Featured Guests:

  1. Steffie Woolhandler, M.D., Professor at the City University of New York at Hunter College, examines the decision by insurance giant Aetna to pull out of Affordable Care Act program exchanges in 11 of 15 states where it operates. She’ll talk about the viability of establishing a public option within the Affordable Care Act and the larger problem of for-profit medicine.
  2. Dedrick Asante-Muhammad, director of the Racial Wealth Divide Initiative at the Corporation for Enterprise Development discusses his group’s recent report titled, “The Ever-Growing Gap: Failing to Address the Status Quo Will Drive the Racial Wealth Divide for Centuries to Come.” Among the report’s findings are: If average black family wealth continues to grow at the same pace it has over the past three decades, it would take black families 228 years to amass the same amount of wealth white families have today.
  3. Germaine Leggett, a 43 year old Taco Bell worker, recently laid off from his state of Connecticut job, discusses what occurred at the mid-August “Fight For 15” national convention of low wage workers in Richmond, Virginia — and what’s on the agenda for the movement during this election year.
  4. Stanley Heller, administrator with Promoting Enduring Peace, executive director of the Middle East Crisis Committee and host and producer of the cable TV public affairs program, “The Struggle.” He’ll talk about the ongoing Syrian civil war and Saudi air war in Yemen, as well as his group’s annual Gandhi Peace award, that will be given to 4-time independent presidential candidate and public citizen Ralph Nader and Omar Barghouti, a Palestinian human rights defender.

7:30 PM: Sustainable East End: Francesca Rheannon

This month, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued a revised flood-control plan to defend eastern Long Island’’s southern coast from devastating storms. The Fire Island to Montauk plan calls for elevating homes, replenishing dunes, restoring marshes, and dredging ocean inlets. The plan calls for elevating houses, or relocating basement utilities in others. Some houses would be rebuilt, and flood barriers would be erected around others. Six miles of roads would be turned into dikes. But some observers say the plan fails to take sea level rise into account. We talk to Kevin McAllister of Defend H2O, a non-profit concerned with coastal zone management and water quality. Sustainable East End is heard on the 3rd Wednesday each month at this time. The programs are archived at SustainableEastEnd.blogspot.com and will soon be available at WPKN podcasts.

David Bollier talks about the ancient social formation called the Commons and the radically new versions it’s taking “and spreading” around the world. His new book, co-edited with Silke Helfrich, is Patterns of Commoning. Then, the Rio Olympics are happening now, in a Brazil plagued by corruption, conflict and a de facto coup against president Dilma Roussef. We re-air our October 2015 interview with Juliana Barbassa about her book, Dancing With The Devil In The City of God: Rio de Janeiro on the Brink. It’s about how the preparations for the Olympic Games revealed the cracks in the Brazilian miracle.
