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.

Fighting Coal Transport Through the Pacific Northwest: Reform and Revolution.

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Fri, 08/17/2012

Oregon and Washington have dramatically reduced coal-powered energy generation. As a result coal companies are pushing to export tens of millions of tons of coal from Montana and Wyoming, through Pacific Northwest ports, to Asian markets. The coal would pass through dozens of communities in Oregon and Washington by rail, barge, or ship. Mercury and other toxins from Asian fired coal returns to the Columbia valley as blowback and acid rain.

KBOO's Joe Meyer presents interviews with:
 

Phil Rigdon, Deputy Director for Yakama Nation Department of Natural Resources - http://www.yakamanation-nsn.gov/

Dan Serres the Conservation Director at Columbia Riverkeeper - http://columbiariverkeeper.org/

Paul Cienfuegos a rights based organizer out of Portland, Oregon - http://paulcienfuegos.com/

Bonnie Meltzer, a neighborhood activist - http://www.facebook.com/NorthPortlandCoalCommittee

 The show's emphasis is on what humans can do about it and listens through the lens of reform and revolution.

The music for the show is 'Paradise' by John Prine performed by Johnny Cash.

Aria Minu-Sepehr on "We Heard the Heavens Then", his memoir of a boy in revolutionary Iran

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 08/13/2012

 Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Aria Minu-Sepehr about his book We Heard the Heavens Then, a memoir of a boy in revolutionary Iran.  Seen through the eyes of a ten year old with unusual access to the two poles of his society – modern and traditional – the tale recounts the rising tension, collision, and eventual fallout of the split.

Following the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979 and the purges that targeted the author’s class, Aria Minu-Sepehr sought refuge in the United States. The hostage crisis, a year later, would prove that the edicts of the Iranian Revolution could impact the global community and destroy the goodwill of one people for another. Aria Minu-Sepehr has worked to bridge that divide. He has lectured on issues concerning Iranian culture and U.S. foreign policy, and created and directed Forum for Middle East Awareness at Susquehanna University, where he also taught world and Middle Eastern literature. In 2007, an excerpt of We Heard the Heavens Then was awarded the John Guyon Literary Non-Fiction Prize. Aria Minu-Sepehr lives with his family in Oregon.
