Souls
Grant details: AQ-234985-16
Title: Souls
Director: Rafael F. Narvaez
Producer: Rafael F. Narvaez
Abstract: Do we have a soul? Is it material, like air, or immaterial, like a shadow? Are souls feminine and masculine or do they remove their gender as they exit the body? If souls resemble the body, can they be, say, blue-eyed, or blind, or white, or black? Are there infant souls in the afterworld? Do they grow up? When we sleep, does the soul leave the body to enter into an otherworldly order that we experience as a dream? Can it be trapped there, to be sold on the black market? Where does it go after death? To the bush, the domain of spirits? To the underworld, where it loses its memory? Is there a place reserved for the souls of soldiers and one for those of philosophers? Can the soul be tortured? Are stars souls? Is the soul a bird? Questions and beliefs like these have marked people’s identities, influenced how we see others, and how we divide the world. Spanish colonists, for instance, often thought that “Indians” did not have a soul, which partly explains the savagery of the colonial process. In the West, a body/soul rhetoric has evolved along with features of our civilization, a process that has marked, in particular, the humanities and the arts. (Why is medieval plainchant, for example, devoid of beat? Because beat, the clergy argued, leaps to the feet and to the hip to pollute the soul.) Changes in beliefs about the soul have also marked how we perceive reality, and even how we experience our body. Consider sexuality, for instance, an embodied experience historically regarded as a threat to the soul. The world has seen age-old battles for the control of this body/soul rhetoric; battles that, still waged today, need our attention because they ultimately are about the social construction of reality and of features of civilization itself.

I think that's another thing that this book, I hope, teaches our children: being willing to take risks because the rewards on the other side of those risks can be phenomenal."

The Liturgy of Lay Foundations in Ghent, 1400 - 1500
Grant details: FA-57954-14
Title: The Liturgy of Lay Foundations in Ghent, 1400 - 1500
Writer: Barbara Haggh-Huglo
Director: Yale Institute of Sacred Music
Producer: Yale Institute of Sacred Music
Abstract: The Liturgy of Lay Foundations in Ghent 1400-1500 Did the laity control worship at church altars outside the main choir in Ghent in the century before the Reformation? How can these lay liturgies be categorized? Were they always votive? In this presentation, I explore the liturgies of a variety of lay foundations and the extent to which they were personal, private, communal, or of political consequence. I argue for a different understanding of late-medieval liturgy, one that is mindful of those physically present or not and their role, and of such events as bread distributions, or essential objects, including paintings. Discussed are the liturgy for the dead and for series of votive masses, for the Mandatum, and for two foundations of wider import, that for a mass before the Adoration of the Lamb, and for a new Marian feast, the 'Recollectio festorum beate Marie virginis.'

Title: African North American Genealogy Across the US-Canada Border with Adam Arenson
Director: Bernice Benett

Abstract: Dr. Adam Arenson discusses his ongoing research about African North Americans—those men and women, born free or enslaved, who crossed or re-crossed the U.S.-Canada border in the era of emancipation, Civil War, and Reconstruction. We will discuss how difficult it is to determine how many fugitive slaves and free blacks were in Canada; the history of the more than 600 African North Americans who returned to fight for the U.S. Colored Troops; the thousands more who returned to the United States in the decades that followed; the hundreds of men, women, and children who traveled north to Canada after emancipation; and even the reason Civil War records are filled with fake claims of Canadian and other citizenship.

Mapping the Medieval World in Islamic Cartography
Grant details: FB-57108-13
Title: Mapping the Medieval World in Islamic Cartography
Writer: Karen Pinto
Director: Nir Shafir
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Hundreds of cartographic images of the world and its regions exist scattered throughout collections of medieval and early modern Arabic, Persian, and Turkish manuscripts. The sheer number of these extant maps tells us that from the thirteenth century onward, when these map-manuscripts began to proliferate, visually depicting the world became a major preoccupation of medieval Muslim scholars. However, these cartographers did not strive for mimesis, that is, representation or imitation of the real world. These schematic, geometric, and often symmetrical images of the world are iconographic representations—‘carto-ideographs’—of how medieval Muslim cartographic artists and their patrons perceived their world and chose to represent and disseminate this perception. In this podcast, we sit down with Karen Pinto to discuss the maps found in the cartographically illustrated Kitab al-Masalik wa-al-Mamalik (Book of Routes and Realms) tradition, which is the first known geographic atlas of maps, its influence on Ottoman cartography, and how basic versions of these carto-ideographs were transported back to villages and far-flung areas of the Islamic empire.

Abstract: Michael Rosen is joined by writer Matthew Engel and linguist Dr Lynne Murphy to discuss the Americanisation of English. Is the pace of Americanisation of British English really increasing? Why do Americans say eggplant and sidewalk, rather than aubergine and pavement? Why does your spellchecker insist it's 'color' not 'colour'? Do Americans complain about the 'Britishisms' creeping into use in the States as much as we complain about Americanisms in use in the UK? Does it really matter if British and American English begin to be used interchangeably and could we stem the flow if we tried?

After 150 Years, 'Little Women' Still Resonates
Grant details: FZ-231734-16
Title: After 150 Years, 'Little Women' Still Resonates
Writer: ILANA MASAD
Abstract: About once a year I turn to one particularly tattered book, its red cover worn, its two halves taped together after falling apart from frequent use years ago. Like so many others through generations, I return to this book again and again, called to it by some inexplicable yearning for a life I never had, a nostalgia for a time I didn't experience, and a desire to learn and mature with the characters. Though I have never been able to choose a "favorite book," I have always known that if I had to be stuck on a desert island — with only one book to bring with me — it would be this one: Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott. Each time I read it, I discover something new and wonderful while simultaneously communing with the familiar and beloved.

Abstract: The psychotherapist Esther Perel recently said that disasters operate like “relationship accelerators.” They cause both a spike in divorce and a spike in marriages and babies. Most of us are hunkering down with people we already have some sort of relationship with, but a few people have chosen to hunker down with practical strangers. Gali Beeri is 37 and works as an executive assistant. Joshua Boliver is 42 and does visual effects for movies. They both live in New York City. In March, as the city was preparing to lock down, they made the unlikely decision to quarantine together after their very first date.

Frankenstein and His Creation: Who’s the Real Monster?
Grant details: GW-255974-17
Title: Frankenstein and His Creation: Who’s the Real Monster?
Writer: Christine Wisehart
Producer: Christiane Wisehart
Abstract: Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein introduced the world to archetypes we’re still familiar with: the mad scientist and his terrifying creation. But the novel is more than just a horror classic. It also asks questions about the ethics of scientific and technological innovation–questions that we still struggle with today. On this episode of Examining Ethics, we explore one of these questions: is it wrong for scientists and innovators to work or create in isolation? First, we introduce you to “sociability,” an important, behavior-shaping idea in the scientific community of the nineteenth century. Then, we discuss whether scientists and innovators working today have similar ethical obligations. We cover things like the importance of transparency in the ethics of scientific and technological innovation. We also explore the value of democratic oversight to the world of science and technology.

