This edition of OWC RADiO comes to you during the height of the COVID-19 virus quarantines. At times like this, we are able to spend more time with family, tackle projects around the house, cook, garden, play music or sing, check social media. Many of us are reading more and one of the most popular genres is classical Western fiction. Host, Cirina Catania, catches up with John Moore, an award-winning journalist, popular best-selling novelist, photographer, cowboy, rancher, and minister. Although on the surface this might be considered a departure from our "regular" programming, which is normally about tech and the creativity that drives it, this interview is about courage, perseverance, and honesty. All qualities that make us better storytellers. And since that is our end goal, we share this conversation with you. A third-generation Montana rancher and cowboy, John's work is noted for his authenticity and vivid descriptions of life in the Western United States. John grew up on a cattle ranch but left it to pursue life on the road during the "hippie" era. What he learned and what he brought back shortly before his father died, resonates with millions of readers who want to know more about life. He is a storyteller, who keeps history, tall tales and true stories of ranchers and cowboys alive. Some of his most known books include The Breaking of Ezra Riley, The Land of Empty Houses and Looking for Lynne, which won the silver medal in the 2015 Will Rogers Medallion Award for Western Fiction. John was recently inducted into the 2019 class of the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage, a nod shared with Pulitzer Prize winner Dorothy Johnson ("A Man Called Horse"), Pulitzer Prize winner A.B. Guthrie Junior and Norman McLean ("A River Runs Through It") among others. It's been a bumpy road with lots of trail dust, but the inspiration gets us off our straight and narrow. Who knows what will come in the future? Listen in and get inspired by John's courage, perseverance and authenticity. Write to us at OWCRADiO@catania.us or comment below.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE In today's episode, OWC RADiO host Cirina Catania, talks to Slovenian journalist and film critic Damijan Vinter, who gives us his take on this year's Berlin International Film Festival (the Berlinale). Here are his must-see movies and his impressions of this year’s films in competition. Celebrating its 70th year, the Berlin International Film Festival has once again confirmed its status as one of the world's leading film festivals: 342 festival films, 330,000 sold tickets, and 22,000 industry professionals from 133 countries. Damijan Vinter shares his impressions of the best feature films, including the winner of the Golden Bear, “There Is No Evil,” a drama from the Iranian director Mohammad Rasoulof centering on true stories of the people behind the scenes who carry out executions in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Rasoulof, has had many run-ins with the Iranian government since 2010, and was banned from filmmaking. He has now been sentenced to one-year in prison due to films which the Iranian authorities found to be "propaganda against the system." As of this writing, Rasoulof is refusing to turn himself in. An appeal is planned. If you missed this year's Berlinale, or just want to learn more about the films that were in competition in 2020, listen in to Damijan's recommendations and insights. You will find something interesting for sure! As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome. Write to us at OWCRADiO@catania.us or comment below.

Cirina Catania, the host of OWC RADiO, talks with Michael Williams, the Godfather of Comedy! If laughter is the best medicine, the doctor is in! Imagine living in LA in 1985 and being an African-American fan of stand up comedy but having nowhere to go to see comedians who resonated with you! Michael Williams had the unique idea to open a comedy club that featured all-black stand up comedians tailored to and reflecting the culture of his African American race. It had never been done before, but the results were pure magic. This conversation is about what happens when one hard-working person has the courage to try something completely new. It is about changing the world. It's about giving a voice in the '80s to what, at the time, was an under-represented culture. It is about creating a legacy and passing on wisdom to the next generation. And...it is about having fun, poking fun, healing wounds and finding joy. If these themes interest you, get ready for another great episode of OWC RADiO as Cirina Catania interviews Michael Williams, the real Godfather of Comedy. Michael was honored during a celebration of African American history, on the 4th of February, 2020, at the City Hall in Los Angeles. The world has been too quiet for too long about this selfless pioneer. We hope he will continue to get the recognition he so well deserves. The exhibit honoring Michael and several of America's most popular comedians is entitled, "Stand Up: Art and Politics in Comedy" and will remain on display for the entire month of February.

In this episode of OWC RADiO, host Cirina Catania, talks with Orlando Luna (Producer/Benefactor) and Andy Stein (Founder and Executive Chairman) of the Orphaned Starfish Foundation, as they unveil the behind-the-scenes stories of how this organization came about and how OSF is now teaching technology, creativity and story-telling using mobile hardware and software. OSF was founded in 2001 to help orphans, victims of abuse, survivors of trafficking, indigenous populations, refugees and at-risk youth worldwide escape their cycles of poverty and abuse through education and job training. As of this broadcast, over 15,000 children in countries around the world have seen their lives changed as mentors from the organization arrive to empower their inner creativity. By taking away the thought that filmmaking is "hard," and giving them simple but powerful tools, all the team has to do is train them and give them the inspiration to create! The results are surprising. In a new association with Mobile Phone Studio and WeMakeMovies, The Orphaned Starfish Foundation’s emerging tech-arts program is reaching out even further to enable children to tell their stories through film. Yes, it is about gear, but it is even more about freedom of expression and a safe field in which to run. The work is as powerful as it is important.
