Revolutions Per Minute - Radio from the New York City Democratic Socialists of America

You're listening to Revolutions Per Minute live from the new WBAI studios, a socialist radio show and podcast from members of New York City Democratic Socialists of America. The Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States, with 95,000 members nationwide and NYC-DSA is its biggest chapter. We are run by our 9,000+ members and organizers who are working together to build democratic socialism in all five boroughs. A UAW worker on strike at a John Deere facility in Iowa was killed on the picket lines early this morning. We send our love and solidarity to his loved ones and his ten thousand union brothers and sisters still out there fighting for a dignified life. His sacrifice will not be forgotten. Unionization efforts and the strike wave continue to spread. Amazon workers in Staten Island announced an NLRB petition earlier this week. Thousands of academic workers unionized at the University of Pittsburgh while thousands more at Harvard today launched a three day work stoppage. Columbia academic workers walked out today are prepared to hit the picket lines next week here in New York. 45,000 healthcare workers at Kaiser Permanente have authorized a strike. NYC-DSA members this past weekend stood in solidarity with 2,000 healthcare workers on strike at Catholic Mercy Hospital in Buffalo. We'll hear from Charlie Baker on this struggle and the rally for DSA endorsed Mayoral candidate India Walton. Dozens of DSA candidates are running in races across the country from Massachusetts to New York to Florida. Jorge from Joel Brooks campaign in Jersey City joins to discuss their city council campaign in its final week. We'll also hear a special report from Lee on the victorious struggle led by NYC-DSA Ecosocialist Working Group to prevent a fracked gas power plant from being built in Astoria.

There are so many unique backgrounds and life stories within the community. I love interviewing bikers and sharing their stories and experiences as I did so in this episode.  I had the pleasure of interviewing Patron Member Brad Johnston of Redmond, Oregon. Prior to recording the podcast, we had spent the day in the Law Abiding Biker shop filming a rear Rockford Fosgate speaker install on his 2017 Harley Road Glide Special. That video will eventually release along with other stereo install videos here!

“You want to see the most beautiful thing I've ever filmed?” Uh, maybe not Mr. Spacey. But we will take a look at AMERICAN BEAUTY and the other two releases from October 1, 1999, THREE KINGS and MYSTERY, ALASKA. Time to look closer…at Episode 61 of Opening Weekend! It's the early fall of 1999 and the boys are watching three cinematic game changers: Sam Mendes' “American Beauty” and its take on repressed, suburban malaise; David O. Russell's “Three Kings”, with its fever-dream, anti-war prescience; and the biggest game changer of them all, Jay Roach's “Mystery, Alaska”…because it makes Dan want to literally change the game…from hockey to anything else. What's creepier? The way Kevin Spacey ogles Mena Suvari in her cheerleading outfit or the way Jason and Fred ogle George Clooney in his Desert Camo? And asDan enthusiastically repeats stories he told 8 episodes ago about bad jobs, living in Astoria, bad jobs, and living in Astoria (also about bad jobs and living in Astoria), Jason and Fred reminisce about the amazing artistry they witnessed that season: Jason, with the paintings of Norman Rockwell and Drew Sturzan. Fred with the acting prowess of Ed Koch and Drew Barrymore's Mom. Put down the camera, Wes Bentley, you're freaking that dead bird out…and tune into Episode 61 of Opening Weekend!

For Video Edition, Please Click and Subscribe Here: https://youtu.be/fhidKvftVpI Ron Aprea grew up in Astoria, NY and clearly remembers seeing Pete Fountain playing the clarinet on television. Inspired to play, Ron went to his elementary school band director, Mr. Cahill, and asked to play what he thought was Pete's instrument, a saxophone. So that's what the school gave him. That little mistake has given the world of Jazz an artist that contributes to the genre with exceptional skill to this day. Continuing to play throughout his school years, Ron finally got his own alto saxophone at age 16 and started taking lessons in a studio across the street from Radio City Music Hall. It was also during this time that Ron would frequent the famed Birdland Jazz Club on Broadway. He spent a lot of time soaking up inspiration from all of the Big Band and Jazz legends that played the club – such as Count Basie and Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Both would prove to be major influences in Ron's career. It was at Birdland that Ron met Frank Foster, who played with and arranged for Count Basie; the two became lifelong friends. One of many prized items in Ron's memorabilia is a collection of original arrangements that Frank had written for Basie's band and then gave Ron copies for his band. Ron has spent years perfecting his musical prowess. He's played with legends like Woody Herman, Tito Puente, Billy May, Skitch Henderson and Lionel Hampton. While playing with Hamp, he had the opportunity to do a recorded performance at the Smithsonian Institute, where Ron's solos were taped and placed into their Archives. As part of an All-Star band, Ron played at a 2001 Charlie Parker Birthday Tribute in Harlem. He has also been featured during performances at the Paramount Theatre and the world famous Apollo Theatre.

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, a show by the women of Amazin' Avenue where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.  This week, we begin by discussing the difficult position the Mets find themselves in this offseason—with lots of holes to fill, but not in a position to rebuild. We also talk about the possibility of Billy Beane as President of Baseball Operations. In our baseball segment this week, we talk about the dugout spat between Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. We also discuss the rising cost to attend a baseball game and how that makes the game inaccessible to fans.  We also remind everyone about our upcoming fundraising event this Saturday at Katch in Astoria at 5:00pm. Please come if you are able to! We have lots of awesome prizes to bid on—including a signed bat from Brandon Nimmo and a signed ball from Michael Conforto—all to benefit the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Finally, we wrap things up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what's making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.  You can listen or subscribe to all of our wonderful Amazin' Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show.

Throwaway culture may not seem to affect you personally (spoiler: it actually is), but the fast fashion cycle of shop/wear a few times/donate is having a massive negative impact on humans, animals, and the planet...it's just happening out of our line of sight. In part one of a three part series, Liz Ricketts of the OR Foundation breaks down the repercussions of our overconsumption on Ghana, its people, and our entire planet. About 15 million secondhand garments from the Global North arrive in Accra, Ghana each week. These bales of "dead white man's clothes" represent a massive industry with incredibly negative economic and environmental impact. Liz will describe a typical day in Kantamanto (the secondhand clothing market). She'll explain why resellers often say a prayer before opening a bale, and what happens to the 40% of these clothes that are simply not sellable.  Please follow the OR Foundation on IG @theorispresentExtra Credit Reading"This is not your goldmine.
