Replay: Understanding An Intersectional Framework of Economic Justice for People Living With Disabilities

February 03, 2023 15:45 - 20 minutes - 18.5 MB

As many as 23 million people in the United States are struggling with long Covid. The sometimes debilitating symptoms include brain fog, fatigue, difficulty breathing, and depression or anxiety.  But almost a year after the Biden administration released guidance stating that people with long Covid can be included under the Americans with Disabilities Act, receiving benefits has been a struggle. Even before the pandemic, roughly one in four Americans were living with a disability. And while...

Brad Onishi is a professor of religion and a former evangelical Christian.

Replay: Debunking Gender Roles in the Animal Kingdom

February 02, 2023 14:00 - 21 minutes - 19.5 MB

According to zoologist Lucy Cooke, scientists have traditionally defined females in the animal kingdom with Victorian, sexist stereotypes. In her new book, “Bitch: On the Female of the Species,” Cooke debunks these outdated notions using examples throughout the animal kingdom of females breaking out of their passive roles and displaying aggression, competitiveness, and promiscuity. We spoke with Lucy Cooke about looking at female animals with a new lens, one that shows that males and femal...

Child Poverty Was Cut In Half-- Why Stop Now?

February 01, 2023 17:00 - 13 minutes - 12.4 MB

SNAP or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is one of the most critical policy tools we have to address hunger and poverty in the U-S. And during the pandemic, it was a literal lifeline.  Congress temporarily increased SNAP benefits giving a boost of 15 percent to everyone who needed it and allowing all families to max out their eligibility based on the size of the family.  This month, the nearly three-year boost to a benefit used by more than 41 million Americans will end.  And ...

The Wellness to Qanon Pipeline

January 31, 2023 20:58 - 17 minutes - 16.1 MB

This past month, millions of Americans will have taken up new fitness, health and wellness pursuits. There is typically no shortage of influencers and so-called gurus ready to capitalize on this reliably-annual influx of customers, but that’s taken a more sinister turn in these recent, turbulent years. We discuss the increasing convergence of right-wing conspiracies with wellness circles, how authoritarianism became embedded in the modern history of yoga, and how to practice wellness with aw...

The Future of Police Abolition

January 31, 2023 15:46 - 20 minutes - 18.6 MB

On January 7, Memphis Police officers pepper sprayed and brutally beat photographer and avid skateboarder Tyre Nichols. Nichols complained of shortness of breath, and waited 22 minutes before an ambulance arrived to transport him – in critical condition – to a local hospital. He died on January 10. Memphis police chief Ceralyn Davis called the beating of Nichols a “failure of basic humanity.”  This brutal killing has renewed public discussions of police abolition. We talk with Professor ...

Reflecting on History and Remembering Victims on International Holocaust Remembrance Day

January 27, 2023 19:05 - 28 minutes - 26.5 MB

January 27th marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day in 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp, was liberated.

Transformative Takeaway: Saving NOLA's Bike Share Program

January 27, 2023 17:00 - 8 minutes - 7.84 MB

New Orleans launched their bike share program, Blue Bikes, in 2017 in partnership with a for-profit bike share company called Social Bicycles, beginning with 700 pedal bicycles. Geoff Coats was hired to run the program.  Soon after, Uber bought out Social Bicycles (which by then had changed its name to Jump) and Blue Bikes flourished: by 2020, the fleet size was upgraded and almost doubled to 1,350 pedal assist e-bikes. But then, the pandemic hit. Uber paused the program, and then spun it o...

Why Titus Kaphar Won't "Shut Up and Paint"

January 26, 2023 17:00 - 15 minutes - 14.6 MB

The paintings produced by artist Titus Kaphar have become some of the most coveted pieces of art in America. His paintings – which reimagine the people included in American history – are displayed in museums from Seattle to New York City, and at auction, they’ve fetched hundreds of thousands of dollars. But the message of the Michigan-born artist’s work – which critically examines how art historically excludes Black and Brown faces – is a source of discomfort for many art collectors, dealer...

Cop City: Forest Defender Killed by Police in Forest Raid

January 25, 2023 21:53 - 13 minutes - 12.2 MB

In a recent interview on The Takeaway, Kamau Franklin said, "What seems to be underreported is that even at the beginning of the protest against Cop City, when people were doing demonstrations and marches on city sidewalks, we would have at the end of those demonstrations, police jumping in the middle of them and arresting people for just standing or talking after demonstrations. And they've come in during demonstrations. They've used pepper spray. They've violently thrown people to the grou...

