Rajika spoke to me about the motivation for international students to come to the US, and how it tends to vary between European and Asian international students. She reflected on how the number of students coming from different countries has fluctuated with international relations. We touch on the massive economic impact of international student exchange and on the topics of brain drain and brain circulation. Lastly, she reflected on her own journey as an international student that came to the United States and what it was like to put that story in her new book, America Calling.

Whether photographed in a coffin or depicted on an Art Nouveau poster, the French actor Sarah Bernhardt knew exactly how to get maximum publicity. Although her first outings on the stage were unremarkable, she refined her skills and rose to become the leading actor of her generation and a world-famous name. Her life off-stage was a further source of endless fascination, her eccentric and occasionally arrogant behaviour only adding to her allure. Her critics saw her as manipulative and hackneyed. For her admirers, seeing Bernhardt ‘die' on stage was a moment to be treasured for ever. Today we might find the late 19th-century acting style captured on film and sound recordings affected. But her legacy is being re-evaluated, as a woman who took control of her own destiny. Bridget Kendall charts Sarah Bernhardt's life and career with John Stokes, Emeritus Professor of Modern British Literature at King's College London, who's published widely on theatre history, including The French Actress and Her English Audience; Victoria Duckett, Senior Lecturer in Screen and Design at Deakin University in Melbourne and the author of Seeing Sarah Bernhardt: Performance and Silent Film; and Sharon Marcus, the Orlando Harriman Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Her 2019 book The Drama of Celebrity is an exploration of the processes that propel a figure such as Sarah Bernhardt to global fame.

Nearly two years into the pandemic, the U.S. is seeing a sustained drop in new COVID cases. And recent forecast models by researchers advising the CDC suggest we could see a steady decline in cases throughout the winter and into spring, rather than a seasonal surge.

A Passage North (Granta, 2021) is a novel set in contemporary post-war Sri Lanka. A young, privileged Tamil man takes a train journey from the capital Colombo to former war-torn Kilinochchi to attend the funeral of his grandmother's caretaker. But the journey of the title is equally the philosophical journeys he undertakes to the deepest recesses of his mind, to the past and future. An intense thread of longing runs through the novel: the nature of his people's longing that must have led to events that led to the devastating war, his longing for the non-existent Tamil homeland of his imagination, the caretaker's impossible longing for the impossible return of her sons dead in the war, his longing for his estranged romantic partner. Anuk Arudpragasam is from Colombo, Sri Lanka, and received a Doctorate in Philosophy from Columbia University in 2019.

In this week's episode, I'm talking with Don Waisanen. Don is a Professor of public communication in the Baruch College, CUNY Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, as well as an adjunct lecturer at Columbia University and New York University. He teaches seminars, courses, and workshops on topics ranging from communication strategy and leadership to storytelling and improvisation. I've known Don for close to a decade, when he joined the board of the organization that I had founded and of which I was ED. I was super excited when I saw his new book - Improv For Democracy, and wanted to talk with him about this unique - and actually really powerful - idea about how to find common ground and move to action with people whose beliefs and values we might think are different from our own. Then I learned about his second new book - both came out this year! - Leadership Standpoints, and we just knew we would have a great discussion about something that has felt increasingly urgent to both of us in recent years: how to work across differences to actually bring about change. We're in a time of such division and polarization, and the social change and social justice work that nonprofits are doing feel even more immediate - if that's possible - than when I got into the work twenty years ago. At the same time, teams are changing - how we work with the people INSIDE our organizations: our staff, our board -- how we need to think about communication and partnership is shifting in subtle but powerful ways. This conversation with Don is exactly what I had hoped for -- a frank, engaging discussion about actual communication and leadership strategies that leaders can use to meet people where they are, open up possibilities for partnership and collective movement towards action - on their teams, board, and in their broader work..
Does your diet allow you to go to happy hour?! What about enjoying your kid's birthday party? Or weekend getaways with friends? Today we are on a search for science and sustainability in popular diet trends. A lot of the time, food is more than just fuel, it is a way to connect with friends, family, and yourself! It's important to take these things into consideration when establishing your own relationship with food. In this episode I am covering a framework that you can use to evaluate whatever diet it is that's trending to decide if it's something you actually want to do. I break down keto, intermittent fasting, detox and cleanses, and the vegan diet to see where they all fall on the sustainability spectrum. I also go over what actually happens to the body when we fall into yoyo dieting and how it may be more harmful to our health than carrying a few extra pounds. Lots of science and fun nutrition facts coming your way! For more in intermittent fasting be sure to check out this episode! References: (1) Golden, N. H., Schneider, M., & Wood, C. (2016).

Quotables "If you could help to influence one teacher's practice you're having influence with potentially 30+ students." "If students don't know you see them and don't know you care on a human level, then no one is going to learn anything." "Confusion has to come before you learn how to do something." "If you know what you're doing, you might be stagnant. If you're a little bit uncomfortable or out of your depth, you're growing." "No one can be everything to one person."

