Hacking, Phreaking, Anonymous and Asymmetrical warfare

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I was following the antics of the wildly amorphous phenomenon known as Hacking. Short history: Hacking originated at MIT in the 1950’s as part of their model train club. In the days before phones and computers became almost identical, people like John Draper┬ábecame the godfathers […]

The suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing–interesting link

WARNING–CONSPIRACY THEORIES AHEAD When I’m at WBCR, I seem to be the go-to source for many of my colleagues who want to know arcane things about history. My problem is that I read a lot of alternate press pretty voraciously, and every once in awhile, I recall some obscure detail I’ve read a decade or […]

A great show on Sex and Politics!

We had a helluva time tonight on Sex and Politics–hope you were listening, but if you weren’t, here are the highlights! We spoke to Rachel Schragis of People’s Puppets of Occupy Wall Street. Lots of big events planned for May first, and a history of the colorful giant puppets you see at demonstrations. Their work […]

This week Sex and Politics–women’s health and breast cancer

This Thursday on Sex and Politics, we’re doing a special show on health issues for women, and I’d like you to listen in. I’ll be talking to James Brophy, a Canadian researcher and co-author on a new study indicating links between breast cancer incidence and exposure to substances in plastics. While the study concentrated on […]

“We Kill 50 Civilians for every Terrorist”

I had a great Sex And Politics interview last night with Marc Saviano, a peace activist and organizer out of Kansas City, Missouri. The groups he is working with are doing important work. Trifecta Resista has made a lie out of the right-wing bromide that anti-war activists are giving President Obama a free pass. I […]

the back-and-forth on the gun debate

A couple of weeks ago, I tried to line up the contradictions of the pro-gun lobby’s version of history. This was in reaction to two pro-gun guys being on WBCR Sex and Politics. Last night, we played host to another Second Amendment advocate, and I was able to bring out some of the more nuanced […]

Bradley Manning’s Awful Day–and ours

I was afraid it would come to this. On Thursday, Bradley Manning appeared in court in Fort Meade, Maryland and read a 35 page statement about his actions and motivations behind the leaking of information. Manning had been a US Army intelligence analyst stationed in Iraq, and he he was increasingly disillusioned about the things […]

Don’t know much about that Gun thing…

On Thursday (2/7), WBCR‘s Sex and Politics played host to two advocates of full gun rights (aka the status quo) in the aftermath of the attacks at Sandy Hook, Connecticut, Aurora, Colorado, and any number of similar storied recent slaughters of Americans by firearms. I’m not going to re-hash the arguments and counter-arguments made that […]
