“Residential segregation not only affects opportunity, it alters politics”. That's one of the claims of my guest today, Georgetown scholar Sheryll Cashin. In this episode, we discuss Cashin's new book, titled White Space, Black Hood: Opportunity Hoarding and Segregation in the Age of Inequality. She describes her own upbringing as a daughter of civil rights activists and how this has animated her own work; how affluent white spaces are not only separate to low-poverty areas, but require them; the group of people she calls Descendants, whose ancestors were enslaved, and who live today in low-opportunity spaces; and what it means for white people to have “cultural dexterity”. We end up talking about what love has to do with pretty much all of this.    Sheryll Cashin Sheryll Cashin is a Professor of Law, Civil Rights and Social Justice at Georgetown University working on topics including race relations and inequality in the United States. She is the author of several books and numerous articles including commentary for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and is currently serving as a contributing editor to Politico.

On COI #179, Kyle Anzalone refutes Max Boot's recent Washington Post op-ed arguing against boycotting Israel. In the article, Boot admits that the reason we must reject BDS is that the movement calls for a “right of return” for Palestinian refugees. He admits that Palestinians cannot live in their homeland because that would make Israel a majority Palestinian state. Boot concludes his article by cowardly suggesting that people who oppose Israel only do so because they harbor a hatred for Jews.  Kyle breaks down Joe Biden's gaffe at his town hall with Anderson Cooper. Biden said the US was committed to militarily defending Taiwan. However, the decades-long US policy - and US law - says that the US takes a position of “strategic ambiguity” on Taiwan's defense. The White House then walked back Biden's blunder saying US policy towards Taiwan remains unchanged. While the Biden statement was undiplomatic, it is representative of the increasing US aggression towards China.

A conversation from the archives with Vermont author and former president of Vermont College of Fine Arts, Thomas Christopher Greene, about his novel The Headmaster's Wife (Thomas Dunne).  On Friday, at a football game in Burlington High School's stadium, community members were treated to a very special halftime show featuring many students and teachers appearing in drag. According to The Washington Post, and yes, this was covered by The Washington Post, the idea came from Andrew LeValley, an English teacher and alliance adviser at the school. He is quoted as saying, “I was just really hoping to give our students — who are both out and the students that were in the stands who are not out — a moment to shine and feel loved, and know that there is a place for them in public schools.” I loved reading this story, both the spirit behind the event and the support with which the performance was met. This week's Write the Book Prompt is to write about someone who wears clothing that is new to them and perhaps makes a statement about who they are or how they are feeling. It doesn't necessarily have to be about dressing in drag, though that would be great. Also, though, a costume, a uniform, a borrowed outfit. What is the backstory? How does the person feel, dressed up in a new way? Do people notice? How do they react? Is there any consequence or change that comes about as a result? Good luck with your work in the coming week, and tune in next week for another prompt or suggestion. Music Credit: Aaron Shapiro

In this 101st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.Beginning with a discussion of Room 101 from Orwell's 1984, we then share excerpts from Ross Douthat's forthcoming book, The Deep Place, with discussion of how we arrive at medical consensus, how long-term illness is often misunderstood by the medical establishment, and how weirdos on the internet can get things more right than the authorities. Rose and McCullough's research paper on myocarditis was pulled by the journal with no explanation; the letter that came back from the editor had no info in it. The Washington Post makes the extraordinary claim that “the public is observing the scientific method up-close and in real time.” New research finds that obstetricians are human and fallible, and prone to the same kinds of cognitive distortions that we all are. We read and then discuss C.S. Lewis's short 1948 essay, On Living in an Atomic Age.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for October 23, 2021 is: bogus • BOH-gus • adjective Bogus means "not real or genuine"—it is synonymous with fake or counterfeit. // The art dealer proved the painting to be bogus. See the entry > Examples: "Investigators said Talens … cheated manufacturers and merchants of more than $31 million by producing bogus coupons that gave customers merchandise at steep discounts—or for free." — Jonathan Edwards, The Washington Post. 18 Sept. 2021 Did you know? In the early 19th century, a "bogus" was a machine used to make counterfeit coins. No one knows for sure how this coin-copying contraption got its name, but before long bogus became a name for funny money or for a fraudulent imitation of any kind. The more common "phony" adjective followed.

