We spoke with acclaimed author, activist, artist, and movement elder Aurora Levins Morales about her new podcast, Letters From Earth. We talked about her ongoing love affair with radio – from the feminist radio shows she produced in the 1970s, to her time with the Third World News Bureau and her contributions to Flashpoints on Pacifica. We ended with a preview of the show, a piece entitled Mothers.
On this episode, we focused on the final days of the Canadian Jewish Congress. We spoke with Bernie Farber (former CEO of the CJC) & Dan Freeman-Maloy (Jewish academic, writer, and activist) about the CJC’s history, how the Jewish Federations replaced it with CIJA (an Israel advocacy group), and what this means for our present moment.
