For this Fourth of July, enjoy some of our favorite recent conversations: Justin Gest, associate professor of Policy and Government at George Mason University and the author of Majority Minority (Oxford University Press, 2022), talks about the demographic trends in the U.S. to 'majority minority' and puts efforts to resist it (like Pres. Trump's attempts to interfere with the 2020 Census) in context. Roosevelt Montás, senior lecturer in American Studies and English at Columbia University's Center for American Studies and director of its Freedom and Citizenship Programs, and author of Rescuing Socrates: How the Great Books Changed My Life and Why They Matter for a New Generation (Princeton University Press November 16, 2021), argues in favor of a collegiate core curriculum and talks about how the 'Great Books' influenced his life. Curtis Deutsch, professor of Geosciences and the High Meadows Environmental Institute at Princeton University, discusses the dire consequences of unchecked, human-driven emissions for ocean life as laid out in a new report he's co-authored, "Avoiding ocean mass extinction from climate warming."

And are the shows a positive representation the queer community? Listen to find out.

How to Become a Pro-Life Advocate: Discussing Abortion w/Frederica Mathewes-Green (Encore Release)

Hank Unplugged: Essential Christian Conversations

The U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn Roe v. Wade in a 5-4 decision. In light of the Supreme Court ruling, we would like to present an encore presentation of Hank Hanegraaff's conversation with Frederica Mathewes-Green on how she went from being a fierce advocate for abortion to becoming a pro-life advocate. When Roe v. Wade was decided almost half a century ago, Frederica Mathewes-Green believed that the landmark decision didn't go far enough to ensure adequate abortion access for women. However, everything changed after she read an article titled “What I Saw at the Abortion” in a 1976 edition of the magazine Esquire that detailed the violent act against both woman and child that takes place when an abortion is performed. Simply put, there was no way that a peace-loving feminist could support this violence against both woman and child, and just like that she became a pro-life advocate. Frederica Mathewes-Green went on to become a pre-eminent voice for the lives of the unborn and—importantly—the mothers who carried these children. Almost everyone on both sides of the debate can agree on one thing—abortion is a miserable choice, as Frederica emphasized in Real Choices: Listening to Women, Looking for Alternatives to Abortion, “No woman wants an abortion as she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche.

Philosopher Amia Srinivasan, bestselling author of The Right to Sex, in conversation with the author of Three Women, Lisa Taddeo. '[This] ambitious, magisterial work stands out in the ongoing tide of dull, girl boss feminism arguing for personal empowerment over collective liberation . . . In a world of easy, one-dimensional answers, [Srinivasan] is unquestionably the real deal' – Vogue Amia Srinivasan is the author of one of the most talked about books in recent times, The Right to Sex, which is published in paperback this May. A landmark collection of essays from one of the most exciting young philosophers at work today, it examines the politics and ethics of sex in the twenty-first century – from pornography to incels, rape culture to sex work. Lisa Taddeo is the New York Times-bestselling author of Three Women and Animal. For this special online event hosted by 5x15, two literary stars come together to discuss this groundbreaking book and the issues it raises. Amia Srinivasan was born in 1984 in Bahrain and raised in London, New York, Singapore and Taiwan. She is currently the Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory at All Souls College, Oxford, and has held permanent or visiting academic posts at University College London, Yale, NYU and UCLA. The Right to Sex is her first book and was named Blackwell's Book of the Year 2021. It was acclaimed by critics and authors ranging from Judith Butler and Katherine Rundell, to Pandora Sykes and Emily Ratajkowski. Lisa Taddeo's Three Women (2019) became a world-wide sensation, forever changing how we think about women and desire. Nearly a decade in the making, Three Women was hailed instantly as a feminist classic – a staggering work of nonfiction that was the result of thousands of hours spent in the company of its subjects. Lisa has contributed to New York magazine, Esquire, Elle, Glamour and many other publications, and her short stories have won two Pushcart Prizes. Her debut novel, Animal, was published in 2021 and described by Marian Keyes as ‘like a series of grenades exploding'. 5x15 brings together outstanding individuals to tell of their lives, passions and inspirations.