Abstract: This truly gruesome program explores the phenomenon of the execution ballad—the printed pamphlet telling, in song, the story of the crime and of the condemned. These songs tell of the descent into vice, give account of the crime in all its appalling detail and purport to give voice to the true repentance of the doomed sinner. In what was a profitable line of business for early printers, the songs were declaimed by the ballad seller and spruiked to the crowd who’d gathered to see the offender put to death.

Clearing Up The ‘Art Acne’ On Georgia O’Keeffe’s Paintings
Grant details: PR-258900-18
Title: Clearing Up The ‘Art Acne’ On Georgia O’Keeffe’s Paintings
Writer: Ira Flato
Director: Alex Lim
Producer: Alexa Lim
Abstract: The painter Georgia O’Keeffe is known for her bold paintings of landscapes and flowers. When talking about those famous flowers, she said: “Nobody sees a flower–really–it is so small–we haven’t time–and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time.” She took her small observations and filled her canvas with bright colors and close-ups, so those flowers couldn’t be missed. Recently, scientists took a closer look at those paintings and noticed smaller details that O’Keeffe did not intend to include. They found “art acne”—small pock marks—on many of her paintings caused by age and reactions of the pigments. Marc Walton, co-director of the Center for Scientific Studies in the Arts at Northwestern University and Art Institute of Chicago, talks about the chemistry behind the “art acne,” and how these paintings might be conserved in the future.

The Iowa Labor History Oral Project: History From The Ground Up

Title: The Iowa Labor History Oral Project: History From The Ground Up
Director: Ben Kieffer
Producer: Rick Brewer
Abstract: Since the late 1970s, the Iowa Labor History Oral Project has been collecting interviews from the working class across Iowa. They are collecting history from the ground up, as opposed to leaders or people with power. "We have access to new kinds of sources, including those of the Iowa Labor History Oral Project, that enable us to get at the experience of ordinary people, of everyday working people," said Shelton Stromquist, Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Iowa, "whose work lives, whose organizing, whose building of unions in many cases is really an integral part of the fabric of our state and of the nation." On this edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer speaks with Stromquist and the Oral and Public Historian at the Iowa Labor Center, John McKerly, about Iowa's rich labor history. During this conversation Kieffer, Stromquist and McKerly highlight six individuals from the collection whose stories, when put together, help best tell Iowa's labor history. "There are interviews that touch literally every town and city in the state and every realm of work and labor union acitivity," said Stromquist, "I don't know of another collection in the country that has that character."

Toña’s Crossing the River and Other Stories of Fight and Resistance from El Salvador 3 parts
Grant details: PW-259117-18
Title: Toña’s Crossing the River and Other Stories of Fight and Resistance from El Salvador 3 parts
Writer: Marta Valier
Director: Marta Valier
Producer: Tom & Ethel Bradley Center
Abstract: Marta Valier produced and hosted this series based on oral histories with people that lived in El Salvador during the liberation war (1980–1992). The 1970s brought to El Salvador increasing government repression, including the creation of government-organized death squads to combat opposition movements and in 1980 a series of failed military juntas took power. By 1981, leftist guerrillas and political groups joined forces, forming the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front, the FMLN. Then, throughout the 1980s, a civil war was waged between the FMLN and the U.S.-backed Salvadoran military forces.

Primary URL Description: In this first chapter, we hear from Linda Garrett, a senior policy analyst at the Center for Democracy in the Americas; and Toña Rios, who migrated to Los Angeles from El Salvador in 1981 and is now a pastor at Baldwin Park United Methodist Church in Los Angeles County. In the second chapter, we keep following Linda Garrett and we meet Carlos Henríquez Consalvi, known as Santiago, who also traveled to San Salvador from Nicaragua with the intention to establish Radio Venceremos, a radio station that operated in areas controlled by the insurgency and that he kept clandestine for 11 years. The third chapter centers on El Rescate human rights representative Linda Garrett’s encounter with Salvadoran political prisoner Héctor Bernabé Recinos Aguirre, illegally detained for more than four years for organizing the first national strike in 1980.

CWRGM Podcast
Grant details: PW-269391-20
Title: CWRGM Podcast
Writer: Susannah J. Ural
Writer: Stephanie Seal Walters
Writer: John Heckman
Director: Susannah J. Ural, Ph.D.
Producer: John Heckman
Abstract: This is funded by the NHPRC, not the NEH, but it is a scholarly audio recording tied to the project in year 1. In March-April 2021, CWRGM partnered with "The Tattooed Historian," John Heckman, to launch a five-part Facebook Live series. This featured CWRGM Director Susannah Ural, Senior Assistant Editor Stephanie Seal Walters, and one field expert each week. We could have created our own podcast, but Heckman had a built-in audience that would drive far more viewers to our inaugural events. We also archived video from our live shows and stripped the audio to create CWRGM's first podcast series. Funded by USM's Dale Center for the Study of War & Society, we reached an incredible audience: • Engaged over 6,000 viewers over the 5-week series on Facebook Live. This does not include YouTube. The number there is a bit less than 10% of the Facebook number as that channel is still in its infancy. • Over 500 likes/shares on Instagram and Twitter combined for the events. • Over 1,500 downloads of the podcast series • Interacted with audience in US, Canada, UK, Australia, with others scattered around the world You can access all of the material – videos and podcasts at https://cwrgm.org/page/podcast. Between this effort and other public transcription events, we have attracted many volunteer transcribers, some of whom are incredibly talented and dedicated.

Top of Mind "Mormon Colonies: Mormons in the US-Mexico Borderlands" (32:58)
Grant details: PY-258635-18
Title: Top of Mind "Mormon Colonies: Mormons in the US-Mexico Borderlands" (32:58)
Abstract: The FBI has joined the investigation into the murder of three women and six children in Northern Mexico last week by suspected cartel gunmen. The victims were dual US-Mexico citizens from a community that identifies as “Mormon” but is not affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Last week on Top of Mind, we spoke with an expert on the independent –or fundamentalist –Mormon communities in Mexico –some who practice polygamy, some who don’t. There’s also a community of Mormons who are actively affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have been rooted for generations on both sides of the US-Mexico border. They are a fascinating example of the way many people living at border see it as a fluid boundary, not at all clear-cut.

Writer: Leyla Kayhan Elbirlik
Director: Sam Dolbee
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: How did couples get married and divorced in the Ottoman Empire? Leyla Kayhan Elbirlik discusses marriage and divorce cases in Ottoman Istanbul, focusing on research that she completed by examining the records of Istanbul Bab, Davud Pasha and Ahi Çelebi courts between 1755-1840. While Elbirlik's research shows that women actively use the courts in matters related to marriage, divorce and property, it also reassesses the widespread perceptions about the role of women in the Ottoman family and society.

Between European and Ottoman: Hellenic Grand Dragomans, Roman Subjects, and Classical Ruins at the Turn of the 18th Century
Grant details: RA-50003-03
Title: Between European and Ottoman: Hellenic Grand Dragomans, Roman Subjects, and Classical Ruins at the Turn of the 18th Century
Writer: Leal, Dr. Karen
Abstract: By the nineteenth century, philhellenic Europeans had appropriated the classical Greek world as their distinct cultural patrimony. However, sources composed in the late 1600s and early 1700s by Ottoman dignitaries, Greek Orthodox intellectuals, and French and English travelers reveal a more fluid period when the Greco-Roman tradition exerted an influence on the perceptions all these (sometimes overlapping) groups had of themselves and one another. Greek, Ottoman, French, and English literary texts, archival records, and visual sources thus reveal the cross-cultural currents and ties connecting members of the Ottoman intelligentsia with their counterparts in Paris and London in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Lecture given by Karen Leal, Kluge Fellow.

