Vaping: What You Don't Know Can Kill You - Hour Special

From KRCB-FM "Radio 91" | Part of the Vaping: What You Don't Know Can Kill You series | 01:05:51

We investigate the dangers of vaping, while listening to the voices of high school administrators, health professionals and students. One thing is clear: most young people are unaware of the short and long-term health impacts of vaping.

Vape-media-defense-gov-small_small In the summer of 2019, troubling reports circulated throughout the country that people were being injured and dying after vaping, usually connected to black market THC products. More information surfaced in November of 2019 that a key cause of these injuires and deaths was a substance called Vitamin E acetate.
But the timing of this epidemic also turned a spotlight on the broader question of how vaping companies, aided by Big Tobacco, were trying to hook a new generation on nicotine, by making vaping seem like a safe, candy-coated alternative to cigarettes. We now know that this isn't the case. Vaping nicotine is dangerous for young people, and we learn why in talking with health officials, high school administrators and kids themselves. 
Program is updated at the end before credits with a postscript about new vaping regulations that occurred "early in 2020."

A Conversation with Stacey Abrams

From KRCB-FM "Radio 91" | 59:00

Northern California Public Media's Adia White interviews Stacey Abrams at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, Santa Rosa, California, May 20, 2019.


Stacey Abrams was the first black woman to be nominated by a major party to run for governor.  She narrowly lost that race in Georgia last year but received more votes than any other Democrat who has run statewide there. Abrams writes about daring to dream big and following those ambitions to fruition in her book, "Lead From the Outside."  KRCB's Adia White interviewed Abrams about her book on stage at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa on May 20, 2019.

2020-06-12 Will Climate Matter in the Election?

With America in turmoil amid protests and a pandemic, is anyone still thinking about climate in this November’s election?

“There is a climate voter right now,” says Jeff Nesbit, Executive Director of Climate Nexus. “Our polls have shown it, lots of other polls have shown it, even now in the middle of this pandemic and what's going on in the streets.”

Nesbit is optimistic that voters who list climate as among their top issues will come out in November. He’s also encouraged by polling in the wake of the pandemic that shows a residual trust in experts that cuts across all party lines.

“There is a real trust in experts because [voters] know that those experts are responsible for saving our lives,” he explains. “That carries over into the climate issue that if we need to be prepared for a pandemic or something right now, well, climate change is just over the horizon we should trust the experts there as well.”

A bigger problem may be that no matter how many people claim that climate matters to them in the election, a huge number of them don’t actually vote.

“10.1 million already-registered-to-vote environmentalists stayed home for the 2016 presidential election,” notes Nathaniel Stinnett, Founder and Executive Director of the Environmental Voter Project, an organization dedicated to changing nonvoting environmentalists into voters.

“These people care so deeply about climate and the environment that it's their number one priority,” says Stinnett, “and if we’re able to actually get them out to the polls that can have an enormous impact politically, but also on policymaking.”

Another constituency with a potentially big impact is the Latino community. In 2016 about half of the 27 million eligible Latino voters did not vote. But Vanessa Hauc, a journalist at Telemundo, expects to see significant Latino turnout this fall.

“It has to do with dignity and respect for a community that is here that is working that is giving their best to this country, says Hauc, “and there is not a minimum of respect for what we do.”

Hauc leads the environmental investigation unit at Telemundo and believes Latinos put high priority on climate issues as well. “We have the special relationship with the environment it’s in our DNA,” she says.”[I] try to bring those stories home to my community to make sure that they have the knowledge, the tools, and the information to live a sustainable life.”

The music is served "shaken, not stirred" every week on The Retro Cocktail Hour.  Here you'll find vintage recordings from the dawn of the Hi-Fi Era - imaginative, light-hearted (and sometimes light headed) pop stylings designed to underscore everything from the backyard barbecue to the high-tech bachelor pad.

Among the artists featured on The Retro Cocktail Hour are lounge legends like Frank Sinatra and Juan Esquivel; tiki gods Martin Denny and Les Baxter; swinging cocktail combos featuring The Three Suns and Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanzo; and mambo king Perez Prado.  The series also spotlights up and coming lounge/exotica artists, including Waitiki, Ixtahuele, the Tikiyaki Orchestra, Big Kahuna and the Copa Cat Pack, the Voodoo Organist and many more.


Each hour of the show is discrete and can be used in a variety of ways - a weekly two-hour show; a weekly one-hour show; or twice weekly one-hour shows.  Custom promos and fundraising pitches available on request.

307_nr1_5695_small They say love means never having to say you’re sorry. But what if that popular aphorism from the 1960’s is wrong and that love precisely means having to say you’re sorry? Can an apology release the trauma, grief, rage and disfigurement arising from past abuse? But what if the perpetrator does not apologize? Can you still resolve or reconcile the trauma and hurt? How? These are some of the agonizing questions that the artist, playwright, performer and activist Eve Ensler, now known as V chose to face to resolve her own relationship with her abusive late father. She did it by writing a book, The Apology. In writing it, she tried to imagine being her father. Who was he? What allowed him to do such terrible harms? Could she free herself from this prison of the past? Could she free both of them?

Marie Miller

From Art of the Song | Part of the Art of the Song series | 59:00


Our guest this week on Art of the Song is singer, songwriter, and mandolinist, Marie Miller. A native of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, she first earned national acclaim with her 2013 single, You Are Not Alone. She has since toured with or opened for The Backstreet Boys, Sara Evans, Andy Grammar, Five For Fighting, and Kris Allen. In September 2015, Marie Miller performed for Pope Francis in front of 750,000 attendees in Philadelphia. In 2018, she took a bold step. She left the record label where she’d spent the previous 10 years and began a path as an independent artist. We spoke with Marie remotely about her album Little Dreams.

In the second half of the show for the Creativity Corner, we’ll hear from John Dillon with a daily practice that might be helpful during these stay-at-home times.
