Sea Change Radio: Soil4Climate: To Meat or Not To Meat?

Date Uploaded: 2019-06-18 15:56:25.0
To meat or not to meat? That is the question. Recent innovations in lab-grown meats seem to be making non-meat burgers and tacos a tastier option than they have ever been. But are these products too good to be true? And are non-meat alternatives always more ecologically responsible than actual meat? This week’s guests on Sea Change Radio have some thoughts on the matter. We speak with the co-founders of Soil4Climate, Seth Itzkan and Karl Thidemann, about the mission of their organization. They lay out the benefits of regenerative farming and grazing practices, as well as a lifestyle that includes eating plenty of meat. They also explain why they hope companies like Impossible Foods ultimately fulfill the promise in their name, and cease to be possible.



TUC Radio: Richard Grossman: Dismantling Corporations - Archive Part ONE of TWO

Date Uploaded: 2019-06-18 13:21:23.0
Ralph Nader called Richard Grossman the preeminent historian of corporations. In his writings and teaching Grossman warned us that unchecked corporate power would lead to the destruction of democracy. He said that the American revolution was fought less against the King but “against the crown corporations, the Hudsons Bay and East India Corporations.” And he believed that it is time to remember that fight and assert sovereignty of the people over corporations and the corporate state.

In this speech Grossman provocatively calls for dismantling “the thousand largest corporations off the face of the earth.” Richard Grossman’s research showed him that in the original intent of American revolutionaries corporations did not have rights, they only had privileges, and only those that we the people bestow on them. They were to be limited by a revocable charter that specified what they were allowed to do; it’s board and officers were to be fully liable for any harms the corporation did; and they initially had none of the free speech rights that go along with person-hood.

If Richard Grossman were still alive today he would be shocked to see that corporations and bankers from Exxon to Goldman Sachs, from General Dynamics to Lockheed Martin, from Wells Fargo to pipeline builder Energy Transfer, no longer are limited to purchasing influence by buying congress people one by one – but now own and run large parts of the government directly.

Radio Curious: Lucy Grealy – What is Ugly

Date Uploaded: 2019-06-18 10:57:27.0
The Autobiography of a Face

Lucy Grealy, a victim of Ewing’s Sarcoma, beginning when was nine years old suffered from a cancer of the jaw that is 90% fatal in the first few years. In Lucy’s case, it was not fatal. Rather it brought about many intense and emotional experiences that most of us could not imagine. She had a large part of her lower jaw removed when she was about nine and half and for two and a half years had weekly chemotherapy treatments. Throughout her teenage years, she had multiple surgeries to reshape her jaw. Her book, “Autobiography of a Face,” reveals her experiences, her mistaken conflation of beauty and love, and what she learned about emotions, both her own and other people’s.

Lucy Grealy recommends “100 Years of Solitude,” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

While the PM of Japan was opening talks with Iran's leaders, two ships headed to Japan from the Strait of Hormuz were damaged in an attack. Immediately the US points at Iran, but it is an old trick of the Americans. Most countries appear to suspect the accusers. Trump, Pompeo, and Bolton all have a long record of threatening Iran.

GM is closing its Oshawa plant in December, but not only GM workers are taking the hit. The supplier workers, like Ken Pearn who has worked at Lear Seating for 33 years, are facing a tough fight to get a fair deal. They're entitled to full pensions and benefits. What's been offered is "not enough."



This Week In Palestine: The Israeli Lobby and the First Generation of the Palestine ...

We spend a good deal of time on This Week In Palestine exploring the power of the Israeli lobby because of the significant role it plays in the manipulation of Congress, the president, the media, and therefore the American people. Walter Hixson, Professor of History at Akron University, has written a new book, "Israel’s Armor: The Israeli Lobby and the First Generation of the Palestine conflict," that traces the roots of the Israeli lobby all the way back to the birth of the Zionist movement. In today's presentation, Professor Hixson explains and discusses the book's thesis.

Before that, we quote an article by Ramzy Baroud that takes on the pending so-called "deal of the century" authored by Jared Kushner, which is supposedly soon to be released. It appears to be dead on arrival. By now, it is perfectly clear that the "deal of the century" is not a peace plan, nor was it ever intended to be, despite what its chief architect and White House adviser Jared Kushner has been claiming. It is yet another American imperial undertaking driven by the misguided notion that it is in the best interest of the American people that Israel remains the regional hegemon and is enabled to swallow the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories.



Taylor Report: Ontario NDP Convention: A Unanimous Resolution to Back GM Workers

Date Uploaded: 2019-06-17 20:18:33.0
Delegates to the recent Ontario New Democratic Party Convention began with a general proposal supporting GM workers in Oshawa. However as the matter was talked about more plainly, and delegates heard from people in the plant, the sentiment shifted to strong support of ideas of a Green New Deal and public ownership. On the last day it passed unanimously.
