Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller (Series)

Produced by KALW

Most recent piece in this series:

90: "I am powerful by just living" - Sarah McBride, author of "Tomorrow Will Be Different"

From KALW | Part of the Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller series | 54:00

Screen_shot_2018-04-19_at_12 Sarah McBride made history in 2016 as the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention. As of 2018, more than half of LGBTQ people live in states that don’t protect them from discrimination or are even actively hostile towards them. In the most challenging moments--the 2016 election results, everyday sexism and misogyny and the death of her young husband--even then she fights to update our laws to protect and include LGBTQ people. Her vision and focus on achieving a more equal world, where everyone is seen and accepted for who they are, is so clear that it almost seems simple. So why does it have to be so hard to get to that point? This week on Inflection Point, host Lauren Schiller speaks with Sarah McBride, LGBTQ activist and author of the new book, “Tomorrow Will Be Different”.

The Song of Songs

From WQXR | 58:29

"I am sick with love." These five words say so much. Love is like a sickness and it affects the entire human race.

Playing
The Song of Songs
From
WQXR

Wqxr_logo_nofreq_small

This line comes from the Hebrew Bible as part of a collection of poems known as "the Song of Songs." And they are words that still speak to us today. The Song of Songs confounds and tantalizes the faithful. It seduces composers, inspiring works by Monteverdi, Bach and contemporary composer Nico Muhly. In fact, there are dozens of musical settings, each dancing between earthly pleasures and heavenly aspirations.

Stage and screen star Jessica Hecht ("Fiddler on the Roof," "Breaking Bad," Dan in Real Life," "Sideways") hosts "The Bible’s Great Romance: The Song of Songs," a one-hour special of this sensuous verse married with choral music.

The War On Normal People

From Guy Rathbun | Part of the IdeaSphere: A Platform for Today's Voices series | 29:00

Andrew_yang_small Those in favor of automation say it’s a solution to the labor shortage. Those who oppose it say it will displace middle class jobs. Science professor Stephen Hawking joins the latter group.

Hawking says that artificial intelligence and increasing automation is going to decimate middle class jobs, worsening inequality and risking significant political upheaval.

Yet, there is another possibility. Although entrepreneur and founder of Venture for American, Andrew Yang, agrees with Hawking’s assessment the future he imagines is very different.

Yang’s book is The War on Normal People: The Truth About America’s Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income is Our Future.

The idea of a basic income is not new. It’s been bandied about for several decades. But, Yang argues that it’s an essential step toward a new, more durable kind of economy, one he calls “human capitalism.”

Oh, did I mention, he’s a Democratic candidate for president in 2020.
