Violence Against Sex Workers
William Madden, Rogelio Guangelista, Eric Garcia

Violence against sex-workers happens daily and often goes unreported and unaddressed. Due to the nature of the profession, the growing population of sex-workers in Portland is forced to live outside the
everyday awareness of most residents. Because a blind eye is often turned towards this population it is difficult to provide care for survivors of violence and to prevent future attacks. This segment
highlights the Sex-Worker Outreach Coalition (SWOC) and Portland’s Bad
Date Line.

The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History

program date: 
Fri, 10/08/2010

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with historian Jill Lepore about her new book, "The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History."

Jill Lepore, Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer, offers a wry and bemused look at American history according to the far right, from the "rant heard round the world," which launched the Tea Party, to the Texas School Board's adoption of a social-studies curriculum that teaches that the United States was established as a Christian nation. The Whites of Their Eyes reveals that the far right has embraced a narrative about America's founding that is not only a fable but is also, finally, a variety of fundamentalism--anti-intellectual, antihistorical, and dangerously antipluralist.

Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper '41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at the New Yorker. Her books include New York Burning: Liberty, Slavery, and Conspiracy in Eighteenth-Century Manhattan, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; and The Name of War: King Philip's War and the Origins of American Identity, winner of the Bancroft Prize.

A debate/discussion of the proposed By-law changes on the KBOO member ballot with listener call-ins.

Moderator: Rebecca Nay.

Speaking in support of the changes: Ani Haines

Speaking in opposition to the changes: Daniel Flessas

Production note about this audio from the uploader Kathleen Stephenson: I did not have a recorded CD of this program, so I compiled the audio for this program from the KBOO air check, which is collected in segments. This audio was originally in four segments, which I strung together without editing. The program has a slight break of a second or two of missing audio between the segments. At each of those points you might notice a slight disconnect in what the speaker is saying because a second or two of audio was not captured by our automated air check.
