August 30 Old Mole Variety Hour

program date: 
Mon, 08/30/2010

Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program looks at how medical care is improved when delivered by people who are cooperating rather than being managed from the top; whether charity keeps us from dealing with the real probems; the new Todd Solandz movie Life During Wartime; and music that keeps lost causes from being forgotten so that they may rise again and succeed.

Beyond Charity

program date: 
Mon, 08/30/2010

 Wealthy people often give large amounts to charity, and everyone is encouraged to contribute to charities.   But does charity, besides whatever good it does in the world, distract us from solving the real problems that charity so inadequately deals with?  Joe Clement draws on Slavoj Žižek and Oscar Wilde to illuminate these questions.  For an animated version of Žižek's remarks, go here.  For a fuller version, go here.  And to read Oscar Wilde's "Soul of Man Under Socialism," click here.

Short Description: 
Joe returns from vacation to join Abe in taking a snapshot of the body politic.

It's summer. It's hot, it's sticky, and an election looms in November. What can we expect? Nearly halfway through President Obama's first term, what is the state of the American zeitgeist? Has the president delivered on his promise of hope and change? Are the Teabaggers worth taking seriously (no, really ...)? Have we shrugged off the toxic malaise of the Bush Years? What can we expect on Election Day?

And perhaps most importantly, do Abe and Joe have anything worth saying?

Old Mole Variety Hour August 9th (incomplete)

program date: 
Mon, 08/09/2010

The theme of today's show - hosted by Bill Resnick (on the left) -  could aptly be called "South of the Border." Virtually all of the show turns its eyes to South American politics, but also the harsh realities of humanitarian aid.  It features South American rebel-music by Intli-illimani, which Bill discusses in the end. Below are links to the other portions of the show.

1. Jan Haaken and Fran Michel review Oliver Stone's new movie about the South American political landscape, "South of the Border."

2. Bill interviews Mark Weisbrot, co-author of South of the Border, about the rise and status of South American popular governments.
