Why Do We Criminalize Pregnant Women?
9 plays

morningamp:

I think that the root of this [criminalizing pregnant women] is tied back to the pro-life movement and trying to give fertilized eggs, embryos, fetuses, certain ‘inalienable rights’ which by their very existence alienate the mother, and put the mother at risk of harm and prosecution.”
- Cassandra Gaddo from the Council of Feminist Thought

Mixing it up on the Council are Cassandra Gaddo from Step Up Women’s Network and comedian Liza Treyger. One #FemWed topic that was discussed was the criminalization of pregnant women for drug use. Along with AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams, they analyzed points on whether or not the root for this falls from the abortion controversy and what protective rights women may or may not have have in certain pro-life states.

Too Good To Be True? Two State Universities Propose Major Tuition Reduction Plans
18 plays

morningamp:

The University of Michigan and the University of Wisconsin have proposed plans to drastically reduce tuition for incoming students. Michigan proposes a deferred, interest-free payment plan, where students start paying back after they graduate and at Madison, two professors propose just straight up dropping tuition for the first two years through reinvestment of financial aid from private to public universities.

The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams discussed what this can do for incoming students, what this means for the future of higher education and whether or not this breakthrough will ripple onto other college campuses.

Secret Colours on Live From Studio 10 (aired April 2014)
95 plays

Chicago’s Secret Colours have been generating a national buzz around the release of their 2-part album Positive Distractions and their sound steeped in 60’s psychedelia and 90’s Britpop. With new album and mostly new members, comes a new fresh approach to songwriting but there’s still plenty of reverb on jangly guitar riffs and spacey organ sounding keys to make it one of Secret Colours’ best.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org, and features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond. One hour of music and interview, all live. The show is hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10

On this week’s Barber Shop Show, we’ll be joined by

•             Susan Smith Richardson, Editor and Publisher of The Chicago Reporter

•             Kathy Chaney, WBEZ Midday Producer

•             Maria Zamudio, Reporter with The Chicago Reporter

In our monthly news roundup, we’ll talk about the recent news that we consider good news and that we consider bad news. We’ll also talk about some of the stories that made us say, WTF?!

Here’s one of the stories we’ll be talking about, from host Richard Steele:

This is a really awful “sign of our times” and the down side of how technologically advanced we are as a society and how available the technology is…to everyone!  Recently, it was reported that several 8th graders who attend a middle school in northwest Suburban Barrington, have been sexting (sending inappropriate images among themselves), using their smart phones.”     

The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 90.7FM and 89.5FM. You can also stream live at vocalo.org

Let's Get Real: Is Colorblind Ideology a form of Racism?
35 plays

morningamp:

The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams (along with a few callers) kicked off the show with some real table talk! Stephen Colbert satirizes white liberalism by saying he “can’t be racist because I don’t see color.” But psychologists say colorblindness has similar effects to racist beliefs: it keeps the “colorblind” person from recognizing and more importantly, valuing, individual difference.
