2 AM: Floored Radio: Xavior Varien

6 AM: Democracy Now! Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez

7 AM: Radio Base Camp: Steve di Costanzo

9 AM: Radio Nothing: Rod Richardson

12 Noon: First Voices Radio: Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Our Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse is away from the studio. On this repeat edition of “First Voices Radio,” we dig deep into the show’s extensive 28-year old archive and present three remarkable individuals. Tiokasin interviews William Iġġiaġruk Hensley (Iñupiaq), author of “Fifty Miles from Tomorrow.” This is a stirring memoir of his childhood among the Iñupiaq people of Alaska, his lifelong crusade, including a stint in Congress, to protect their culture and way of life. It is the inspiring true story of one man’s quest to preserve and defend his people’s “Ilitqusiat” or Native Spirit.

Tiokasin also interviews Mari Boine, a Norwegian Sami musician known for having added jazz and rock to the yoiks of her Native people. Mari, who was born in Finnmark, Norway, grew up amid the Laestadian Christian movement as well as amidst discrimination against her people. She was asked to perform at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, but refused because she perceived the invitation as an attempt to bring a token minority to the ceremonies. In the strict lestadian milieu joik was viewed as the devil’s work. “I am not Christian today,” she says, “But I have a holistic religion. I think this religion is gaining ground world wide.” More about Mari at www.mariboine.no.

We close out the show with “What Happened to the Tribes of Europe” by John Trudell (Santee Dakota, d. 2015) from his 2001 album, “DNA: Descendant Now Ancestor.”

  • Melvin Goodman, a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy, and an adjunct professor of international relations at Johns Hopkins University, worked for 42-years in government service with tours at the CIA, the State Dept., and the Dept. of Defense’s National War College. Mel, author of five books, his latest titled, “American Carnage: The Wars of Donald Trump,” will discuss negotiations now underway between the Trump administration and Taliban to reach a peace agreement that would lay the groundwork for the eventual withdrawal of U.S. troops. He’ll assess the cost of this decades-long war on the Afghan people, and what the future may hold for the war-torn nation.
  • Victor Pickard, Associate Professor at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, co-directs the Media, Inequality & Change Center. The author of, “America’s Battle for Media Democracy” and co-author of “After Net Neutrality: A New Deal for the Digital Age,” Pickard will talk about his new book, “Demcoracy Without Journalism? Confronting the Misinformation Society.”
  • Dan Knudsen and Michael Uhl, members of People’s Action for Clean Energy, talk about Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), a tool cities and towns can use to direct their energy purchases toward renewable sources – while saving money at the same time. Other states such as Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New York, California and four others have implemented CCA, and there’s a push to have Connecticut adopt it as well.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

We talk with filmmaker Deborah Schaffer and film editor Rachel Reichman about Queen Of Hearts, their wonderful documentary about the life and work of Audrey Flack. Then we talk with investigative journalist Greg Palast about the important victory he just won in court to force the Governor of Georgia to release the details of a huge purge of mostly African American voters in the 2018 Georgia election.

Larger Social Changes to Support Worker Co-Ops – This program responds to a criticism that D@W focuses too much on the transition from capitalist firms to worker-co-op firms with too little attention paid to the larger social changes needed to get beyond capitalism. Discussion focuses on the broader social changes needed to sustain a worker-co-op-based economy including a government that administers an economy-wide democratic sharing of profits and resources among the worker-co-op enterprises.
