K.A. Owens interviews Michael T., writer, actor, playwright and activist. They discuss the Inauguration in Washington, D.C. and the first days of the Biden/Harris administration. Recorded Thursday January 21, 2021.
Dylan Holland, long-time friend and cohost of Horrorble Podcast, joins us on the show this week. We talk about bipolar, introversion, career changes, and Emory's childhood fear of the toilet. Featured: Original theme music by Neil Lucas. Recommendations: http://www.horrorblepodcast.com/
Our guest this week, Danica Novgorodoff, is a writer, graphic novelist, and illustrator who has written 3 of her own graphic novels but her work has received some extra special attention recently. She is the illustrator of the new graphic novel edition of Jason Reynolds’ award winning young adult novel Long Way Down. She believes she was chosen for the book partly because of her special use of watercolors as a medium for graphic art, which gives the work an ephemeral feel. Besides this project, she is also in the process of writing a graphic novel on climate change, several children’s books, as well as essays and illustrating a cookbook with a James Beard award winning cookbook author. And did I mention she has a 3 year old and a one year old? As well as working at home during a pandemic? We need to give this artist and mother a medal... or at least a glass of wine and an hour to herself. Danica talks to us about what steps she takes to adapt a book into a graphic novel, how becoming a mother totally changed her thoughts on how to write and illustrate a good children’s book, and how the pandemic hastened her family’s move away from Brooklyn back to some of her roots in Kentucky. Books Mentioned in this Episode: 1- Hatchet by Gary Paulsen 2- My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George 3- Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell 4- Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George 5- Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris Ware 6- Long Way Down (graphic novel) by Jason Reynolds, illustrated by Danica Novgorodoff 7- A Late Freeze by Danica Novgorodoff 8- The Undertaking of Lily Chen by Danica Novgorodoff 9- Refresh, Refresh by Danica Novgorodoff 10- Slow Storm by Danica Novgorodoff 11- Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast 12- What I Hate from A to Z by Roz Chast 13- The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humbolt's New World by Andrew Wulf 14- The Passage to Cosmos: Alexander von Humbolt and the Shaping of America by Laura Dassow Walls 15- Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine 16- Pizza Girl by Jean Kyoung Frazier

Today we hear from Patrick Erdley, a Louisville native who served in Bulgaria as a Youth Development Volunteer from 2006-2008. He fell in love with Bulgaria and a Bulgarian and returned to the country from 2009-2012. During that time he co-wrote Bulgaria - Other Places Travel Guide (https://books.google.com/books/about/Bulgaria_Other_Places_Travel_Guide.html?id=fQ8vWih-rqwC) and he also wrote a blog about riding public transportation in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia (https://sofiapublictransport.wordpress.com/). After returning to the U.S. and the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, Patrick was able to sponsor his fiancé Todor to come to the US. He was the first Bulgarian to be sponsored for a K1 visa to the US in a same sex relationship.

This show provides some comic relief with jokes (and our CT analysis), and a discussion of critical thinking items in the news. In one article, we consider a Forbes piece in which higher education takes the hit for not teaching leaders in D.C. to be critical thinkers with sound characters, thus leading to recent disastrous events at the Capitol. We also look at emerging research about where the risks of COVID really are in your everyday life. Spoiler alert: you are much more likely to get COVID from disease particles in the air around you than from "infected" surfaces; some important new findings to share to help you think about your day to day choices.

