    A Long Road to Peace Activism

    A Long Road to Peace Activism

    Podcast host Marc Eliot Stein explores his own past to uncover why he once believed in American exceptionalism and thought it would be a good idea to work for weapons manufacturers, Wall Street banks and media brands like Foreign Policy magazine - all steps on the path to the realization that he doesn't need to support the USA war machine to make a living. A surprising personal tale and a plea for wisdom by our regular podcast host - Part one of two. Musical excerpt: "Dead and Gone" by T.I. and Justin Timberlake

    Just Human: A Conversation With Jamelah Vincent

    Just Human: A Conversation With Jamelah Vincent

    Two and a half months of brutal and senseless slaughter in Gaza have shattered souls all over the world. This month’s episode of the World BEYOND War podcast is a free-flowing, no-agenda conversation between Jamelah Vincent, a Yemeni-American in Michigan, and Marc Eliot Stein, our Jewish-American host in New York. We talk about social media, cognitive dissonance, rampant ethnic prejudices in our own troubled country, Martin Luther King, how islamophobia and antisemitism are exploited by war profiteers, and finally about our mutual lost friend Judih Weinstein Haggai, who stands today as a symbol of peace-loving humanity destroyed by inhumane war. Music excerpt: "Blackbird" by Sarah McLachlan.