Ottoman History Podcast no. 185, Turks Across Empires
Grant details: RA-50040-06
Title: Ottoman History Podcast no. 185, Turks Across Empires
Writer: James H. Meyer
Writer: Nir Shafir
Writer: Ella Fratantuono
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Pan-Turkism rose to prominence as a political ideology during the early twentieth century, heavily influenced by Muslim intellectuals that traveled between the Russian and Ottoman spheres. For many of these figures such as Yusuf Akçura, Ismail Gasprinski, and Ahmet Agaoglu, Pan-Turkism became the political movement that defined their legacies. However, as James Meyer explains in his new monograph entitled Turks Across Empires, these intellectuals engaged with numerous other issues of the period well before becoming the Pan-Turkists they are remembered as today. In this episode, Nir Shafir and Ella Fratantuono talk to James Meyer about this research and explore what the history of the Pan-Turkists tells us about the broader sociopolitical connections between Russia and the Ottoman Empire.

Writer: Nir Shafir
Writer: Bogac Ergene
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Were Ottoman courts just? Bogaç Ergene discusses this basic question in this podcast by forging a new path beyond the earlier views of the justice system as inherently fickle and capricious - immortalized in Weber’s concept of kadijustiz - and the idealistic views of Ottoman courts as a site of equal and fair treatment for all. Drawing on the results of research for his forthcoming publication with Metin Cosgel entitled The Economics of Ottoman Justice, Ergene argues for employing the quantitative methods of “law and economics” scholars, demonstrating that entrenched power holders in early modern Ottoman society were always able to use the Ottoman court system to produce outcomes favorable to themselves.

Ottoman History Podcast Episode 148: Beyond Heterodoxy: Kizilbash/Alevis in Ottoman Anatolia
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: Ottoman History Podcast Episode 148: Beyond Heterodoxy: Kizilbash/Alevis in Ottoman Anatolia
Writer: Ayfer Karakaya-Stump
Writer: Chris Gratien
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: The history of Anatolia's Alevi or Kizilbash community has long been written by outsiders who have variously portrayed them as mysterious, heretical, heterodox, or uncivilized. Alevism has been often juxtaposed with the high religion would-be orthodox Sunni practice. This historical understanding of Alevis has continued to influence the way these communities are represented in the present. In this episode, Ayfer Karakaya-Stump challenges this binary. Drawing on previously unexamined sources produced by the Ottoman Alevi community itself, she seeks a new road to understanding Alevism and the relationship of Alevi communities with the Ottoman and Safavid states, Sufi movements of the time, and the communities that surrounded them.

Ottoman History Podcast Episode 252: Tracing Plague in the Ottoman Empire
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: Ottoman History Podcast Episode 252: Tracing Plague in the Ottoman Empire
Writer: Nukhet Varlik
Director: Nir Shafir
Producer: Ottoman History Podcast
Abstract: Geneticists and historians are generally considered strange bedfellows. However, new advances in bio-archaeology and genetics are facilitating this odd coupling. In this episode, we speak to Nükhet Varlik, author of Plague and Empire in the Early Modern Mediterranean World: the Ottoman experience, 1347-1600 (Cambridge University Press), about how genetic evidence has transformed the study of the plague in the past ten years, allowing geneticists to more readily identify the presence of Yersinia pestis bacteria in human remains. Whereas before historians had been hesitant to diagnose diseases posthumously, they can now speak with greater certainty about the presence of plague. We then discuss the life of plague in the early modern Ottoman Empire in particular, focusing on the creation of ‘plague capitals’ in the urban centers of the Ottoman Empire following the conquest of Constantinople and how integrating the Ottoman experience of plague changes the story of how historians of medicine approach the topic. To inspire future collaborations among our listeners, we end with a peek at the process of working with geneticists and what such approaches can contribute to the study of the history of the Middle East.

Ottoman History Podcast 333: Piracy and Law in the Ottoman Mediterranean
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: Ottoman History Podcast 333: Piracy and Law in the Ottoman Mediterranean
Writer: Joshua White
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Pirates are usually imagined as outlaws. But as the history of the early modern Mediterranean demonstrates, the line between illegal raiding and legitimate maritime violence was blurry, easily crossed, and often a moving target. In this episode, we talk to Joshua White about his book Piracy and Law in the Ottoman Mediterranean. We consider how piracy shaped legal institutions and thought in the Ottoman world, and we get a glimpse of the fascinating and liminal world of pirates, jurists, and officials in the Ottoman Mediterranean.

The Mediterranean in the Age of Global Piracy
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: The Mediterranean in the Age of Global Piracy
Writer: Daniel Hershenzon
Writer: Joshua White
Writer: Emrah Safa Gürkan
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: Piracy is often depicted as a facet of the wild, lawless expanses of the high seas. But in this episode, we explore the order that governed piracy, captivity, and ransom in the early modern Mediterranean and in turn, how these practices shaped early modern politics, Mediterranean connections, and the emergent notions of international law. Emrah Safa Gürkan talks about Ottoman corsairs and the practicalities of piracy in the early modern Mediterranean. Joshua White discusses facets of Islamic law and gender in the realm of piracy. And Daniel Hershenzon explores the paradoxical connections forged by slavery, captivity, and ransom on both sides of the Mediterranean.

Plague in the Ottoman World
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: Plague in the Ottoman World
Writer: Orhan Pamuk
Writer: Nukhet Varlik
Writer: Yaron Ayalon
Director: Chris Gratien
Producer: Chris Gratien
Abstract: The plague is caused by a bacteria called Yersinia pestis, which lives in fleas that in turn live on rodents. Coronavirus is not the plague. Nonetheless, we can find many parallels between the current pandemic and the experience of plague for people who lived centuries ago. This special episode of Ottoman History Podcast brings together lessons from our past episodes on plague and disease in the early modern Mediterranean. Our guests offer state of the art perspectives on the history of plague in the Ottoman Empire, and many of their observations may also be useful for thinking about epidemics in the present day. For instructors and students, we encourage you to listen with our comprehension and discussion questions in this GoogleDoc.

The Context and Afterlife of the Armenian Genocide
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: The Context and Afterlife of the Armenian Genocide
Writer: Yektan Turkyilmaz
Director: Alice von Bieberstein
Producer: EUME, Europa im Nahen Osten – Der Nahe Osten in Europa
Abstract: The EUME project of Türkyilmaz traces the contacts and confluences of Armenian Genocide scholarship and historiography with the broader body of literature on collective violence, and especially with the Holocaust Studies. Despite the common tendency to employ a blueprint of the Holocaust as an archetype, ironically, the dialogue between the Holocaust and Armenian Genocide studies has been scant. In contrast, the framework here pays particular attention to the ways in which critical genocide studies and especially contemporary Holocaust studies, that increasingly highlight the intricacies and paradoxes of decision making processes, can offer us new avenues for analysis.

