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?

One of the Council's goals is to “. . protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer through projects that educate and nurture our children.” Addressing the Grandmothers Council for the first time, Grandmother Maria Alice Campos Freire said, “I believe we have all been guided to be here and we will be guided to do what we came here to do. We cannot say we are of this race or that one. We have all been everything in our many lives, and now our paths cross for us to connect from many different faiths and cultures. But we are all the same flame in life.”
