Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on December 22, 2012

When the US military support for the brutal regime of El Salvador failed to suppress popular movements, the international investment community moved to take over the country through programs of "privatization," the sale of national assets, water, utilities, etc., to global corporations.  Now the Obama Administration, in a bid to fend off invasion of Latin American markets by European and Chinese interests, furthers this privatization to the great detriment of the government and people of that country.

Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, discusses the package of legislation that has passed the US House of Representatives during the first session of Congress this year.  From making abortions more expensive, or by slashing programs that disproportionately employ or benefit women such as Pell Grants, Headstart,  or Food Stamps, or pre-natal care, this Congress has systematically discriminated against women.  Why or how?  Because "we are invisible," says O'Neill.

Gary Hart -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on April 30, 2011

Former US Senator Gary Hart discusses the origins of the American republic that at its origins meant public responsibility for citizenship and civic virtue.  “We must earn our rights by the performance of our duties,” quotes Hart, lamenting the loss of personal responsibility and public virtue in today’s politics.

Shoaib Rahim -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on April 24, 2011

Afghanistan is a country in cultural transition, caught in war still after 30 years, and is viewed in this conversation by Shoaib Rahim, an Afghan Fulbright scholar who has spent the last year at Duke University. Rahim addresses the contradictions between the need for both a quick American withdrawal and a long-term American presence.  He addresses the catastrophe of American military power killing civilians and the equally potentially catastrophic result from an American hasty retreat that would leave the country helpless before it is able to cope on its own, with its own institutions. Rahim calls for an honest discussion of these ambiguities rather than the easy sloganeering of global politics.

William Hogeland -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on April 16, 2011

William Hogeland gives us stories of the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence that few of us have heard, including the critical days of May 1776 when mechanics, small shop keepers and privates in the militia banded together with John and Samuel Adams to demand, not just an end to taxation by the British, but a form of democratic government in which ordinary people would have the vote.  Working people brought off the critical change in Pennsylvania's legislature that eventually led to July 4th, and changed history.

Dana Freyer -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on April 9, 2011

Dana Freyer faces the ambiguities in America's presence in Afghanistan from the standpoint of one whose organization Global Partnership for Afghanistan has planted ten million trees, recreated irrigation systems, taught chicken inoculation and cold storage, and involved more than 175,000 Afghanis in their own agricultural redevelopment.  Simply pulling out is not an option, she says. As we wind down our military presence we must find ways to protect the significant gains that are liberating both men and women from poverty and terror.

Elaine Pagels -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on April 2, 2011

Elaine Pagels has found in the Nag Hammadi gospels a message of personal transformation and clarity that would make a modern psychologist proud.  As the nation's most celebrated interpreter of these fourth century scrolls, Pagels discusses the contrast between the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of John and the mechanisms of church politics that brought the latter into the acceptable canon while condemning Thomas as heresy from which he has only been redeemed by the discovery in 1945 of these ancient scrolls.

Santa Fe Girls School -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on March 26, 2011

The Santa Fe Girls School is a private school for girls in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades, that requires of its entering students only that they have a desire to learn.  In this program four eight graders describe their experiences out on Project Preserve, restoring the Santa Fe River, removing non native species of trees, creating habitat for beaver, measuring water quality, reporting to the officials in the Surface Water Commission about phosphates that they have measured over a multi-year period.  They will knock your socks off!

Richard Schneider -> Listen

Richard Schneider has spent the last 20 years of his life running a school in a small village of India, opening doors to the world beyond for young boys and girls who would never have had a chance to rise above their traditional cast.  He tells us about caste and class, gratitude and brotherhood, and is one of those soft-spoken people of light who quietly are changing the world.

Herman Daly -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on March 5, 2011

For thirty years Herman Daly has been  a voice in the wilderness detailing the flaws in the growth economy, examining promises of prosperity that neither technology nor resource manipulation can ever fulfill.  Not only are there limits to growth, growth does not feed our spiritual or moral lives, a reality almost completely ignored by neo-classical economists.  Daly's Steady State Economics is still iconic for those who see the advantages of small scale production, decentralization, increased durability of products, and increased long-run efficiency in the the use of scarce resources.  In this conversation he lays it all out in vivid detail.

