This month on Trans Talk, we will feature an interview with LGBT scholar and activist Brynn Tannehill. In addition to being a retired Lt. Commander in the US Navy and a researcher at a Washington think-tank, Brynn is a frequent author for many journals and news organizations, including the Huffington Post, the AdvocateUSA TodaySalonSlate, and The New Civil Rights Movement.

Recently Brynn has been analyzing the policies and politics of the Trump Administration, the Republican and Democratic Parties, and the political and social zeitgeist we inhabit in this very strange and somewhat terrifying landscape, and she will be joining us on Trans Talk to give her analysis and perspective on where we may be headed, and how bad things could be not just for my transgender siblings out there, but the LGBT community, women, and pretty much the whole doggone planet.

We will have a new take on the transgender news of the month, and finish up the show with the community calendar update. I do hope you will be able to join us this Saturday, September 22nd at 1:00 pm on 90.1 KKFI, Kansas City Community Radio! You can also stream the program live on kkfi.org, or via various apps on your phone.

Christina Frazier tours the fascinating story of River Bluff Cave, a virgin cave discovered in Southern Missouri, that flummoxed local scientists upon discovery. After construction blasting gave way to serious investigation the site dated at over 1 million years old. The preserve of evidence yielded fossils and sediments that recorded invaluable information contributing to the study of history and climate change.

East of Eden is program exploring issues of land in the Midwest; scientific, social and political. It is produced and hosted by Christina Frazier.

Notorious and with a following, Michael Moore asks the question many ask each other these days: how did we elect such far right officials in this era? Provocatively and humorously, Moore explores mixed-feelings to outrage over the present political climate and how the situation evolved. Critical reception is positive but make up your mind if your own ticket to the theatre would be well spent in an interview with Amy Goodman over his new release Fahrenheit 11/9–ironically citing the date of Trump’s election.

Michael Moore is a filmmaker who broke into notoriety with his first feature Roger and Me, which explored the economic fallout in Flint, Michigan after automotive factories were moved to Mexico. Other well known movies include the comedy classic Canadian Bacon featuring John Candy and Bowling for Columbine, the internationally acclaimed and awarded documentary about gun violence.


This week on CounterSpin: The elite media takeaway on the nomination to the Supreme Court of arch-conservative Brett Kavanaugh—despite allegations of perjury, and an unprecedented lack of access to his work—would seem to be reflected by CNN, which ran two items on the same day: a poll showing more Americans oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation than support it, and an analysis that took his confirmation as a given. “Americans don’t want it, but it’s happening anyway; next!” seems to be corporate media’s approach to many things these days. Others take democratic dysfunction less sanguinely. We speak with Richard Kim, executive editor of The Nation magazine, about that.

Also on the show: In 1994, John Bolton declared: “There is no United Nations. There is an international community that occasionally can be led by the only real power left in the world, and that’s the United States, when it suits our interest, and when we can get others to go along.” Bolton is now national security advisor under a president who shares his ideas that international bodies only exist to the extent that the US finds them useful. You can call that straight talk, but then you also have to care what impact it has when a country declares its sovereignty to be the only sovereignty that matters on the planet. Bolton’s target of the moment is the International Criminal Court. We talk about what his most recent threats against the ICC mean with Jamil Dakwar, director of the human rights program at the ACLU.
