WED, 2 PM:

Building Bridges plus Assorted Shorts; and Madness Radio at 2:30 on the first Wednesday of the month.

Building Bridges: Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns, and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political, and economic rights.

Building Bridges

Assorted Shorts includes a variety of weekly and daily news briefs and commentary.

Madness Radio: Voices and Visions From Outside Mental Health focuses on personal experiences of ‘madness’ and extreme states of consciousness from beyond conventional perspectives and mainstream treatments. Madness Radio features authors, advocates, and researchers on madness-related topics, including civil rights, science, policy reform, holistic health, history, and art.

Madness Radio presents voices often marginalized by other media, and takes a critical approach to mental health policy, corporate marketing, and institutional medical science, challenging listeners to a new understanding of experiences that are often stereotyped and feared, and encourages reconsideration of how to improve care and truly meet human needs. The show respects all treatment and medication choices people make, while providing an opportunity to hear outsider perspectives and overcome misinformation. Madness Radio is part of the international movement for diverse-ability rights, informed consent, and self-determination, and envisions a community development rather than medical approach to human emotional distress.
