Walter Newkirk, author, joins the show tonight to talk about his books!
memoraBEALEia : A Private Scrapbook about Edie Beale of Grey Gardens celebrates and pays tribute to Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale. Miss Beale was the first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and is best known for her participation in the famous documentary Grey Gardens (1976). In the 1970s, Edie Beale and her mother Edith Bouvier Beale -- the respective cousin and aunt of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis - former society ladies - were living in a cat-infested, filthy, crumbling estate called Grey Gardens in East Hampton. The interview for the Rutgers newspaper was conducted shortly after the release of the film. Newkirk and Beale kept in touch for several years, by phone and by mail. After the estate was sold and her mother died, Beale moved to New York ( from 1980-1983) and the author escorted her to luncheons, parties and special events. She later moved to Florida, and died in January 2002. memoraBEALEia contains never-before-seen photographs of Edie Beale and Grey Gardens, the Rutgers Targum interview along with a few other obscure newspaper clippings, reproductions of letters written by Little Edie (along with cards she created), and art inspired by Grey Gardens.

Humpday just got more interesting on Pagans Tonight!
Steve and Alex are joined by Who Forted? Greg Newkirk in discussing several elements of the paranormal.
"Greg is the co-creator and contributing editor for Who Forted?, the online paranormal magazine. When he's not occupied by writing about the wide world of the weird, he's busy directing and editing films like The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching or perusing used bookstores for antique occult manuscripts. He's currently knee-deep in production on his new project: an original documentary web series Planet Weird which aims to explore the world of the unexplained by actually engaging it. He currently lives in Toronto.
Tonight Lady T welcomes Anne Newkirk Niven, publisher of Witches & Pagans, Sage Woman & Crone Magazines.
Like most Pagans, Anne believes that there really never was a time when she *wasn’t* Pagan; it’s just that she didn’t have a name for it. As a child she had a Mystical Heart, connected to the Earth and eventually, as a young adult, discovered the Goddess through reading two books: The Mists of Avalon (which was a gateway for many in her generation) and Starhawk’s original version of The Spiral Dance.
While trying to make a living in 1988, Anne was living in Point Arena, California, a tiny coastal community in the middle of nowhere; having given up pursuing a career in the Christian ministry (for both personal and thealogical reasons) she and her husband were operating a small print shop when she saw a copy of SageWoman and called the publisher, Lunaea Weatherstone, and asked to have the job of printing the magazine. Lunea's printer at the time had done a bad job for her sometimes printing pages upside down and backwards, so Anne & her husband got the job. After a long series of events, SageWoman came to be in Anne's hands,she ended up as Publisher, and has been doing this work ever since!

Call in to learn how Black Lives have been "caged" for entertainment since the turn of the century. Bars by any name...are a prison...and a cage. Join host Dr. Sonia Banks, Chair, Manhattan Chapter, NCBW for our Leadersatplay Education Series. Meet an award-winning journalist, Pamela Newkirk, as she reveals a little-known and shameful episode in American history, when an African man was used as a human zoo exhibit—a shocking story of racial prejudice, science, and tragedy in the early years of the twentieth century in the tradition of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Devil in the White City, and Medical Apartheid. In 1904, Ota Benga, a young Congolese “pygmy”—a person of petite stature—arrived from central Africa and was featured in an anthropology exhibit at the St. Louis World’s Fair. Two years later, the New York Zoological Gardens displayed him in its Monkey House, caging the slight 103-pound, 4-foot 11-inch tall man with an orangutan.
Jim and Jennifer are honored to welcome Ingrid E. Newkirk to the show. Newkirk is the president and founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the author of One Can Make a Difference, Let's Have a Dog Party!, 50 Awesome Ways Kids Can Help Animals, Making Kind Choices, The PETA Celebrity Cookbook, 250 Things You Can Do to Make Your Cat Adore You, Free the Animals, and The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights.
Newkirk, a former Washingtonian of the Year, has been featured for her work for animals in The New Yorker, Time magazine, People magazine, Forbes, the Financial Times, and numerous other publications. She has appeared on television shows all over the world, including Australia's 60 Minutes. She is the subject of a BBC special and the HBO documentary I Am an Animal.