The Strong Black Woman Syndrome. For generations, in response to systemic racism, Black women and African American culture created the persona of the Strong Black Woman, a woman who, motivated by service and sacrifice, handles, manages, and overcomes any problem, any obstacle. The syndrome calls on Black women to be the problem-solvers and chief caretakers for everyone in their lives―never buckling, never feeling vulnerable, and never bothering with their pain.

In Mexico environmental struggles have been fought since the nineteenth century in such places as Zacatecas, where United States and European mining interests have come into open conflict with rural and city residents over water access, environmental health concerns, and disease compensation. In Silver Veins, Dusty Lungs: Mining, Water, and Public Health in Zacatecas, 1835-1946 (U Nebraska Press, 2020), Rocio Gomez examines the detrimental effects of the silver mining industry on water resources and public health in the city of Zacatecas and argues that the human labor necessary to the mining industry made the worker and the mine inseparable through the land, water, and air. Tensions arose between farmers and the mining industry over water access while the city struggled with mudslides, droughts, and water source contamination. Silicosis-tuberculosis, along with accidents caused by mining technologies like jackhammers and ore-crushers, debilitated scores of miners. By emphasizing the perspective of water and public health, Gomez illustrates that the human body and the environment are not separate entities but rather in a state of constant interaction. Rachel Grace Newman is Lecturer in the History of the Global South at Smith College. She has a Ph.D. in History from Columbia University, and she writes about elite migration, education, transnationalism, and youth in twentieth-century Mexico. She is on Twitter (@rachelgnew).

For this special report we talk to Jon Ben-Menachem. Jon is a researcher and journalist, currently working on his PhD in Sociology at Columbia University, where he researches political economy and punishment. As a journalist he's published on policing, incarceration and austerity for The Appeal, Slate, Shadowproof, Current Affairs, Truthout and New York Daily News. Today we invite Jon on to discuss his latest piece “What Media Gets Wrong About Last Year's Uptick In Murders” which was published at Slate. There's been a deluge of local and national media copaganda pushing for more cops and increased police budgets since the George Floyd protests and calls to defund police and abolish police that came along with them. It's important to disrupt these copaganda narratives, and we thought Jon's piece is helpful in that effort. The "Special Report" is a new segment where we interview journalists, activists, academics and organizers on shorter pieces. These might be essays, articles, field reports direct from organizers and/or incarcerated people, short stories or even poems. These interviews will be typically shorter than our full episodes, ranging somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour and will have a limited focus. Our goal with these is to talk about current events and ways that people are analyzing and seeking to intervene in them. Sometimes - as with this episode - there will be contradictions raised that we aren't able to resolve neatly, but need to be grappled with. This is part of our effort to bring you all more content. We are both doing this full-time now and we hope to continue to bring you all about 4 of our full episodes monthly, but also sprinkle in about 2 of these special reports or smaller discussions each month as well. To support this work we are on a current pledge drive to hit 1,000 patrons and we're only 20 patrons away from that big goal as we publish this. So if you haven't become a patron yet, now is a great time to do so. And thank you to all of the people who have been supporting us along the way.

I'm so excited to share with you today's guest on What You're Craving- Hannah Howard. She is an amazing author who is able to encapsulate the trials, tribulations, heartbreak and glory of having and recovering from an eating disorder. Hannah and I dish about her new book, “Plenty” and her first book, “Feast” - both of which I devoured, pun intended. Hannah talks all about recovering from an eating disorder while working in the food industry, her surprise in finding out how common it is for people in the food industry to live a double life with their eating disorder, and how she learned to find peace and form a new experience of life through renegotiating her relationship with food. We get into the importance of tuning into what we're feeling, breaking up with dieting, and acknowledging mess-ups as an inevitable part of the process. This is seriously a conversation you do not want to miss. Hannah Howard is a writer and food expert who spent her formative years in New York eating, drinking, serving, bartending, cooking on a line, flipping giant wheels of cheese, and managing restaurants. Her memoir, Feast: True Love in and Out of the Kitchen, debuted as Amazon's #1 bestselling memoir in 2018, and she has recently released her new book Plenty: A Memoir of Food & Family. Hannah has a BA from Columbia University in Creative Writing and Anthropology and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the Bennington Writing Seminars. Her work has been featured in New York Magazine, VICE, SELF, mic Thrillist, Serious Eats, Bust, refinery29, Salon, and the Chicago Review of Books. Grab your copy of Hannah's new book Plenty here! You can also find out more and by following Hannah on Instagram and checking out her other book Feast here. I'm obsessed with knowing all about you, so please follow (and DM!) me on Instagram and Facebook and find more on my website. We're in this together and the journey is going to be so awesome.
