Policy is not an exciting topic for most. It tends to be a conversation that only includes the privileged few: Politicians, lawmakers, and academics while leaving citizens, students, parents and educators left to deal with the results. Here at EduPoliCafe its your voice that matters most.
In this episode we will talk about why policy matters in education.
We will answer two key questions
What is Educational Policy? Why citizens like you should care about it?

This episode we are joined by noted sociologist and adult industry expert, Dr Chauntelle Tibbals to discuss the Bromance.
Sociologist Chauntelle Tibbals, Ph.D. studies human interaction in and with society, making sense of the patterns and processes she sees occurring in social behavior. Dr. Chauntelle’s scholarly focus includes studies in gender, sexualities, work & organizations, media & new media, popular culture, and qualitative research methods. Her research over the past decade has centered on an extremely varied and volatile topic: the socio-cultural significance of adult content and adult content production. Through understanding both the scholarly/theoretical and real-world sides of the adult entertainment business, her work sheds a fresh critical light on a very influential and highly stigmatized component of our contemporary culture. Dr. Tibbals’ research has been published in numerous scholarly journals including Sexualities, Gender Work & Organization, Journal of Contemporary Ethnography, and Stanford Law and Policy Review and is featured in W.W. Norton’s The Real World (4th ed, 2014). She is quoted and cited extensively by cultural and news media outlets including CNN, NBC News, Business Insider, ABC-Univision, BloombergTV, Huffington Post, Jezebel, Slate, Time Magazine, and KPCC (NPR).

Who are the Dallas 6?
At SCI Dallas (PA), after a series of abuses at the hands of corrections officials, some prisoners housed in the solitary confinement unit decided they had enough and decided to stage a protest in response to the inhumane conditions and mistreatment of prisoners. They decided it was time to do something about the inhumane conditions, immediately, before another prisoner dies or is brutally harmed. Each prisoner involved in the protest is now collectively referred to as the Dallas 6. They are Andre Jacobs, Anthony Locke, Anthony Kelly, Carrington Keys, Duane Peters and Derrick Stanley.
On April 28th 2010, prisoner Isaac Sanchez was subjected to a planned attack by the Restrictive Housing Unit (RHU) staff, forcibly removed from his cell and brutally beaten by officers in riot gear. Sanchez was subject to this attack as a result of speaking out against the abuse at Dallas prison on behalf of his fellow comrades. After being told they were next, Dallas 6 barricaded themselves in for protection and covered their cell windows. They asked for outside intervention but instead were beaten, electroshocked and peppersprayed. They filed complaints against the DOC and 3 months later, in retaliation, they were charged with riot.
As revealed in the Human Rights report, there has long been a policy within the prison walls of Dallas and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) to operate a corrupt administration under an iron wall of silence. The DOC, State Police, DA's office work in conjunction to railroad these men. On January 21, 2014 these men are facing trial for these bogus charges. There is a campaign underway to dismiss the charges and I am reaching out for awareness and support.
Charles Lenchner is a co-founder of Ready for Warren and a consultant for labor, political and nonprofit organizations, tweets as @clenchner. We will discuss the recent breaks in one of the most corrupt state houses in the land, Albany NY, where long-standing power magnate Sheldon Silver has been charged with bribery, following the investigations of the Moreland commission.Set up by the Governor Cuomo, the Commission's operations were halted by the governer when his staff was brought under scrutiny. NYT on Silver
SIlver is a Democrat who has policy preferences that line up well with most progressives. How does a progressive, or a liberal, line up when there is corruption in the ranks?
We'll also talk about Zephyr Teachout , Paul Newell (who primaried Silver last election) and Elizabeth Warren as possible remedies to this conundrum.
Join us Thursday Jan 29 7pm EST (Friday 9am Japanese Time) at Divination Radio with your hosts, Fiona Benjamin (Chinese-American Diviner) and Michael "Uncle Monkey" Lennon (Cartomancer).
The highly esteemed Angelo Nasios will be joining us this week to talk about his experiences as a younger tarot reader who has achieved so much in a few years. If you are a reader under 29 who has been struggling to make a name for yourself in the tarot world, this is a show that you do not want to miss.
Angelo Nasios is a rising voice within the tarot world. Angelo began reading tarot at thirteen years old. At twenty-three he was voted Tarosophist of the Year by popular vote with the Tarosophy Tarot Association.
Angelo is known for his popular YouTube channel in which he produces educational tarot videos. Angelo’s first book on tarot will be released by Schiifer publishing later in 2015. In 2014, Angelo was one of the feature presenters at the Dallas, Texas Tarosophy Conference (TarotCon).
Angelo’s love for the metaphysics has been a long affair. Since an early age Angelo was attracted to the unknown and other worldly. Being Greek, Angelo felt a strong connection to the ancient religion of his ancestors. Angelo follows a modern adaptation of Hellenistic polytheism and philosophy. The Greeks are well known for their Oracles, namely the Oracle of Delphi. Angelo found the tarot to be his form of carrying on the legacy of his culture's oracular tradition. Tarot is a skill that has come to him naturally.
Along with the tarot Angelo studies various subjects in the occult along with comparative religion, philosophy and psychology. Angelo is currently studying and working towards a B. A in Philosophy.
Angelo was born and raised in Long Island, New York. He currently resides there as well.
Raul Castro ups the ante for "normalized" relations with Cuba; Traditional pillars of Israel’s security have begun to erode; Obama White House absolves the Taliban of all charges of "terrorism"; Obama’s disastrous policy of repatriating enemy combatants dates back to his earliest days in office; and, time permitting, some down-home "cornpone politics".
