The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 03/01/11

Air date: 
Tue, 03/01/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe marvel at the outbreak of democracy in the American Midwest.

It's kinda nice when we remember we're strong. The extraordinary pro-worker demonstrations that started in Wisconsin two weeks ago -- and have since spread -- give lie to the conventional wisdom that the labor movement is dead. Wisconsin's new governor, Scott Walker, made busting the state public employees' union his first order of business. The union, along with sympathetic Wisconsinites of all stripes, busted him right back -- hard. And they show no sign of backing down.

And and Joe tackle the movement afoot among American workers, and look back at the history of organized labor in the United States, the (not-coincidental) rise of the middle class -- and at the decades-long campaign by the ruling class to cut them back down to size.

Thabiti talks to Jan about his new book "Ballers of the New School" (available at Talking Drum books) that looks at transformations in racial consciousness and performance in America in the realms of sports. Tabhti brings up W.E. DuBois notion of "the tunis" ("this idea of being a person of color and being an American, and that sense of that American identity being denied or not acknowledged") and how through sports/youth culture people of color have come to disavow it.

Voices from the Edge 02-10-11 Rethinking Psychiatry

program date: 
Thu, 02/10/2011

Rethinking psychiatry: a conversation with Robert Whitaker about a more compassionate mental health system

Our treatment of those in emotional distress manifests itself everyday. Too many Oregonians struggling with mental health issues can be found heavily medicated and warehoused. Or, they are turned out onto the streets to become the victims of crime or institutional violence as in the case of James Chasse. This is an issue that goes beyond public policy reform. It is one that calls for a fundamental reexamination of the "broken brain" model of psychiatry upon which those policies are based.

Bo Brown

program date: 
Wed, 02/02/2011

On this episode, we feature excerpts of a 2-hour interview we did with Rita “Bo” Brown.

Bo Brown is most well known to us as a member of The George Jackson Brigade, a Seattle based revolutionary group. To learn more about the George Jackson Brigade in general, we recommend the recently published books by Daniel Burton-rose, Guerilla USA, and Creating a Movement with Teeth.

Rita "Bo" Brown, was originally from Klamath, Oregon, and moved to Seattle in the 60’s to find community she’d lacked in Klamath. She soon found lesbian bars, and political activists. She became radicalized while in prison for a “social crime”, and was reading the George Jackson book “Soledad Brother” when he was murdered in California, in 1971.
