First Voices Radio with Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse spends the full hour with Stephany Seay, who has been working in service to the last wild buffalo for over 20 years. Based in Montana, she served as media coordinator for Buffalo Field Campaign, with whom she parted ways after 18 years over philosophical differences. She is a member of Deep Green Resistance and co-founder of Roam Free Nation. Stephany trusts that the buffalo have called us not just to help defend them, but to also help save us from ourselves.

Tidings from Hazel Kahan

Two members of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Staff Chaplain Chris Antal and Staff Psychologist Dr. Peter Yeomans, speak to us from Philadelphia, Pa. about their work on the pain of moral injury experienced by veterans returning from military deployment. From a foundation of academic research, they explain the distinction between moral injury and PTSD and how the community, including family, is integrated into their three-month program of group sessions leading to a moral injury community healing ceremony and community feedback.

Wednesday, December 13 at 6:30 AM (repeated at 8:00 PM) and archived.
