Known as the Texas Triangle, the area from Dallas to Houston and over to San Antonio/Austin would be the 15th largest economy in the world, producing $1.2 Billion in economic output.  That's equivalent to Mexico or Spain.  And seven in 10 Texans live there.  So, if it is the economic engine driving our state, why isn't it also driving our politics?  And because the politics outside of this Triangle have come to dominate the state, some experts fear it could kill the Texas growth model.  At least one major company has already said it would help pay for any employee who wishes to relocate.  In this episode of Y'all-itics, the Jasons are joined by Steven Pedigo, the Director of the LBJ Urban Lab in Austin and a professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs.  Pedigo says if you want to understand the country, then understand our state, because Texas is the future of America… unless the direction of our politics pulls the rug out from under all of us.   Guest: Steven Pedigo, LBJ Urban Lab Director

Producer/Host: Natalie Springuel Maine coastal and ocean issues: From the Sea Up #1 With the holiday season upon us, it is time to talk seafood. Fresh, sustainable, Maine seafood that is! For the next three episodes of Coastal Conversations, we are featuring a series of stories produced by The First Coast and the Island Institute. The series, called From the Sea Up, introduces the people and species that make Maine seafood so incredible, both for our taste buds and for our coastal economy. It's perfect listening to inspire your holiday feasts! First up today, we hear how Luke's Lobster and the Island Institute formed a creative partnership to build resilience in the seafood supply chain in the wake of the pandemic's early shut down of traditional seafood markets. Our second story today explores the freshness and flavor of Maine dayboat scallops that have been caught, sold, and eaten or frozen in less than 24 hours. These are inspiring stories about people in the Gulf of Maine who are finding ways to ensure the future of our oceans while diversifying our seafood economy. Both of our stories today on Coastal Conversations were produced by Galen Koch of The First Coast as part of an Island Institute podcast called “From the Sea Up.” And we are thrilled to announce that we'll be featuring more of these great stories in upcoming episodes of Coastal Conversations. I mentioned at the top of the hour that a lot of folks were involved in producing these stories and we wanted to make sure to thank them here. Ok, here goes. First, From the Sea Up is presented by the Island Institute and produced by Galen Koch of The First Coast. The stories are made possible by the Fund for Maine Islands and a partnership between the Island Institute, College of the Atlantic, Luke's Lobster, Maine Sea Grant, and The First Coast. For our first story today, thanks go to Rob Snyder, Luke Holden, Ben Conniff, Merritt Carey, and Sam Belknap. For the second story, thanks go to Togue Brawn, Dan Miller, Tad Miller, Merritt Carey, Raymie Upham, and Silas Miller. If you are interested in learning more about how to purchase local sustainable seafood for the holidays, you can check out the online markets LukesLobster.com and at DowneastDayboat.com that were talked about in today's stories. And finally, extra gratitude goes to Galen Koch, the producer of these stories, for helping us get them on the air on Coastal Conversations, here at WERU community radio. About the host: Natalie Springuel has hosted Coastal Conversation's since 2015, with support from the University of Maine Sea Grant where she has served as a marine extension associate for 20 years. In 2019, Springuel received an award for Public Affairs programming from the Maine Association of Broadcasters for the Coastal Conversations show called “Portland's Working Waterfront.” Springuel is passionate about translating science, sharing stories, and offering a platform for multiple voices to weigh in on complex coastal and ocean issues.

What does America's growing dependence on modern information technology systems mean for the management of its nuclear weapons? In his new book, Cyber Threats and Nuclear Weapons (Stanford University Press, 2021), Dr. Herb Lin explores the promise and peril of managing the bomb in the digital age. A Senior Research Scholar at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, Dr. Lin cautions that management of the future nuclear enterprise will require a series of difficult tradeoffs: between integrity and reliability, functionality and security, and usability and security. Moving beyond a historical focus on the command and control of nuclear forces, Lin argues that these compromises will affect each aspect of the US nuclear enterprise, from technology acquisition and maintenance to operations and employment. On the podcast, I talk to Dr. Lin about what historical near-misses can tell us about future nuclear threats, how digitization could magnify the risks of deception and misperception, and the applicability of Silicon Valley-style software development practices for the Pentagon. John Sakellariadis is a 2021-2022 Fulbright US Student Research Grantee.

