Oh Noes! Stephanie Coontz on "the end of men hypothesis"

program date: 
Mon, 10/15/2012

 Bill Resnick talks with Stephanie Coontz about the "end of men hypothesis" that she argues conflates two trends: greater equality  and opportunity for women, on the one hand, and the all-around explosion of inequality in the USA that hits men particularly hard because of the changing expectations around employment. They talk about the realities behind the dubious claims that we're heading for a matriarchy.

 
Stephanie Coontz teaches history and family studies at Evergreen State College.

Jan Haaken hosts this episode of the Old Mole Variety Hour, about 20 minutes shorter because of the membership-drive. Through-out the show we hear some of the music of local hip-hop activist-artist, Mic Crenshaw. Jan mentioned his appearance at the Paid Sick Days Now rally, a campaign of the Industrial Workers of the World and Food and Retail Workers United, which appeared on the Old Mole a couple months ago.

Clint Werner discusses his book: Marijuana, Gateway to Health--how Cannabis protects us from disease

The Radiozine welcomes Clint Werner, author of Marijuana, Gateway to Health. In this recently published book, Werner presents the science that supports cannabis as a potent medicine in treating cancer, Alzheimer's, and other diseases. He also takes a hard look at the history and politics behind the criminalization of marijuana. Werner's information is especially pertinent this fall, as Oregonians consider voting on Measure 80 and whether to legalize and regulate marijuana. Hosted by Stephanie Potter.

"This book should be required reading for all medical professionals, elected officials, and everyone interested in health and wellness."  --Andrew Weil, M.D.

 Reading the Fine Print: An Interview with David Cay Johnston

When you receive your monthly phone bill, utility statement, or 401(k) summary, there are often myriad fees and charges included that defy understanding by the average consumer. We assume them to be legitimate costs for using these services, but as Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author David Cay Johnston writes in his new book, there's plenty that is illegitimate about them.
