This week, we started by following up on the Florida election situation on the heels of the third debate. We then talked about some lesser-known yet still very important measures on the ballot for Florida this year: medical marijuana and the decision for who gets to appoint judges to the State Supreme Court (Amendments two and three, respectively). We then moved into medicare and broader Florida politics. We ended by postulating about the 2014 election nationwide. As always, hit the jump after the break to catch the replay. Keep it locked.

This week, we were joined again by Joe Pettinelli who will be taking over for Jordan in the coming months. We started by talking about Fangate and then transitioned into Florida politics in general. After the break, we talked about the Ebola outbreak and what the U.S. is and should be doing to keep ourselves safe from the outbreak. We ended with a brief discussion on The Snappening. As always, hit the link after the break for a replay. Keep it locked.

For Veterans Day, we want to honor and thank all who serve and have served in the United States Armed Forces. One of the many service members is Navy Lt. Louis Sanchez, a true hometown hero serving his country, he is a 1989 Miami Killian Senior High School graduate and for the past 5 years, has served as a clinical social worker in the Navy.

RadioActive – But ‘evidence based practice’ sounds so pretty! The ethical dilemmas and limitations of prevention science

By radioactive | October 7th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Joining us on air this past Sunday was Dr. Scot Evans, faculty member extraordinaire in the School of Education and Human Development. Dr. Evans shared with us his critique and thoughts on the limitations and ethical dilemmas of what we call ‘prevention science’: the application of science to preventing human suffering. As a critical researcher Dr. Evans helped clarify why (and when) it can in fact be harmful to apply ‘evidence-based programs’ that emerge from Prevention Science to communities that are not made to adapt to a communities needs and/or relevant to the local context or aimed at the root causes of the human suffering we are working to address.

Counterpoint October 3rd

This week, we were joined by a very special guest: Louis Chan, from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Louis spoke with us about the recent political unrest brewing in Hong Kong dubbed the “umbrella revolution” and we got the chance to ask him some questions to better understand what was happening. I had bumped in to Louis at an event the previous night on the topic of the umbrella revolution and he agreed to come on the show, so special thanks again to him for doing so on such short notice.

After that, we started with discussing the College Republicans’ “Say Yes to the Dress” parody commercial and kind of slid into abortion unprepared (we didn’t have Nicole to provide a female perspective).

Nevertheless I think it worked out well. As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked about Eric Holder’s resignation and then we wandered off topic quite a bit, touching on Ferguson, and even on poverty and the minimum wage. Then we touched on education reform to round out the show. That’s all I’ve got this week: it’s first-test/paper-of-the-semester week! As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked the obvious: Scotland’s vote. Admittedly, all of us on the show had little if any personal stake in the matter, but it was still fun to consider what could have been. Then we moved on to the Ray Rice scandal and other prominent football players’ recent dealings with the media and domestic abuse allegations. That’s all for the description!

RadioActive – Where did I leave that Critical consciousness…it has GOT to be around here somewhere

By radioactive | September 22nd, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Critical consciousness is someone’s ability and awareness to critique the social structures around them that oppress and lead to human suffering, while simultaneously having the awareness that we have the ability to change these oppressive structures. Our guest Susie Paterson and me, your host Natalie, took listeners through personal stories and trajectories into critical consciousness: Those moments in life that helped expose the world and its oppressive structures. Susie navigated listeners through a complex and abstract concept with great examples of how this plays out in real life, and left us all with the advice  - “go read everything”! Now that’s some advice I can get behind!

This week, due to some unfortunate turns of events, Jordan and Nicole were unable to make the show. So instead we had Counterpoint: Mike and Mike edition. We started by talking about the saddening news that Shalala was retiring from being the president of The U. We then talked about Iraq and ISIS (ISIL this week, subject to change). We then discussed Net Neutrality much to my pleasure due to a viewer request from last week (yay!). We then moved to talking about the Ray Rice situation and back to ISIS due to another viewer text-in. We finished with a talk about a documentary Mike Fuentes found out about a little while ago called “Fed Up” and back to ISIS in the context of global security from another viewer text.
