The video "The Story of STUFF" adapted to radio--a good lecture with sound effects. Annie Leonard gives a concise, comprehensive, and Progressive overview of our global capitalist system of making & selling goods. Of the 5 textbook stages--extraction, production, marketing, consumption, and disposal--none is sustainable; each is killing people (including us) and the planet. Introduction by KD.
Produced for WWUH-FM, "Public Alternative Radio" at the University of Hartford. Video by Annie Leonard available free at Feedback to

Song--Chumbawamba, "The Good Ship Lifestyle"

ADVICE--Annie Leonard's chirpy voice is an acquired taste. Persevere. Her talk is so good that, after a couple of minutes, I stopped noticing her voice, so engrossed was I in what she was saying.

SERIES OVERVIEW -- Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want ... and what they're trying to make us settle for. "Date recorded" = date of first scheduled broadcast.
