    A Story Club: Global Cultures S01 E01 - Global Diasporas w/ Robin Cohen and Steven Taylor

    A Story Club: Global Cultures is a new programme broadcasting every week from San Franciso, Dehra Dun (India), and Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean.

    Our first episode of Season 1 is on the theme "Global Diasporas".
    Are you part of a Diaspora? African, Indian, Chinese, French, Arab, Chinese, Irish, etc.?
    In this election season, questions of race, identity, nationalism, loyalty and ancestry inevitably arise.
    How can we think about Diaspora in a Global Perspective, so we can put our debates in a larger context, and work out our issues productively?
    My guests are Professor Robin Cohen from the University of Oxford (author of Global Diasporas: An Introduction (1997, with many subsequent editions and translations)
    Professor Steven Taylor from American University, author of "Exiles, Entrepreneurs, and Educators: African Americans in Ghana".

    Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom w/ Patrick Moore

    Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom w/ Patrick Moore

    LISTEN to the FULL episode 62: Patrick Moore | From Greenpeace Founder to Environmental Doomsday Critic BELOW!
    This is an excerpt of my interview with the incredibly brave, iconoclastic, free-thinking founder of Greepeace, Dr. Patrick Moore, looking at the hoax of "Carbon Pollution" and other made-up environmental "catastrophes".
    He was de-platformed from a confernce that was to be held on 19 May 2020 for daring to speak about "Fake Invisible Catastrophes". An alternative venue was then set up to allow him to speak.
    Little did any of us know that an even BIGGER Fake Invisible "Catastrophe" would be conjured up in the meanwhile: Coronavirus.
    His choice of topic, therefore, was more prophetic and ironic than any of us imagined.
