The new Virginia Governor Glen Youngkin is working to ban so-called "divisive concepts" including 'Critical Race Theory' in the state's schools. On Today's Show: Brian Jones, director of the Center for Educators and Schools at New York Public Library and contributor to Black Lives Matter at School: An Uprising for Educational Justice (Haymarket Books, 2020) discusses how such a ban might impact curricula, why some misunderstand and reject CRT and the value of including race in school lessons.
Earlier this month, Ronna McDaniel, Chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, wrote a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates—the independent, bipartisan organization that has convened general election debates since the 1980's. In her letter, McDaniel said that the RNC would boycott the presidential debates during the upcoming election cycle. That is – unless the commission was willing to meet its demands. The move is the latest refusal by Republicans to meet political norms. And it also poses the question: What – if anything – would be lost if the presidential debates didn't happen? Brooke spoke to Alex Shepherd, staff writer at The New Republic who's article on the subject was titled: “Let the Presidential Debates Die.”
Let's go back to 1970's Chicago when the mob ruled the courts. What could go wrong? I had an incredible conversation with the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Jake Halpern. Jake is the host of the new investigative podcast, Mob Land, which just dropped this week! The story centers around Bob Cooley - a mafia "fixer" turned FBI cooperator. Jake and I get into whether or not Bob can be trusted, what justice is or isn't — especially when corruption exists — and I think I stun Jake into silence with a Real Housewives analogy. Jake is an excellent storyteller making this a highly enjoyable conversation. Listen, enjoy, then go check out Mob Land!

Remi Bumstead did what all of us have talked about doing at some point: buying an old bus and driving it across Africa to donate to a school of deaf kids. Ok, maybe not all of us. Remi's bus, dubbed the Janga Bus, was bought in Germany, fixed up in the UK, and driven south from London across Europe and into Africa en route to The Gambia. Upon arrival, Remi and his trip partner Alexandra Zeitlin donated the bus to the Kadect School for the Deaf. Oh, and they turned the entire project into a documentary film – aptly titled Janga Bus – that debuts on Matador Network this month.It's an inspiring story of providing a much-needed form of transportation to deaf schoolchildren, who wouldn't otherwise be able to get to school in their rural part of the country. On today's pod, Remi joins the guys to talk all things overland travel. On the docket are sketchy border crossings, hiding film gear from international authorities, and how they pulled off this incredible feat. There's talk of breakdowns, unforgettable meals, and the incredible people Remi and Alexandra encountered on the journey.In Hot Takes, Eben brings up the practicality (or lack thereof) of vegan restaurants in a world that long ago accepted veggie dishes as normal.

Journalism has evolved through time. Covering a myriad of topics from news, to entertainment, to real estate technology, journalists have surely become versatile throughout the years. https://www.linkedin.com/in/craig-rowe-26b3669 (Craig Rowe), a real estate technology reporter for http://www.inman.com/ (Inman News), joins Bill Risser to talk about his role and the knowledge he is able to impart on the team. Craig recalls how his love for writing and his interest in real estate served a great purpose in his position at Inman. Listen in as Craig walks us through his summers as a kid, to how he got involved in real estate and settling in as one of Inman's greatest assets. --- Craig Rowe, Real Estate Technology Reporter, Inman News In this episode, I'm going to talk to a copywriter, journalist, and backcountry guide. I'm going to talk to Craig Rowe. He is a real estate tech reporter for https://www.inman.com/ (Inman News). I met Craig at the Inman Event. He's a neat guy and has a great background. We're going to have a lot of fun exploring some stuff outside of the world of real estate and talk about how things work at Inman. It's a very interesting conversation. Let's get this thing started. Craig, welcome to the show. It's great to be here, Bill. Thanks for having me. We met at the Inman Event in Las Vegas. It was so much fun getting back in front of people again. https://www.intentionaliteas.com/ (Molly McKinley) knows you well. It was nice having a conversation. I have read a lot of your columns. Tech is my thing, and it's your thing. I appreciate all the work, insight, and effort that goes into those. We're going to talk a lot about that and also some more stuff as well. I like starting where people grew up. It's always fun for me to see these different parts of the country. For you, it's Upstate New York. First of all, I had no idea where Caledonia was. My first thought was, “There is Rome, Syracuse, and Ithaca. It has to be somewhere in that neighborhood.” I'm not too far off. You're not too far off. It is South of Rochester. Let's talk about that upbringing growing up in New York. We're going to talk about what you're doing now. I'm going to assume that a lot of who you are now was influenced by where you grew up. I loved growing up in a small town, and I am now full circle right back in a similar location here in Northern California. Caledonia was neat. It was a small town. I had a lot of close friends. I have three older brothers. In all our lawns, we had all these families in the neighborhood. All the backyards met, and every family down the street had six kids, and the back of us also had 5 or 6. There was this amalgamation of families and all these kids of different age groups all the time interacting. It was very Americana for the most part in this little town. We spent all-time outdoors. We are very much free range. You could open the door at 8:00 AM, and I'll come back at 8:00 PM. That was pretty much it. In those hours, I could be anywhere in the local trout stream fishing, and at some point during the day, you throw the pole back in the garage without your parents even knowing, and you take off again. I could be riding my BMX bike for two hours, and in the afternoon, we're playing football, Wiffle ball, baseball, or something. That was it every day throughout the Summer until Winter stopped us from being able to do that stuff. I grew up in San Diego. It's a little bit different situation. When the street lights went on, I had to be home, that mentality, which was cool. It is that whole connectivity you talked about. It wasn't people going into a garage, the service store, and to the house. You could get home and never see anybody if you wanted to. That was not the case for you. Everybody knew everybody. I love that. We're going to talk about how much of an outdoorsman you are. We will get to that later. As you continue, you end up going to college locally. You stuck...