Childhood from the 19th Century to Today, on Radio Times
Grant details: RA-50082-10
Title: Childhood from the 19th Century to Today, on Radio Times
Writer: Lenore Skenazy
Writer: Jon Grinspan
Director: Marty Moss-Coane
Producer: WHYY
Abstract: Childhood today is often carefully choreographed. Structure, safety and control are just some of the hallmarks of modern American parenting. The focus is on reining in children, rather than letting them run amok. But kids in the 19th century were a very different breed, according to historian Jon Grinspan. Assertive, rebellious and freewheeling, these young scamps roamed free in gangs, getting into fights, building bonfires and attacking small animals. We compare childhood then and now, with Jon Grinspan, a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow at the Massachusetts Historical Society and Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids: How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry).

Common Phantoms: An American History of Psychic Science, an interview with Alicia Puglionesi
Grant details: RA-50142-14
Title: Common Phantoms: An American History of Psychic Science, an interview with Alicia Puglionesi
Writer: Alicia Puglionesi
Director: Claire Clark
Producer: Marshall Poe
Abstract: Séances, clairvoyance, and telepathy captivated public imagination in the United States from the 1850s well into the twentieth century. Though skeptics dismissed these experiences as delusions, a new kind of investigator emerged to seek the science behind such phenomena. With new technologies like the telegraph collapsing the boundaries of time and space, an explanation seemed within reach. As Americans took up psychical experiments in their homes, the boundaries of the mind began to waver. Common Phantoms: An American History of Psychic Science (Stanford UP, 2020) brings these experiments back to life while modeling a new approach to the history of psychology and the mind sciences. Drawing on previously untapped archives of participant-reported data, Alicia Puglionesi recounts how an eclectic group of investigators tried to capture the most elusive dimensions of human consciousness. A vast though flawed experiment in democratic science, psychical research gave participants valuable tools with which to study their experiences on their own terms. Academic psychology would ultimately disown this effort as both a scientific failure and a remnant of magical thinking, but its challenge to the limits of science, the mind, and the soul still reverberates today. Claire Clark is a medical educator, historian of medicine, and associate professor in the University of Kentucky’s College of Medicine. She teaches and writes about health behavior in historical context.

I Predict That You Will Listen To A Public Radio Show About Psychics
Grant details: RA-50142-14
Title: I Predict That You Will Listen To A Public Radio Show About Psychics
Director: Chion Wolf
Producer: Chion Wolf
Abstract: From ancient Egypt to Greek mythology, through Abrahamic religions, in ancient African and Native American spiritual traditions, in medieval Europe, and 16th century France (remember that Nostradamus guy?), humans have reliably attempted to predict the future, read minds, and communicate with the dead. And at this moment in our history, with a pandemic, protests, an upcoming election, climate change... On top of the innate chaos of being a human being, it would surely be more psychologically manageable if we could somehow see into the future. This hour, you'll listen in on my first reading ever with a psychic medium - someone who claims to be able to predict the future, and communicate with the dead. We'll hear what this work is like for her. You'll also meet a researcher who looks back at some of the ways psychics and mediums have been tested and understood - or not - in American history. Guests: Karen Hollis is a Rocky Hill-based psychic medium who has worked with over 7,000 clients, as well as the police. She’s appeared on the Discovery Channel and the Travel Channel, and she's worked with the Ghosts of New England Research Society, or G.O.N.E.R.S. Alicia Puglionesi is the author of the forthcoming book, Common Phantoms: An American History of Psychic Science, exploring questions of faith and doubt, orthodoxy and marginality that underpin the field of parapsychology

Abstract: Alicia Puglionesi is a writer and historian whose book Common Phantoms: An American History of Psychic Science tells the story of how researchers in the late 19th and early 20th century attempted to engage the outer limits of human consciousness, and how their efforts were written out of “legitimate” academic discourse.

Abstract: For much of the 20th Century, African Americans in the South were barred from the voting booth, sent to the back of the bus, and walled off from many of the rights they deserved as American citizens. Until well into the 1960s, segregation was legal. The system was called Jim Crow. In this documentary, Americans—black and white—remember life in the Jim Crow times.

Gershwin / Anima Eterna Brugge
Grant details: RQ-249784-16
Title: Gershwin / Anima Eterna Brugge
Director: Jos van Immerseel
Producer: Alpha Classics
Producer: Outhere Music France
Producer: Anima Eterna Brugge
Abstract: George Gershwin composed his Rhapsody in Blue in 1924. In the same year, he launched his collaboration with his brother Ira, which produced countless songs. He never achieved his ambition of studying with Maurice Ravel, but was always enthralled by the symphonic poem and the concerto. His masterpieces, such as An American in Paris and the opera Porgy and Bess, greatly enriched the American musical heritage. Jos van Immerseel has always been fascinated by Gershwin, but it was the appearance of a new edition of the scores that prompted the pianist and conductor to record this extensive homage. Thanks to the very latest research undertaken by the University of Michigan, the Library of Congress and the Gershwin Estate, he and his companions in Anima Eterna have got closer than ever before to the composer’s intentions, making use of the appropriate instruments. This CD includes the international premiere recording of the Gershwin Critical Edition's Rhapsody in Blue (1924 Jazz) and An American in Paris.

Grant details: RZ-50071-03
Title: Das Gänsebuch (The Geese Book): German Medieval Chant
Director: Corine Schleif

Abstract: Chants characteristic for the medieval liturgy of St. Lorenz in Nuremberg, Germany, were recorded for the first time by the Schola Hungarica, a leading ensemble for the performance of medieval chant. One of the highlights of the repertoire, also a world premier recording, is the mass formula for the feast of the Holy Lance, the most important festival celebrated annually in the city of Nuremberg between 1424 and 1524. Portions of this performance were used in a television documentary about the Holy Lance aired on Channel 2 of the BBC and on the Discovery Channel. Other chants recorded were taken from the formulas of saints venerated locally, for example, Saint Sebaldus, Saint Deocarus, Saint Martha, Saint Monica and Saint Lawrence. The recordings was produced in collaboration with Bavarian Radio, Studio Franconia and it is marketed by HNH International (Naxos).

Title: Arts Scene: "COVID in Black" at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center
Director: Daniel Breen
Abstract: If you've heard the news in the past few months, you've probably heard that we're "living in historic times." But what exactly does that mean? While we generally think of history as the past, a new project by Little Rock's Mosaic Templars Cultural Center reminds us that history is all around us, even today. "COVID In Black: The African-American Experience In Arkansas" seeks to preserve the present for the benefit of the future. The project, supported in part by the Arkansas Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the U.S. Congress, calls on Black Arkansans for submissions of items that may seem everyday, but underscore the the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on minority populations. Arts Scene caught up with Mosaic Templars Cultural Center Executive Director Christina Shutt to talk about the project, and what messages she hopes future historians will take away from today's historical artifacts. Arkansans can submit their donations to the project via Facebook or by emailing info@mosaictemplarscenter.com.

