632: American Rehab: Shadow Workforce, 8/8/2020

From Reveal | Part of the Reveal Weekly series | 58:59


Reveal’s American Rehab series investigates drug rehab facilities that send people to work but don’t pay them. In this final chapter, we answer two of the biggest remaining questions.

Since beginning this series, listeners have asked if rehabs are allowed to do this. Can they make participants work without pay as long as they’re providing housing and treatment? Does the work pay for the therapy? 

This question was raised by another cultish organization that recruited dropouts from the hippie movement and had them sew bedazzled designer jean jackets. The clothes became a Hollywood fashion trend, and the unpaid labor propelled a case all the way to the Supreme Court. 

There’s one other question that has driven our reporting from the beginning. How big is this? How many work-based rehabs operate across the country? The federal government doesn’t track them, and no one knew how many were out there. So reporter Shoshona Walter spent a year counting them herself, and she learned that they’re all around us.

Finally, the coronavirus pandemic has made the opioid epidemic even more deadly. As one crisis slams into another, we look at how work-based rehabs are turning participants into unpaid essential workers.

Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio (Series)

Produced by Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio

Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Radio transforms how we think about food and cooking. From street food in Thailand to a bakery in a Syrian refugee camp to how one scientist uses state of the art pollen analysis to track the origins of honey (and also to solve cold murder cases), Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Radio goes anywhere and everywhere to ask questions and get answers about cooking, food, culture, wine, farming, restaurants, literature, and the lives and cultures of the people who grow, produce, and create the food we eat. With a four-star cast of contributors including Sara Moulton (long-time public television host and cookbook author), Adam Gopnik (contributing writer for The New Yorker), Stephen Meuse (wine writer and expert), Dan Pashman (host of The Sporkful podcast) and host Christopher Kimball (founder of Cook’s Magazine, long-time public TV and Radio host, and founder of Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street).

Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Radio is distributed by PRX and recorded in the studios of WGBH.

The European Union had hoped that most borders in Europe would be lifted for the summer holiday season for visitors from countries with low coronavirus infection rates. But the rising number of cases around the world has thrown all plans into disarray. One country that's causing many raised eyebrows is Ireland. Along with Croatia it's the only EU country allowing in American tourists. Our correspondent Teri Schultz took a trip there herself to see how that's working out.

OHR130: OHR Presents: Joe Purdy & Friends, 8/17/2020

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59

Joe_purdy_prx_small Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

Renowned Arkansan Americana and true folk singer-songwriter and film actor Joe Purdy recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Joe Purdy is joined in this performance by duos the Honey Dewdrops and also Smokey & the Mirror.  Also, interviews with Joe.

“From his home state of Arkansas to his home in Los Angeles, Joe Purdy has recorded a baker’s dozen worth of albums. His songs have turned up on numerous TV shows and film soundtracks. Most notably, however, in recent years the singer, songwriter and self-described “hillbilly” has come to see the world and his role in it somewhat differently, charting this direction on his latest album, "Who Will Be Next?” Here he firmly plants his feet deep in the tradition of folk artists such as Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs, applying his unique skills as writer and vocalist as a passionate observer and participant of our times.” - http://www.joepurdy.com

Joe is joined onstage by two different husband and wife Americana and true folk duos The Honey Dewdrops and Smokey & the Mirror.  “Based out of Baltimore, MD, the Honey Dewdrops continue a long line of husband and wife duos making beautiful music together.  Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish now reside in Baltimore, but have strong connecting roots to the music in their home state of Virginia.”

“Smokey & The Mirror is husband and wife duo Bryan and Bernice Hembree.  Based out of Fayetteville, Arkansas, the Smokey & The Mirror have toured nationally/internationally over the past decade.  The band has supported tours for Old Crow Medicine Show, The Wood Brothers, I’m With Her, Elephant Revival, John Fullbright, and many of their musical heroes.” - http://www.smokeyandthemirror.com 

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers a 1978 archival recording of Ozark original Sam Younger and himself performing the song “Kicking Mule,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

In his segment “Back in the Hills,” writer, professor, and historian Dr. Brooks Blevins investigates historic outlaws of the Ozarks.  Many famous outlaws including Bonnie & Clyde and Pretty Boy Floyd have hidden out in the Ozarks.  Brooks guides us through this cult of criminality, recounting details of the Ozark experiences of Bonnie & Clyde in part three of this series called “Public Enemy.”

From WETS | Part of the Your Weekly Constitutional (Subscribable) series | 53:59

Ywc_logo_small_small Why did Lincoln save the Union? If the southern states wanted to secede, why didn’t Lincoln simply let them go? One could argue that they were making the same democratic decision that the British American colonies had made in 1776. But Lincoln thought differently, and he was passionate in his belief. Professor Charles Hubbard, the Director of Lincoln Memorial University’s Abraham Lincoln Institute for the Study of Leadership and Public Policy, tells the tale.
