Strange and Rare Birds: Ralph Steadman & Ceri Levy

From the series Sea Change Radio host Alex Wise interviews Ceri Levy and Ralph Steadman. Confronted with the topic of extinct birds, filmmaker and author Ceri Levy took an unorthodox route to raising awareness. He enlisted the irreverent and intoxicating painter, Ralph Steadman, who's most famous as the partner-in-crime and illustrator for legendary gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson.

Levy and Steadman embarked on the project, Extinct Boids, and created a coffee table book that documents in colorful hilarity many species of birds that have ceased to exist on the earth, as well as some that only ever existed in the recesses of Steadman's unrestrained mind. A portion of the proceeds of the book go to supporting wildlife preservation through BirdLife International.

Josh Harper of the SHAC 7

KBOO's Jenka Soderberg speaks with former political prisoner Josh Harper, who spent three years in prison with 'terrorism' charges for giving a speech in which he explained how to send faxes of black paper to try to waste toner.

Harper is one of the SHAC 7 --  6 animal rights activists and the organization Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA) who were convicted on March 2, 2006, under the controversial Federal Animal Enterprise Protection Act. The Act punishes anyone who "physically disrupts" an animal enterprise. The charges stem from these activists' alleged participation in an international campaign to close the notorious product testing lab Huntingdon Life Sciences.

Community Artistry and Struggle

After the Watts riot of 1965 struck Los Angeles and the rest of the country, the Watts Writer's Workshop was created out of its smoldering ashes. It was here that writers such as Quincy Trouppe, Herbert Simmons, Eric Priestly and the poetry group known as The Watts Prophets hit the scene.

The Watts Prophets projected a raw, unflinching and brutally honest voice for their community. This group made up of artists Otis O'Solomom, Richard Dedeaux and Father Amde Hamilton, have been credited as the fathers of West Coast Rap. They have influenced and been sampled by hundreds of artists in the Hip Hop world such as DJ Quick, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog and DJ Shadow.

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher speaks with Timothy Noah, author of "The Great Divergence: America's Growing Inequality Crisis and What We Can Do about It."

For the past three decades, America has steadily become a nation of haves and have-nots. We have less equality of income than Venezuela, Kenya, or Yemen.

In "The Great Divergence", Timothy Noah explains not only how the Great Divergence has come about, but why it threatens American democracy—and most important, how we can begin to reverse it.

 

 

 

 

Klamath Basin Refuge - water conflicts and bird die-offs

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 04/30/2012

Hosted by Stephanie Potter

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Lower Klamath were drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge in Southern Oregon and Northern California is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month 10,000 or more birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade. The refuge is last in line for water, behind farmers and endangered fish, and as global warming heats up, scarce water supplies are likely to become even scarcer.

Tune in and join the discussion as a representative from the US Fish and Wildlife Service provides an initial overview, and then host Stephanie Potter is joined by Steve Pedery of Oregon Wild and Jim McCarthy of WaterWatch to talk about the issues and what needs to be done.

 
 
 

 

Klamath Wildlife Refuges -- for the birds?

Mon, 04/30/2012

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Klamath Basin were "reclaimed" and drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago--only 20% remain, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex on the Oregon/California border, is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month over 10,000 birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade. The refuges there are last in line for water, behind farmers and endangered fish, and as global warming heats up, scarce water supplies are likely to become even scarcer.  Matt Braun, spokesperson for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) provides an initial overview, and then host Stephanie Potter is joined by Steve Pedery of Oregon Wild and Jim  McCarthy  of WaterWatch.

(Unique among the more than 500 wildlife refuges in the National Wildlife Refuge System, the USFWS allows broad-scale commercial agriculture within the Tule Lake and Lower Klamath refuges that provides no benefit to wildlife. View interactive maps here to see how the Klamath Basin has been altered by development.)

CALIFORNIA 90420, a documentary on Oaksterdam University

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Fri, 04/27/2012

Host Jay Thiemeyer interviews filmmaker Dean Shull about his new documentary CALIFORNIA 90420 which  looks at Oaksterdam University, the nation's only college preparing students for work in the medical marijuana industry. The film shows at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland starting Friday, April 27th.

90420 focuses on the rapidly open and growing marijuana trade in the State of California. The film explores the burgeoning 'above ground' industry through the eyes of four, 20-something characters whose real lives are caught up in the changing green landscape.

The film follows faculty and students at California's Oaksterdam University, the nation's first college to prepare students for careers in the ever changing marijuana industry and the epicenter of legalization efforts in California. Recently federal agents from the DEA and IRS raided Oaksterdam University as well as the home of Oaksterdam University Founder, Richard Lee. Although medical marijuana is legal in California, it is still prohibited under federal law, leaving Oaksterdam in a precarious legal limbo.

CALIFORNIA 90420 is a New Coast Productions Film directed by Dean Shull (Waiting...) and produced and written by Dean Shull, Steve Roberts and Colin Goldman. The film features Dale Sky Jones and Oaksterdam co-founders Richard Lee and Jeff Jones.