Abstract: A new story from our series The Working Tapes. In the early 1970’s, author Studs Terkel interviewed the owners of Duke & Lee’s Auto Repair in Geneva, Illinois for his book Working. He went to talk to them about fixing cars. What he found was a story about fathers and sons working together… and the tensions within a family business. We at Radio Diaries, went back to Duke & Lee’s four decades later and found the family business still intact — tensions at all. Studs recorded more than 130 interviews for Working, but most of them have never been heard. A few years ago, Radio Diaries and Project& were given access to all the raw field recordings and combed through the archive to produce, The Working Tapes. Find Parts 1 – 3 of that series on past episodes of the Radio Diaries Podcast.

Title: Mexico ’68 and the Tlatelolco Massacre (Podcast)
Writer: Joe Richman
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Joe Richman
Abstract: In 1968, Mexico City was preparing to host the Olympics. It was the first time that a Latin American country would host the Games, and the government was hoping to show off the new, modern, Mexico. At the same time, student protests were regularly sweeping through the streets of Mexico City. And just 10 days before the Olympics were to begin, on October 2, the Mexican army fired on a peaceful student demonstration in the Tlatelolco neighborhood. The official announcement was that four students were dead, but eyewitnesses said they saw hundred of dead bodies being trucked away. The Tlatelolco Massacre is one of the darkest episodes in Mexican history. Over the years, the death toll isn’t the only thing the government has covered up.

Title: The Dropped Wrench (Podcast)
Writer: Joe Richman
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Joe Richman
Abstract: On September 18, 1980, two Air Force mechanics entered the Titan II missile silo in Damascus, Arkansas. While conduct routine maintenance, they dropped a wrench. The wrench set off an explosion which killed one airman, destroyed the entire base, and sent the warhead flying 700 yards where it landed in a ditch. It was an accident that – had the warhead gone off – could have taken out half the state of Arkansas. This is a story of an accident, but it’s also a story about the dangers we still live with today, and how hard it is to really comprehend risk and probability when the consequences are almost unimaginable.

Title: Contenders: Say it Like You Mean it
Writer: Sarah Kramer
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Sarah Kramer
Abstract: Throughout American history, one of the most important job qualifications for the office of President has been knowing how to talk. You have to be able to deliver a speech that will rally the people. For Lincoln it was: “Four score and seven years ago,” FDR had: “A date which will live in infamy.” JFK asked, “Ask not what your country can do for you…” You get the idea. But one of the most influential speeches in American political history is one most people have never even heard of: William Jennings Bryan’s “Cross of Gold” speech. In this episode, we bring you the story of Bryan’s epic speech, plus the story of the presidential campaign of 1952 when a fondness for oratory doomed the candidacy of Adlai Stevenson.

Abstract: During the war in Vietnam, there was a notorious American military prison on the outskirts of Saigon called Long Binh Jail. But LBJ wasn’t for captured enemy fighters, it was for American soldiers. These were men who had broken military law. And there were a lot of them. As the unpopular war dragged on, discipline frayed and soldiers started to rebel. By the summer of 1968, over half the men in Long Binh Jail were locked up on AWOL charges. Some were there for more serious crimes, others for small stuff, like refusing to get a haircut. The stockade had become extremely overcrowded. Originally built to house 400 inmates, it became crammed with over 700 men, more than half African American. On August 29th, 1968, the situation erupted. This story aired on the 50th anniversary of the Long Binh Jail uprising.

There were three strike planes that flew over Hiroshima that day: the Enola Gay which carried the bomb, and two observation planes, the Great Artiste and the Necessary Evil. But most of the 34 crew-members didn’t know that they were carrying the most powerful weapon in the world. Russell Gackenbach was a second lieutenant and a navigator on the Necessary Evil. Today, he is the only surviving member of the mission. This story aired as part of our Last Witness series.

Abstract: On February 20, 1939, the marquee of Madison Square Garden was lit up with the evening’s main event: a “Pro-American Rally.” The organizers had chosen the date in celebration of George Washington’s birthday. 20,000 men and women streamed inside and took their seats. The view they had was stunning: a 30-foot-tall banner of Washington hung between American flags and two huge swastikas. It was the eve of World War II. The rally was sponsored by the German American Bund, one of several American organizations that openly supported Fascism and Hitler. Eighty years later, we tell the story of the rally at The Garden.

Abstract: On March 1, 1954, four people launched on armed attack on the U.S. Capitol. The insurgents, all young Puerto Rican nationalists from New York, fired more than two dozen bullets into the House of Representatives chamber in a plot to bring attention to the fight for Puerto Rico's independence. Five members of Congress were wounded in the assault. We bring to light what happened in the chamber that day using oral history interviews with eye witnesses. This story was the result of a partnership with the Office of the House Historian (U.S. House of Representatives) which houses a rich collection of archival audio.

Abstract: On August 28, 1955, 14-year-old Emmett Till was brutally murdered, a crime that served as a catalyst for the Civil Rights Movement. But Till's death was not the first racially motivated killing in Mississippi that year, and it wouldn't be the last. Just three months later, about 20 miles down the road, 33-year-old Clinton Melton was shot and killed at the gas station where he worked. Two eye witnesses identified Elmer Otis Kimball as his murderer, a white man involved in Till’s death earlier that year. 65 years after the Mississippi murders, we share the story of Clinton Melton, his wife Beulah, and the four children they left behind.

Abstract: On February 20, 1939, a rally took place inside Madison Square Garden. 20,000 people showed their support for Hitler and the Nazi Party. Outside on the streets, there were even more protestors and police on horseback. At the time, it was the largest deployment of police in New York City history. Fights were breaking out between fascists and anti-fascists. And one fight was particularly memorable. On this extended episode of the Radio Diaries Podcast, we share two stories from inside and outside The Garden.

Soul Sister: The Limits of Empathy
Grant details: TR-259360-18
Title: Soul Sister: The Limits of Empathy
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Sarah Kate Kramer
Abstract: In 1969, Grace Halsell, a white journalist, published a book called Soul Sister. It was her account of living as a “black woman” in the United States. Lyndon Johnson provided a blurb for the book, and it sold over a million copies. Halsell’s book was praised for bringing attention to the treatment of black women in the south, and harshly criticized for putting herself at the center of that narrative. On this extended version of the podcast, we tell the story of Grace Halsell and explore the larger debate of "journalistic blackface" with historians Robin Kelley and Alisha Gaines. This episode was a partnership with NPR’s Code Switch podcast.

Title: The Press is the Enemy
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Sarah Kate Kramer
Producer: Nellie Gilles
Abstract: On November 13, 1969, Spiro Agnew delivered the most famous speech ever given by a vice president. His message: the media is biased. President Nixon was getting beaten up by the press, and in response, his administration had been trying to undercut the credibility of the media, especially television news. The war between politicians and the media has a long history. This story was released as a two-part episode along with the story of Adlai Stevenson, a presidential candidate doomed to fail on this new-fangled thing called television.