Last winter holiday season we were "locked in" because of Covid - spending time only with those within our "bubble". With vaccinations we are able to gather again for Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations, which means planning events and minding our manners! We'll provide a refresher course on manners during this "almost over Covid pandemic". Do you still need to mask up? Do you ask for vaccination proof before allowing guests in your home? How do you handle conversations on tough issues like politics, race and religion? On the entertaining side, what are the "must haves" to be a successful host? And how do you make your home and holiday table festive? Tune in for decorating, and hosting tips from Mia Byrd, Founder and Creative Director, Byrdhouse Creative Brands; and etiquette advice from Monica Edwards, Owner and Innkeeper, Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast.

Fairfax County, Virginia parent Laura Murphy has been trying since 2013 to have the book "Beloved" by Nobel Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winning author Toni Morrison banned from Fairfax County Public School libraries. In 2021, another of Ms. Morrison's books, "The Bluest Eye", is the target of removal from Virginia Beach Public Schools, this time by VB School Board members Victoria Manning and Laura Hughes. "The Bluest Eye" is one of six books they want to see removed from VBPS libraries and high school curriculum, because of their racial and/or sexual content. Parental involvement in curriculum decisions in public schools became a political issue during the recent gubernatorial campaign, with incoming Governor Glenn Youngkin promising to restore the rights of parents to have a say in their child's education. So who gets to decide what children learn, and is banning books the way to achieve the goal? We take a deep dive into the issue with author, former Poet Laureate, and professor emeritus at ODU, Tim Seibles; Ph.D candidate and curriculum and award-winning community program developer, Jimmeka Anderson; and Donna Graham Elliott, Ed.D, retired high school administrator, instructional leader and English teacher in the Virginia Beach School System, who currently serves as an adjunct professor at Tidewater Community College and University Supervisor of English at the College of William and Mary.

Chronic inflammatory diseases are on the rise, especially in so-called industrialized countries that have been structured by the hands of colonialism. Could this collective inflammation we are experiencing be a sign from our bodies that we are indeed mired in systemically unhealthy living conditions? What we might have once understood as an individual ailment, must now be understood as a side effect of daily exposures of air pollution, economic precarity, contaminated water, police brutality, mounting debt, and an overall increasingly difficult social structure to stay afloat in. In this week's episode, Dr. Rupa Marya and Raj Patel discuss the biological impacts of oppressive social structures. We are left with the resounding reminder that inflammation is an indicator that we must change our collective ways in order to heal, and in today's world that requires us to dismantle oppressive systems and expand our understanding of health beyond inadequate colonial definitions. Dr. Rupa Marya is a physician, an activist, a mother, and a composer. She is an associate professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where she practices and teaches internal medicine. She is a cofounder of the Do No Harm Coalition, a collective of health workers committed to addressing disease through structural change. Raj Patel is a research professor at the University of Texas at Austin's Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, a professor in the University's Department of Nutrition, and a research associate at Rhodes University, South Africa. He is the author of Stuffed and Starved and The Value of Nothing.

Ecologist Nick Haddad was sitting in his new office at North Carolina State University when the phone rang. On the other end of the line was... The U.S. Army. The Army folks told him, “Look, there's this endangered butterfly on our base at Fort Bragg, and it's the only place in the world that it exists. But it's about to go extinct. And we need your help to save it.” Nick had never even heard of the butterfly. In fact, he barely knew much about butterflies in general. Nonetheless, he said yes to Uncle Sam. “How hard could it be?” he wondered. Turns out, pretty hard. He'd have to trick beavers, dodge bombs, and rethink the fundamental nature of life and death in order to rescue this butterfly before it disappeared forever.
