S03-E12 We feature U.S. Rep. Bella Abzug giving a speech on February 11, 1971. U.S. Rep. Shirley Chisholm introduces U.S. Rep. Abzug at a conference in Washington D.C. Abzug begins by speaking of the role of women in government, and the underrepresentation of women and minorities in the current Congress. She goes on to speak of the lies and deception on behalf of the United States government concerning the war in Vietnam, and of ending the conflict. There is a question and answer segment following her speech, addressing more issues surrounding the war, including Abzug's desire to set a specific date for withdrawing U.S. troops, and the problem of drug use among American soldiers in Southeast Asia. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a pair of biographies of Rep. Bella Abzug and Rep. Shirley Chisholm. Finally, a short overview of the National Women’s Political Caucus which was cofounded by both of them and several others.

S03-E11 We feature a talk by Mr. Buckminster Fuller he gave in 1968. He spoke at  the American Medical Association entitled, "What Quality of Environment Do We Want?" He begins by speaking of the earth as if it were a spaceship, with the sun being the closest "gas station," the next nearest being 100,000 times as far away. He reviews a few ways of looking at what we do to our environment, speaking of combustion engines, the role of television in development, the terminology of the past (and unlearning the misinformation that goes along with it), and the organization of cities. He winds the speech up with a review of the work of Dr. Benjamin Bloom of Chicago.

S03-E10 We feature an interview with Malcolm X and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This event occurred on March 27, 1964. The press interviews Malcolm X and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. amidst a Senatorial debate about the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Malcolm, calling the bill 'political chicanery,' wonders whether liberals are truly for Civil Rights legislation or not. Dr. King discusses possible direct action for making sure the bill is not filibustered. He expresses his intent to test the bill if and when it is passed. He also feels that the failure to pass the bill could lead to social disruption. The Civil Rights Act was signed into law on July 2, 1964. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, an overview of the Civil Rights Bill of 1964, and then a pair of biographies of the two leaders. Let us now tune our radio dial to 1964 and listen to Malcolm X and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as they discuss civil rights issues.

S03-E09 We feature Edward R Murrow, the well-respected newspaper and radio reporter from the 1940s and 1950s and his newscast on flying saucers in 1950. Currently, the government and the military are releasing more information about sightings of UFOs. A big release is planned this summer by the military. I thought it timely to look back in history to see how such UFOs were covered by the traditional news media. Edward R Murrow is considered by many as the finest journalist of his or any generation. He covered World War Two from London and even flew on some dangerous bombing missions over Germany during the war. I thought you would like to listen to this trained journalist make early reports about UFOs. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of his life, second, an overview on UFOs, third, a list of UFO sightings, and fourth, a record of UFOs in popular fiction. Let us now tune our radio dial to 1950 and listen to Mr. Murrow share about UFO sightings.

S03-E08 We feature President Clinton and his 1995 speech at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial Service. U.S. Presidents are often called upon to help the nation begin the healing process after great tragedies. In this short set of remarks at the memorial service, the President begins that painful process in April 1995 a few days after the bombing. It will take months before the federal investigation is completed of the second most deadly act of terrorism on U.S. soil, only surpassed by events of September 11th. The concept of terrorists coming from inside the U.S. was a difficult concept for most Americans to believe. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were anti-government extremists who acted in part to recent events of federal law enforcement intervention at the Ruby Ridge compound and the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas. All of these events became part of the paranoid delusion that led McVeigh and Nichols plant the bomb in Oklahoma City that killed so many, caused so much destruction, and led a nation to fear their neighbors, especially new immigrants to the U.S. It is for that reason that the historical accounts of all three events are included to provide context for the event that led to the President’s speech. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a transcript of this speech, second a historical account of the Oklahoma bombing, third an account of the Ruby Ridge compound, and finally, an account of the Branch Davidian confrontation in Waco, Texas. These audio recordings come from a variety of sources. This one was provided through the American Rhetoric online database.

S03-E07 We feature Mr. Paul Harvey and his 1970 commencement speech given at Brigham Young University in Utah. To say that Mr. Harvey was an American institution is to make an understatement. For decades, he commanded a radio audience of more than twenty million to dispense his Midwestern values and American patriotism with his take on national and world news. Please take the time to read through the PDF that accompanies this podcast for a review of a remarkable life that influenced a generation. There are plenty of his speeches available on YouTube. He had a remarkable message and a dramatic speaking style that captivated the listening audience. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a bibliography of Mr. Harvey and secondly an extensive profile of BYU Let us now tune our radio dial to 1970 and listen to Mr. Harvey share encouragement and inspiration with the new graduates of BYU.

S03-E06 We feature U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy sharing the court’s opinion about the Citizens United case that dramatically changed campaign finance laws in the U.S. and the influence of big money by corporations with our elections since. If you ever wondered why there are so many political advertisements and who funds many of them, this is the defining case. After this case was decided by a slim 5 to 4 margin, unlimited money from corporations could pour into political campaigns. Before this, campaigns had to depend upon individual contributions from people. The majority for a Supreme Court opinion select one justice to speak on behalf of them. On this occasion, it will be Associate Justice Kennedy. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a short overview of the case, second, a transcript of Kenney’s speech, third, a concurring and dissenting opinion by Justice Thomas, and finally, a short biography of Kenney. Let us now tune our radio dial to 2010 and listen to Justice Kennedy share a Supreme Court opinion that has changed ever election campaign since.