Producer: Nellie Gilles
Producer: Sarah Kate Kramer
Abstract: In 1974, oral historian Studs Terkel published a book with an unwieldy title: “Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They do.” This collective portrait of America was based on more than a hundred interviews Studs did around the country. He recorded all of his interviews on a reel-to-reel tape recorder, but after the book came out, the tapes were packed away and forgotten for decades. Radio Diaries and our partners at Project& were given exclusive access to the tapes for a series called The Working Tapes. For this episode of the Radio Diaries Podcast, we produced an hour-long version of the series, with content that couldn’t fit in the original broadcasts.

Nixon at War
Grant details: TR-261123-18
Title: Nixon at War
Writer: Steve Atlas
Producer: Steve Atlas
Abstract: Most accounts of the collapse of Richard Nixon’s presidency begin with Watergate — the now iconic tale of a bungled break-in and the misbegotten cover-up that followed. But what led to Watergate? How — and more puzzlingly, why — did one of the shrewdest, most gifted political figures of his time become embroiled in so manifestly lunatic an enterprise in the first place? Intrigued by that question, writer/journalist Kurt Andersen takes a deep dive into the vast archives at the Nixon Library and emerges with an answer he wasn’t expecting: While Watergate doubtless accelerated Nixon’s spectacular fall, it was the Vietnam War that led inexorably to the break-in, and from there to the sinking of his presidency. For Andersen, who came of age in the Vietnam era, that answer in turn begs another, larger question: How did Richard Nixon, with all his foreign policy savvy, allow himself to get trapped in the same quagmire he had watched engulf his predecessor, Lyndon Johnson? These questions are the central concerns of Nixon at War. Over the course of seven episodes, Andersen peels back the onion and emerges with a new and deeper understanding of both the man and the war, and of the complex linkage between them.

EMPRESS OF THE BLUES: BESSIE SMITH

Title: EMPRESS OF THE BLUES: BESSIE SMITH
Director: Nick Spitzer
Producer: Maureen Loughran
Abstract: Bessie Smith: Empress of the Blues. Smith was called the Empress of the Blues, but she was also the highest paid African American entertainer of her generation. We explored her life from her early days performing on Chattanooga street corners and her travels on the TOBA circuit to her decade as a top selling recording artist. An interview with NYU cultural anthropologist Maureen Mahon, whose research interests include African American music and culture; the construction and performance of race and gender in music; and the relationship between race, class, generation, and culture, sheds light on Smith’s impact on music. Archival interviews with musicians who worked with Smith and recent interviews with musicians influenced by her illustrate her importance and her experience. For this program we found a great deal of support from the Hogan Jazz Archive at Tulane University.

Director: Nick Spitzer

Abstract: Ellis Marsalis Remembered: Family Memories and Music: There is no more recognizable family name in jazz from New Orleans and beyond than Marsalis. This program paid tribute to pianist and Marsalis family patriarch Ellis Marsalis Jr. who passed away from Covid-19 in April 2020, and to his musical offspring sons Branford (saxophone), Wynton (trumpet), Delfeayo (trombone) and Jason (drums and vibraphone). The conversation explores coming of age in a family of musicians, with expectations of performing at the highest level, to the culture of the interplay of traditional and modern jazz in New Orleans. Previously unheard are Wynton’s remarkable memorial oration and a live set with youngest son Jason Marsalis playing the music of his late father. It’s the enduring and thriving musical legacy of the Marsalis family.

Title: Santana Speaks
Director: Nick Spitzer
Producer: Maureen Loughran
Abstract: Santana Speaks: This program is a biography of Carlos Santana whose music represents a true musical fusion of various influences including Latin instruments, Afro beats, and blues-style solo guitar. He discusses playing music on the streets of Tijuana and on the stage at Woodstock. He discusses how he absorbed the various cultures and musics around him in San Francisco, and his hopes for a global society explored on his new album Africa Speaks. In the interview Santana cites the legendary Tito Puente as one of his cultural and musical heros. For perspective, we drew from an archival interview with the late Tito Puente, el Rey de los Timbales, about the roots of tropical Latin jazz in Spanish Harlem and how he brought his instrument, the timbales, to the foreground by moving them from the back to the front of the stage. Steve Berlin and Cesar Rosas are included to discuss Los Lobos and their mix of American pop and Mexican traditions.

Abstract: After the Storm: Katrina at 15: 15 years ago Hurricane Katrina and levee failures covered 80% of New Orleans in water. The storm left a huge human and ecological disaster in its wake.

The noted American Routes After the Storm series that came out of that tragedy offered displaced and depressed South Louisianians comfort and remembrances of home. Now 15 years later, we take a look back at the catastrophe, recovery and renewed hope for the culture of the Crescent City with another edition of this series. The series includes conversations with Irma Thomas, the Rebirth Brass Band, archived interviews with now deceased Dr. John and Alan Toussaint and archival audio from our first broadcast After the Storm in September 2005.

Title: American Routes Live
Director: Nick Spitzer
Producer: Maureen Loughran/Olivia Broslawsky
Abstract: American Routes Live: As the quarantine continued, through tracking listener comments we recognized a need for more human contact and felt that more live performance could help. We partnered with the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park and the Jean Lafitte National Park to produce a series of socially-distanced performances and artist interviews, some outside in an old firehouse yard and most in the large, well-ventilated Esplanade Studios. The programs were live-streamed with strong AV production on NPS’s Jazz Park Facebook and post-produced into American Routes performance programs. One such program featured outdoor, socially distanced interviews with Leyla McCalla and Donald Harrison, each of whom bring their family heritage forward into contemporary music, livestreamed on social media and recorded to create an American Routes program. These interviews also addressed current events through a historical cultural lens and shows the pivot we made during Covid challenges. Singer McCalla discussed how she draws on French Creole roots for inspiration, as well as from the poetry of Langston Hughes. Jazz saxophonist Big Chief Donald Harrison, discussed “Afro-New Orleans” culture and demonstrated how to bring soul, funk, and Black carnival traditions into modern jazz.

Title: 95,000 Names—Gert McMullin, Sewing the Frontline—The Keeper of the AIDS Quilt and Beyond
Producer: The Kitchen Sisters
Abstract: In 1985, Gert McMullin was one of the first San Franciscans to put a stitch on the AIDS Quilt, the quilt that began with one memorial square in honor of a man who had died of AIDS, and that now holds some 95,000 names. Gert never planned it this way, but over the decades she has become the Keeper of the Quilt and has stewarded it, repaired it, tended it, traveled with it and conserved it for some 33 years now. In 2020, when COVID-19 hit, Gert was one of the first Bay Area citizens to begin sewing masks—PPE for nurses and health care workers who were lacking proper protection—masks she makes from fabric left over from the making of the AIDS Quilt. The comfort, outrage and honoring of an earlier pandemic being used to protect people from a new one. In January of 2020 The AIDS Memorial Quilt, now part of The National AIDS Memorial, returned home to the Bay Area after 16 years in Atlanta. It took six 52-foot semis to get it there. The over sixty tons of quilt, is made up of about 48,000 panels, each 3 x 6 feet, the size of a grave. The extensive AIDS Archive, which Gert gathered, collected and protected since its earliest days, is now part of The American Folklife Center at The Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The story of Gert McMullin and the AIDS Memorial Quilt, the Gay Rights Movement in San Francisco, Harvey Milk, The White Night Riots. With interviews with LGBT Rights activist Cleve Jones who worked with Harvey Milk and conceived of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, and John Cunningham, Executive Director of the National AIDS Memorial.

