THIS WEEK: Standing Rock: November 2016. This special documentary is a report of what the staff of KBMF, a low-power, community radio station in Butte, Montana, observed over 4 days in November at the Standing Rock campsite along the Dakota Access Pipeline path. The interviews and recordings were made during the demonstrations on Backwater Bridge on November 20, 2016, the day Sophia Wilansky was severely injured during the late night confrontations with police along Highway 1806. You will also hear from Water Protector Mark Edwards who was in camp when the announcement from the Corps rippled through the camp.
THIS WEEK: Steven Rosenfeld covers national political issues for AlterNet.org. He says election recounts in key battleground states will reveal deep flaws in the U.S. electoral machinery. Robert Jensen, Professor of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin, explains how a passive U.S. media is normalizing Trump’s racist rhetoric and lies. And, Ron Pauley who worked almost 34 years in the coal industry, talks about an extension of health care benefits to retired coal miners is being blocked by the GOP Senate.
Provocative, up-to-the-minute, alive and witty, this weekly confrontation over politics, policy and popular culture proves those with impeccable credentials needn't lack personality. This weekly "love-hate relationship of the air" features four of the most insightful news analysts anywhere.
THIS WEEK: Protecting The Sacred White Lions with Linda Tucker. African lion populations have decreased by nearly 70% in the past 50 years. Were it not for some courageous activists that number might be even more catastrophic. Under the spiritual guidance of a wise medicine woman who saved her life in the African wilderness, Linda Tucker abandoned her high-powered career to return to the pride lands and follow her destiny as an appointed “keeper of the white lions.”
