The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 04/05/11

Air date: 
Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
At least they're consistent. Abe and Joe look at the GOP's latest assault on women.

 They're as predictable as the tides. Back in control of the U.S. House and statehouses across the land, the Republicans have returned to their age-old crusade -- smacking down uppity women everywhere. Abe and Joe look at the landslide of new laws and pending legislation  that is chipping away at women's equality and reproductive rights.

In the end, though, it all down to the same old patriarchal song -- fear of sexuality and fear of women.

Radical Music: Christy Moore

program date: 
Mon, 03/28/2011

 Today's show was peppered with selections of Christy Moore's music, including a fairly complete cut of Ordinary Man. Joe talked with Brad at the end of the show, and due to an engineering error we experienced almost 40-seconds of dead-air. It's been edited out of the online version, but we apologize if you endursed it live. Brad highlights Moore's internationalist taste in the music he covers and the causes he sings about, like Viva la Quince Brigada,but also the class-consciousness of songs like Ordinary Man.

Short Description: 
Robert Whitaker on Anatomy of an Epidemic

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Robert Whitaker, author of "Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America." Robert Whitaker probed into clinical studies in prestigious scientific journals, some dating back more than 50 years. He noticed a shocking anomaly. Psychiatric drugs have repeatedly been shown to worsen mental illness, to say nothing of the risks of liver damage, weight gain, elevated cholesterol and blood sugar, and reduced cognitive function they entail. The reality, he says, is that, because no one knows what causes mental illness, there’s no cure or palliation to be found in these pills.
