Like Democracy Now, this program looks at the news and issues of the day from a progressive perspective. The show is all about returning to a people centered democracy. It’s a 1-hour recap of Thom Hartmann’s best guests of the day.
THIS WEEK: Red Light to Starboard: Recalling the Exxon Valdez Disaster. Red Light to Starboard documents a story that stunned the world: the crash and spilling of millions of gallons of crude oil by the Exxon Valdez. Angela Day describes the relationship between legislators and the oil industry that contributed to the crash and the environmental disaster that resulted. She also tells the story from its impact on one of the families, her own, because her husband was preparing for the herring season as the ship ran aground off the coast of Alaska.
THIS WEEK: Coming from WPKN public radio in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Between the Lines provides a platform for individuals and spokespersons from progressive organizations generally ignored or marginalized by the mainstream media.
Provocative, up-to-the-minute, alive and witty, this weekly confrontation over politics, policy and popular culture proves those with impeccable credentials needn't lack personality. This weekly "love-hate relationship of the air" features four of the most insightful news analysts anywhere.
THIS WEEK: Archetypes in Every Woman: Renaissance of the Feminine. Archetypal stories guide our lives in profound and largely unconscious ways. Through reframing classic mythologies, we explore the resurgence of the archetypal feminine and its relationship to nature through a multi-cultural lens, with Jean Shinoda Bolen, author and Jungian therapist; Luisah Teish, author and priestess in the Ifa Orisha tradition; Sri Swamini Svatmavidyananda, teacher of Hindu Vedanta philosophy.
