Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller (Series)

Produced by KALW

Most recent piece in this series:

89: Is 'Girl Power' Creating a Mental Health Crisis? Rachel Simmons, author "Enough As She Is"

From KALW | Part of the Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller series | 54:00

Rachel_simmons_small For many girls today, the relentless pursuit of accomplishment is fueled by harsh self-criticism and an acute fear of failure. Rachel Simmons has been researching young women for two decades, and her research plainly shows that girl competence does not equal girl confidence—nor does it equal happiness, resilience, or self-worth. As an educator and author of "Enough As She Is: How to Help Girls Move Beyond Impossible Standards of Success to Live Healthy, Happy and Fulfilling Lives", Rachel teaches girls and women skills to build their resilience, amplify their voices, and own their courage so that they—and their relationships—live with integrity and health.

The Song of Songs

From WQXR | 58:29

"I am sick with love." These five words say so much. Love is like a sickness and it affects the entire human race.

The Song of Songs
From
WQXR

Wqxr_logo_nofreq_small

This line comes from the Hebrew Bible as part of a collection of poems known as "the Song of Songs." And they are words that still speak to us today. The Song of Songs confounds and tantalizes the faithful. It seduces composers, inspiring works by Monteverdi, Bach and contemporary composer Nico Muhly. In fact, there are dozens of musical settings, each dancing between earthly pleasures and heavenly aspirations.

Stage and screen star Jessica Hecht ("Fiddler on the Roof," "Breaking Bad," Dan in Real Life," "Sideways") hosts "The Bible’s Great Romance: The Song of Songs," a one-hour special of this sensuous verse married with choral music.

Grand Canyon for Sale

From Guy Rathbun | Part of the IdeaSphere: A Platform for Today's Voices series | 29:00

Stephen_nash_small

In his work, Nash describes threats posed by climate change as well as the federal government itself. Large swaths of public land are being sold to private organizations and various economic interests.

In order to tell the story, Nash has interviewed a wide array of people involved in various ways with the national parks: from current and former park supervisors, cattle ranchers, scientists, rangers, and volunteers. He also adds a very personal touch in his story telling by taking his readers to ridge tops and down into deep canyons in order to emphasize and document his findings.

But Nash isn’t just bemoaning the state of our national treasures. His book also shows what we can do to confront the political activities that threaten our natural heritage.

Stephen Nash is the author of two award winning books on science and the environment. His reporting has appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, and New Republic, among others, and he is a Visiting Research Scholar at the University of Richmond.

The full title of his book is, Grand Canyon for Sale: Public Lands Versus Private Interests in the Era of Climate Change
