a double-interview on Common Threads, Sept 4, 2009: Jerry Paffendorf, the near-mythical tri-coastal (SF, NY, Detroit) futurist/entrepreneur, and the editor and creator of a new Apocalyptica zine in SF both come talk to Diamond Dave and Naomi Most for interviews. Naomi wants to know about the MakeLoveLand project to get people to invest $1 per inch in a million inches of detroit property (what kind of investment in that??) while Dave finds the common thread with Grace Lee Boggs, long-time organizer and protector of urban Detroit.

How Parasitic Capitalism Consumes, Confines and Controls. July 31, 2009. Featuring Daniel Coffeen, PhD.

Hijacking Charm School w/ Kiefer pt 1

YARR! Subversive Science takes over Charm School and delves into science news: Sweden puts "climate control" labels on food; MIT radio-tracking 3000 individual pieces of trash; evolutionary psychology falling out of favor; and some makedy-up news from the Onion that left many real-life researcher friends rolling in the aisles this week. Backing music from the Animatrix soundtrack, and of course tons of physics, health, memetics, and philosophy conversation. Because that's what you do when you hang out with Kiefer. Apologies for the low level on Kiefer's microphone - technical difficulties.

Part two of our hijacking of the normally scheduled Charm School broadcast on Pirate Cat Radio. In this part, intern Mark drops in on our philosphical science conversation... and certainly makes a sort of mark on the radio. What's it like to try to argue phenomenology with someone who conflates free will with anarchism? FIND OUT! (yeeeesh)

The Periodic Apocalypse: Occasional Lectures on the End of the World series kicks off on April 22, 2009, with a lively discussion featuring Dr. Kirsten Sanford (This Week in Science) and Brian Malow (the Science Comedian).

The H1N1 virus emerged from Mexico in late March, borne on the sneezes of swines, and made its way into the US in a matter of days. The media responded in their usual hysterical way, inciting fear and panic around the world.

Our program states facts about Swine Flu (H1N1), debunks the myths, and looks at the consequences of media misrepresentation and its effects in a society that is generally unable to differentiate between truth and fabrication.

We also get a little silly. smiley

This program was recorded live, with a live studio audience, at the Pirate Cat Radio Cafe in the Mission district of San Francisco at 21st and Florida, on April 22nd, 2009.
