Ageing Gracefully 67 mins – “In a time so divided, it can be hard to find connections that can bring us together. Ironically, it’s our differences—the intrinsic uniqueness of individuals—that have the greatest capacity to unite us.

These stories give us the opportunity to go beyond ideology and politics and focus on the aspects of life that impact us all.  Join Goldbloom and two of Brief’s most popular guests as they explore authenticity and empathy in a curated, polarized world. You’ll see Flossie Lewis’ take on growing old with grace as well as author and poet Mahogany Browne’s powerful delivery of her poem “Black Girl Magic.” After, Browne, Goldbloom and Lewis will all share the stage with Lauren Schiller and provide us with insight on how to impact the lives of those around us.” At the link find the title, “Brief But Spectacular Stories, Aug, 2018,” right-click “Media files cc_20180822_FEA Brief Spectacular For Podcast.mp3” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Agriculture and Climate Change 68 mins – “It’s become increasingly and painfully obvious to farmers in California that climate change means more than just rising temperatures. Evermore erratic weather patterns fuel longer droughts, bigger floods and even more frequent wildfires. As we slowly come to terms with the consequences to our rural communities, food supply, local economy and the environment, forward-thinking farmers are learning to both adapt as well as fight back. Hear from the frontlines of an emergent climate-smart farming movement: soil scientists, family farmers and policy advocates all working to promote practices that prove more resilient in the face of these climatic changes. While global monopolies try to sell newfangled, patented quick fixes to the problem of feeding a growing population in the age of climate change, these grassroots efforts are proving effective with a more natural, holistic and egalitarian approach: building up the organic matter in soils, cover cropping, mindfully integrating crops and livestock, planting hedgerows, using compost, and applying rotational grazing. Not only does this dynamic suite of practices retain water better, endure temperature fluctuations and offer more resilient environments when disaster does strike, but together they can also sequester carbon back into the ground, reversing the trend that led us to the problem in the first place. While there are no easy solutions, these climate resilience champions—often overshadowed by other, more visible players in the fight against climate change—are working hard to reshape our agricultural system for long-term sustainability and regeneration. From ecology and policy to practical on-farm techniques, come learn how the land that feeds us—with a little help from education and policy reform, city slickers, and country folk alike—can help save our planet too.” At the link find the title, “Farmers on the Frontlines in Our Fight Against Climate Change, Aug, 2018,” right-click “Media files cc_20180814_MLF_Farmers on Frontlines for podcast.mp3” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

You can download the report, Impact of CAF II-funded Networks: Lessons From Two Rural Minnesota Exchanges here. Bill and Christopher discuss the challenges Bill and his team encountered when they initially decided to gather documentation on what services CAF II funded projects brought to rural Minnesota. In order to get past those challenges, the researchers devised a methodology that other communities can reproduce. Once the team had answered the technical questions about infrastructure, they analyzed the results and applied them to Minnesota’s statewide goals for broadband access. They determined that, in addition to lack of transparency regarding CAF II network plans, the tendency to invest in slower speeds, including DSL, will not help Minnesota.

Our summer Public Policy Intern Hannah Rank took on the task of writing a detailed report about the project. This week, she sat down with Christopher to offer a preview of what she’s learned. In addition to an outline about the history of ISP Monkebrains and where they obtained additional funding for the project, Christopher and Hannah discuss the pros and cons of the California Advanced Services Fund (CASF). They discuss how a smart digital inclusion program as part of such a plan to offer broadband to lower-income households can help those enrolled and help keep overall costs down.  Be sure to look for the release of our report this fall to learn more details about how San Francisco and Monkeybrains are bringing better connectivity to public housing to help residents participate in the digital economy.

In Hype, Nina Shapiro distinguishes between falsehoods and the evidence-backed truth. Shapiro has more than twenty years of experience in both clinical and academic medicine. In her work at Harvard and UCLA, she helps patients make important health decisions every day. She brings those lessons to life in her book with a blend of science and personal stories to discuss her dramatic new definition of “a healthy life.”  Shapiro will discuss Hype and the popular misconceptions found in the media. Come for a discussion on topics such as exercise and supplements, diets and detoxes, alternative medicine and vaccines, and medical testing and media coverage.” At the link find the title, “Hype: A Doctor’s Guide to Medical Myths and Bad Advice, Aug, 2018,” right-click “Media files cc_20180815_MLF Hype for podcast.mp3” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Inspiration on Delancey Street 66 mins – “While our government continues to stumble clumsily, or just gives up, trying to get its own political professionals to converse with each other productively, the Delancey Street Foundation manages to run several successful businesses with ex-felons, prostitutes and substance abusers as its employees. The Foundation that Dr. Karl Menninger called “the best and most successful rehabilitation program I have studied in the world” was started in 1971 with just a few residents. Now located in NY, MA, NM, NC, SC and Los Angeles, and headquartered here in San Francisco, Delancey Street is a residential educational community providing academic, vocational and social skills, and the discipline, values and attitudes its residents need to live in society legitimately and successfully—and drug, crime and alcohol free. Silbert herself lives in Delancey Street, and raised her children there, where everyone functions as an extended family. Although the 20,000 graduates were often violent gang members, or hardcore dope fiends, who were functionally illiterate and had never worked at even an unskilled job for more than three months, Silbert believed they could become their own solution to their problems. Delancey Street’s approach is to develop strengths rather than focus on problems. With no staff and no government funding, these graduates and current residents have not only turned their own lives around, but have built the entire organization.” At the link find the title, “Successful Rehabilitation: The Delancey Street Foundation, Aug, 2018,” right-click “Media files cc_20181820_MLF Delancy Explicit For Podcast.mp3” and select “Save Link As” from the pop- up menu.

