To change the world, we have to change the power structures that we live under. Here's how. We also have to recognize what's at stake: Everything that matters. So... a few people feel like that have the authority to risk everything that matters. They do this through war. They do this through a global empire centered around oil. They do this by dictating what we will eat and whether we will have clean water to drink. They must be stopped! Here's how.

When I think of a greenhouse, I envision small seeds sprouting roots and then green shoots slowly rising toward the sunlight. The progress to grow may be slow at first but soon becomes rapidly transformational as the plant drinks in the nourishment of the heat, moisture, and sunlight in the greenhouse cocoon. Our guest this week, Hannah Rose Neuhauser, is the co-founder and program director of The Young Author’s Greenhouse, an organization inspired by the 826 Valencia writing organization for children and teens launched by author Dave Eggers. The Louisville greenhouse, located in the Portland neighborhood, nurtures student writers in an imaginative writing space which includes a storefront called The Opposite Shop where you can find jars of sunshine and magic fish scales. But moving from the Shop through the portal into the organization’s writing center, young writers enter a world where they are taken seriously by mentors who question and instill confidence. One of the coolest programs offered by The Young Author’s Greenhouse is an annual song-writing event with Jim James, leader of the rock band My Morning Jacket, and Teddy Abrams, the young hip conductor of the Louisville Orchestra. Hannah Rose tells us what book she read in college that inspired her to start this nonprofit journey, what skill is more important than writing for volunteers with the Young Author’s Greenhouse, and what perk of the program can entice even reluctant young writers to put their words on paper. Books mentioned in this episode: 1- A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers 2- If you Can See the Stars, There is Still Light by The Young Author's Greenhouse 3- Into the Wolf-Dark Shadows by The Young Author's Greenhouse 4- Know My Name by Chanel Miller 5- The Last Wish by Andrezej Sapkowski (Short Stories) 6- Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland by Patrick Radden Keefe 7- Bluets by Maggie Nelson 8- The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson Online Article mentioned: Flattened by the Curve www.mcsweeneys.net/columns/flattened-by-the-curve TV shows mentioned: 1- Derry Girls on Netflix 2- Sex Education on Netflix 3- Schitt's Creek on Hulu 4- Seinfeld on Hulu

We all had big plans for our quarantine free time, right? Maybe we wanted to Marie Kondo organize the whole house, learn how to make beautiful loaves of bread, or begin training for that marathon you’ve had on your bucket list. Our guest today, Robin Weiss, had a different kind of quarantine goal. She was determined to revitalize her reading life. This mother of 9 who is also a professor of public health as well as a childbirth expert and doula, fell out of love with reading when she attended grad school. In the intervening years, her knowledge of new titles and authors got stuck in a time warp where she left off in the 1990s. So, she formed an online quarantine bookclub with fellow readers across the country to help get her literary groove back. Robin talks to us about what past favorite authors she is happy to discover have published new books in recent years, what benefits the group gets from meeting weekly versus monthly, whether her bookclub is experiencing trauma bonding, and what happens when the quarantine is over. Books discussed in this episode: 1- The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield 2- It By Stephen King 3- The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger 4- On The Beach by Nevil Shute 5- The Charm School by Nelson DeMille 6- The Gold Coast by Nelson DeMille 7- The General's Daughter by Nelson DeMille 8- The Bone Collector by Jeffrey Deaver 9- The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski (short stories) 10- Sword of Destiny by Andrzej Sapkowski (short stories) 11- Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski (novel) 12- The Murmur of Bees by Sofia Segovia 13- The Braid by Laetitia Colombani You can find us on FB, instagram (@perksofbeingabookloverpod) and on our blog site at www.perksofbeingabooklover.com Perks airs on Forward Radio 106.5 FM and forwardradio.org every Wednesday at 6 pm, Thursdays at 6 am and 12 pm.

With the pandemic raging, your host, Justin Mog, takes a close look at the state of reproductive health care access in our Commonwealth with Meg Stern, Support Fund Director at Kentucky Health Justice Network. Meg started volunteering in abortion access in Kentucky almost 20 years ago. As a Louisville native, Meg has a strong background in grassroots organizing with Louisville Clinic Escorts, The Fairness Campaign, and Louisville Showing Up for Racial Justice. In this conversation, we talk about the work of KHJN, why it is so essential and how the definition of “essential” is evolving in the pandemic.

On this week’s Truth To Power, we gather around the microphones to collectively envision a sustainable, just transportation system for Louisville! Forward Radio programmers, Justin Mog (Sustainability Now!), Hart Hagan (The Climate Report & Let’s Talk), and Ruth Newman (Election Connection) are joined in the virtual studio by Jackie Green, owner of Bike Courier Bike Shop, and local transportation advocate, Jackie Cobb. We not only discuss a new vision for a way forward, but chew on two big pieces of news this week: BUDGET NEWS: The Mayor has just submitted a proposed capital budget to Metro Council for 2020-21 that did NOT include funding ($60,000) to conduct a detailed traffic analysis of removing the Bardstown Road peak hours lane lights, a top recommendation for implementation of the Bardstown Road Safety Study. But the budget DOES include $2.5 million for intelligent traffic signal synchronization along the Bardstown Road corridor (from Broadway to the Gene Snyder) to support congestion mitigation and future bus rapid transit. It also includes funding for conversion of at least eight one-way streets in downtown Louisville to two-way traffic flow, and construction of 10 more miles of the Louisville Loop. TARC NEWS: https://www.ridetarc.org/tarc-seeking-public-comment-on-proposed-route-changes/ On April 29th, TARC announced plans to dramatically realign its system map, ultimately eliminating 22 of 47 current routes (47%) and decreasing the frequency of its Dixie Rapid BRT route 10. Proposed changes include discontinuing all express routes and circulators (except the route 20 Riverport Circulator) and local routes 62 (Breckenridge Shepherdsville), 82 (New Albany - Jeffersonville) and 22 (Twenty-Second Street). Eventually, we may expect the frequency and service level of remaining routes to increase as a result but the details are unclear at this point. TARC is reviewing the changes through an equity lens but 97% of riders use barely half of the current routes (which was true before coronavirus) and TARC’s cost per rider nears $60 in some parts of our community (versus $2.50 elsewhere), which threatens the enterprise. Detailed information concerning the changes is posted on TARC’s website, and public comments may be submitted to: PublicComment@ridetarc.org Public hearings will take place online May 13th at 5:30pm and May 18th at 12:00pm, via Zoom, as well. TARC is seeking the public’s input on three phases of potential service adjustments. The first, Phase A, would start on Aug. 9, 2020, and the others would be phased in as needed to achieve a sustainable financial standing. Phase A: Proposed changes include discontinuing the LouLift circulators (routes 01 & 77), local route 62, circulator 96, and all express routes (except 61X, 67X, & 78X). Phase B: Proposed changes include discontinuing local route 82, remaining express routes (exceptions from Phase A), circulators 52 and 75, and local route 22. Phase C: Proposed changes include temporary frequency adjustments to the Dixie Rapid BRT (route 10). However, BRT service frequency will remain at 15 minutes weekdays, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Truth to Power, we gather Forward Radio programmers and friends to discuss the state of the world, the nation, the state, and the city! It's a community conversation like you won't hear anywhere else! Truth to Power airs every Sunday at 4pm, Monday at 2pm, and Tuesday at 9am on Louisville's grassroots, community radio station, Forward Radio 106.5fm WFMP and live streams at http://forwardradio.org