The International Congress of Youth Voices — A New Generation of Keepers

Title: The International Congress of Youth Voices — A New Generation of Keepers
Producer: The Kitchen Sisters
Abstract: Picture this: 131 young people, 13 to 26 years old, from 37 countries—youth activists from around the globe— students, writers, poets, marchers, community leaders all gathered together in San Juan, Puerto Rico in August 2019, the week after the scandal-ridden government of Governor Ricardo Rosselló fell. A government brought down in large measure because of the resolve and activism of young people across the Hurricane Maria-battered island. This wasn’t part of the plan for the second meeting of the International Congress of Youth Voices. It was pure coincidence. But here they all are, coming from across the planet to learn from one another and an array of artists, writers and activists, to create a network, to tell their stories, to listen and to understand the forces that led this island to erupt. Politics of the world affect young people as much as anyone else, and they have little to no voice as major decisions are made. The International Congress of Youth Voices was founded as a means to amplify their ideas and energy and to unite young people for a weekend of collaboration. The International Congress of Youth Voices, founded by author Dave Eggers (co-founder of 826 National) and nonprofit leader Amanda Uhle, gathers the world's most inspiring teen writers and activists. They come from all over the world, including: Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, the United States, Colombia, Guatemala, Cuba, Australia, Denmark, Nepal, Russia, England, Thailand, South Africa, Ireland, Canada, Uganda, Pakistan, Burundi, France, India, and Puerto Rico.

Floating City —The Mirabeau Water Garden, New Orleans

Title: Floating City —The Mirabeau Water Garden, New Orleans
Producer: The Kitchen Sisters
Abstract: We go to New Orleans for a kind of biblical reckoning. A story of science and prayer, with a cast of improbable partners—environmental architects and nuns—coming together to create a vision forward for living with water in New Orleans. Mirabeau Water Garden, one of the largest urban wetlands in the country designed to educate, inspire and to save its neighborhood from flooding. New Orleans. Surrounded by The Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain, besieged by hurricanes and tropical storms, permeated with man made canals, levees, pumping stations …. Water is a deep and controversial issue in New Orleans. What to do with it. Where to put it. How to get rid of it? How to live with it? David Waggonner, of Waggonner & Ball Architecture & Environment has been thinking and dreaming about these questions for years. One of the primary architects behind the Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan, David envisions floating streets, pervious pavement, planting bioswales—Keeping the Water—“living with water” rather than pushing it down and pumping it out. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina the Sisters of St. Joseph convent in New Orleans was under 8 feet of water. A year later, on a clear blue day, the building was struck by lightning. The Sisters prayed for a sign. And in walked David Waggonner with a vision. The Mirabeau Water Garden will become one of the largest urban wetlands in the country and a campus for water research and environmental education, demonstrating best practices for construction and urban water management in the city's lowest-lying and most vulnerable neighborhoods. The 25-acre parcel was donated to the City of New Orleans by the Sisters of Saint Joseph on condition that it be used to enhance and protect the neighborhood to “evoke a huge systemic shift in the way humans relate with water and land.”

A Plea for Peace: Leonard Bernstein, Richard Nixon, and the Music of the 1973 Inauguration
Grant details: TR-269730-20
Title: A Plea for Peace: Leonard Bernstein, Richard Nixon, and the Music of the 1973 Inauguration
Producer: Brandi Howell
Producer: The Kitchen Sisters
Abstract: Music and poetry were powerful headliners at the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris signaling change and new beginnings. This was not the first time the arts have reflected the mood of the country and a new administration. In January 1973, following the Christmas bombing of Vietnam, conductor Leonard Bernstein performed in an "anti-inaugural concert" protesting Richard Nixon's official inaugural concert and his escalation of the war in Vietnam. In 1973, the United States was reaching the concluding stages of our involvement in Vietnam. And while the war would soon come to an end, the weeks leading up to the second inauguration of Richard Nixon were met with some of the most intense and deadly bombing campaigns of the war. The anti-war movement was unhinged. They had marched, they protested — to seemingly no avail when it came to changing Nixon’s foreign policies. So what to do next... Leonard Bernstein, a “Keeper of Peace,” gathered an impromptu orchestra for an “anti-inaugural concert”— a concert for peace—following his belief that by creating beauty, and by sharing it with as many people as possible, artists had the power to tip the earthly balance in favor of brotherhood and peace.

At rallies women would bring their daughters up to Winona saying, ‘We want them to grow up and be like you.’ Ojibwe leader, writer, food activist, rural development economist, environmentalist, Harvard graduate, —Winona, which means first born daughter, is a force to be reckoned with. She’s the founder of the White Earth Land Recovery Project and the executive director of Honor the Earth. Most recently she was a leader at Standing Rock fighting the Dakota Access pipeline. She’s a visionary and a fighter and she’s in it for the long haul. Born in Los Angeles and raised in Oregon, Winona moved to White Earth, her father’s reservation, after she graduated from Harvard in 1982. When she first arrived, she worked as the principal of the Reservation’s high school and became active in local issues. Seven years later, she started the non profit White Earth Land Recovery Project, dedicated to restoring the local economy and food systems and preserving wild rice. Today Winona LaDuke operates a 40-acre industrial hemp farm on the White Earth Indian Reservation with the idea of creating textiles for the people and the planet — of working towards a non petroleum based future. And she’s started 8th Fire Solar, operated by Anishinaabe, manufacturing solar thermal panels. “According to Anishinaabe prophecies, we are in the time of the Seventh Fire. At this time, it is said we have a choice between a path that is well-worn and scorched, and a path that is green and unworn. If we move toward the green path, the Eighth Fire will be lit and people will come together to make a better future.”

Title: The Amish Pandemic Sewing Frolic—Keepers of Community
Producer: The Kitchen Sisters
Abstract: As the pandemic raged, PPE was scarce and the supply chains were breaking down. Every hospital was scrambling to find enough masks, gowns and face shields. A New York Times headline caught our eye: Sugarcreek, Ohio. “Abe Make a Sewing Frolic” — In Ohio The Amish Take on the Coronavirus. This isolated, centuries old, self reliant Amish community—Keepers of Community and a fast disappearing way of life—was rising to the occasion and collaborating with the world outside to fill the PPE needs of the massive Cleveland Clinic and beyond. In the attempt to record this story in Amish country in the midst of social distancing and the ever deepening pandemic, a new collaboration was born — artist Laurie Anderson, Ohio-born designer Stacy Hoover and producer Evan Jacoby all joined with The Kitchen Sisters to bring these voices to air.

