The guest is philosopher and mechanic Matthew B. Crawford. He is currently a fellow at the University of Virginia's Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture. He owns and operates Shockoe Moto, an independent motorcycle repair shop in Richmond, Virginia. He discusses his book "Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work." Crawford believes the manual trades offer the best hope of self-reliance and satisfaction at a time when many feel out of touch in an abstract world. Craftsmanship and the art of making things and fixing things is work that can not become obsolete or outsourced.

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Russell Leigh Sharman and Cheryl Harris Sharman, authors of Nightshift NYC. In the book they tell the stories of New York City nightshift workers. This ethnography of the night investigates familiar sites, such as diners, delis and taxis, as well as some unexpected corners of the night, such as a walking tour of homelessness in Manhattan and a fishing boat out of Brooklyn. The Sharmans show how the nightshift is more than simply out of phase, it is another social space altogether, highly structured, inherently subversive, and shot through with inequalities of power. NIGHTSHIFT presents the narratives of those who sleep too little and work too much, revealing the soul of a city hidden in the graveyard shift of 24-hour commerce when the sun goes down and the lights come up.

Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Peter Ward, author of "The Medea Hypothesis: Is Life on Earth Ultimately Self-Destructive?" Peter Ward will be speaking about his work tonight, Monday, May 11, 2009 at 07:30 PM at Powell's City of Books on Burnside.

In The Medea Hypothesis, renowned paleontologist Peter Ward proposes a revolutionary and provocative vision of life's relationship with the Earth's biosphere--one that has frightening implications for our future, yet also offers hope. Using the latest discoveries from the geological record, he argues that life might be its own worst enemy. This stands in stark contrast to James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis--the idea that life sustains habitable conditions on Earth. In answer to Gaia, which draws on the idea of the "good mother" who nurtures life, Ward invokes Medea, the mythical mother who killed her own children. Could life by its very nature threaten its own existence?

KBOO's Between the Covers reporter Jennifer Kemp and guest reporter Desmond Fuller interviewed So Much Pretty author Cara Hoffman. So Much Pretty is a harrowing, provakative and exhilerating recent novel dealing with small town politics and personal and societal accountability. Hoffman takes the reader to a faltering town in upstate New York where an ambitious Cleveland journalist, a family of DIY countercultural New Yorkers and their fierce and imaginative daughter, and members of the town's industrial agricultural elite all become entangled in the murder of a young, local woman, Wendy White. So Much Pretty is told from the vantage points of multiple characters, jumping back and forth in time, finally arriving at a startling conclusion. A murder mystery on the surface, So Much Pretty delves much deeper into issues of linguistic integrity, economics, rural and urban mentalities, the secret wonders and childhood, environmental degredation and sexual violence.

The Oregon Food Bank: Ending Hunger Through Dedication and Innovation

Wed, 06/27/2012

KBOO volunteers recently visited the Oregon Food Bank distribution center in North Portland to find out more about their efforts to end hunger. Food bank staff gave a guided tour of some facility highlights including the teaching gardens, the chicken coop, and demonstration kitchens. Volunteers contribute thousands of hours to support Food Bank activities, some of which are highlighted during the tour.

Food Bank projects highlighted in this program include:
Plant a Row for the Hungry
Learning Gardens
Community FEAST | Building Food Security
 
One of the Food Bank's many projects is The Waterfront Blues Festival which celebrates its twenty fifth anniversary this year beginning next Wednesday afternoon in downtown Portland. (KBOO will be broadcasting from the Blues Festival live). The festival is the largest fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank and 100 percent of gate donations and ticket sales directly benefit the Food Bank.

The five-day festival features Charlie Musselwhite, Galactic and the Steve Miller Band to name a few of the national acts highlighting this year’s events. Concert goers are asked to donate two cans of food and ten dollars to see an entire day’s lineup at the Blues Fest.

The Oregon Food Bank’s mission is to eliminate hunger and its root causes, because no one should be hungry. Since 1982, Oregon Food Bank has led the fight against hunger in Oregon and southwest Washington by collecting and distributing food through its regional network of neighborhood food pantries and regional food banks.

The Oregon Food Bank Network helps nearly one in five households fend off hunger. The Food Bank also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger through advocacy, nutrition education, garden education and helping communities strengthen local food systems.

********

Important information from the Oregon Food Bank website:

“As a result of growing levels of long-term unemployment, 260,000 people per month eat meals from emergency food boxes. Of those, 85,800 are children. For the first time ever, Oregon Food Bank distributed more than 1 million emergency food boxes in fiscal year 2010-11.”

“Growing levels of long-term unemployment have forced more and more people to seek emergency food assistance. 28 percent of adult emergency food box recipients are unemployed and looking for work, compared to only 20 percent in 2008.”

“A basic family budget — enough to cover the essential needs for a family of four — was $45,274 in 2007, while a full time job at Oregon's 2010 minimum wage provided only $17,500.”
