The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/19/13

Air date: 
Tue, 02/19/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe discuss the Keystone XL pipeline project

 Tens of thousands of protesters converged on the National Mall in Washington, DC on Sunday to demand action on climate change. Among their principal targets: the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from the Alberta Tar Sands in Canada to U.S. ports on the Gulf of Mexico.

The project is an environmental disaster waiting to happen. Aquifers, delicate ecosystems, and entire communities would be devastated in the event of a major leak. Small wonder, then, that a Senate majority recently voted in favor of the project, and that the President is at best ambivalent.

Abe and Joe look at the latest battleground between profit and preservation.

Jan Haaken talks with Mary Liz Thomson, the director of Who Bombed Judi Bari?.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/12/13

Air date: 
Tue, 02/12/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe discuss the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, and the ramifications for US Christianity.

 So the Pope resigned on Monday -- the first time that's happened in about 600 years -- leaving the world's 1.2 million Catholics without a leader. We can only hope that his successor will support contraception and refuse to protect pedophiles. But we can, with some accuracy, predict that the new Pope will be male.

In the wake of the Holy Father's abdication, Abe and Joe examine the state of modern Christianity, and ask listeners whether patriarchal religion is a help or a hindrance in the 21st Century.