Jason Kander 71 mins – “This program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation. Jason Kander is no stranger to courage. From his beginnings as a combat veteran in Afghanistan to his position as an unlikely rising star in American politics, Kander’s trajectory is a fascinating example of bravery rooted in moral ethics. This bravery has put him at the forefront of the country’s political realm, with leaders such as Barack Obama touting him as the future of the Democratic Party. Kander’s rise to prominence is marked by several unconventional accomplishments. At 31, as secretary of state in Missouri, he was the country’s youngest statewide elected official—and the first millennial. During the 2016 U.S. Senate election, Kander became an overnight viral sensation in a gun control ad where he advocated for stricter background checks while assembling a rifle blindfolded. In 2017, Kander founded Let America Vote, an action organization dedicated to ending voter suppression, and in 2018 Kander proved his loyalty to local community by officially announcing his run for Kansas City mayor. In his new memoir, Outside the Wire, Kander not only details his fascinating life but also imparts wisdom to readers looking to make a difference on their own terms. Join us for an undoubtedly candid conversation about civic duty and staying true to your ideals.” At the link find the title, “Protect the Vote, with Jason Kander, Aug, 2017,” right-click “Media files cc_20170803_Inforum Protect the Vote with Jason Kander Podcast.mp3” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Kidnapped in Somalia 39 mins – “Kidnapped by Somali pirates, journalist Michael Scott Moore spent two and half years in captivity. At times he was held on land, other times at sea. Once, when he was on a 160-foot tuna boat, he tried to escape by jumping over the side at night. “It was, like, a 20 foot leap off the deck of the ship, and I was just exultant at first,” Moore says. Moore had hoped the pirates would leave him behind in the water. “The engine wasn’t in terrific shape, so I didn’t think there was a way to turn around the ship,” he says. Instead, the captain cut the engine and let the boat drift towards him. As the big industrial ship closed in on him in the dark water, Moore made a snap decision: He opted to get back on board. “They found me eventually with the search lights and I raised my hand and they threw me a life preserver,” he says. “By that point everything was pretty desperate and pretty hopeless.” The pirates had initially demanded a $20 million ransom, but as the years passed, Moore’s mother negotiated the figure down to $1.6 million. Eventually she raised enough money to free her son. Moore writes about his ordeal in the memoir, The Desert and the Sea.At the link right-click “Download” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Medical Doctor Stories 50 mins – “The day-to-day of internship, residency, and an MD career doesn’t allow much time to process the effect it’s having on the practitioner.  Rushing from one patient to the next, putting out the fires even while drinking from the firehose, and being selfless in service to the patients’ needs means that one’s own stories are buried, neglected.  More and more, however, medicine is acknowledging the need for practitioners to examine and tell their stories so that they can learn from them, teach their lessons to others, and show colleagues that they are not alone.  In 2015 Dr. Emily Silverman was in her second year of her internal medicine residency at UCSF.  She found herself with a little more time following her frenetic intern year, and with her own stories that had gone untold and unexamined.  She started to write, first in a blog she called The Nocturnists.  Then, in 2016 she organized the first live storytelling session with her colleagues….” At the link right-click “Download” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Mitochondria Importance 105 mins– “Today’s guest is Dr. Douglas Wallace, the director of the Center for Mitochondrial and Epigenomic Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He is internationally known as the founder of mitochondrial genetics. Mitochondria are tiny structures within cells that produce 90 percent of a person’s energy and play an essential role in health and disease. Dr. Wallace’s groundbreaking research in the 1970s defined the genetics of DNA within the mitochondria, as distinct from DNA in a cell’s nucleus. His research has shown that mitochondrial DNA is inherited exclusively from the mother and that genetic alterations in the mitochondrial DNA can result in a wide range of metabolic and degenerative diseases. One of Dr. Wallace’s seminal contributions has been to use a mitochondrial DNA variation to reconstruct human origins and the ancient migrations of women. These studies revealed that humans arose in Africa approximately 200,000 years ago, and that women as well as men left Africa about 65,000 years ago to colonize Eurasia. Dr. Wallace was inducted last year into the Italian Academy of Sciences during the academy’s 234th annual meeting in Rome. Founded in 1782, membership in the academy is limited to 40 Italian scientists and 25 foreign members. Over the years, the academy has seen such notable members as Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Louis Pasteur and Rita Levi-Montalcini.” At the link left-click the down-pointing, and select “Save As” and “OK” to get the podcast.

Oxycontin Story 37 minsThere’s no shortage of statistics about the depth of America’s opioid epidemic — there were 72,000 overdose deaths just last year — but numbers don’t tell the whole story. Beth Macy takes a ground-level look at the crisis in Dopesick, a new book focusing on central Appalachia. Macy has spent three decades reporting on the region, focusing on social and economic trends and how they affect ordinary people — she says this area is the birthplace of the modern opioid epidemic. Dopesick explores the lives of young heroin users and their long-suffering parents, and takes an intimate look at drug dealers and the cops, judges, doctors and health activists struggling to fight the epidemic. Macy also details the actions of executives of a pharmaceutical company that aggressively marketed opioids. Many users became addicted to drugs such as OxyContin when the medications were prescribed for pain, and moved to heroin when it became harder to get more pills. Macy says she herself grew up with a father who was addicted to alcohol, which made addiction a particularly difficult subject to tackle. “The only way I could stand to write this book was to write about the people fighting back — so the families and the first responders….,” she says. “My goal was to mobilize people to care about this.”
