The MODUS Files - A Fallout 76 Enclave Podcast Series

It's been almost a year since Vault 76 opened and the residents found themselves in an Appalachia none of them recognized. The Scorched have loomed large over everything in the region...even as the Vaulters struggled to begin rebuilding. The New Enclave has risen at the Whitespring and spread its influence. But now, after Sunnytop, the Colonel realizes they are no longer alone, and the Scorched must be dealt with before these newcomers are exposed, infected, and carry the plague to the world. We now learn the history of Operation Beowulf and set the stage for what is to come...a battle to decide whether Appalachia belonged to humanity or the monsters.

The South has been hit hard over the last few decades by the opioid epidemic. 20 years ago, governments weren't prepared. Police focused on shutting down marijuana growth, not the rapid spread of prescription drugs. Ground Zero for the spread of drugs like oxycontin may have been coal country in Eastern Kentucky. In his new book "Twilight in Hazard: An Appalachian Reckoning," Alan Maimon chronicles the spread of the opipoid epidemic, as well as environmental and economic disasters. The country seems obsessed with figuring out what Appalachia means for the rest of America.

It's a liberal bashing Friday! Bob and Scott talk about the state of the Democrats in the wake of the Virginia, New Jersey and Buffalo elections. They talk about how the Democrats continue to act like it's 1993 and put up tired old Clinton hacks like Terry McAuliffe and ex-Goldman bankers like Phil Murphy and expect things to be different. Furthermore, they undermine democratic socialists like India Walton in the Buffalo mayor's race and blame woke politics, defund the police, medicare for all, the Green New Deal, etc when things don't go their way. In Glasgow, it's even more of the same liberal slight of hand, as Obama and Kerry play up the "climate action" rhetoric when both have built long careers on keeping the fossil fuel sector afloat. Obama was in the White House for eight years with climate movements sitting in on his front doorstep, fighting pipelines in Texas, fracking in New York and coal mining in Appalachia and did NOTHING. Scott has more than a few gripes about this. We then get into how autonomous movements, using direct action and organizing, defy powers that be in the corporate suites, Washington DC and, the "leadership" of their own movements. We discuss the John Deere strike and a recent disruption of Sen. Amy Klobuchar by Stop Line 3 protestors as examples of disruption and resistance to the powers that be. Finally, we wrap with a "Love'em they're liberals" segment about Nancy Pelosi officiating billionaire's weddings in San Francisco City Hall (true story). Love them they're liberals!

For the majority of Americans, hard times have long been a way of life. Some work multiple low-wage jobs, others face the squeeze of stagnant wages and rising costs of living. Sociologist Celine-Marie Pascale talked with people across Appalachia, at the Standing Rock and Wind River reservations, and in the bustling city of Oakland, California. Their voices offer a wide range of experiences that complicate dominant national narratives about economic struggles. Yet Living on the Edge: When Hard Times Become a Way of Life (Polity Press, 2021) is about more than individual experiences. It's about a nation in a deep economic and moral crisis. It's about the long-standing collusion between government and corporations that prioritizes profits over people, over the environment, and over the nation's well-being. It's about how racism, sexism, violence, and the pandemic shape daily experience in struggling communities. And, ultimately, it's a book about hope that lays out a vision for the future as honest as it is ambitious. Most people in the book are not progressives; none are radicals. They're hard-working people who know from experience that the current system is unsustainable. Across the country people described the need for a living wage, accessible health care, immigration reform, and free education. Their voices are worth listening to. Learn more about your ad choices.

Opening Song: Never Lost by Chris Brown Steven Furtick Tiffany Hudson Lyrics: Miracles when You move Such an easy thing for You to do Your hand is moving right now You are still showing up At the tomb of every Lazarus Your voice is calling me out   Right now I know You're able My God come through again   You can do all things You can do all things but fail 'Cause You've never lost a battle No You've never lost a battle And I know​ ​I know You never will   Everything's possible By the power of the Holy Ghost A new wind is blowing right now Breaking my heart of stone Taking over like it's Jericho My walls are all crashing down   You've never lost a battle You've never lost a battle You've never lost a battle You never will Never never   Yes I know​ ​I know You never will I know​ ​I know You never will Passage:  32 Now when Mary came to where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet, saying to him, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled. 34 And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus wept. 36 So the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” 37 But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man also have kept this man from dying?” Jesus Raises Lazarus 38 Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. 39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, “Lord, by this time there will be an odor, for dhe has been dead four days.” 40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” 41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me.” 43 When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” 44 The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” Musical Reflection:  “Amazing Grace,” Appalachian folk tune Reflection Notes:  This beloved tune, formally known as NEW BRITAIN, originates from the folk music of Appalachia. The melody is simple and outlines triads, making it memorable; the ascending line creates a triumphant climax.  Prayer: Almighty God, you have taught us through your Son that love is the fulfilling of the law. Grant that we may love you with our whole heart and our neighbors as ourselves; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The Leonine Sacramentary

EWN - Engineering With Nature
The Next Generation Makes the Future of EWN Even Brighter

