Greetings Earthlings. On the eve of May Day & in the wake of Earth Day, and here where we never tire of reminding you to listen to your Mother, we’ll check-in with Alison Bailey and Chris Cuomo, authors of The Feminist Philosophy Reader.This is our last show starting at 6pm on WXOJ-lp. In two weeks we'll come on at 6:30pm following Free Speech Radio news, sooooo, make note! As usual, we catch-up on the dark exploits of the patriarchal Bush regime and checkout the Enviro Show Quote of the Week, but first it’s time for..... Revenge of the Critters! Lily the fish poisons jailer!
Then it's on to The Enviro Show Quote of the Week: “You know, what’s happening in Latin America, any aggression or provocation by President Bush improves the image and the acceptance of candidates to the presidency.” - Bolivian President Evo Morales. Looks like the Empire has lost South America to the Commies! Too bad they're soooo busy spreading their mess eastward that they've overlooked their southern flank. ;)
Then it’s time for that dreadful sound again! Glen, what’s the countdown? When will we no longer read Hundreds of scientists at EPA report political interference? Nick Kristoff’s NY Times column Our Favorite Planet takes a piece out of the boy emperor and his (ahem) climate plan. ALSO, we replay a piece in the New York Times in which Terry Tempest Williams takes on Big Oil right in Darth Cheney’s backyard!
Our Enviro Show Blog Bonus: ACT NOW to stop bear poaching!
Then “Cottonwood”by Andrea Bunch, from her “Numinous” album takes us to our interview with Alison Bailey and Chris Cuomo. Maybe we all can visualize a virtual maypole and get some serious pagan rites going in the studio!
Onto the Bus Stop Billboard!
