Rachel Schragis of People’s Climate March

Schragis.jpg








On June 27 on Sex and Politics, Dan Kinch interviewed Rachel Schragis, an artist and activist. She is an Arts Coordinator for the People’s Climate March, scheduled for this coming September. The United Nations has called a special summit to address climate change/climate disruption. The summit will bring world leaders together to hammer out some serious attempts to deal with climate change internationally. While the leaders meet, activists will march. We talked about the issues of climate change and and why activists are marching.

Rachel’s interview with us came one week after our radio conversation with Guy McPherson, which you can find here. As Guy McPherson has said, if you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, then do. This is not a time to give into despair, tempting though it may be.

Loretta Chin reports and music from Ewald

lorettachin.jpgewalt2.jpg

On Friday June 13, Phil Rosenberg spoke with Loretta Chin, an S&P alumnus now working as a reporter for the Canarsie Courier. She has been writing about the decline of the number of children eligible for entry to K-3 gifted and talented programs in NYC public schools--and the decline of those programs in number. We also listened to the music of EWALD and Dan Kinch talked to founder Jason Ewald and his bandmates bassist Jim Saxa and keyboardist Kevin Bernstein. Since arriving in New York City in 2007, Jason has seen his creative growth blossom, fed by the hum of city life and the energy of its inhabitants. His music is inspired by the refined sounds of 70s pop, the greasy soul of Muscle Shoals, the explorations of jazz, and the insistent rhythms of funk and rock.