Are We Being Gaslit on Gas Stoves?

January 25, 2023 21:50 - 13 minutes - 11.9 MB

When a debate over gas stove regulation blew up this month, it revealed that Americans have a deep affinity for these kitchen appliances. But like “natural” gas, it’s all rooted in marketing that the gas industry has fostered over decades as part of its efforts to combat the rise of electric and renewable energy. Research into the health risks of gas stoves as a source of indoor air pollution is growing, and the effects of methane on climate change are already well-established. We speak wi...

Wajahat Ali, columnist for The Daily Beast, and author of Go Back to Where You Came From: And Other Helpful Recommendations on How to Become American, begins his book with humorous responses to “fan mail.”  “Go back to where you came from!” writes one fan, to which Wajahat responds “Fremont, California! I’d love to but I can’t afford the rent. I’m priced out.”   Wajahat’s book highlights the struggles and triumphs of growing up in a white America with immigrant parents from Pakistan.  He c...

TV Shows Are Still Missing the Mark On Abortion

January 22, 2023 17:00 - 11 minutes - 10.7 MB

How has entertainment television in the U.S. reckoned with the reversal of Roe vs. Wade? A report from Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) at the University of California—San Fransisco found that for the first time in a decade, at least one third of shows in 2022 actually depicted barriers to abortion access. While it's progress, it's still a far cry from reality — for most of the past decade, the majority of women of reproductive age have lived in states that are hostile...

January 21, 2023 17:00 - 11 minutes - 10.9 MB

Omegle is an online platform where strangers from across the world are paired together for video and text chats.  In March of 2022, The United Nations’ Human Rights Council launched a special cyber investigation into the platform and found that many adult men use the site as a space for sexual activity. The site, which collects no identifying information from its users, is grappling with allegations of enabling child predation. Freelance journalist David Alm reported on Omegle for Mother...

January 20, 2023 17:00 - 14 minutes - 13.1 MB

Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn — the duo behind the electronic pop outfit, Sylvan Esso — have been creative partners for over a decade. Their fourth and latest album, "No Rules Sandy," sees them attempt to shed the pressures of global fame, get out of their own heads, and break the rules they realized had been holding them back.  "No Rules Sandy" was created primarily over the course of three weeks in LA, the fastest Sylvan Esso has ever made a record — spontaneous and instinctive.

North Carolina's Status as Abortion Safe Haven In Jeopardy

January 20, 2023 16:43 - 13 minutes - 12.3 MB

The North Carolina General Assembly convened last week for the start of its new legislative session. Republicans sit on the cusp of a supermajority that would give them the power to override any veto handed down from the Democratic Governor Roy Cooper. And they’ve got their eyes set on abortion. Some of that support could come from the Democratic side of the house. In 2019 and 2021 two abortion restriction bills were vetoed by the Governor, but not before receiving support from members of ...

January 19, 2023 17:00 - 13 minutes - 12.1 MB

Lawmakers in the 118th Congress now face a clash in the House of Representatives that could bring the American economy to the brink of crisis — the fight over raising the debt ceiling.

Egg-onomics: Why are the Eggs so Expensive?

January 18, 2023 17:00 - 26 minutes - 24.4 MB

In December, the index for eggs rose 11.1 percent, meaning there was some serious “egg-flation.” Eggs saw the highest month-over-month inflation of any expenditure category, so why are the prices of eggs going up? Chickens. The egg, bird, and the food have played multiple roles in the lives of African American women. Chickens have provided food and a source of income for many Black families, and helped women define and exert themselves in a hostile and racist society. The chicken and the ...

Why Does Broadway Keep Doing Drag?

January 18, 2023 17:00 - 19 minutes - 17.7 MB

A musical adaptation of the 1959 movie, "Some Like It Hot," is now on Broadway. The movie has been acclaimed as one of the best comedy films of all time, but much of that comedy relies on the trope of men using drag as a disguise. It's a trope that Broadway is no stranger to, as evidenced by recent adaptations of "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Tootsie." The "Some Like It Hot" musical attempts to alleviate this tension between historic and often harmful portrayals of drag and the rich reality of drag ...

Cop City

January 17, 2023 23:08 - 29 minutes - 26.7 MB

In Atlanta, Georgia, community activists remain locked in a nearly 2-year struggle against the development of a massive police training center in a forest just outside the city, dubbed "cop city."  Only weeks after George Floyd’s murder in 2020 and the 2020 police killing of Rayshard Brooks, calls to "demilitarize" and "defund the police" amassed all over the country. It was difficult for Atlanta, as it was for many cities across the country. The city’s 14 percent increase  in homicides was...

