As the U.S. marks one million people dead from COVID-19, scientists suggest that nearly one third of those deaths could have been prevented if more people had chosen to be vaccinated. NPR's Selena Simmons-Duffin reports. And even though the unvaccinated continue to make up a majority of COVID-19 cases and related hospitalizations, the number of Americans who say they won't get a COVID shot hasn't budged in a year. NPR's John Burnett spoke to a few of them.

Showing our children that our love is not based on how “good” they are is an important part of creating a lasting bond between parent and child. Not only that, but it can actually help our children regulate their emotions better, and gives them the emotional intelligence needed to navigate tough feelings for the rest of their lives. But how can we best explain this concept to our young kids? And how can we use these principles of kindness and positive language to lift ourselves up as parents? In this episode, I talk to child development expert and author Deborah Farmer Kris about how we can create a home where our children know they're loved unconditionally, while also showing ourselves the same compassion. Founder of Parenthood365, Deborah works as a parenting columnist and consultant for PBS KIDS, writes about child development for NPR's MindShift, and is the author of the “All the Time” picture book series. Her work has also been featured in The Washington Post, Boston Globe Magazine, and Oprah Daily. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ann-mckitrick/support

Please subscribe now for as little as 5$ and gain access to a community of over 800 awesome, curious, kind, funny, brilliant, generous souls Check out StandUpwithPete.com to learn more   Tim Wise, whom scholar and philosopher Cornel West calls, “A vanilla brother in the tradition of (abolitionist) John Brown,” is among the nation's most prominent antiracist essayists and educators. He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has also lectured internationally in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, law enforcement and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise's antiracism work traces back to his days as a college activist in the 1980s, fighting for divestment from (and economic sanctions against) apartheid South Africa. After graduation, he threw himself into social justice efforts full-time, as a Youth Coordinator and Associate Director of the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many groups organized in the early 1990s to defeat the political candidacies of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. From there, he became a community organizer in New Orleans' public housing, and a policy analyst for a children's advocacy group focused on combatting poverty and economic inequity. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN. Wise is the author of seven books, including his highly-acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, as well as Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. His forthcoming book, White LIES Matter: Race, Crime and the Politics of Fear in America, will be released in 2018. His essays have appeared on Alternet, Salon, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, Black Commentator, BK Nation, Z Magazine and The Root, which recently named Wise one of the “8 Wokest White People We Know.” Wise has been featured in several documentaries, including “The Great White Hoax: Donald Trump and the Politics of Race and Class in America,” and “White Like Me: Race, Racism and White Privilege in America,” both from the Media Education Foundation. He also appeared alongside legendary scholar and activist, Angela Davis, in the 2011 documentary, “Vocabulary of Change.” In this public dialogue between the two activists, Davis and Wise discussed the connections between issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and militarism, as well as inter-generational movement building and the prospects for social change. Wise is also one of five persons—including President Barack Obama—interviewed for a video exhibition on race relations in America, featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Additionally, his media presence includes dozens of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and NPR, feature interviews on ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 48 Hours, as well as videos posted on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms that have received over 20 million views. His podcast, “Speak Out with Tim Wise,” launched this fall and features weekly interviews with activists, scholars and artists about movement building and strategies for social change. Wise graduated from Tulane University in 1990 and received antiracism training from the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, in New Orleans. Ryan Busse is a former firearms executive who helped build one of the world's most iconic gun companies, and was nominated multiple times by industry colleagues for the prestigious Shooting Industry Person of The Year Award. Busse is an environmental advocate who served in many leadership roles for conservation organizations, including as an advisor for the United States Senate Sportsmen's Caucus and the Biden Presidential Campaign. He remains a proud outdoorsman, gun owner, father, and resident of Montana. About the book.... A long-time former executive at one of the country's top gun manufacturers reveals how his industry radicalized a large swathe of America, and explains how it must change before we can reduce gun violence and heal as a nation. Ryan Busse has traveled a long, circuitous path along the American gun journey. As an avid hunter, outdoorsman, and conservationist–all things that the firearms industry was built on–he rose to the highest ranks of the rapidly growing, multibillion-dollar firearms industry. But replacing self-imposed decency with rampant fear-mongering, racism, hardline conservative politics, massive profits from semi-automatic weapons sales, and McCarthyesque policing have driven Busse to do something few other gun executives have done: he's ending his 30-year career in the industry to tell its secrets. He watched the industry change from its smaller, less corporate and far-less-powerful form to the partisan, power-hungry entity it is today. He thought he could go up against the power of the industry from within, and over the years had made small inroads toward sensible gun ownership and use. But that's simply not possible anymore. This book is an insider's call-out, a voice-driven tale of personal transformation, and a fast ride through wild times and colorful characters that populate a much-speculated-about, but little-known industry. It's also a story of how authoritarianism spreads in the guise of freedom, how voicing one's conscience becomes an act of treason in a culture that demands sameness and loyalty.

On Saturday, a gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York — killing 10 people. Investigators believe the alleged gunman was motivated by a racist conspiracy known as “replacement theory.” The Washington Post reports on how this idea has moved from the fringes of the internet to mainstream media and politics. A Time reporter traveled to the North and South poles to see the impact of climate change there for for herself. Music-concert tickets have recently become way more expensive. Vice explains why. Ukraine won the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest. NPR spoke with the frontman of Kalush Orchestra, the band behind the winning entry, who said it’s a huge responsibility to represent the country at a global competition.

