  • The True Rights of Communities
    Thursday, January 24
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    When Thomas Linzey's clients across rural America asked why they couldn't stop industrial hog farms from devastating their communities, he could give them a legal but not a reasonable answer. So he started a legal defense fund to support communities fighting for the rights and authority they had before a century of court decisions gave corporations almost limitless siting power. This episode goes to the root of things.

    Thursday, January 31
    10:01 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Do children have standing to sue governments for severely damaging their future by ignoring the clear dangers of climate change?

We talk to OCF's founder and two young plaintiffs to find out about a struggle that could change more than we can easily imagine.

    Thursday, February 7
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    It's been nearly fifty years since a fiery young man named Denis Hayes organized a wildly ambitious new project called "Earth Day."

  • Are We Up to the Climate Challenge?
    Thursday, February 14
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    The outcome of the 2016 election looks to many like a devastating setback to national and global efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses. Our guests, 350.org founder Bill McKibben and current 350.org chairman KC Golden, see another possibility: a fossil fuel-free clean energy revolution that no one can stop.

    Godfrey Masauli captured our hearts in 2015 with his dream of flight. He left his tiny village to become Malawi's first paraglider pilot.

  • Story and Race
    Friday, January 18
    5:30 am on UEN-TV 9.1
    Seminars, rallies, academic papers, scholarly books, earnest roundtable discussions-none of them has taken us to deep and satisfying understanding of our racial differences. Can storytelling? Our guests, including the co-author of Story Bridge, help us see how that old art form can dissolve the fear and defensive blocks that get in our way.

  • A Woman Takes On An Industry
    Friday, January 11
    5:30 am on UEN-TV 9.1
    Common wisdom about the 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear accident is that we dodged a bullet. That's not the view of hundreds of nearby residents who've since developed radiation-related cancers. One of them brings us material from her in-progress documentary Meltdown, the first step of her nearly single-handed stand against the nuclear power industry.

  • Not as Divided as You Think: Quiet Cooperation on Climate
    Friday, January 4
    5:30 am on UEN-TV 9.1
    We're told we're hopelessly divided on issues of climate change, up to and including whether it actually exists. Our three guests, working everyday with business and community leaders, the clergy and national politicians of both parties, have a much different and more hopeful story: we could be on the brink of huge positive change.

  • Dying Well
    Friday, December 28
    5:30 am on UEN-TV 9.1
    Death is coming out of the closet. The maker of the new documentary Living While Dying shares her stories of the final days of four men. Then a hospice pioneer and a one-of-a-kind chaplain help us understand how profoundly the acceptance of death's inevitable place in the circle of life can enrich the days that remain.

  • Story and Youth
    Friday, December 21
    5:30 am on UEN-TV 9.1
    Some children find their voice quickly and easily. Many don't. We sample Earth Seasoned, a new film about four girls who lived a full year out in Oregon's rugged Cascade Mountains, and talk with a founder of the Heartisan Foundation, where youngsters are led to understand the stirring power of their own personal stories.

  • Traveling with Purpose
    Friday, December 14
    5:30 am on UEN-TV 9.1
    Plenty of American tourists want more than recreation and relaxation from their travels. They want to give back. That includes a pair of old friends who fell in love with Jamaica and convinced the island's largest resort chain to lodge hundreds of service volunteers every year, and a climber whose nearly-miraculous ascent of Everest spawned projects to save Nepal's poorest children. The world is their community.

  • Growing Food, Plants & People
    Friday, December 7
    5:30 am on UEN-TV 9.1
    With less than 5% of the world's population, our country houses 22% of its prisoners. Would that change if ex-convicts had dignified, fairly-paid work? Two groups that train hard-time prisoners to grow food and to start and run plant-centered businesses are changing the future for ex-convicts, and beginning to change the shameful statistics.
