On the August 14, Thursday, 10:30 a.m. Radiozine, Emily Young interviews Yvonne Simmons of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, and a founder in Portland of the Clothesline Project, a visual display by women survivors of violence. Also discussed: Women's Equality Day, coming up on Tuesday, August 26th.
Host Emily Young interviews Joel Berg, author of "All You Can Eat: How Hungry is America?"
In his new book Joel Berg looks at the growing number of people who are hungry in America. He takes to task politicians who remain inactive; the media, which ignores hunger except during holidays and hurricanes; and the food industry, which makes fattening, artery-clogging fast food more accessible to the nation’s poor than healthy fare. He even chides organic food gurus such as Michael Pollan and Alice Waters for saying that the recent increase in food costs is a positive development, an assertion Berg deems to be class biased.
