Program: 
Radiozine
Air date: 
Fri, 10/23/2015 - 11:30am - 12:00pm
Short Description: 
Alfred McCoy on Obama's Geopolitical Strategy for Containing China from TUC Radio

The historian Professor McCoy is an expert on U.S. foreign policy, the Philippines, Southeast Asia; global drug trafficking; and CIA covert operations.

He teaches at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and his September 2015 piece in Tom Dispatch Grandmaster of the Great Game: Obama's Geopolitical Strategy for Containing China, stands in total contrast to the current views of media pundits as well as the Republican party.

They see Obama as weak, clueless, and indecisive in matters of foreign policy. McCoy provocatively places Obama among the limited number of presidents and public figures whose geopolitical skills - if he is allowed to succeed - will have transformed America s global role.

A Conversation with Helena Norberg-Hodge

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Thu, 02/19/2015
Helena Norberg-Hodge interviewed by Paul Roland from her home in Australia. The author, activist and film producer will be in Portland for the Economics of Happiness Conference February 27 to March 1.  
 http://www.localfutures.org/event/the-economics-of-happiness-conference-portland/:  
From Wikipedia:
Norber-Hodge is an analyst of the impact of the global economy on cultures and agriculture worldwide, a pioneer of the localization movement, and the articulator of the core ideas of 
Counter-development. She is producer and co-director of the award-winning documentary, The Economics of Happiness and is the founder and director of Local Futures/International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC).[1] Based in the US and UK, with subsidiaries in SwedenGermanyAustralia, and Ladakh, Local Futures' mission is to examine the root causes of our social and environmental crises, while promoting more sustainable and equitable patterns of living in both North and South. Its activities include The Economics of Happiness, The Ladakh Project,[1] and Global to Local Outreach.

Helena Norberg-Hodge is co-director and producer of The Economics of Happiness, a 68 minute documentary made by Local Futures in 2011. The film describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, all around the world people are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance—and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.

The Economics of Happiness has been shown around in the world and been featured in more than twenty film festivals. It won Best in Show at the Cinema Verde Environmental Film and Arts Festival in Florida and Best Director Award at the EkoFilm Festival in the Czech Republic.
Ms. Norberg-Hodge is on the International Commission on the Future of Food and Agriculture, launched with the support of the government of Tuscany. She is also a member of the editorial board of The Ecologist magazine and a co-founder of the International Forum on Globalisation and the Global Ecovillage Network
.

The Nonpocalypse

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Fri, 12/21/2012

Friday is the 2012 Winter Solstice.  There's been years of sensational hype about the date, much based on the Mayan Long Count Calendar cycle and some supposed apocalypse.

But the claims are based on bad archaeology, bad astronomy and bad geology.

Hosted by Andrew Geller, in this program, there is taped audio from both  David Stuart, the Linda and David Schele Professor of Mesoamerican Art and Writing at the University of Texas at Austin, and Mark Van Stone, a Maya expert specializing in Maya Hieroglyphs and calligraphy.  They discussed the complete lack of basis in the Mayan calendar system to support any apocalyptic claims this Friday.

Andrew next speaks live with Kristine Larsen, professor of physics and astronomy at Central Connecticut State University, to debunk the astronomical and physical sciences claims.

Storyteller, mythologist and author Michael Meade will join in last to provide background and context regarding apocalypse, apocalypsis (the original term) and why claims regarding 'the end of the world' hold such sway in certain cultures. Michael latest book is Why the World Doesn't End.

Oregon Coast Bridges

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 12/10/2012

Portland preservationist Ray Allen has written a book about the many bridges of the Oregon Coast Highway. The coast has been a travel route for thousands of years, but it wasn't until the 1930's that a government-sponsored project to build five major bridges was completed, linking North and South, and changing the local economy forever. One man, engineer/architect Conde McCullough, was primarily responsible for the success of the project. Ray Allen talks about the beauty of McCullough's concrete arch bridges, and the challenge of building in remote, rugged locations. He enables us to compare this accomplishment with contemporary challenges such as the Columbia Crossing on Interstate 5.