On Friday's Mark Levin Show, the Washington Post and has done its best to downplay the Holocaust yet they were quick to attack Glenn Youngkin as an anti-Semite for criticizing George Soros' political influence on public education. Soros has promoted radical left-wing policies for decades. Then, the border is in the worst condition it's ever been in! Despite being the most tolerant and beneficent nation, the left insists on expanding immigration with an open border. Despite welcoming the downtrodden, Democrat policies like these welcome drug traffickers, human smugglers, and murderers - a policy like this is not safe or sustainable. Later, blue-collar, first responders, truckers, and grocery store staff deserve our thanks. As do the men and women of the border patrol who protect us from MS-13 gangs yet President Biden is willing to fire them all over a vaccine mandate. What happens when a citizen has an emergency and calls 911 but the first responders have been laid off because of Biden's mandate? Afterward, Biden's not a union man. Driving up the cost of food and gas while mismanaging the supply chain isn't a union issue. Allowing hundreds of thousands of people to illegally cross the border into the United States is not a union issue. This is a Democrat issue that Joe Biden and Terry McAuliffe support, as is the push for transgenderism and racism in the classroom. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

It's casual Friday! Sam and Emma host Dave Weigel, national political correspondent for the Washington Post, as they walk through how the Democrats are approaching the midterms (and what the voters think). Dave, Emma, and Sam jump into how the infrastructure and reconciliation failures are being read by voters, discussing how candidates are bringing it up on the campaign trail, why the average voter sees legislative hold up as evidence of policy failure, and why, despite their inability to emphasize its importance, Democrats should see Republican critiques failing to stick as a success. They also cover Biden's falling approval rating, and the perspective of people who'd really hoped he would bring back at least some sense of normalcy coming out of COVID. Next, they jump into the Republican culture war shifting the battlegrounds into the schools and the spotlight onto the children, with their aim taking on critical race theory, trans rights, and school-based vax and mask mandates, and look at the VA McAuliffe v. Youngkin race as a key example of how Dems can, or cannot, handle this fight.  This brings them to discuss how Democrats are utilizing Trump in the run-up to 2022 midterms, the importance of fear in generating midterm turnout, how they're capitalizing on 1/6, and they wrap up the interview with a summary of the different tactics Republicans and Democrats are taking into next year. Emma and Sam also discuss the state of reconciliation heading into next week and Biden's performance on the CNN town hall last night with Anderson Cooper. And in the second half Sam and Emma are joined by Jason Myles, co-host of the This Is Revolution podcast, as they dissect his Medium article, “I Was a Teenage Anarchist," on the growth of the punk movement around the concepts of authenticity and deconstruction, how that hindered its growth and ability to alter the mainstream, instead, setting it up to be absorbed by the machine, and what that can teach us about the state of the online left today. They also touch on the marketing of anti-capitalism, from Parasite to the Joker, and what it means to be a “sellout.” Emma and Sam wrap up the fun half with Rachel Hamm's claim to her prophetical witch hunt, Jim Jordan's objection to protocol, plus, your IMs!

