    TUC Radio is produced by Maria Gilardin


    Maria Gilardin learned radio in the KPFA news department in 1980 and was one of the founders of the women's department. She co-wrote the GATT Guide for the Earth Summit in Rio, was founding producer of the national weekly public-affairs show Making Contact, and is a member of the International Forum on Globalization.

    About this series: "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States"


    About the author: Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz grew up in rural Oklahoma, the daughter of a tenant farmer and part-Indian mother. She holds a Ph.D. in history and is an activist in the international Indigenous movement for more than four decades.

    This first part of the program brings you Dunbar-Ortiz' description of North America before invasion, the emergence of the US concept of a chosen people, the development of the role of the US military as a force for genocide that seamlessly transitioned into the US foreign wars, the role of militias, a brief history of AIM, the American Indian Movement, and the consequences of the Gold Rush in California.


    During Q&A Dunbar-Ortiz was asked about an earlier book by her. The Great Sioux Nation, published in 1977, came out of the 1974 Wounded Knee trials where Dunbar-Ortiz was an expert witness.

    Dunbar-Ortiz is the author or editor of seven other books, including Roots of Resistance: A History of Land Tenure in New Mexico; The Great Sioux Nation; Red Dirt: Growing Up Okie, and Blood on the Border: Memoir of the Contra War. She lives in San Francisco.

    I recorded Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz on Dec. 4, 2014, at Green Apple, one of the last used bookstores in San Francisco. Her book had been published two months earlier.

    Let's Talk Too! Author Debbie McGowan

    I'm your host


    Author Sharnel


       Guest


    Author Debbie McGowan


    She is an author and publisher based in a semi-rural corner of Lancashire, England. She writes character-driven, realist fiction, celebrating life, love and relationships. A working class girl, she ‘ran away’ to London at 17, was homeless, unemployed and then homeless again, interspersed with animal rights activism (all legal, honest ;)) and volunteer work as a mental health advocate. At 25, she went back to college to study social science— tough with two toddlers, but they had a ‘stay at home’ dad, so it worked itself out. These days, the toddlers are young women (much to their chagrin), and Debbie teaches undergraduate students, writes novels and runs an independent publishing company, occasionally grabbing an hour of sleep where she can!

    The State of Our Boys & Men - Have WE Progressed?

    in Self Help

    In September 2014, President Obama issued a challenge to cities, towns, counties and tribes across the country to become “MBK (My Brother's Keeper) Communities.” This challenge represents a call to action for all members of our communities, and mayors in particular, as they often sit at the intersection of many of the vital forces and structural components needed to enact sustainable change through policy, programs, and partnerships.


    The MBK Community Challenge encourages communities (cities, rural municipalities, and tribal nations) to implement a coherent cradle-to-college-and-career strategy for improving the life outcomes of all young people to ensure that they can reach their full potential, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or the circumstances into which they are born. Nearly 200 mayors, tribal leaders, and county executives across 43 states and the District of Columbia have accepted the MBK Community Challenge.


    The six goals of the Challenge were:



    Ensuring all children enter school cognitively, physically, socially and emotionally ready
    Ensuring all children read at grade level by 3rd grade
    Ensuring all youth graduate from high school
    Ensuring all youth complete post-secondary education or training
    Ensuring all youth out of school are employed
    Ensuring all youth remain safe from violent crime

    From children to the more mature audience member, Kacey’s performances are a hit because she tries to fashion her performance set list to best approach her audience. Whether it is a county fair or a private house concert, the audience finds themselves drawn into Kacey’s show and feels a real connection with her as a person and an artist. Kacey is putting herself out there working toward accomplishing her goals in making a big music dream a reality.

    EP47 - Duck Shooting and reloading with Mike Felton

    in Hobbies

    Recorded from a MaiMai somwhere in the king country Tune in to find out mikes thoughts on Duck Shooting and Reloading.


     


    Being born in Rural King Country,MIke grew up in the 70's around the Kuratau region.


    At a very young age he was introduced to the pursuits of Fishing and Hunting, both of which he is still mad keen on.


    Now in his early 40's (he says) he owns his own business and started Reloading as favours for mates, but as the word soon grew about the results, especially with 12g Steel ammo, He has seen a steady increase in reloading work and would love nothing more than to make it a full time profession.


    His wife says he is a perfectionist with all things related to Hunting, and to Mike thats how it should be. No half arsed antics can be tolerated when it comes to the round coming out the muzzle.


    His favourite Rifle is a Tikka .243 s/s supressed, even though he still takes  his Grand Fathers Marlin .308Win Lever action out for walks every now and then.His 12g is the Berretta A400 Xplore action. When using his own Steel loads the recoil is like shooting Trap ammo.

    John Marshall - Wide Open World

    in Books

    In 2010, John Marshall needed a change. He was feeling disconnected from his wife and his two teenage kids were lost in cyberspace. In an effort to pull his family back together, John proposed they take a six month trip around the world. Not the sightseeing-hotel-restaurant kind of trip, but a volunteer adventure, working with service organizations in all kinds of interesting projects.


    And so, they spent time at an animal sanctuary in the rainforest of Costa Rica, labored on organic farms in New Zealand, taught English in rural Thailand, fell in love with orphans in India, and worked alongside a Buddhist monk high in the Himalayas.


    John documents the highs and lows of this family vacation unlike any other in WIDE-OPEN WORLD (Ballantine Books; On Sale 2/10/15)


    John Marshall is a nine-time Emmy Award–winning writer, producer, and director. In addition to his work behind the camera, Marshall has been a familiar face on Maine television for more than ten years, writing and hosting numerous weekly TV shows. Wide-Open World is his first book.

    DSD22 Why does the South always come last in progress?

    in Lifestyle

    The south's history is full of event's where the powers that be are always on the wrong side of history. Slavery was abolished 20 years in the North before it took a war to stop it down south. Electricity most southern rural citizen got electricity years after everyone else did and it took FDR (a Northerner) to get that done. Civil Rights, the south fought tooth and nail and it took Federal troops again to get them to accept (on paper) the terms of equality. Today it is LGBT rights, Health care, Voters Rights (Still), True Free Enterpise, and the War on Drugs. We can't seem to get it? Today's show we will dig deep and ask the questions and get some answers. On the way DSD can.....