Chido Govera—The Mushroom Queen of Zimbabwe
Grant details: TR-269730-20
Title: Chido Govera—The Mushroom Queen of Zimbabwe
Producer: The Kitchen Sisters
Abstract: A mushroom farmer, food activist, business entrepreneur, foster mother to more than a dozen girls—Chido Govera is a kitchen visionary in Zimbabwe—a pioneer in the cultivation of mushrooms throughout Africa and the world. Chido was orphaned at 7 when her mother died of AIDS. As a girl, who never had enough to eat, she began cultivating mushrooms when she was nine. Some people look at a mushroom and see a mushroom. Chido looked at a mushroom and saw a weapon for social change, a path out of hunger and poverty to empowerment and income for herself and other orphaned girls. The Keeper and founder of The Future of Hope Foundation, Chido has promoted mushroom cultivation as a sustainable source of food and income in impoverished regions of the world. We met Chido in Sao Paolo at FRUTO, an international gathering of chefs, farmers, activists, fishermen, Amazonian tribal women organizers, botanists and more—organized by Brazilian chef Alex Atala, famous from Netflix’s Chef’s Table. Speakers from around the world delved deep into issues of food, zero waste, the destruction of coastal waters, agriculture and climate change, the rights and foods of indigenous people of the Amazon. The conference was profound—a global eye opener.

North Beach Citizens—Keepers of Community
Grant details: TR-269730-20
Title: North Beach Citizens—Keepers of Community
Producer: The Kitchen Sisters
Abstract: Francis Ford Coppola talks about homelessness, life, friendship, neighborhood history, and his ideas about the future as he tells the remarkable story of North Beach Citizens, Keepers of Community—the volunteer organization he spearheaded twenty years ago to help grapple with the lives and needs of homeless and unhoused people living in his neighborhood in San Francisco. This month marks the 20th Anniversary of North Beach Citizens. Normally at this time of year some 400 people gather in the church basement of Saints Peter & Paul near Washington Square Park for an epic community dinner that raises the funds to keep NBC’s vital series of services available. Like everywhere, the pandemic has been hard on the unhoused and raised their numbers by some 64% in North Beach alone. The need is great. As a frontline service provider, NBC is distributing nearly 3 times more food to the community than this time last year through daily meals "to-go,” and Wednesday Community Food Pantry. As a beacon of support for the neighborhood, they ensure that people who are living close to the margins know that they are part of a caring community and connected to support that meets their individual needs. Our story takes us deep into the North Beach community with interviews with North Beach Citizens, volunteers, staff, clients—food writer and long time North Beach resident Peggy Knickerbocker, poetry and stories of Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the supporter and Guardian Angel of North Beach Citizens, and more.

Abstract: President Donald J. Trump’s promise to build a border wall between the US and Mexico and his move to deport undocumented immigrants shows what a powerful hold immigration has on the American political imagination. It isn't the first time a politician promised to build a wall against immigrants. In 1936, Colorado Governor "Big Ed" Johnson declared martial law as he attempted to close the state's border with New Mexico to prevent "immigrants" from coming to Colorado. We'll explore that historical episode and how it worked out.

Abstract: In late 1894, three sex workers were found strangled in their homes on Denver’s notorious Market Street: Lena Tapper, Marie Contassoit, and Kiku Oyama. As we investigate the mystery of their deaths, we explore how the past is echoed in the lives of sex workers today. Sex work - stigmatized and romanticized in equal measures throughout history - has always been among the rare industries where women have had the potential to make more money than men, yet they’ve seldom been able to reap the financial benefits of this disparity because of the physical and moral risks.

Abstract: Katherine McHale Slaughterback - aka Rattlesnake Kate - claimed to have killed over a hundred rattlesnakes outside Greeley, Colorado in a single day in 1925, and then fashioned a flapper dress from their skins. Though she went on to become a legend - a kind of “feminist Paul Bunyan” for Colorado - we’ll look at the real life ways she broke down gender roles as a woman in the west. To help tell this story, we talked with Neyla Pekarek, a member of the Colorado band The Lumineers, who recently wrote a folk opera about Rattlesnake Kate.

Abstract: In this time of the #metoo movement, we look back at the so-called "Naropa Poetry Wars" - a sex scandal at the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado involving Chogyam Trungpa, the poet Allen Ginsberg's spiritual teacher, and the frenzy of gossip, fingerpointing, and betrayal that divided the community after Trungpa was accused of inapprorpiate sexual behavior. This episode focuses on the experiences of women in the 1970’s, how freedom doesn’t always mean freedom for everyone, and how poets felt the need to look the other way on Trungpa’s sexual misconduct in order to maintain loyalty to the vision of the Institute.

Abstract: Drop City in Southern Colorado, one of the first communal living experiments of the twentieth century, launched the modern hippie commune movement and helped redefine notions of freedom and community for an entire generation. While Drop City failed shortly after its creation, it spawned a new commune that survives to this day -- Libre. Interweaving the stories of these two communes seeking freedom and opportunity in the West with interviews of historians and artists we explore the counterculture movement of the 1960s.

Abstract: In 1969, a trans woman asked Dr. Stanley Biber in the small Southern Colorado town of Trinidad if he’d be willing to perform sex reassignment / gender confirmation surgery. He kept his first few surgeries secret, out of fear of repercussions from the Catholic Nuns who ran his clinic. But eventually word got out and the community rallied around Biber and his patients. In this episode, we explore how Trinidad eventually became known as “The Sex Change Capital of the World.”

The Jazz Loft Project Radio Series [show prizes]
Grant details: TR-50008-08
Title: The Jazz Loft Project Radio Series
Writer: Sara Fishko
Producer: Sara Fishko
Abstract: From 1957 to 1965, the master photographer W. Eugene Smith had a studio and darkroom in a dilapidated building on 6th Avenue north of 28thstreet in Manhattan. The Jazz Loft, as it became known, had already become a favored spot for jam sessions by hundreds of jazz players of the day. During his years there, Smith became obsessed with the goings-on in the building, musical and otherwise, and he taped and photographed them with an unimaginable thoroughness, capturing thousands of hours of sound as well as tens of thousands of images. The sounds and stories that emerged from those years are the basis for The Jazz Loft Project, a ten-part radio series. Hear the whole story of the Jazz Loft years in The Jazz Loft Project Radio Series. Original air dates: 11/16/09-11/25/09

Title: Young and Restless: Youth Identity in the Arab World
Producer: Aaron Lobel
Abstract: Growing up is hard to do, and for young Arabs, it can be a nightmare. The region’s bulging youth population is facing a bleak economic future. Plus, they live in a seething cauldron of tribal, national, religious, social, and political forces that simultaneously pull east and west. It was Paul Gauguin who asked, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? Those are some of the very questions young Arabs are asking themselves, and the answers have implications far beyond the region.

Title: Overlooked and Underpaid: Arab Youth in Today's Economy
Producer: Aaron Lobel
Abstract: Sitting in limbo is where many young Arabs find themselves today. Nearly a quarter of Arabs under 30 are jobless. Long gone are the days of a guaranteed government gig, and the private sector is far from filling the gap. Today, Arab youth are searching for work and waiting for weddings. Some just want to leave the region – and its long unemployment lines – altogether. At best, unemployment and flagging Arab economies lead to a generation of bored and frustrated youth. At worst, economic conditions create a breeding ground for extremism and instability.

Abstract: A generation ago, young Arabs went to the streets to protest repressive governments. Now, they hop on the information highway – blogging and tweeting their discontent. They upload music, download protests. But this generation is up against rulers who know a thing or two about staying in power – and they are keeping the kids in check. It's an old battle on new ground – young activists fight to express themselves as Arab governments find better ways to outflank them.
