The Digital Divide: Bioethics and Beyond Nuclear

Join us this month on The Digital Divide. Today we'll hear a TED talk by bioethicist Paul Root Wolpe. He'll describe an astonishing series of recent bio-engineering experiments, from hybrid pets to mice that grow human ears. And he asks: isn't it time to set some ground rules? You can go to the KBOO website and not only listen online but watch the original TED video. If you hate seeing animals and insects being tortured and experimented on, don't watch.

Ron Coleman, teacher and trainer with the Hearing Voices Movement

Are voices real -- or are they just auditory hallucinations and sign of mental illness? Is it best to try to control and get rid of voices -- or listen and discover their meaning? After being sexually abused by a priest and in grief at the death of his first wife, Scottish advocate Ron Coleman started hearing voices, was labeled a chronic schizophrenic and spent six years in psychiatric hospitals. Ron describes his remarkable recovery, and how he became a renowned teacher and leading trainer with the Hearing Voices movement in the UK. http://www.workingtorecovery.co.uk/

Positively Revolting 07-01-11 Freedom

program date: 
Fri, 07/01/2011

As we approach the 4th of July, Lyn and Ani question what freedom means. 

What does it mean to live free?

Do we see ourselves as independent? Is that even desirable, or is it a part of the problem: the myth of the rugged individual—feeding alienation and isolation? 

How do we recognize ways we’ve clipped our wings--- when is this actually a necessary thing?

How do we limit ourselves with our perceptions of what’s possible?
