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.
As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

RadioActive—Flip the What? Shaking up the classroom and how we think about learning

By Michael Matthiesen | September 15th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Traditional classroom environments have become incredibly normalized in how they are thought about and how they look all the way from kindergarten through our higher education – A new movement in Education challenges the “normal” way of doing/teaching/learning and is instead opting to “Flip the Classroom”. This week on RadioActive, we dug into the Flipped Classroom and the concept of Critical Pedagogy with Lindsay Buckingham-Rivard, a college instructor in Canada, who is pushing the boundaries of her classroom to try new and creative ways of engaging in learning with her students. She shared her perspectives, her pedagogy and examples from her classroom to highlight the different facets of this new Educational Movement

Counterpoint August 8th

This week was Alex’s last with us for the summer, and since everyone else was out of town, it was just the two of us in the studio. We started with David Beckham’s recent proposal to bring soccer to Miami and concluded that it would likely be a good fit for the city. Alex wanted listeners to text-in and suggest topics, so the next two — Israel/Palestine and Iraq– were listener-suggested. We started with Israel and possible band-aid fixes moving forward following operation Protective Edge and seemed to be in agreement that peace in the region was still quite a ways off. As for the ISIS encroachment in Iraq, we debated the role the U.S. should play and whether or not we retain our title of “police of the world.” We’ll miss him, but there’s always Winter Break and next summer!

Apologies in advance for the audio this week: due to technical bugs, the first minute or so was cut off. Catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.
