Next time on State of Belief Radio, How We Learn to be Brave: Decisive Moments in Life and Faith - the just-published new book from the Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Episcopal Bishop of the Diocese of Washington, DC. Being brave is not a singular occurrence; it’s a journey that we can choose to undertake every day, she writes; and often it’s not the most visible acts that can have the most lasting effects. Also, Darcy Hirsch, our brand-new Senior Director of Policy and Advocacy at Interfaith Alliance. We’ll talk about our new resource for combating antisemitism, and get a sense of what Darcy considers to be important priorities in the months ahead.
Off Kilter TCF S416 E58 05 - 26 - 23 V2
As Off-Kilter’s ongoing series continues, digging into why in the famous words of Audre Lorde, “self-care is political warfare,” we’re zooming out for this next episode to explore the goal of ending poverty in the United States—and the broader work of economic and social liberation—as self-care for the larger collective organism of which we are all part. In this spirit, as Rebecca describes in this episode, she often thinks about advocates and activists for economic and social liberation as healers—healers of a collective organism that today is very sick—with one huge glaring symptom of that illness being widespread, needless poverty in the midst of plenty. Of course healers rely on good diagnostic tools—and this kind of “social justice advocacy as collective healing” framework can then help us understand something like a measure of poverty as a diagnostic tool—a tool that’s only as good at diagnosing social illness as what it measures and how it’s designed. So to zoom in on what America’s broken official poverty measure has to do with self-care, Rebecca brought back three thought leaders who are deep experts in poverty measurement, all of whom have been working for years to bring attention to how outdated and flawed our leading diagnostic tool on this front (a.k.a. America’s Official Poverty Measure) is—and the importance of rethinking how we measure poverty in the United States. if we are serious about meaningfully eliminating it versus just putting a band-aid on a still-very-sick economy. Shawn Fremstad is the director of law and political economy as well as a senior adviser at the Center for Economic Policy Research. Shailly Barnes is the policy director for the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice. David Brady is a professor of public policy at the University of California Riverside, where he directs the Blum Initiative on Global and Regional Poverty; he’s also a fellow with the WZB Berlin Social Science Center.

Dodgers LGBTQ reversal, Picnic Racism, More Raped Catholics Karel Cast Podcast #209
Dodgers LGBTQ reversal, Picnic Racism, More Raped Catholics Karel Cast Podcast #209 1900 more raped children at the hands of Catholics, the same group that was upset enough to get the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence disinvited to the Dodger game. Now, the Dodgers have rescinded the rescintion as we still allow the Catholics to go tax free while they rape our children. Also, are you a Picnic Racist? Well if you use the term you are. The fact is White Supremacy rears its head in everyday life, particularly if you're White. And, the reasons for not having billionaires are many, and are exemplified by the fact Jay Z and Beyonce can write a check for $200m for a house.

Leslie Marshall - Florida School District Sued for Book Bans; Iowa Votes to Rescind Child Labor Laws
Leslie begins today's show with her 'Ripped from the Headlines' news segment. Here are the stories that she gave her take on: 1. ASSOCIATED PRESS: "‘No corner of the global economy will be spared’: How America’s first-ever default would tank the entire world" 2. AUDIO: Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen, a Democrat, outlines Republican Carelessness and Hypocrisy when it comes to the debt ceiling 3. AXIOS: "Nearly 2 billion at risk from "unprecedented" climate conditions" 4. AXIOS: "U.S. lawmakers OK'd more pro-gun bills than safety measures since Uvalde" 5. AXIOS: "Surgeon general issues advisory about social media risks for kids" For the remainder of the show, Leslie is joined by Jessica Levinson, Professor at Loyola Law School, Legal Contributor for CBS News, Columnist for MSNBC, and host of the 'Passing Judgment podcast.' The two discuss two important legal stories that affect America's children. The first story is about Penguin Random House, advocates and authors suing a Florida school district over book bans. The subject of the second story is legislation that was recently passed by Iowa's Republican legislature that would rollback certain child labor laws in the state. The Department of Labor is pushing back on the legislation though, which will likely setup a court battle between the two. Jessica's Twitter handle is @LevinsonJessica and you can find her podcast, 'Passing Judgment,' by searching for it at the webpage: Podcasts.Apple.com.
