Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America

"Bundled securities...phony annual reports...bribed politicians...a crashed economy. These familiar-sounding conditions are just part of the legacy of the men who built the 19th century transcontinental railroads. In Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America, historian Richard White tells the story of corporate misconduct, incompetence and greed surrounding the construction of the transcontinental railroads that changed America. White reconstructs the convoluted paper trail that enriched Gilded Age capitalists and triggered three economic crisis in the late 19th century." Dave Mazza hosts.

Michael Ruppert: Can we shift out of our "economic Ponzi scheme?"

program date: 
Wed, 09/07/2011

"Unless you change how money works, you change nothing. We live in an infinite growth economy, in other words -- a ponzi scheme. Infinite growth on a finite planet is not possible. Those species who cannot get out of their paradigm are doomed to go extinct. Can we disengage from our paradigm?" Host Per Fagering speaks with Michael C. Ruppert, who is probably best known for having accurately predicted the 2008 financial crash, Peak Oil and its impacts. In April of this year he issued a compelling and detailed alert on Collapsenet that warned of a major economic implosion, followed by massive civil unrest starting in late July which is still unfolding and leading to “the collapse of human industrial civilization”.

Washington County: How to Make Cycling Work in the Suburbs and Beyond

On the September episode we'll be joined in the studio by the movers, shakers and hard workers that are figuring out new and improved ways to bring cycling to the suburbs and rural areas that surround them. While cities are built for short trips, the suburbs present new obstacles and challenges for designers and planners to make facilities available to the average Nike/soccer mom, Intel/BBQ dad, and safe for the whole family. Join us while we explore the creative ways these folks are finding solutions, or call in with your own stories and suggestions!
