Host Rick Lasky continues his discussion on fire service history with Professor Glenn Corbett of John Jay College, where they delve into the history of the term "runs" in the fire service, leather fire helmets, the flamboyance of the early fire service, and other topics. (Replay of a show from December 2007)
Pride is defined as having a great opinion of oneself. Pride is also being happy with who you are. The former can make a person become insensitive to others and their feelings. The latter can be folks who are comfortable in their own skin. June is pride month in many places around the world. As people who transgender, gay, lesbian. bisexual, queer and other gender variant people celebrate their uniqueness, I am reminded that God created each of us in his own image. Each one of us has been created as we are. Each one of us has a story to tell. No one should ever be of the way God made them.

May is National Foster Care Month, a month set aside to acknowledge foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, policymakers, child welfare professionals, and other members of the community who help children and youth in foster care find permanent homes and connections. During National Foster Care Month, we renew our commitment to ensuring a bright future for the nearly 400,000 children and youth in foster care, and we celebrate all those who make a meaningful difference in their lives.
About Sue Badeau:
Love children (mom to 22, grand mom to 35, great grandmom to 7!) chocolate, camping, road-trips, writing, reading mysteries and more, standing up and speaking up for those without a voice. I have worked in children's services, policy and advocacy for 35 years. Married to my best friend, I divide my time between my home and kids in Philadelphia and traveling to speak and teach on the topics I am passionate about - healing and hope for children who have experienced trauma, foster care, adoption, permanent families for all kids, and more. My faith is my rock. After the 3rd of our 3 terminally ill children passed away in 2012 we decided the time had come to write our story and so we are proud and excited to share "Are We There Yet? The Ultimate Road Trip Adopting & Raising 22 Kids" with you all!

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month, held every April, is the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture. It’s official — NaPoWriMo 2015 has come and gone. The DC Poetry Project's 30 days of Poetry Challenge helped members and others jump-start the writing process, as well as provide resources and ideas to take forward into the rest of the year. We also hope that this challenge encouraged poets to work outside of their comfort zones and try new approaches to writing poetry.

When the Delta Foundation announced their headliner entertainer wass Iggy Azalea, many in the Western PA area were outraged and many LGBTQ persons of color felt especially alienated from Pittsburgh Pride. However, the selection of Azalea was just the last in a long list of incidents which leave many feeling as if the Delta Foundation doesn't care about the local LGBTQ community, but rather organizes Pride for white cis males alone. From the outrage came the organization of Roots Pride Pittsburgh.
My guest for this episode is Joy KMT, one of the co-organizers for the protest against Delta and the organizing effort to form Roots Pride Pittsburgh. We will talk about the Iggy controversy, and how a grassroots oriented Pride will serve Western PA's LGBTQAI com munity.