If you don't recognize the name James Calvin Wilsey, odds are you've heard him. His hypnotic guitar work on Chris Isaak's top ten single from 1989 “Wicked Game” made Isaak an international star. But there is much more to his story than his guitar work on this iconic song.Goldberg's book is an incredibly in-depth look into the dark side of San Francisco in the 1970s & 80s, and the dark side of rock ‘n roll in general, through the wild life of one Jimmy Wilsey. Wilsey was the “heart and soul” of the San Francisco punk band the Avengers, and worked with Chris Isaak for over a decade before he crashed and burned. Wilsey's story is the story of San Francisco punk rock, the story of one of the greatest punk bands, the Avengers, “the story of every working musician,” and the nightmare of drug addiction. It's the story of the dark side of rock & roll. “Wicked Game – The True Story of Guitarist James Calvin Wilsey” includes over 100 photos and flyers by avant-garde artist Bruce Conner, Avengers singer/songwriter Penelope Houston, Blondie's Chris Stein, Ruby Ray, Chester Simpson, Sue Brisk, Marcus Leatherdale, Amy Starks, Michael Zagaris, Hugh Brown, James Stark, Jimmy Wilsey and others. Author Michael Goldberg is a journalist, novelist, and photographer. He's been interviewing and photographing musicians since he was seventeen. He was a senior writer at Rolling Stone magazine for a decade. His writing also appeared in Esquire, New Musical Express, Creem, DownBeat, New York Rocker, Trouser Press, Musician, New West, Vibe, New Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and other publications.Purchase a copy of “Wicked Game: The True Story of Guitarist James Calvin Wilsey" through Hozac Records: https://hozacrecords.com/product/wicked-game/Listen to a playlist of the music discussed in this episode: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2UHY7zjdibwNjB8Wv0t7Py?si=7abfc172502e4627Read Michael Goldberg's article on James Wilsey's passing for Rolling Stone: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/king-of-slow-guitarist-james-calvin-wilsey-784335/The Booked On Rock Website: www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockINSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast/?hl=enSupport Your Local Bookstore!

My guest is AJ jacobs  A.J. Jacobs is an author, journalist, lecturer, and human guinea pig. His strategy as a writer is to dive into something he's curious about and actually live it.  He has written ten books, four of which are New York Times bestsellers that combine memoir, science, humor, and a dash of self-help. His most recent book is The Puzzler: One Man's Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, from Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life.  AJ is also editor-at-large at Esquire magazine, a commentator on NPR, and a columnist for Mental Floss magazine. He has appeared on Oprah, The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, The Dr. Oz Show, Conan, and The Colbert Report. He has given several TED talks, including ones about living biblically, creating a one-world family, and living healthily. The viewership count of the two I saw was over 6M combined.  On the podcast, I probe into his life experiments so we cover… How I came across his work in Esquire We cover some of his more notable experiments  What he took away from reading the entire Encyclopedia Britannica in his quest to learn everything in the world.  The hilarious problems with being radically honest  What he learned from living the rules of the old testament for a year - in Manhattan  He discusses which of his experiments was the most profound and life-changing  We talk about why being grateful is hard and what he learned about gratitude from thanking over 1,000 people  How we have the happiness equation backward,  We talk about his latest book and the benefits of puzzles  What mazes have to do with psychological flexibility  I always strive for the meaningful on the show, but sometimes that can lean toward a bit of the somber - which is fine - but it is wonderful when you can get a guest like AJ who is breezy, funny, AND profound; hard to pull that off but he does it.  I instantly liked him - I think you will too. Enjoy!

The world is in a bleak state right now, and every day it feels a little more certain that the elite power brokers who control our society are not going to do anything to make things better. But giving up on the possibility of a better world and giving in to hopelessness and despair is not an option; if we're going to get out of this mess, we have to fight.In her new acclaimed book Fight Like Hell: The Untold History of American Labor, journalist and organizer Kim Kelly writes about working people who faced similarly impossible odds throughout US history but refused to accept the status quo and fought to change their circumstances. From freed Black washerwomen in the Reconstruction-era South to Jewish immigrant garment workers in early 20th-century New York, to incarcerated workers, sex workers, and disabled workers fighting to have their rights and humanity recognized, Fight Like Hell reminds readers today that working people's struggle for justice, equality, and dignity is just that—a struggle. In this special discussion, hosted by Red Emma's, a worker cooperative bookstore, cafe, and community events space in Baltimore, TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez speaks with Kelly about writing the history of that struggle and about the people who are carrying that struggle forward today.Kim Kelly is a freelance journalist and organizer based in Philadelphia. Her work on labor, class, politics, and culture has appeared in a wide range of outlets, including Teen Vogue, The New Republic, The Washington Post, The Baffler, Esquire, and The Real News Network.
