Radical Music: Christy Moore

program date: 
Mon, 03/28/2011

 Today's show was peppered with selections of Christy Moore's music, including a fairly complete cut of Ordinary Man. Joe talked with Brad at the end of the show, and due to an engineering error we experienced almost 40-seconds of dead-air. It's been edited out of the online version, but we apologize if you endursed it live. Brad highlights Moore's internationalist taste in the music he covers and the causes he sings about, like Viva la Quince Brigada,but also the class-consciousness of songs like Ordinary Man.

Two Sacred Cows: farming and unionism

program date: 
Mon, 03/28/2011

We replay a rousing speech given by Tony Schultz, a dairy farmer in Wisconsin, where he explain how unionism and agrarian culture share the same values.

 

After that Bill talks with Monica Adams an activist also in Wisconsin who works with Freedom Inc. They talk about the origins of the uprising in Wisconsin and Freedom Inc's involvement. Monica paints a portrait of a working-class struggle that precedes Scott Walker's sensational union-busting, but concludes questioning the unity of the public's interest in economic fairness and participatory budgeting.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Beyond Vietnam

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Beyond Vietnam (lecture)

Every year, almost like clockwork around his birthday, Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" gets airplay. The charismatic orator is frozen on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in August 1963.

No doubt it was a great and historic presentation, profoundly moving and full of dazzling poetry and inspiring images. But he was to give another very significant speech that is often obscured.

Robert Whitaker on Anatomy of an Epidemic

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Robert Whitaker, author of "Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America." Robert Whitaker probed into clinical studies in prestigious scientific journals, some dating back more than 50 years. He noticed a shocking anomaly. Psychiatric drugs have repeatedly been shown to worsen mental illness, to say nothing of the risks of liver damage, weight gain, elevated cholesterol and blood sugar, and reduced cognitive function they entail. The reality, he says, is that, because no one knows what causes mental illness, there’s no cure or palliation to be found in these pills.