Dr. Robert Campbell discusses drug addiction, treatment, and drug policy
***Listeners, this week we have our last replay episode before we start back with Season 4 next week with an all new group of fascinating bookish guests. We’ve been recording over the hiatus, and we are excited to introduce you to more book lovers in just a few more days. Our rebroadcast this week is from Season 3, episode 58 with Clare Wallace, the executive director of South Louisville Community Ministries which also runs The Rosewater bookstore in coordination with The BookWorks. The community bookstore opened just as COVID was hitting the city in the spring of 2020, and it took several months for them (and everyone) to figure out the new normal. but they are up and running with regular hours, a really great selection of books, and gift items made by artisans in the neighborhood. Located on South 3rd Street, The Rosewater’s regular hours are: Wednesday & Thursday, 10:00 - 4:00 Friday & Saturday, 10:00 - 6:00 Sunday, 10:00 - 3:00 It also offers mystery bags. Book lovers can complete a Google Form and request books from a certain genre. If you’re like me and spend way too much time in the house, something as simple as a mystery bag of books you can pick up curbside is the kind of excitement I’m down for in 2021. _____________ This past weekend many people recognized Independent Bookstore Day, a day to be extra appreciative of their local bookstores and booksellers that give booklovers all the feels. Everyone loves a bookstore, don’t they? Our guest today certainly does. When Clare Wallace visits a new place, she always looks for the closest used bookstore. This gave her the idea to open The Rosewater, aptly named after her favorite Kurt Vonnegut book, which she envisions as a comforting living room for everybody. Clare is the executive director of South Louisville Community Ministries, a nonprofit that provides emergency assistance for residents of South Louisville facing crisis, and she was looking for a visible way to do outreach in the neighborhood. The bookstore serves several purposes; to create a warm community space, to bring life to parts of the neighborhood that have seen hard times, to provide transitional employment for residents in crisis, and to offer a service that the neighbors want! Clare grew up in a house filled with hundreds of books with a mother who worked for a publisher but her favorites were those that explored other worlds. After Clare left college, she literally went around the world working in international development and as a Peace Corps volunteer. When she settled in Louisville, she chose to land in the most diverse part of the city which is filled with a wide variety of different ethnicities and income levels; Clare works to bring people together in her adopted hometown. Clare tells us how The Rosewater is pivoting from traditional retail sales to creative services like mystery book boxes delivered to your door due to Covid, why creating a comforting community space for the neighborhood is important to her, and how learning to deal with failure is a skill she learned abroad that helps her create new projects today.

Michael Moore's movie "Planet of the Humans" received ten million views on YouTube, but also faced a barrage of criticism. The following is a partial list of negative reviews. Please read the following list and consider whether the movie might have touched a nerve, and why. Is it possible the movie is that bad? Or maybe it strikes too close to the truth. Planet of the humans: A reheated mess of lazy, old myths 6 Reasons Why “Planet of the Humans” is a Disaster of Misinformation 10 Reasons « Planet of the Humans » Gets Everything Wrong on Climate Why “Planet of the Humans” is crap Michael Moore produced a film about climate change that’s a gift to Big Oil A Bomb in the Center of the Climate Movement’: Michael Moore Damages Our Most Important Goal POTH Traffics in Myths, Errors, and Dangerous Misdirection If You Care About Climate Action, Don’t Watch POTH
Planet of the Humans is a documentary produced by Michael Moore. It has caused quite a stir since its release in April of 2020. The critics are misrepresenting the movie and acting more than a little childish. Meanwhile the Wall Street firms that stand to make a profit from so called clean and renewable energy are enjoying greenwashed images by associating themselves with Bill McKibben, Naomi Klein and other big name environmentalists. But what does the movie really say? What are the critics really saying? And can we have a rational discussion about this movie? To be frank, it's not about a movie. It's about how people have reacted to the movie and what their reaction reveals about their true priorities.
The Climate Report calls for critical thinking among climate activists. Unfortunately, most environmentalists and the public have been sold the idea that if something is labeled "clean and renewable energy" then it is all good all the time. But we need to look at the true impact of so-called clean energy, not least of all the impact of lithium mining. Like all mining, lithium mining has a dramatic impact on the landscapes from which the metal originates, notably Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.
This week on the Truth to Power Happy Hour, we gather after one of the most momentous weeks in our nation’s political history for a freewheeling conversation among Forward Radio programmers, Justin Mog (Sustainability Now), Hart Hagan (The Climate Report), Jeanette Westbrook (The Human Factor), and joining us for the first time to help us talk about our feelings, Lizzy Caraway (Two Nuts in a Pod)!

On Truth to Power each week, we gather Forward Radio programmers and friends to discuss the state of the world, the nation, the state, and the city!
