10 AM: A Miniature World: Binnie Klein

11 AM – Philosopher and cultural critic Susan Bordo’s book The Destruction of Hillary Clinton carries the distinction of being the first narrative to examine and attempt to answer the question many have been asking since the 2016 election: How did an extraordinarily well-qualified, experienced and admired candidate come to be seen as untrustworthy? Bordo unpacks the narrative. As Katha Pollitt once wrote of Bordo’s work “When Bordo deconstructs something, it stays deconstructed.” Full disclosure for this interview: Susan Bordo and Binnie Klein are sisters, so this is not going to be the usual “what went wrong” autopsy. They’re going behind-the-scenes of the writing of this book.

  2. Michell McIntyre campaign coordinator with Public Citizen’s Congress Watch and manager of the Coalition for Sensible Safeguards, examines growing opposition to the Regulatory Accountability Act, now pending in the U.S. Senate, which would exacerbate public harm that has resulted from corporate-deregulation of dangerous cars, unsafe food and other hazardous consumer products.

She’ll also discuss how the climate activist community is working to effectively challenge the views and actions of President Trump, who dismisses climate change as a “hoax.”

He will also talk about his recent foray into uncharted territory: the ancient art of letterpress printing. Although he spends much of his time in the digital sphere, Danny has come to appreciate the unique rewards of the analog world and how some of its skills and teachings can inform his digital creative work. Danny is the author of several books and online courses about drawing, illustrated journalling and creativity.
