Programming Highlights

  • Today at 1pm with Michael Benner - Binaural Beats & Brain Entrainment

    Join us for this Tuesday's "Ageless Wisdom Show" on KPFK-90.7 FM at 1PM (PT) for all of Southern California and live streaming for the world as our guest, Karen Newell, describes "Sacred Acoustics." The frequencies of the energy radiated by our brains are higher when we are stimulated and lower when we feel safe and relaxed. Oddly, these brainwave frequencies synchronize with any regular stimulus whether highway guard rail posts moving past us as we drive, the pulsations of a fire, strobe lights or repetitive sounds. This is called brain entrainment.

  • "Worked to Death": IATSE Film Crew on "Rust" Walked Off Set to Protest Conditions Before Shooting

    We look at how the tragic shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of "Rust" last Thursday on a set in New Mexico is drawing attention to cost-cutting decisions and overall safety in the film industry. Yahoo News is reporting the gun that killed Hutchins had been used by crew members just hours beforehand for live-ammunition target practice. The film's lead actor and producer Alec Baldwin later shot the revolver after he was reportedly handed it by the first assistant director, David Halls, who told him it was a "cold gun," meaning it was not loaded with live ammunition. Halls was fired in 2019 from his position as assistant director on the movie "Freedom's Path" after a gun "unexpectedly discharged" and injured a crew member. All of this happened after some of the unionized IATSE below-the-line crew members had walked off the set of "Rust" earlier on the day of the shooting to protest their housing, payment and working conditions. New Mexico is a "right to work" state, so producers were able to hire nonunion replacements and continue working on the film. We speak with Dutch Merrick, prop master and armorer for over 25 years and past president of IATSE Local 44 Property Craftspersons, Hollywood, who notes, "Hollywood handles firearms every single day," and calls the process "carefully regulated." Despite safety protocol and expertise, he says, Hollywood crews are getting "worked to death" with 80- to 100-hour workweeks, which he suggests played into the accidental shooting.

  • "Devastation and Anger" in Sudan as Military Coup Halts Country's Democratic Transition

    We look at the attempted coup in Sudan, where the military, led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan overthrew the transitional government Monday, detaining Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and other political leaders. As protesters flooded the streets of Khartoum demanding the government be handed back to the civilians, Sudanese soldiers opened fire on them, killing at least 10 and wounding scores more. The United Nations has condemned the coup, and the United States has suspended a $700 million emergency aid package for Sudan. "No one is in support of this coup," says Walaa Salah, human rights lawyer and activist who attended the ongoing protests and spoke with Democracy Now! by phone from Khartoum on Tuesday. "Military rule is a regression." We also speak with Isma'il Kushkush, a Sudanese American journalist who lived in and reported from Khartoum for years, who says, for most Sudanese citizens, "the important thing is to see the transfer into a full civilian government, to see elections."

  • California is the second most vegan state for 2021

    With its reputation for liberalism and support for progressive causes, it’s no surprise that California is one of the most vegan states in the US. The surprising thing is that it’s not #1 on the list - Nevada is.

  • Trump Didn't Try to 'Subvert Results', He Tried to STEAL the 2020 Election!: 'BradCast' 10/7/2021

    In January, we reported on "How Trump Attempted to Use DoJ to Steal the Election". Why do our nation's corporate media outlets still have so much difficulty reporting it as such, despite the growing mountain of evidence on the attempted theft of a Presidential election by a sitting U.S. President?
