Host Paul Roland with guest Jacqueline Keeler on racist stereotypes, sports mascots and more

program date: 
Wed, 05/21/2014
Native Americans have been calling for the end to the use of racist stereotypes and sports mascots for decades, with some slow and steady progress. Many schools have retired their Native mascots, and laws (as in Oregon) have been passed banning them. Yet powerful franchises like the Washington Redskins, Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians have firmly resisted any change or recognition that anything is wrong with their team names and mascots. 55:17 minutes (50.62 MB)

Old Mole Variety Hour for May 26, 2014

program date: 
Mon, 05/26/2014


Jan Haaken hosts this Memorial Day edition of the Mole in which we remember not only those who have fallen on battlefields, but those who have died from lack of access to medical care.  We also hear a conversation about how good our public schools are, giving the lie to those who run them down so they can privatize them.  All this, plus a commentary about how memories are made and remade.

Medicare for All Oregon

This Memorial Day, we might pause to remember those who have died in Oregon for lack of health insurance. As Chris Lowe notes on the Health Care for All Oregon webpage, "A 2009 estimate by Physicians for a National Health Program- connected doctors was that there were about 560 such deaths in Oregon that year. The annual order of magnitude is probably the same today. In the next few years it may decline a bit due to OHP expansion and Cover Oregon coverage, but there will still be hundreds of such deaths per year."