S03-E05 We feature Reverend Billy Graham and the speech from 1958 “Why the cross?” It is an appropriate recording to post to the podcast since it is Thursday of Holy Week, just before Christ was crucified. As a Christ-follower myself, there is nothing more central to the Christian faith than the death and resurrection of Jesus from the dead. It is part of the central message of the faith and essential for it to be meaningful. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of Reverend Graham, second, second, a general article on how crucifixion occurred in ancient times, third, an article focused on the crucifixion of Jesus and finally, an article on the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. All four articles come from Wikipedia.

S03-E04 Josh McDowell and his speech “A logical defense of the Christian faith”. McDowell has spoken to millions of college students over the past forty years. His most popular public lectures were on a logical defense for the Christian faith. McDowell traveled the country making presentations with sponsorship by various organizations. An emphasis of his talks was that a choice to believe in the Christian faith is not a leap of faith. Rather, there is plenty of evidence that can lead someone to make a decision for believing in Christianity. This particular speech is a long-one at over an hour. It is packed with the evidence that led Josh McDowell as a skeptic to make this decision. I thought this a good episode in the context of our approach to Easter in a few weeks. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: one a biography of Mr. McDowell and an article about one of key arguments for the faith originally written by C.S. Lewis, an enormously influential Christian who also argued that Christianity was not a blind leap of faith.

Dr. Hendricks has been an enormously influential author, consultant, and teacher for half a century. Dr. Hendricks spent most of his career at Dallas Theological Seminary teaching a generation of leaders both in and outside the Christian church. This particular lecture on the characteristics of a leader has been given many times over the years to students, church leaders, and community leaders. I have listened to this lecture many times like the previous one in this podcast series. There are always new insights to learn for my own personal development.

(S03-E01) The President explains in this chat the reasons for the war with Japan and the history that led up to it. Previously, U.S. foreign policy had been to avoid entanglement of war with other countries in Europe. Now, President Roosevelt had to prepare the American people to quickly change their attitudes and prepare for war with Japan.
The United Nations Conference on International Organization (UNCIO), commonly known as the San Francisco Conference, was a convention of delegates from 50 Allied nations that took place from 25 April 1945 to 26 June 1945 in San Francisco, California, United States of America. At this convention, the delegates reviewed and rewrote the Dumbarton Oaks agreements of the previous year. The convention resulted in the creation of the United Nations Charter, which was opened for signature on 26 June, the last day of the conference. The conference was held at various locations, primarily the War Memorial Opera House, with the Charter being signed on 26 June at the Herbst Theatre in Civic Center. The conference was chaired by U.S. diplomat Alger Hiss

Beginning with WWII, Bob Hope and his band of entertainers traveled for decades at Christmas time to bring cheer and laughter and a little bit of home to our troops serving in battle zones around the world.

An important U.S. Supreme Court case affected religious practice and speech in public schools. It was the Good News Club versus Milford Central School case from 2001. This audio file provides the actual argument before the Supreme Court. The voices include the attorney representing the Good News Club and voices of the Supreme Court justices as they ask questions. Under New York law, Milford Central School policy authorizes district residents to use its building after school for certain activities. Two parents were district residents who were eligible to use the school's facilities. They sought approval of their proposed use and sponsorship of the Good News Club, a private Christian organization for children. The parents submitted a request to hold the Club's weekly afterschool meetings at the school. Milford denied the request reasoning that the proposed use, including singing songs, hearing Bible lessons, memorizing scripture, and praying, was the equivalent of religious worship prohibited by the community use policy. The Club filed suit alleging that the denial violated its free speech rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments. Ultimately, the District Court granted Milford summary judgment to not grant permission. The parents then appealed the decision. After hearing the case, the Court of Appeals agreed with the District Court that because the subject matter of the Club's was "quintessentially religious", and the activities "fall outside the bounds of pure 'moral and character development,'" According to them, Milford's policy of excluding the Club's meetings was constitutional subject discrimination, not unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination. The parents appealed the decision to the Supreme Court of the United States. The question for the court was, “Did Milford Central School violate the First Amendment free speech rights of the Good News Club when it excluded the Club from meeting after hours at the school? If a violation occurred, was it justified by Milford's concern that permitting the Club's activities would violate the Establishment Clause?” The court reversed the previous court decisions by ruling six justices to three in favor of the parents and the Good News Club.

We will hear the voice of Justice Clarence Thomas as he delivers the opinion for the U.S. Supreme Court justices. Under New York law, Milford Central School policy authorizes district residents to use its building after school for certain activities.

It is quite an interactive event with the justices often interrupting the attorney. Second item included is a formal document that contains information about the case, the formal written opinion by the majority of the justices, and comments by individual justices. Some of them join with the majority, some oppose the decision, and others support in part and oppose in other.

We feature an episode from old time radio, the CBS News Radio Series, You Are There. The docudrama is “The Pilgrims Sail to America in 1620”. Several PDF documents accompany this podcast to provide more information: Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony, Mayflower Ship and Voyage to America, and Mayflower Compact. Created by CBS Radio, it blended history with modern technology, taking an entire network newsroom on a time warp each week reporting the great events of the past. The news reporters were the top national journalists from CBS. The series started in1947 and featured various key events in American and world history, portrayed in dramatic recreations. Additionally, CBS News reporters report on the action and interview the key people from each historical episode. An announcer would give the date and the event, followed by a loud and boldly spoken "You are there!" This radio show was an example of serious attempts during the early days of radio to be educational rather than only entertaining. The beauty of their show was they provided the voices and news commentary while your imagination created the visuals of the historic event and people.
