Police Policies and Black Lives Matter (Seg 1) A Blind Eye to Torture (Seg 2)
This weeks show:
Summary: This program is about some of the consequences of that small pocket size electronic device which, as of January, 2017, 95% of adult Americans own and carry. (www.pewinternet.org/fact-sheet/mobile) This device is commonly called a cell phone.
In May, 2017, estimates indicate the average American over age 18 spends 2 hours, 51 minutes on their cell phone every day. (https://hackernoon.com/how-much-time-do-people-spend-on-their-mobile-phones-in-2017-e5f90a0b10a6).
Dr. Dan Gottlieb, our guest on this edition of Radio Curious, is a clinical psychologist, author and the host of Voices in the Family (https://whyy.org/programs/voices-in-the-family/) aired regularly on WHYY in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He provides clinical therapy to people who suffer from feelings of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. This condition is commonly known as anxiety and appears to be an unanticipated consequence of cell phone usage.
I met with Dr. Dan, as he is often called, in the studios of WHYY in Philadelphia on October 16, 2017. We began our conversation when I asked him about the consequences of current cell phone usage especially by young people.
The books Dr. Dan Gottlieb recommends are: “The Black Widow,” by Daniel Silva, and “What Happened,” by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Whiskey: Scotch, Irish, Absinthe and Moonshine, among others, are the topics of this edition of Radio Curious. Our guest is Crispin Cain, an artisan liqueur maker, distiller and co-owner of Greenway Distillers and American Craft Whiskey based in Redwood Valley, California, about 10 miles north of the Radio Curious studios. We met in his office of at the Greenway distillery on October 27, 2017, and began our visit sampling some his most tasty products. After a few sips I turned on the recorder and asked Crispin Cain to describe the distilling process.
Crispin Cain’s website is: http://www.greenwaydistillers.com.
The book Crispin Cain recommends is “Writings from Ancient Egypt,” by Toby Wilkinson.