The Sounds of Blackness

January 16, 2023 21:11 - 20 minutes - 18.5 MB

Negro spirituals and Freedom songs carry within them expressions of joy, pain and the realities of living as a Black person in the United States. These songs provided the sonic background of the Civil Rights Movement. Today, a new sound provides the sonic background in the ongoing movement for Black liberation and agency: Trap music. Trap music traces its roots to the heart of the Black American south. It’s part of the continuing evolution of Hip-Hop in America with lyrics that paint a pic...

What's the 411 on 411?

January 15, 2023 17:00 - 9 minutes - 8.26 MB

411, the number that embedded itself into our vocabulary as a synonym for “information” is going the way of the dinosaur. AT&T announced the end of the service this month for their landline customers.

New FDA Rules on Medication Abortion Are Still Full of Red Tape

January 14, 2023 17:00 - 11 minutes - 10.2 MB

It’s been more than six months since The Supreme Court’s opinion in Dobbs overturned Roe v. Wade in June. Since then, anti-abortion activists have continued to try and restrict access to abortion care, even in states where abortion is legal. And The Food and Drug Administration and its oversight of the abortion medication, Mifepristone, has been one of their targets.  Medication abortions account for half of abortions in the United States, and Mifepristone is the first of two pills used in ...

January 13, 2023 17:00 - 8 minutes - 8.06 MB

Since July, according to data from SAMHSA, calls and texts to the lifeline have risen significantly before the adoption of 9-8-8.

When Women’s Survival is Criminalized

January 13, 2023 17:00 - 19 minutes - 18.2 MB

Many women who encounter domestic abuse and are caught up in our criminal legal system are punished — both for when they fight back and when they don't. "Criminalized survival" refers to this highly gendered and racialized phenomenon, and we see it in stories of self-defense, like Tracy McCarter and Pieper Lewis. Criminalized survival is also, in many states, essentially codified into law with "failure to protect" laws that punish parents who allegedly did not protect their children from ab...

Afghan Girls Refuse to Give Up on Education

January 12, 2023 17:00 - 13 minutes - 12.5 MB

It’s been more than 3 weeks since the Taliban government in Afghanistan announced that women were banned from attending colleges and universities. It’s yet another gut-wrenching — but not unexpected — reversal of the regime’s initial promises to respect women’s rights. The college ban effectively means that the highest level of education most Afghan girls will now be able to receive is 6th grade. We speak with Shabana Basij-Rasikh, co-founder and president of the School of Leadership, Afgha...

January 11, 2023 17:00 - 12 minutes - 11.7 MB

On Sunday, thousands of supporters of Brazil’s far-right former president Jair Bolsonaro attacked the nation’s highest seats of power in the capital Brasília, just a week after President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was inaugurated on Jan. 1.

Reparations for Black America Is Becoming More than A Possibility

January 09, 2023 22:13 - 13 minutes - 12.3 MB

Last week, marked the 100-year anniversary of the race riots of 1923 in Rosewood, FL. After a white woman accused a Black man of assaulting her, a white mob destroyed the town and displaced hundreds of Black middle- and working-class families. This rural town was one of several Black communities in the US that suffered racial violence and destruction, and the violence resulted in the loss of economic opportunity and inequality for generations of people of color.  The massacre was dramatiz...

What's Going On in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives?

January 08, 2023 17:00 - 11 minutes - 10.1 MB

Earlier this week, Republicans in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives backed Democratic State Representative Mark Rozzi as their candidate of choice for Pennsylvania House Speaker.

Taking Care of the Caregivers

January 07, 2023 17:00 - 12 minutes - 11 MB

 The CDC reports “25-percent of U-S adults” serve as caregivers to those who need support and assistance. Caregivers need support, too.

We talk with Karen Warner Schueler, author of The Sudden Caregiver about what it means to be a caregiver, and how those who support others can find the support they need for themselves.

Is Facebook Responsible in Ethiopia?

January 07, 2023 17:00 - 11 minutes - 10.5 MB

Two Ethiopians recently filed a lawsuit against Meta, Facebook's parent company, alleging that the company not only allowed hate speech to spread online during the country's recent civil war — it prioritized hate speech. Facebook’s content moderation practices have been under scrutiny for years, particularly after whistleblower Frances Haugen revealed internal documents that showed Facebook was well aware that its practices for finding and removing hate speech in a number of countries — incl...
