The Voting Fraud Myth and Poetry from Within

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week 'Generation whY' will start with a serious discussion about voter fraud. Is it a real issue? Are new voting restrictions actually hurting more than helping our country? We bring these questions  and more up to Matt Segal. On the second half of the show we are joined in studio by Fairfield poets Monserrat Iñiguez and Taylor Irezumi of Soapbox Speakeasy.

OURTIME.org co-founder Matt Segal will return to discuss the voter fraud and voter suppression. Find out more about their efforts here.

As president and co-founder of OurTime.org, Matthew leads campaigns to expand job opportunities, voting rights, and civic education among his generation while devising strategic partnerships with media brands to enhance the voice of his peers. Matthew is also a regular TV commentator, contributing most frequently to MSNBC, and has appeared on The TODAY Show, Real Time with Bill Maher, CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, and the CBS Evening News among several other cable and broadcast news programs.

The Soapbox Speakeasy presents Fairfield poets a venue where they spit, flow and shock. Show takes place every Saturday after ArtWalk at the Urban Village Collective. The Soapbox Speakeasy is headlined by a different language artist each month- the headliner selects the theme, which sets the writing challenge, and the ensuing lineup is filled by poets who craft work to speak on the topic. The goal of the event is to inspire people to write- including audience members. It promotes a community of writers who gather to teach, write, share, rehearse, play and support each other, as well as develop material for performance and publishing. The Soapbox Speakeasy is presented by The Urban Village Collective, a space for craftspeople, artisans, and independent business owners to create and developtheir products in a friendly cooperative setting.

Pete Seeger | KRUU 2-Hour Special Tribute 10am & 8pm

Pete Seeger & Woody Guthrie

KRUU-FM brings you a 2-hour tribute on the great Pete Seeger, who passed away last night. In 2010, Mr. Seeger did a wonderful interview with KRUU's Mike Ragogna. At the end of that interview, he left us with this amazing and timeless advice:

"Sing for as many different kinds of people you can--old folks, middle aged folks, kids, infants. And sing for people you disagree with, too. Learning how to communicate with people we disagree with is something the whole world has to learn."

KRUU FM's Andrew Tint sits down with Jonathan Narcisse (D), Democratic nominee for Governor of Iowa. Mr. Narcisse made his announcement to enter the race in Cedar Rapids, and is now touring the state, which included a stop at KRUU FM. 

Listen to Mr. Narcisse talk about the problems inflicting Iowa today - including the need for education reform, new tax laws, and fighting poverty. 

Before putting his hat in the political ring, Mr. Narcisse served on the Des Moines School Board.

Talia & Tama, Fairfield Farming & beyond...

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Andrew Tint talks with two Fairfield natives, Talia Winningham and Tama Eagleson, about growing up in Fairfield, their farming internships, and their social justice work.

Talia Winningham spent the last three months interning for the Expedition Education Institute in Maine, which runs travel semester programs for college students based out of a retrofitted school bus. The programs incorporate a focus on the environment and sustainability as well as service projects and backcountry trips. While they didn't run a full semester while I was interning for them, they did run a 10-day program focused on climate change issues that I was the food-coordinator for. Before that internship Talia spent the summer working at an amazing summer camp called Tamarack Farm, which is a 7-week for camp for teenagers where they learn to operate a small farm, live in community and make consensus decisions, build things, cook.

Also joining Generation whY is Tama Eagleson. Tama moved to Olympia, Washington to be a paraeducator. Tama's program selects high school students to work on a local farm for a semester, doing everything from caretaking to learning about the environment. This is an interview you shouldn't miss, unless you're out farming.
