The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/22/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/22/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Is Oregon an anti-immigrant state? A new study suggests it is.

A study commissioned by a consortium of Northwestern public radio stations says that a majority of Northwesterners -- Oregonians, Washingtonians and Idahoans, or whatever they call themselves -- agree with the anti-immigrant law passed recently in Arizona. In Oregon, that support is at 61 percent.

What does it mean? Is anti-immigrant sentiment more widespread than we thought? And what is that sentiment exactly? Fear, born of cultural ignorance? Economic anxiety? Good ol' racism? A toxic brew of all three? With Joe on vacation, Abe leads the discussion.

Guilty Except For Insanity

Host Wendy Webb speaks with local filmmaker Jan Haaken, professor of psychology at PSU, about her new film, "Guilty Except For Insanity," which tells the stories of patients living in the Salem State Hospital. The film illustrates a broken American system in which some people have to commit crimes to get psychiatric help. The film portrays the deeply human dilemmas behind media images of the criminally insane, and probes the consequences of the American medical management of madness.