Ben Barber -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on February 26, 2011

Ben Barber has been a consultant to Saif Qhaddfi's democracy foundation until resigning this week. As the author of 17 books on democracy and modern culture he looks at tribal and family loyalties and predicts a long difficult road for Libya ahead. "Democracy is not just regime change, and no two countries are alike. Libya does not have the width and breadth of middle class that Egypt has and has little infrastructure with which to replace the dictator."  The focus then shifts to Madison, Wisconsin and the destruction of the middle class by the narrowest interests with the most money and the gradual shift of this country toward plutocracy.

Jacqueline St. Joan -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on February 19, 2011

Jacqueline St. Joan is a former judge, law professor, feminist and now a novelist whose My Sisters Made of Light strips back the veil from honor killing and women's chattelization in Pakistan.  St. Joan weaves a story of intrigue and passion and in the telling lays bare practices that will chill westerners to the bone.  The story may never see the light of day in Pakistan and the names of her informers have to be disguised, so deep are the fears of both men and women on this subject.

Nabil Echchaibi -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on February 5, 2011

As the Middle East is rocked by turmoil and upheaval, Nabil Echchaibi returns to Our Times to relate what is being said by Al Jazeera, who is in the streets of Cairo, and who is telling the story in Arabic.  Echchaibi puts the Muslim Brotherhood in a light unfamiliar to western viewers as the champion of the revolution and is a professor of mass communications at the University of Colorado at Boulder, a Moroccan who keeps close tabs and recounts how they too have been harassed, kidnapped and beaten by Mubarak's supporters.  Altogether, this is an exciting new view of what is happening in Egypt during these tense days of decision.

Dr. Brene Brown -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on January 29, 2011

Dr. Brenè Brown has been researching and gathering data for more than 10 years and concludes that when we live someone else's story and therefore crowd out our own special creativity, the pain and grief of that loss does not go away. It turns to fear, anger, and shame. If we go on living in a way that is not authentic we may try to mask the pain with perfection, aggression, or addiction. The better answer is to discover and follow a path that allows us to make our own, individual contributions to the world; to be vulnerable to our imperfections; to trust that we are enough. Humorous, authentic, and alive, Dr. Brown lives what she teaches.

John Rubel -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on January 15, 2011

John Rubel was director of research and development in the Pentagon when the Minuteman missile was the pride of the Air Force because it could be launched within a single minute. "What civilian controls?" asked Rubel to the generals.  "Very complicated," came their reply, in effect admitting that there were none. So Rubel set out to convince at first the Eisenhower and then the Kennedy administrations that a vastly improved protocol was required. Rubel's courage and intellectual timber come through in this fascinating interview.

Charles Eisenstein explores the biology of cellular collaboration and the impact of the New Biology on Darwin's theory of natural selection, on modern theories of competition and the free market, and on our current tendency to think of ourselves as separate, independent, self-interested people. All these old stories are coming to an end, says Eisenstein, to be be replaced by an understanding of our natural interdependence and tendency to collaborate for our common survival.

Bob Reich -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on December 4, 2010

Former Labor Secretary Bob Reich explains how current economic policies recommended by Republicans and some democrats to put more money in the hands of the banks and the investment class cannot succeed because the middle class cannot purchase what the investment class produces. The remedy must be to create purchasing power in the middle class and no conversation in Washington is openly addressing this issue. America has therefore concentrated its wealth to a degree not seen since 1928 and the consequence is the same. Too much money at the top and not enough in the middle and bottom has produced the biggest crisis in American economics since the great depression and with much of the same cause.

