred. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is using the two-week runup to the 4th of July to stage something called the "Fortnight for Freedom," a nationwide campaign aimed at ensuring that the Catholic Church (and other institutions) can continue to exercise their religious liberty by denying their employees access to contraception and abortion.

Tillicum Wawa with Cynthia King/News on Winnemem Wintu/Upcoming "Return Voyage" Event

What a great learning opportunity, speaking with Cynthia King, Native herbalist and owner of The Herb Shed! Her specialty is aromatherapy...at one point she sprayed cedar mist in the air room. The calming and balancing effects left us very relaxed. I thinks that could be heard on-air. Thank you so much, Cynthia, for coming to KBOO and being part of the conversation!

Inette injured in auto collision

Asking KBOO community to pray or send thoughts of healing to Inette Miller Imaikalani and Iokepa Imaikalani. They were in their car and struck by a drunk driver doing 80 MPH near Crescent City, CA yesterday (5/20/12). Inette is in the hospital with major injuries. PLEASE SEND PRAYERS!

Cultural revitalization in progress!

Just back from a weekend in Port Orford, celebrating the 19th annual Salmon Bake/Ancestor Honoring Days. It really feels like we are strengthening our culture, our friendships and family relationships, and our ties to the land and our ancestors who live(d) there.  The elders have their eyes on those of us who will be following in their footsteps the best we can.

I am looking forward to the John Talley Memorial Event this Friday...People from across cultures will gather to honor the one and only, the late John Talley...

When I get the final of the program I will post it here.

I am honored to have interned with John here at KBOO in 2004. Little did I know that a senior project for my Bachelor of Arts degree from Marylhurst would propell me into radio or into a faithful friendship.. I am truly blessed to have known John and to have him as a friend.

Focusing on that has given me solace when false and greedy, mean and ugly acts have been directed at me during a time of grief..I have lost respect for those involved but I pray that those misdirected people will be redirected to a path more positive.

Donadaghvi,

Beyond Veganism: Food Justice and Racism in the food industry

Everyone should have the right to choose foods they want to eat, especially foods that are healthier for them and that meet some of their ethical beliefs. Communities of color and low-income communities often have difficulty accessing healthier foods when compared to higher income areas.

Musings on KBOO Membership and More

Categories:

During this membership drive I've had time to think about why and how I am involved with KBOO.

[INSERT WAVY IMAGE AND DREAMLIKE MUSIC HERE]

2000. Recently divorced. Left the conservative church I'd been a member of for decades. Had started reading "radical" news like The Oregon Peaceworker.

By this time, I'd already been involved in my revitalized tribal culture for some time. (I remember the first powwow I had attended, bouncing my baby Tk-tk (Rachel) in my arms to the big drum that was the heart beat of the nations.)

I found my way to Portland, land of anonymity, where I could follow my passions for forest defense, nursing, and being free of the scrutiny of a small, conservative community. But I really missed my sweatlodge community in Coos County.
