Ani and Lyn talk about the audio release of the "Three Dead Prinices" with the author and producers

                          Fairy tales have long been way of communicating cultural memes and mores; a portal to imagination, and with imagination comes vision and change. Exterminating Angel Publisher Tod Davies asked  Danbert Nabacon, founding member of the anarcho-punk band Chumbawamba, to perform the daunting task of crafting a "Fairy Tale for Adults of All Ages".

Ani and Lyn discuss the Free Cascadia Movement with local activists

The ultimate conclusion to "act locally" is the secession of the People's Republic of Cascadia. Why? What would this mean? What sections of the planet would it cover? Will the old United States of America miss us? What about the people who were really here first? Can you be a bioregionalist without being a secessionist?

We talk with local Cascadia activists Alexander Baretich, Jason Thomas and Mario Haro live in studio about their work to free our beloved corner of the world, from what many consider the tyranny of an old order of annexation.

Know your rights! Listen to find out about grand juries and political harassment.

Ani and Lyn talk with Lauren Regan, the founder and executive director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), where she also serves as the staff attorney.

Political repression is on the rise.  Several homes have been raided in Portland, Olympia, and Seattle as part of a grand jury investigation, and the warrants served listed anarchist literature as something they were looking for.  Infiltrators and provocateurs have been used to target, disrupt and entrap activists.  These actions can have a chilling effect on activists and our communities.  

Knowing your rights is critically important.  What do you need to know to protect yourself?

Positively Revolting on 05-25-12 Police infiltration of radical movements-- really?

program date: 
Fri, 05/25/2012

Police infiltration of radical movements-- really? They do that? Listen in for a lively discussion!

Lyn and ani's guest will be Peg Millett, environmental activist, and member of the so-called Arizona Five

In 1989, Peg was arrested with other Earth Firsters in a sting operation, and served three years without parole.

With rumors flying about the resurgence of police / FBI infiltration and entrapment practices to break movements, we thought it is important to look at this piece of very relevant history, and see what lessons can be gained.  

This behavior by the police and powers that be is anything but new, or limited to a few isolated cases. Known as COINTELPRO in the 60s, the practice is occassionally stopped or thwarted by civil liberatarians, only to pop back up with a new code name and slightly modified practices a bit later.

How can organizers and activists be aware of this practice of the state and not fall victim to it?  Join our conversation with Peg Millet, and learn your history!

Positively Revolting on 05-04-12 Guest Michael Meade

program date: 
Fri, 05/04/2012

Lyn and Ani talk with Micheal Meade about his new spoken word CD set Inner Wisdom

Drawing upon myths and wisdom traditions from both the East and West, Micheal Meade finds and mines the ancient "roots of wisdom'. Rather than abstract knowlege or general truths, this "embodied wisdom" is shown to be both immediate and eternal, both personal and deeply soulful. The point here is the awakening of the Uniquness within each individual and their connection to the divine: which is to say our connection to each other.

this morning's program: host & speaker

I am a daily KBOO listener; however, while todays speaker while speaking from the heart regarding her dismay over the Afganistan theater of war, she makes vague statements, with great emotion, but few references to facts, which could easily be woven into her statements to make them more illuminating, it would give more power to her rally cries. Tt feels as though I am simply listening to hyperbole LIKE ON CREEPY FOX NEWS!  The Hosts of the program, similarly, are never probing or asking for clarification of the important issue, an important question to probe is: "why ARE we there?".  This program is dithering, and the speaker is bland, unconvincing of any knowledge base, boring, 10th rate.  Additionally, this is typical of the "Positively Revolting" hour, I usually never tune in when I know these two hosts will be on, bcs. it is never a provoking program, it rarely reveals or provides any new information about anything.  If this program has to continue to be on at all, consider putting it on late at night....it is pablum. 

Good Sista' Bad Sista' on the other hand was a great relief for me on Friday morning's programing, those women are sharp, witty and smart. 

Do not dumb us down with this progam "Positively Revolting", it is a zero.

Pay Equality

I recently heard the argument that the pay differential between men and women is actually fair. This idea is based on the situation of women living longer than men but work the same period of time. This argument claims that the total difference of pay between men and women equals the cost of additional medical care spent for women in their senior years.

For example, let's say a man and a woman work the same number of years (about 40), in the same job with the same responsibilities, and the man makes 10% more than the woman. Say that the job pays (in constant dollars) an average of $30,000 over the forty years. The man makes $1.2 million over this period and the woman makes $1.08 million.

The difference is $120,000. Now at age 60, a man will generally live to be 75 and a woman will live to be 85. Most medical expenses are incurred in the last ten years of live. These costs are paid mostly by public funds through MediCare. The pay_inequality_is_fair argument holds that this $120,000 pay differential is used by society to pay the additional medical expenses that women use and men don't.

I realize that this argument will float like a lead zeppelin on the Positively Revolting community. However, you may want to be aware of it so you don't get blindsided by it in a public debate on the issue.

Thank you,
Alan in Portland

Where did Ani go?

Where did Ani go? I miss her!

I'm here, honest

Hi there, Melodie and I are hosting alternating weeks on Friday mornings, now. I hope you had a chance to hear my program with Norman Solomon last Friday, 11/7, but if you didn't, you can hear it online-- there is a link to the audio on this program page. I will host again on the 21st. Thanks so much for listening! with love & solidarity, ani

woo hoo!

Glad you're still involved in the show. Thanks for all that you do for our community!

much love, m

Wow... How about some positive feedback?

I must have picked a good week to start listening to KBOO. My unhealthy addiction to KPOJ has been shaken. What stirred me to radio hop was the recent clubbing and scrubbing of morning show co-host Heidi Tauber.

Thankfully (along with news I'm not hearing elsewhere) I struck gold with back to back to back mornings of call in shows which were right up my avenue. On Wednesday Barbara Bernstein and friends of the 40 Mile Loop took me on a bike ride down memory lane. The next day, Dave and Jo Ann took on the very difficult but extremely important topic of race and justice in America. I found the candor of the hosts and callers-in to be a much needed breath of fresh air.

Yesterday was quite synergenic. I didn't think anything Positively Revolting would be my pint of brew, but the community of thought that came together was positively revolutionary. I'm still not entirely successful in finding joy amidst the madness, but the range of emotions I was able to experience during the show were a welcome departure from depression. Together we just may succeed... or at least, survive.

KBOO, I think I love U. (And Jeff always has sumpin' to say to go along with that sexy voice! I'm glad he seems to hop around the dial too.)
