Movie Review: A Wink and a Smile

program date: 
Sun, 05/10/2009
An intoxicating mix of private thoughts and public behavior, A Wink and a Smile exposes more than the human body by putting gender, power, sexuality and social identity under the glittery spotlight, as it follows the lives of ten "ordinary" women who do something extraordinary – learn the art of burlesque dancing and striptease.

Bridget B. here, and this edition of Bread & Roses was all about The Importance of Mother's Day; it's actual meaning and how you can get involved to make a difference. Given that this show fell right before Mother's Day, or on Mother's Day in other countries, I wanted to bring to your attention the what, why, when and by whom Mother's Day was conceived, what it has become over time and what you can do to re-direct this day back towards its original meaning.

Race and Obama's First 100 Days

program date:

Last week, President Obama reached his first 100 days in office, triggering a media flurry of speculation about how well he's doing.

Host Ani will speak with long time activist, author and professor Robert Jensen.

In Jensen's latest book, All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice, he argues that in a world racked with political, economic, cultural, and ecological crises, there is a spiritual emptiness that encourages further alienation. 

Can religion be a tool with which we may create closer ties to all humanity and begin to create a just and sustainable society? What part can religion play to help us face with confidence the uncertainty of our lives.

Jensen's writings explore the important questions What does it mean to be human?

Bridget B. here to let you know that I'm set to host the next edition of Bread & Roses on KBOO 90.7FM, Friday, May 8, 2009 from 6pm - 7pm.

Given that this show falls right before Mother's Day, I'd like to bring to your attention the what, why, when and by whom Mother's Day was conceived, what it has become over time and what you can do to re-direct this day back towards its original meaning.
