Jobs with Justice

It’s an icy morning here in Western Mass – roads are slick, and cars are sliding all over the place, spinning out, careening into each other, and – in some cases – unable to make it uphill. Which bears a striking similarity to the trainwreck that was last night’s Oscar broadcast. Jaz fills Bill in on what he missed.

We also talk to Jon Weissman of Western Mass Jobs with Justice about why unions matter, even if you’re not in one.

A Really Full Show…

There’s so much show, and so little time (and room!) to fit it all in!

First we get an update from Bill Scher about what’s happening in Wisconsin.

Then we get a visit from Bob Cilman, Diane Porcella, Ed Sullivan, and Ed’s alter ego Tom Mahnken to talk about the last of the Four Sundays in February, the 20th anniversary of The Really Big Show happening this Sunday.

Finally, we talk to Andrea Miller, executive director of NARAL Massachusetts, about the systematic attack on women’s health programs and reproductive rights, and how you can help.

Quiet Riot

We’ve heard about the uprisings in Egypt, Libya, Iran…even Wisconsin. But there is one place where U.S. citizens are being attacked by police for protesting peacefully since December, and there has been almost no news coverage. Natalia Muñoz of La Prensa MA talks to us about what’s happening.

Also, Pam and Rachel Hannah are back with another performance of The Vagina Monologues. With them is artist Denise Beaudet, whose project “Roots to Resistance” is the beneficiary of this year’s performance.

Balancing act

The number of children diagnosed with autism, ADD, and ADHD has been rising steadily over several decades. Doctors Robert Melillo and Meg Hudson of the Brain Balance Center have seen great success from their methods of treating these children – without the use of drugs.
