    Graphic Policy Radio with Guest Spencer Ackerman

    in Pop Culture

    Graphic Policy is back with a brand new episode with special guest, and award winning journalist Spencer Ackerman.


    Comics have often featured torture as a method for the heroes to extract information or get them to their goal. We most recently saw this in Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil, where torture is a key point in advancing the hero's plot. We'll discuss torture in comics, and its place in the modern stories and the world.


    Spencer Ackerman is the U.S. national security editor of the Guardian, where he was part of the team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism for the NSA surveillance revelations provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. A former senior writer for Wired, Ackerman won the 2012 National Magazine Award for Digital Reporting for his series about Islamophobia in FBI counterterrorism training. Having reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay and numerous ships, bases and a submarine, Ackerman in 2015 exposed a secretive incommunicado police detention center in Chicago called Homan Square. A Brooklyn NY native, his mother taught him to read with Bill Mantlo's Incredible Hulk run.

    Graphic Policy Radio talks Age of Ultron with Guest Sarah Jaffe

    in Pop Culture

    This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, and we're going to the movies again. Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron has already proven itself to be one of the biggest films of the year. The film has already earned $1.2 billion globally. But popularity doesn't necessarily mean the film has been universally praised. The movie has come under fire for its portrayal of women, the absence of women in tie-in products, and for other issues with the story itself. Joining us for the conversation is Sarah Jaffe.


    Sarah Jaffe is a reporting fellow at the Nation Institute and a giant nerd who once upon a time wrote about comics more than she wrote about politics, believe it or not, and she has lots of feelings about superhero movies AND their politics. Follow her on Twitter https://twitter.com/sarahljaffe


    So listen in, and join us in the conversation. Call in with your thoughts, or Tweet them to us @graphicpolicy.

    Don't Forget Politics in Your Muni Broadband Marketing Plan.

    in Internet

    Developing relationships with elected officials and city government staff is critical to any muni network marketing plan, both locally and at the state level. For many communities, public networks are bipartisan efforts. At the state level, however, getting both sides of the aisle to come together behind these networks produces mixed results.


    The city of Sandy Oregon has a very stellar relationship between City staff, elected officials and constituents. City IT Director Joe Knapp and Sandy Council President Jeremy Peitzold tell us what works for them while offering other communities some perspectives to consider.



    how do city staff and city council form consensus defining the goals, getting funding and planning marketing;
    everybody wants the network built in their area first, and but political tensions can build because somebody has to be last;
    what do you do when one or two opponents of the network are one city council;
    is public networks’ role in economic development the key to legislative good will.

    The DETROIT-IFICATION OF RURAL AMERICA

    in Politics Conservative

    Under Obama, rural poverty has slipped off the national agenda as presidential candidates, pundits, and the press focus on the needs of big cities – the very places making the countryside poor. 


     


    The fate of upstate New York is a small scene in a larger story enveloping rural areas across the United States. As the balance of population shifts to cities, urban elites are increasingly favoring laws and regulations that benefit urban voters over rural ones. The result is the "Detroit-ification" of sparsely populated areas so that the countryside increasingly resembles the inner city. This trend fuels the intense populism and angry politics that has shattered the post-WWII consensus and divided the nation.
