Sea Change Radio

Wednesday May 20 3:30 PM - The Past and Future of Hitchhiking "Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?" Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" perfectly captured the essence of the American fascination with the automobile. But that love affair has been dysfunctional, at least as far as the environment goes. This week on Sea Change Radio, we hear from Ginger Strand, a non-fiction writer who has written extensively on the American interstate. Strand and host Alex Wise discuss the history of American roads over the past five decades, efforts to protect wildlife in the face of road encroachment, and the evolution of hitch-hiking as the rideshare movement continues to blossom. Then, we revisit our conversation with Paul Minett, the founder of the Ridesharing Institute in Auckland, NZ and Mark Svenvold, a journalist who's profiled Minett s work.

07-09: Fair Food: Ending Slavery in the Field Would you believe, here at the beginning of the 21st century, that every order of fast-food served with a slice of tomato is part of a system of slavery and labor abuse that exists right here in the United States? The intense demand for cheap food from the largest corporate buyers drives farm workers into the ground. The courageous labor organizer Lucas Benitez calls for reform at all levels of the food supply chain–from growers and buyers to fast-food corporations and organic grocery chains. And he includes everyone who eats, because we have the market power to demand better treatment of those who harvest

When we remember exposes of government surveillance over the last fifty years, we might recall Ramparts magazine's 1967 revelations that the CIA was violating its charter by spying within the United States. In more recent years we have releases of a huge number of official documents by Edward Snowden, as reported by Glenn Greenwald in The Guardian. And the earlier tranches by Chelsea Manning that WikiLeaks posted on the Internet let the entire world know what governments and their corporate partners have really been up to. In 2015, eight hundred years after the signing of the Magna Carta in England, prohibiting arbitrary power over people, is it fair to ask: Are we post-Magna Carta? In the United States, has the public and private sector created a post-constitutional system? What are the effects on free thought and the exchange of ideas? Robert Scheer is the former editor of Ramparts magazine,. A veteran investigative journalist, he is the editor-in-chief at He is author of They Know Everything About You: How Data-Collecting Corporations and Snooping Government Agencies are Destroying Democracy.

    Solar Workers Rally for Net Metering

    Solar workers are calling on the California Public Utilities Commission to continue supporting the fast-growing solar rooftop market in California, by preserving a program that lets solar customers’ electric meters run backwards when they produce more energy than they use. It’s a program called net metering, and the advocates are pushing back against utility industry proposals to end the program. Christopher Martinez reports from San Francisco.

    Bay Bridge Broken Bolt Raises New Questions

    Troubles on the new bay bridge eastern span continue, with new revelations that a steel rod anchoring the bridge tower to its foundation has fractured. Workers have removed the broken rod, which they will send to a lab for further testing. Bridge officials say the problem poses no safety risk, but it raises new questions about what caused this latest problem, and who will be liable for repair costs.

    Governor Brown Joins Leaders on Climate Change Agreement

    Governor Jerry Brown has joined with leaders from 11 other states and provinces in North America and Europe to form a partnership to fight climate change.