EWN - Engineering With Nature

This episode exemplifies our theme for Season 3 –Creating the Future with EWN. Host Sarah Thorne and Jeff King, Deputy Lead of the Engineering With Nature program at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, are talking with three PhD students who are doing truly groundbreaking work: Matt Chambers from the University of Georgia, Joseph Holway from Arizona State University, and Justine McCann from the University of Oklahoma.   These students represent three of the academic institutions associated with the Network for Engineering With Nature (N-EWN) initiated in October of 2020. Education and research are at the heart of the N-EWN. In this episode, we discuss the journeys of Matt, Justine, and Joseph–how they got interested in environmental science, engineering, natural infrastructure, EWN, and their plans for the future. Their paths have similarities: a personal interest in the environment, early exposure to environmental issues, finding an academic advisor whose interests aligned with their own, and then pursuing a PhD focused on a passion. These students are committed to making a difference.   Joseph describes how, as a child, he fell in love with the Grand Canyon and spent a lot of time there, then spent a semester there as an undergraduate that transformed into a years-long job running around the Grand Canyon doing science. “I was like, wow, you're going to pay me to do these things? I wanted to work towards being more than a lab technician. I met my advisor, Dr. John Sabo, who was doing work in the Mekong River Basin; and now I'm in Cambodia working with fish and looking at how the amount of water and the timing of the water affects a fishery in Southeast Asia on the Mekong River.”   With a background in Mechanical Engineering, Matt struggled to find a long-term path that suited him. He took environmental science courses that aligned with his interest in environmental stewardship. These courses eventually led him to Dr. Brian Bledsoe's lab where he is working on riverine systems and flood management infrastructure using nature-based features. Dr. Bledsoe is the Director of the Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems at the University of Georgia. As Matt describes his work, “Utilizing nature-based features that already perform natural processes that manage floodwaters will be one way that we can make those systems more resilient in the face of climate change.”   Justine has a background in geology. A strong field program at Penn State introduced her to the complex problem of mine drainage prevalent in the coal country of Appalachia. After doing some consulting, she found her path forward: “When I heard my current advisor, Dr. Bob Nairn, talking about that at the Geological Society of America meeting, I thought his approach to it was very interesting.  because it's such a low-energy approach to solving such a complex problem. I thought it would be a great fit for me to work on these more innovative strategies.”   When talking about the future, the students focused on the key elements of EWN: using science and engineering to produce operational efficiencies to better understand systems and achieve desired outcomes by leveraging natural processes and working collaboratively with local communities. As Justine puts it, “I think that there's a lot to be said about considering how to work with nature instead of imposing our will on nature. That's a lot of what EWN is about.”   Joseph's vision is for future generations to be able to appreciate rivers as he does: “I want to work in a space where I can ensure that rivers are going to flow as wild and as free as possible, but it's kind of balancing all of the services that rivers provide. In places where there's going to be dams, we can manage them in ways that are least to people downstream, whether it's fishing for livelihoods or recreating on boats.” Joseph is also dedicated to sharing his knowledge and passion by mentoring and teaching future scientists through the NexGen Mekong Scientists program. Through this program, Arizona State University and the U.S. Department of State partner to build a network of young scientists in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. Joseph says it is a two-way street: “As much as I'm able to provide, I feel like I'm getting more back from the folks that are here. There's a tremendous amount of knowledge that each individual person that I work with in Cambodia has.”   Matt adds that, even as grad students, they can help dispel uncertainties around the application of nature-based solutions through the research projects they are working on. “Then maybe we can get to a place where this is commonplace for engineers, for general engineering practice. I think that would be a big step forward in a transition to a more environmentally sustainable world.” Jeff agrees: “As a graduate student, you may feel sometimes like you're not quite ready or in a position to be able to communicate information about your work and why it's important because you're so relatively new in that career track. But that's just not true. You've got very important messages to share, and you need to be finding those opportunities to get out there and tell people your story.”   November 8 is STEM and STEAM Day, which stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. The purpose is to inspire students. Joseph, Justine, and Matt offered advice to future students, assuring them that there's no one path; take your time; you don't have to have it all figured out right now; and above all, follow your passion. As Joseph says, “I wish I'd have learned in grade school that we know so little. There's so much exploration that's out there to be discovered. Let your curiosities run wild, dream big and most importantly, embrace, celebrate, and lean into your failures.” Justine adds, “Follow what you're actually concerned about, like climate change, and put your energy into working on solutions.”    Matt directed his advice to parents: “Take your kids outside. Go somewhere wild and with some acreage and try to open their mind to ideas in science and environmental stewardship. Do everything you can to set them up for an organic experience of total and complete awe with the natural world.”   Jeff wraps up the episode by sharing his excitement for the future: “We are in good hands with this next generation. I feel so good about the passion, the intensity, and the intellect that students—not only the three that we have here today, but students around the globe—are going to bring to this space and help us overcome all the challenges that we have in front of us today.”   Related Links EWN Website ERDC Website Jeff King at LinkedIn Jeff King at EWN Network of Engineering With Nature University of Georgia, Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems Brian Bledsoe at UGA University of Oklahoma Center for Restoration of Ecosystems and Watersheds Robert Nairn (thesis advisor for Justine McCann) John Sebo, Audacious Water (thesis advisor for Joseph Holway) NexGen Mekong Scientists Royal University of Agriculture STEM and STEAM at Wikepedia USACE National STEM Awareness Program STEM/STEAM Day   EWN Podcast S1E10 Collaborating with Academia to Create EWN-Focused Scientists and Engineers EWN Podcast S3E2: Considering and Evaluating the Benefits of Natural Infrastructure

When was the last time an artist took you by the hand and said, “Here, let me show you how the world looks through my eyes”? Frank X. Walker is Kentucky's former poet laureate and one of the co-founders of the Affrilachian Poets - a grassroots group of poets of color living in the Appalachian region. Thirty years after their founding, the Affrilachian Poets continue to dismantle the idea that Appalachia is a white region, devoid of literature and the arts. For decades, Frank's work has embodied a deeply personal approach and challenged us to see poetry as an urgent voice that can touch on our experience of living in a way other written works can't. Today, Frank is the Director of the MFA program of the University of Kentucky and he's mentored hundreds of artists along their path. He's the author and editor of a dozen books of poetry and, as you'll hear, Frank is a lovely, thoughtful, and really cool guy.
