7:30 PM: Economic Update with Dr. Richard Wolff

#MeToo and Corona: System is Key – This program focuses on how the capitalist economic system plays crucial roles in the #MeToo examples of Weinstein and Cosby and also in the failed response to the Corona virus crisis. The organization of capitalist enterprises – power and wealth concentrated at the top in a tiny minority – invites and enables sexual harassment and abuse by people positioned like Weinstein and Cosby. A profit-driven medical-industrial complex did not invest in preparing for the virus and a profit-subservient government failed to mobilize private and public resources to test for, contain, and overcome the disease.

David Peat and Blackfoot scholar Leroy Little Bear.

Anthony DellaFlora is the Producer of “The Language of Spirituality,” a documentary film about the intersection of spirituality, modern science and language.

7:30 PM: Sustainable East End: Francesca Rheannon

Hosts Francesca Rheannon and Tony Ernst ask “Should Southampton stop building in the Hills and beyond?” Before cancellation due to virus caution, on Tuesday March 24, the Southampton Town Board was set to approve legislation regulating what should happen when native grave sites are unearthed. The Board was also to consider placing a temporary moratorium on building in the Shinnecock Hills, a once pristine area, where natives buried their dead. But as development of multi-million dollar properties continues throughout the town and reasonably priced housing is scarce we asked real estate veteran Michael Daly, and local architect Bill Chaleff to consider what type of development is needed, and if we need a moratorium on building throughout Southampton. Also we asked Shinnecock graves-protection activist Becky Genia for her viewpoint.