Kate Schutt is an award-winning singer-songwriter, guitarist, and producer whose voice NPR calls “glassily clear and glossily sweet.” Her songs have won top honors from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and ASCAP. American Songwriter calls Kate's newest album, Bright Nowhere, illuminating and “the work that ought to bring her the wider recognition she so decidedly deserves.” Kate has shared stages with Terri Lyne Carrington, Bill Frisell, Julian Lage, Scott Colley, and Bernard Perdie, to name only a few. When not making music, Kate is an elite life coach who specializes in helping people navigate big, pivotal, powerful moments, like being ready to die, creating new careers, starting new businesses, and chasing gold medals. Her TEDx talk, A Grief Casserole, has had over 50k views and has been called “nothing short of life-changing for people struggling with grief and loss.” In this conversation, we go deep on the subjects of grief, death, and loss. Kate shares how she sat with her mom as she was dying, and how that experience led to the songs on her new album. Join us to hear Kate's story, her wisdom about the creative process, and her inspiring music.  Show Highlights: Kate's journey as a musician, which began with piano and guitar at age 11 How songwriting for Kate is a process to get an answer to something—a very SLOW process with precision and restraint How Kate uses folders to create her “word horde” files of ideas and words to be used in songwriting How Kate marries music and lyrics in her songwriting process How Kate's reading shows creative energy and the amplification of poetry, perfectly explaining who she is and what she does The story of Kate's mother's cancer journey and the four-plus years that Kate enjoyed being with her and caring for her to maximize her quality of life How Kate's song, Victory on the Road to Defeat, came about during her mom's illness as a commentary on the western system of medicine How Kate was galvanized to be frank and honest with her mom during her illness–and how loved ones can show up for each other in similar instances What it means to “pre-grieve” and prepare yourself for the death of a loved one–and even your own death Why Kate has “ready to die” practices to remind her that we are all “on the edge” between life and death Why Kate's experience with the loss of her mother has made her more aware of the sacredness of time and the need for people around her to know what they mean to her What it means to Kate to live in her purpose Hear Kate's answers to rapid-fire questions about helpful advice, grounding habits, favorite hot beverage, last meal on earth, morning routine, inspiring people, something people might not know about her, and what's bringing her joy right now.

Melodie Edwards is the host and senior producer of the Modern West Podcast which dives into the history of the west, and how it's shaped our landscapes and modern culture while digging up little-known facts about the past. The show is produced for Wyoming Public Media (aka the state's NPR station) which is now going into its 5th season so for me, it was great to connect with someone who is doing some really great work out there. Being a podcast producer isn't the only thing Melodie is though. She's a bookstore owner and writer, all of which we get into in this episode.The reason Melodie is on the show is to explore this weird crossroad between the past and the present with regard to how we as backpackers and hikers interact with the landscape. For example, for anyone who isn't from the west, or specifically the Montana/Wyoming area, there are a lot of really large ranches in some very beautiful places and those ranches often graze cattle on land that you and I might hike through. So, you could be hiking along and bump into a cow or two, OR maybe you can't access certain areas because it's a private ranch.There's a lot of nuance to this and as we move further and further away from the past when ranching was a major industry, we begin to see a bit of a rub between those generational ranchers and the public who may want to either access their land, pass through it, or find a way to minimize livestock impacts on the landscape. It's a lot, and this is just one aspect of this whole topic.As the producer of the Modern West Podcast and doing her investigative work on topics like this, Melodie is joining the show to help enlighten or educate me (us), on where we've come from, where we are, and where we're going. This podcast isn't always about something clearly related to backpacking because I'd miss out on opportunities like this one to further educate myself on things like land access and the modernization of the west. To me, it's conversations like this one that allow me to look at things through a different lens so that when I'm out there enjoying myself, I know what the heck I'm benefitting from or how it even came to be.As I said, it's a lot and Melodie is here to help me begin to sort it all out.Emory, By LandBy Land LinksLEARN HOW TO BACKPACK https://www.learnhowtobackpack.com/YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChSSISEgIfwYz2cc0aHQj3gFACEBOOK GROUP https://www.facebook.com/groups/1192723304224313/INSTAGRAM https://www.instagram.com/emory_by_landDONATE: https://byland.co/donateShow Notes and LinksThe Modern West Podcast https://themodernwest.org/IntroductionsMelodie's backgroundThe history of the cowboy in the westThe impact that cattle ranchers have had on the landscapeHow we got to where we are today with the modern landscapesHow cattle did on the landscapeFinding a balanceFinding common groundClosing thoughts

Sasa Woodruff loves food—she's been accused of having far too many cookbooks. But in 2019, a phone call from an unknown caller changed her relationship to eating. A genetic counselor called to tell her that she had a rare genetic mutation which could lead to a lethal form of stomach cancer.The only way to prevent that cancer was to get her stomach surgically removed. While she's now grateful for the information that genetic testing gave her, Woodruff's story raises questions about what kind of information patients should have and how they can use it. Professor of law and philosophy at Duke University, Nita Farahany and professor of law and biosciences at Stanford University, Hank Greely discuss the implications of growing access to genetic testing and how to weigh health decisions.