Michael Pollan is one of our most revelatory explorers of the interaction between the human and natural worlds — especially the plants with which we have, as he says, co-evolved — from food to caffeine to psychedelics. In this episode of our series, The Future of Hope, Wintering's Katherine May draws him out on the burgeoning human inquiry and science to which he's now given himself over — the transformative applications of altered states for healing trauma and depression, for end-of-life care — and the thrilling matter of grasping what consciousness is for. This is an informative, intriguing, utterly uncategorizable conversation.You may know Katherine May from her On Being conversation with Krista about “wintering” as a season in the natural world — and a recurrent season in every human life. She too operates out of a deep curiosity about the human mind — the remarkable complexity of mental states and well-being — informed in part by her own welcome mid-life diagnosis of autism and her love of cold-water swimming. Her books of fiction and memoir include: Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times, The Electricity of Every Living Thing, and Burning Out. She is also the editor of an anthology of essays about motherhood, called The Best, Most Awful Job. Her podcast is The Wintering Sessions.Michael Pollan is a professor at the University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. His many bestselling books include The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, and most recently, This Is Your Mind on Plants. In 2020, he co-founded the UC Berkeley Center for the Science of Psychedelics.Find the transcript for this show at onbeing.org.

This week we are airing another episode from the show "La Brega"a podcast about life in Puerto Rico and hosted by former OTM producer Alana Casanova-Burgess. During the early 1950s, the children of Puerto Rico were invited to an icy winter spectacle. Mayor Felisa Rincón de Gautier, the charismatic mayor of San Juan, arranged for Eastern Airlines to bring a plane-load of snow for a snowball fight in the city. It was a feat that has become legend for a whole generation. But while this winter wonderland came to San Juan free of charge, it wasn't without a cost. In this special episode of La Brega, we learn how the snow was actually transported to San Juan from Hilda Jimenez, Doña Fela's assistant. And we hear from some of the people who experienced it up-close. Ignacio Rivera (of the radio program Fuego Cruzado) was 8 years old and threw snowballs; the artist Antonio Martorell remembers that too, but also sees the event as part of Puerto Rico's troubling colonial relationship with the United States. Seventy years later – when ice is at an even greater premium – journalist and author Ana Teresa Toro says Puerto Rico is still grappling with how to understand that special delivery. To learn more about Doña Fela, we recommend a visit to the Casa Museo Felisa Rincón de Gautier. You can learn more about Antonio Martorell in a recent documentary called El Accidente Feliz. His portrait of the mayor is here. The snowball fight is also the subject of a piece by the artist Sofía Gallisá Muriente, called Lluvia con nieve, now part of Whitney's collection. Ana Teresa Toro's new book of poetry is “Flora animal.”