Amid all the fear of Islamic Jihad, the American public hears little of the conversation going on within Islamic media, including television and on the blogosphere, concerning modernization and morality, how to live in ways that may include dance and song and material gain as well as maintaining the faith. A current of popular shows, originating from Cairo, London and even Los Angeles,  is taking on the Imams and nationalists and urging full engagement with the West. This is an engagement that seeks to hold on to traditional moral values and advance into the new world at the same time. Nabil Echchaibi is a professor of mass communications at the University of Colorado and leads us through this most revealing story.

James Fishkin -> Listen

Aired on KSFR 101.1 FM on October 30, 2010

The framers of the Constitution of the US tried to create institutions of deliberation, places where reasoned and thoughtful debate could occur and where rationality might triumph. With the arrival of the mass media and the internet, however, something unexpected has occurred: instead of reasoned exchanges, our population has segregated itself into like minded and self-confirming cliques of opinion that have bred extremism and irrationality rather than rationality. Professor Fishkin has developed a remarkable response to this phenomenon, re-creating institutions of Deliberative Democracy and these he has pioneered all over the world from China to Ireland, from Rome to Denmark and widely within the United States. The principles and practice of this experiment to remake democracy are available in this program and at cdd.stanford.edu

From all the images of war and destruction in Afghanistan we in the West have little idea of the lives of those who are part of the 30 million Afghans who are not at war and not fighting. Dana Freyer and her husband Bruce have been working with local Afghans to build community, plant trees, create storage houses, empower women and bring back the village life that existed in that rich country before the Soviet invasion 30 years ago. Their story is shocking in that it is so beautiful and so little known.

Fred Kaufman wanted to know what more, in addition to aberrant weather, was behind the recent world wide food shortages, including an extraordinary number of children in this country who are insufficiently nourished or go hungry every year. He investigated the commodities futures market and discovered that Goldman Sachs had created a commodities index that disconnected the actual price of wheat from futures prices and in effect drove the price of bread up all over the world. The speculators had taken over the market and led it to heights of gambling that had no internal governor and therefore no limit. Millions were affected and many died while Goldman and other New York financial houses made billions.

Bill Frej -> Listen

Three months ago Bill Frej was the point man for all of USAID development programs in Afghanistan. Now at the Santa Fe Institute Bill reports that under the Taliban only 300,000 students  (none were women) were in school but that today under US programs there are 8 million and 40% of these are girls. USAID has, in addition, trained over 10,000 school teachers and built over 800 schools; supplied over 68 million text books for math and geography in Pashtu and Dari languages. The secret of the program’s successes has been a change in the last 14 months to  “Afghanization” of the efforts, employing over 40,000 Afghan farmers and teachers. It is therefore Afghans who at great risk to themselves are taking education and agricultural changes to their villages.  This is a great untold story and is worth listening to.

Charles Eisenstein's The Ascent of Humanity is intended to turn Charles Darwin, Adam Smith and Karl Marx all upside down. Eisenstein offers an alternative paradigm of symbiosis and collaboration as the explanation of the success of all species. Competition is overrated and random selection is much less likely the explanation for species success than combinations of new species with the purpose of improvement.  A new consciousness is inevitable because the age of technology has reached its zenith with probable catastrophic consequences unless we change.

Richard Wilkinson has pulled together facts from around the world to create a compelling case that a whole array of society's ills can be traced to one factor: the extent of the gap between the very richest and the remainder of the community. Teen age pregnancy, obesity, a sense of well being and happiness, drug use, prison enrollment and many more factors all point to the conclusion that the wealth gap is not only associated with these problems but is actually causal. It is no surprise that the United States is second only to Singapore as the worst among developed nations in the way of this wealth gap and has the prison enrollment, obesity and unhappiness levels to prove it.

We are usually taught that disease and acculturation either took out, or caused the blending in, of Native Americans, and that the “true” Indians have been “lost.”  Not so, says professor Michael Wilcox of Stanford University’s Anthropology Department in his new book, The Pueblo Revolt. That revolt of 1680, famous to New Mexicans as the most successful revolt by indigenous populations of any in US history, had far more to do with brutality, slavery, and forced extermination of Native religions than with those more neutral causes.
