    Will Arkansas anti-gay law legalize discrimination for all unprotected classes?

    in LGBT

    Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer).  While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.


    In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents.  Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.


    We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.  


    Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.


    Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative.  The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage.  A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.

    Studio SPJ with Jennifer Livingston

    in Podcasting

    Wisconsin television anchor/reporter Jennifer Livingston made headlines of her own in October went she responded on air to a viewer who criticized her as being overweight.   The incident sparked a national discussion about obesity, self-esteem and bullying.   It also put Livingston in the unusual position of being part of the news rather than the person reporting it.    Now that a few months have passed, Livington has agreed to be our guest on Studio SPJ.   The half-hour conversation, hosted by the Milwaukee chapter of SPJ, will air live on Jan. 3 at 1 p.m. Eastern.   A graduate of Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, Livingston started in 1997 as a general assignment reporter for WKBT in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.   The viewer sent an email to Livingston telling her to "reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle."   Livingston responded with a 4-minute on-air segment in which she acknowledged being  overweight but said the viewer's words were cruel.   She went on to say: "To all the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, your sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face, listen to me right now: do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies."   A YouTube clip of Livingston's remarks has drawn more than 10.5 million views. The incident also lead to Livingston making an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
