EP 426 Is Sugar the Next Tobacco?

If we’re honest, most of us love sweets.  And while talking about my love of chocolate on a radio program, my guest, a nutritionist, admonished me by saying ‘no you love sugar’.  Indeed, I do.  What surprised me is how much of it we consume in a day without knowing or thinking about it.  The … Continue reading EP 426 Is Sugar the Next Tobacco?

EP 425 Are We Ready for Future Twenty First Century MegaDisasters?

The twenty first century has been nothing, if not, eventful.  From man-made disasters like 9-11 to an economic collapse affecting the United States and Europe to a pandemic traveling the superhighway of viruses and touching nearly all quarters of the globe.  If you imagine that the world will now settle in to a more gentle, … Continue reading EP 425 Are We Ready for Future Twenty First Century MegaDisasters?

EP 424 Are We More Divided Now Than Ever Before?

American politics is loud, angry and bristling, so what else is new?  Well, the make-up of the two major parties, cut more neatly along ideological lines than any point in our past, seem unable to be the vehicle for the design and acceptance of consensus policies. Perhaps, that’s because it’s not so much policy disputes … Continue reading EP 424 Are We More Divided Now Than Ever Before?

EP 423 Are There Changes Ahead for the Supreme Court?

Given the partisan battles over recent Supreme Court nominations, and the Democrats frustration over Mitch McConnell’s fixation for affecting American politics through the federal courts for a generation to come, President Biden was asked during the campaign if he would expand the size of the Court.  It’s been done a number of times before in … Continue reading EP 423 Are There Changes Ahead for the Supreme Court?

EP 422 Can Americans Rebuild Trust in Each Other and Our Politics?

In the aftermath of the presidential election of 2020, we seem to be more polarized than ever before–fully retreated into political camps and tossing verbal grenades at the opposition.  Our guest, Kevin Vallier, a political philosopher from Bowling Green University argues in his new book, ‘Trust in a Polzarized Age’, that as polarization is rising, … Continue reading EP 422 Can Americans Rebuild Trust in Each Other and Our Politics?

EP 421 Days of Future Past

EP 420 America's Eviction Crisis and Tenants' Rights

  Matthew Desmond’s acclaimed book, ‘Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City’ drew attention to the eviction crisis in America.  Estimates suggest upwards of 900,000 renters were being evicted every year in America.  And that was before the pandemic forced a policy change putting a moratorium on evictions.  Without it, those numbers would have … Continue reading EP 420 America’s Eviction Crisis and Tenants’ Rights

EP 419 Activism Activated by Tragedy

The young people who survived the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in 2018 became daily visitors in our home through their articulate expression of grief and the millions they attracted to their cause, which involved the rallying cry of ‘stop killing kids’.  As a nation, we sensed this time would … Continue reading EP 419 Activism Activated by Tragedy

EP 418 Can America's Companies Come Out of the Pandemic Stronger for the Experience?

The answer to the question may be that if you do not come out stronger on the other side of the pandemic, it may be because you’ve succumbed to the many hazards within.  While Joseph Michelli, who has put on microscope on companies like Starbucks and Airbnb, was undertaking the sweet assignment of breaking down … Continue reading EP 418 Can America’s Companies Come Out of the Pandemic Stronger for the Experience?

EP 417 MS-13 America's Most Notorious Gang

We often hear about the notorious street gang MS-13.  Some politicians make it sound as if they are a danger in all corners of the country.  In many ways, they are concentrated in and around Los Angeles and local elements do, from time to time, have impact elsewhere in the country.  In fact, their most … Continue reading EP 417 MS-13 America’s Most Notorious Gang
