The Marc Steiner Show

1/31/08 interesting articles this week…

Check out the first paragraph of this article:

 FINALLY SOME GOOD NEWS—someone is going to help me play music with whales instead of warning me that it’s against the law. According to the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act, all “harassment” of marine mammals is illegal, including my idea of playing live music to them just to see what happens. But there are still places beyond the grip of the law.

Read it all here, and hear Marc interview the author, David Rothenberg, at about 1:30 today.  For more of David’s writing, check out this piece on www.terrain.org.

Before that, after the news at 1pm, join us to discuss genetically modified food.  Seems like it was something that was really in the public eye, along with lots of outrage and uncertainty, a few years ago, but all of that has subsided a bit, here in the US, at least.  It certainly didn’t go away, though, as more genetically modified crops are being grown worldwide than ever, and the highest percentage of any country is right here in the States.  Yes, if you’re not sure, our food supply is flush with genetically modiefied ingredients.  We’ll discuss the details, focusing on the company at the center of it all, Monsanto, with Brian Hindo.  He wrote the article Monsanto: Winning the Ground War in Business Week.

Every Thursday from 1-2pm for the past few weeks, we’ve been featuring interviews with the authors of articles that we’ve come upon and found particularly interesting.  If you’ve caught any of these segments, what do you think?  Would you like to see this continue as a regular, weekly feature on the show?  Also, comment here with suggestions for articles that you’ve read and would like for us to consider featuring!

  1. Since there is ZERO info here, or anywhere else, about the cancellation of the this show, I will use this space to comment.
    WYPR without The Marc Steiner Show is not WYPR. Good luck next pledge drive. THIS subscriber is shocked and angry.
    You’ve made a BIG mistake.

  2. The Marc Steiner Show has been canceled?! It was the ONLY reason I even listened to WYPR! I spend all day on the road as part of my job and Marc’s program was the highlight of my work day!

    You can add me to your list of people who won’t contribute next pledge drive. In fact, I won’t be listening to your station ever again. Thanks for the memories.

    WTMD here I come!
