7:30 PM: Sea Change Radio: Alex Wise

Are you one of the many people who thinks about taking your bike to do an errand more often than actually taking your bike for that errand? If one of your reasons for driving instead is that you don’t have the energy for a workout or it’s just too dark outside, you won’t want to miss this week’s episode of Sea Change Radio.

First, we hear from Jon Stevens of Superpedestrian, an innovative company that has designed the Copenhagen Wheel, a bicycle wheel that can make a sweaty, tiring hill ascent a thing of the past. Then, host Alex Wise speaks with Laurent Rains of Monkey ’Lectric, whose cutting-edge wheel lights make it much more fun to ride a bike in the dark.

To date the U.S. government is known to have killed 4 other U.S. citizens who were targeted in attacks against suspected terrorists.
  2. Campaign for America’s Future blog editor, Isaiah Poole discusses his recent article, “A March in North Carolina For The Soul of America,” describing the significance of the February 8 march of an estimated 80,000 people, the largest such gathering in the South since the 1965 Selma to Montgomery march—organized to protest the extremist policies of North Carolina’s GOP-controlled legislature. He’ll also discuss the broader issues relating to the agenda of today’s progressive movement, effective policy prescriptions to reverse income inequality and challenge voter suppression.
  3. Alice Rothschild, author of the book, Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resilience, talks about her new film, Voices Across the Divide, a 2013 documentary and oral history project exploring the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

  4. David Moberg, senior editor with the newsmagazine In These Times discusses the United Auto Workers February 14 election defeat at the Volkswagen auto plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee – and the broader issues facing the U.S. labor movement as unions continue to lose membership and income inequality has become a more prominent national issue.

7:30 PM: Sea Change Radio

2013 was the driest year on record in California, and the state’s snowpack is at 12% of what it should be. Considering that this state alone houses an eighth of the US population, maintains over 25 million acres of farmland with a GDP larger than that of Canada, the current California drought reaches well beyond the borders of the golden state. This week on Sea Change Radio, host Alex Wise talks with Peter Gleick, President and Co-founder of the Pacific Institute. They discuss the realities and implications of the current water crisis, how better agricultural policy may help lessen its impact, and look at some of the innovations that have been developed in other arid geographies.
