Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon

Carey Gillam’s last book was Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science. It was an exposé of how Monsanto had captured federal agencies and academic scientists to promote Monsanto and suppress attempts to regulate it. Now, she’s back with a page-turning follow-up: The Monsanto Papers: Deadly Secrets, Corporate Corruption, and One Man’s Search for Justice. It’s about the groundbreaking case of school groundskeeper Lee Johnson—how he sued Monsanto and won.

Then, sea-level rise is happening — and it’s affecting way more than just coastal communities. That means millions are going to have to move to higher ground. We talk with John Englander about how fast sea level rise is happening — and what communities can do about it. His book is Moving To Higher Ground.

First Voices Radio with Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Tiokasin Ghosthorse’s guests this week on First Voices Indigenous Radio: Charmaine White Face, is Oglala Tituwan Oceti Sakowin. We’ll discuss her column, “Fighting for Religious Freedom,” which was published in Native Sun News Today in Rapid City, South Dakota. “Only 43 years ago, in 1978, the American Indian Religious Freedom Act was passed in the United States Congress. That’s not that long ago,” writes Charmaine. “The fact that such a bill had to be written in the first place… exposed the hypocrisy of the United States. The establishment of the United States and the U.S. Constitution were based on Religious Freedom, as long as it was Christianity. That is not Freedom.”

Then Hildá Länsman (Sámi) and Erkki Feodoroff (Sámi) from the band Gàjanas, hailing from Inari-Utsjoki in Finland’s far north. Echoes of Sámi tradition and its strong nature connection infuse their music.

Tidings from Hazel Kahan

In this long-ago personal reflection on the anxieties that surround my passport while traveling, I trace the feelings, that continue as strong as ever, to my WWII refugee parents and wonder if their legacy has been passed on to my children as I ask global friends whether this sounds familiar to them.