In this episode, I sit down with Vivek Wadhwa to talk about his pivot from tech entrepreneur and big tech enthusiast, to critic and activist. We talk about his path to tech and then to his activism in education, his research into tech innovation, and his research into the importance of global diversity when considering questions of how we imagine, innovate, and build. Vivek Wadhwa is a Distinguished Fellow at Harvard Law School's Labor and Worklife Program. He is the author of five best-selling books: From Incremental to Exponential; Your Happiness Was Hacked; The Driver in the Driverless Car; Innovating Women; and The Immigrant Exodus. He has been a globally syndicated columnist for The Washington Post and held appointments at Carnegie Mellon University, Duke University, Stanford Law School, UC Berkeley, Emory University, and Singularity University. In 2012, the U.S. Government awarded Wadhwa distinguished recognition as an “Outstanding American by Choice” for his “commitment to this country and to the common civic values that unite us as Americans.” He was also named one of the world's “Top 100 Global Thinkers” by Foreign Policy magazine in that year; in June 2013, he was on TIME magazine's list of “Tech 40”, one of forty of the most influential minds in tech; and in September 2015, he was second on a list of “ten men worth emulating” in The Financial Times. In 2018, he was awarded Silicon Valley Forum's Visionary Award, a list of luminaries “who have made Silicon Valley synonymous with creativity and life-changing advancements in technology.”   Wadhwa is an advisor to several governments; mentors entrepreneurs; and writes for top publications across the globe. He has also researched Silicon Valley's diversity, or the lack of it.  He documented that women entrepreneurs have the same backgrounds and motivations as men do, but are rare in the ranks of technology CEOs and CTOs. He is the founding president of the Carolinas chapter of The IndUS Entrepreneurs (TIE), a non-profit global network intended to foster entrepreneurship.  He has been featured in thousands of articles in publications worldwide, including the Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Forbes magazine, The Washington Post, The New York Times, U.S. News and World Report, and Science Magazine, and has made many appearances on U.S. and international TV stations, including CBS 60 Minutes, PBS, CNN, ABC, NBC, CNBC, and the BBC.

Elisha Wiesel on His Father's Jewish and Zionist Legacy

When Elie Wiesel was fifteen years old, the Nazis murdered his mother and sister and enslaved him and his father in Buchenwald. After the U.S. Army liberated the camp in April 1945, Wiesel went to France, where he studied the humanities and worked as a writer, and then to New York, where he became a professor and an activist for human rights. Wiesel, who died in July 2016, wrote some 60 books, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, and was counselor to presidents, senators, kings, and prime ministers. Recently, he and his family were honored by the installation of a sculpture of his likeness in the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. The manner of this honoring introduces some particularly vexing Jewish questions, which his son Elisha discussed in a recent Washington Post op-ed. Elie Wiesel was a moral hero, and a particularly Jewish one. His family worried that his memorialization in a church would emphasize the universalist elements of his legacy, and discard particular Jewish elements of his moral persona—including his Jewish observance and his Zionist commitments. Elisha joins Mosaic's editor Jonathan Silver to think about these questions, his father's legacy, and more on this week's podcast. Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble.

Episode 202 Professor Erin A. Cech, PhD. Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Professor Erin A. Cech, PhD. Erin A. Cech is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Associate Professor by courtesy in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Cech joined the University of Michigan in 2016. Before coming to UM, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University and was on faculty at Rice University. She earned her Ph.D. in Sociology in 2011 from the University of California, San Diego and undergraduate degrees in Electrical Engineering and Sociology from Montana State University. Cech's research examines cultural mechanisms of inequality reproduction--specifically, how inequality is reproduced through processes that are not overtly discriminatory or coercive, but rather those that are built into seemingly innocuous cultural beliefs and practices. She investigates this puzzle through three avenues of research. First, she uses quantitative and qualitative approaches to examine inequality in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professions--specifically, the recruitment and retention of women, LGBT, and under-represented racial/ethnic minority students and practitioners and the role of professional cultures in this inequality. Second, Cech examines how cultural definitions of “good work” and “good workers” can anchor inequality in the workforce. For example, she examines the role of the “passion principle” in the reproduction of occupational inequalities: how seemingly voluntary and self-expressive career decisions help reproduce processes like occupational sex segregation. Finally, she studies how cultural understandings of the extent and origin of inequality help to uphold unequal social structures. Cech's research is funded by multiple grants from the National Science Foundation. She is a member of the editorial board of the American Journal of Sociology and her research has been cited in The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Time, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Forbes, Chronicle of Higher Education and the news sections of Science and Nature. Cech's first book, The Trouble with Passion: How Searching for Fulfilment at Work Fosters Inequality (University of California Press) is out Nov 9th, but it is available for preorder at the link below, or through Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc. https://www.ucpress.edu/book/9780520303232/the-trouble-with-passion Professor Cech's website: https://erinacech.com has information about her other research and links to talks and presentations.
