    We're Turning into God's What?

    in Technology

    Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon pose the question: rather than asking what it means to become gods, maybe we should focus on a more basic question. How do we become (fully) human?

    The King Me Show: The Mis-Psychology of Black People

    in Radio

    The King Me Show: The Mis-Psychology of Black People with special guest Young Pharoah.

    One of the main tasks of Black consciousness is to affirm the beauty of our Blackness, to see beauty in Black skin, and thick lips and broad nostrils and kinky hair; to rid our vocabulary of ‘good hair’ and ‘high yeller’ and our medicine cabinets of bleaching creams. To de-niggerize ourselves is the key task of Black consciousness.” –John O. Killens (1966). Why are many of today’s Black psychologists, sociologists, historians, ministers, politicians, community activists, etc., speaking and writing about these same crazy issues facing African-Americans across the nation, such as self-hatred, internalized inferiority, White supremacy (racism), mentacide, the Willie Lynch syndrome and the post-traumatic slavery syndrome?  Why is it that 50 plus years after the experimental research of Dr.’s Kenneth and Mamie Clark and their famous Black doll- White doll studies with Black children, their response still yields the same negative results in 2007?  That being that Black children in New York City still choose or prefer the White doll over the Black one as being smarter, prettier, and more desirable.

    FRESH 2016

    in Current Events

    Our guests morning are Peggy Sivert Zask, a local artist who works mainly in sculpture, and Mario Johnson of Grandma’s House,  and they’re here to discuss FRESH 2016.

    Peggy is the director of the non-profit art organization, South Bay Contemporary, located at the corner of 4 Street and Mesa in the San Pedro Arts District - the space is called the LOFT Gallery and Studios.  he organization, 10 years running, recently went non-profit and moved into the Loft in 2015.  The Mission:  to bridge contemporary Art with Science, Humanities and Issues of our culture. They have had shows dealing with Mental Health, Native American Activism and Transforming Feminisms among many others and are developing educational programs for children, artists and art students, hosting exhibitions, experimental projects and events.

    In 1879 Grandma Cora Johnson devised a delicious barbeque for the first Juneteenth celebration held in Arlington, Texas. Her recipe became a family tradition and a well-guarded secret. Today, her grandson, Mario Johnson, uses the same original spices to create his masterpiece barbeque for patrons of Grandma's House. Grandma Minerva added her special flare to the menu by teaching Mario how to make delicious dishes with a Louisiana Cajun flare. That's how Grandma's House was born.

    This morning, Peggy is going to bring us up to date on South Bay Contemporary and fill us in on what attendees can expect at FRESH 2016 and Mario is going to tell us what he’s cooking up in the kitchen for the event.

    Switched On - John Elder Robison

    in Parents

    Host - Marianne Russo

    Imagine spending the first forty years of your life in darkness, blind to the emotions and social signals of other people. Then imagine that someone suddenly switches the lights on.
    It has long been assumed that people living with autism are born with the diminished ability to read the emotions of others, even as they feel emotion deeply. But what if we’ve been wrong all this time? What if that “missing” emotional insight was there all along, locked away and inaccessible in the mind?
     In 2007 John Elder Robison wrote the international bestseller Look Me in the Eye, a memoir about growing up with Asperger’s syndrome. Amid the blaze of publicity that followed, he received a unique invitation: Would John like to take part in a study led by one of the world’s foremost neuroscientists, who would use an experimental new brain therapy known as TMS, or transcranial magnetic stimulation, in an effort to understand and then address the issues at the heart of autism? Switched On is the extraordinary story of what happened next.
     Having spent forty years as a social outcast, misreading others’ emotions or missing them completely, John is suddenly able to sense a powerful range of feelings in other people. However, this newfound insight brings unforeseen problems and serious questions. As the emotional ground shifts beneath his feet, John struggles with the very real possibility that choosing to diminish his disability might also mean sacrificing his unique gifts and even some of his closest relationships. Switched On is a real-life Flowers for Algernon, a fascinating and intimate window into what it means to be neurologically different, and what happens when the world as you know it is upended overnight.
