Social Security: Beyond the Doom and Gloom

Host Celeste Carey interviews Max Richtman, Executive VP/Acting CEO of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.

Richtman says, “It’s important that Americans understand the [just-released] 2011 Trustees Report which confirms that Social Security and Medicare continue to fulfill their mission, providing retirement and health security to millions still suffering during the worst economic crisis of a generation. Beyond the doom-and-gloom news headlines and calls to cut these programs in order to ‘save’ them, the fiscal facts in this annual report show that Social Security has a $2.6 trillion surplus which continues to grow."

Geraldine Brooks on her new novel "Caleb's Crossing"

Host Marianne Barisonek interviews Geraldine Brooks, best-selling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize (for March) about her new book, CALEB’S CROSSING, which was inspired by the life of Caleb Cheeshahteaumauk, the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College. Brooks first learned about him during her time as a Radcliffe fellow at Harvard in 2006. Caleb was from the Wampanoag tribe of Native Americans who lived on Martha’s Vineyard. There is little official information on Caleb’s life and Brooks’s novel is an informed imagining of what he might have gone through.

Wisconsin Uprising

program date: 
Wed, 03/16/2011
Wisconsin is again at the center of a fight for labor and collective bargaining rights. We did most of these interviews last week, just as the news broke that collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin had been all but eliminated for public workers. This came after three weeks of massive protests in Madison and less publicized protests across the state that inspired social justice activists nationally and internationally.
Tonight on Circle A Radio we speak with Ken Germanson, former President of the Wisconsin Labor History Society. We also have interviews with Margaret Shannon, Natalie Tsoris, and Lauryl Sulfate, all of Wisconsin, all opposed to the union-busting Budget Repair Bill proposed in the Wisconsin State Senate in February 2011.

Voices from the Edge 03-17-11 A new look at Oregon's Measure 11 and its impacts

program date: 
Thu, 03/17/2011

Kevin Mannix promised voters in 1994 that his Ballot Measure 11 establishing minimum mandatory sentences would create certainty in Oregon's criminal justice system. While the measure tripled the state's prison population over 20 years, a new report by the state Criminal Justice Commission finds that Measure 11 not only failed to deliver certainty, it has cost the state billions of dollars while it shifting sentencing power from the hands of judges to those of district attorneys - a shift many see as dangerous.
