James Moore's blog

Paula Poundstone

A salt of the earth comedienne and a soil microbioloigist walk into a bar. Wait, wait...  it's no joke.

3pm | I get to speak with two incredible women--one an Emmy award winning author, radio & television personality and highly decorated funny person, the uber intelligent, improvisationally unchallenged and wit smitten kitten Paula Poundstone.

Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me is now heard in 5 million homes across the country, including all of the major markets, internationally on NPR Worldwide, streaming on the Internet and via podcast.  In 2008 it received a Peabody Award for broadcasting excellence.  On the show Paula gets to match wits with some of the country’s leading pundits. Poundstone will be doing her comedy magic at The Englert in Iowa City Fri Apr 18th.

Elaine Ingham

3:30pm | One of my favorite people on earth, Dr. Elaine Ingham, an American soil biology researcher and founder of Soil Foodweb Inc will speak about her amazing work restoring the balance of our soil. A leader in soil microbiology and research of the soil food web, she is author of the USDA's Soil Biology Primer. In 2011, Ingham was named as The Rodale Institute's chief scientist. She teaches at MUM in the sustainable living department once a year.

At 2pm, James Moore speaks with Overland Sheepskin's Roger Leahy, Clyde Cleveland & Keith DeBoer about their reactions to the proposed grain elevator complex going up across from Overland. Here's a link to the interview. Mr. Leahy says Heartland Co-Op is planning to build a 220 foot tall cement super structure, according to feedback he received from a company executive.

"Inside the Headlines" with JP Sottile, the Newsvandal

Check out JP's revealing look in Consortium News:

CORPORATE INTERESTS BEHIND UKRAINE PUTSCH

Behind the U.S.-backed coup that ousted the democratically-elected president of Ukraine are the economic interests of giant corporations – from Cargill to Chevron – which see the country as a potential “gold mine” of profits from agricultural and energy exploitation, reports JP Sottile.

We'll be focussing on this topic in depth today as JP is getting a lot of interest on his perspective, including an invite to RT and other interviews. Crimea river, we're Putin on the ritz. For links to headlines discussed, click "Read more" below.

Questioning America's "Good" Wars

Pro War WIlliam KristolCOULD WE HAVE WON INDEPENDENCE WITHOUT GOING TO WAR WITH ENGLAND?

COULD WE HAVE ABOLISHED SLAVERY WITHOUT GOING TO WAR?

Anti War Howard ZinnI love Howard Zinn. He was a thinker, a questioner, an extraordinary historian, and a worldclass world peace activist. Today I'll play an incredible talk he gave in 2009 about America's "Holy Wars'--the good wars we never question in the sentimentalized, romanticized version of our history.

The next time some talking head pushes a war on you, like William Kristol, who cheered on the invasion of Iraq from his armchair, and is now bemoaning the fact the Americans appear to be war weary because of the debacle in Iraq and the endless miasma of Afghanistan, don't let the stirring patriotic pro-militaristic language fool ya. Think about the human cost. The human suffering.

The rich push war that the poor fight and die in. The rich make money and champion its glories. Challenge assumptions. Check your patriotic guns at the door. Don't buy chickenhawks hawking war with their tough guy blather. War should be a last resort. Never, ever a first retort. Next time some armchair quarterback or media former general says we HAVE to go to war, remember...

"In between war and passivity, there are a thousand possibilities." --Howard Zinn

Aretha Franklin's birthday is coming up March 25th and we're taking this opportunity to celebrate the heavenly gifted singer's Grammy decorated [18 Grammys!!] illustrative career.

It took her 6-7 albums and a trip to Muscle Shoals, Alabama before her career really took off record sales-wise but her gifts are in ample abundance every step of the way for Lady Soul, the first woman inducted into the rock'n'roll hall of fame. After a short tribute to comedian David Brenner who passed away this weekend, we present two hours of the acoustic and electric lady land that is Aretha Franklin. Enjoy.
