Bill Resnick talks with urban naturalist Mike Houck of the Audubon Society and the Urban Greenspaces Institute. They discuss many of the issues around making Portland part of a natural, sustainable environment in this two-part interview. We hear Part 1 on this program; Part 2 will be aired next week.
Laurie Mercier explores how political discussions often fail to distinguish between lies that are trivial, like John Edwards's, and lies that have global, catastrophic consequences -- like those of the Bush administration.
Tom Becker conducts a lesson in labor history and reveals that the first labor union was formed in Philadelphia, and with it, the first labor oriented political party on August 11, 1828. Tom reads from Moral Visions and Material Ambitions: Philadelphia Struggles to Define the Republic by A. Kristen Foster. It was re-published in 2004 and is available at the Portland State Library.
Hosted by Tom Becker, this program discusses green and sustainable cities, J.M. Coetzee's South African boyhood, being distracted from important lies by trivial ones, and how the first labor party was born 180 years ago in Philadelphia.
