John Taylor Gatto

Tune in for a very special PLANET ERSTWILD. Host James Moore speaks with renowned author, speaker, and educational reformer John Taylor Gatto. If you enjoy having your assumptions challenged, you'll want to hear this.

Gatto spent 30 years teaching in public schools in New York. He was 3 times awarded the NYC Teacher of the Year before quitting with a Wall Street Journal article writing he was tired of hurting children. He contends that, by design, institutional teaching is not really teaching and actually harms children, breeding boredom, fostering obedience, and valuing conformity, competition and testing over promoting original, critical thinking and self-teaching.

Prof Richard WolffCohosts Stuart Tanner & James Moore speak with Professor Richard Wolff who presents an alternative look at American economics. The Harvard/Stanford/Yale educated Wolff is Economics Emeritus, at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where he taught economics from 1973 to 2008. His thesis that deep economic structures--the relationship of wages to profits, of workers to boards of directors, and of debts to income--are the root cause of our economic meltdown means the Great Recession may be far more than simply a "financial" crisis. This is riveting stuff.

Beth HowardAmerican Gothic Pie LadyThank you, Beth, for dropping by solar-powered KRUU-FM in Fairfield this week for your "Weekend Edition" taping with host Liane Hanson that airs Sunday.

But even more so for one of the most sumptuous pieces of apple pie I've ever tasted (not to mention the fruitful conversation).

That it was made in the American Gothic house by an Ottumwa native only adds to the heartland sweetness.

All I can say is if you give Beth Howard a chance, every day is National Pie Day! Have fun in Chicago today where 800 slices of pie will be given away to celebrate National Pie Day. Lord knows, the world needs more pie!!
