Target Pride Busts, The Dumbest States and Tina Turner Karel Cast Podcast #210
Target Pride Busts, The Dumbest States and Tina Turner Karel Cast Podcast #210 Target proves they are not truly and ally as the cave to bigots and either remove or move their Pride clothing. Real allies stand by those they choose to advocate for not give in to bigots and hatred to save or make a buck. And we lost Tina Turner, and we can learn many important lessons from her life. And Wallethub have ranked states by education level, most educated to least, and the conclusion proves why Red states are an ignorant burden.

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 Now, the Dodgers have rescinded the rescintion as we still allow the Catholics to go tax free while they rape our children.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.

Code Wack - The shocking influence of skin color on health care
Why do Black women have a 5-year mortality risk from endometrial cancer that’s 90 percent higher than White women? Is it about race or racism – and what can we do about it? To find out, we spoke with Dr. Diljeet Singh, a women’s health advocate and integrative gynecologic oncologist who has practiced for nearly 25 years. She’s also the vice president of Physicians for a National Health Program, which advocates for Medicare for All.

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.

Florida Pride Must Go On Plus Use the 14th Karel Podcast #208
Florida Pride Must Go On Plus Use the 14th Karel Podcast #208 Tampa and other Florida cities are cancelling their pride events because of draconian drag laws, but the people that started pride would not agree with that decision, here’s why; plus the debt ceiling arguments are ridiculous. Just go back to the owner’s manual, the 14th Amendment. And anniversaries are important to humans, and I’m going to share of few of my recent ones and why, including the passing of Andrew Lee Howard 22 years ago.

A Turning Point - Clown Hall
Donald Trump remains a serious threat, but it is increasingly hard to take him seriously, and that's a real problem. Here’s a serial philanderer, convicted sexual assaulter, desperate narcissist, authoritarian despot, and pathological liar, but he’s a declared Republican candidate for president, and holds the base in his thrall, leaving no room for a sane challenger (and no, I do not put Ron DeSantis in that category.) Here’s a brief essay on the subject. I hope you’ll listen.

Off Kilter TCF S415 E57 05 - 23 - 23 V3
This week Rebecca sat down with Kim Knackstedt, a senior fellow at The Century Foundation, where she serves as director of the Disability Economic Justice Team and director of the Disability Economic Justice Collaborative, both of which launched a little over one year ago in April 2022. Before coming to TCF, Kim served as the first-ever director of disability policy for the White House Domestic Policy Council for the first year of the Biden presidency. They had a far-ranging conversation about what it looks like to apply disability as a lens across all economic and social policy making in the United States; the story behind the Disability Economic Justice Collaborative, going behind the scenes on the work discussed in the Collaborative’s one-year anniversary event, which aired on Off-Kilter earlier this month; and the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency and what it means for disabled people in the United States. And continuing with the “self-care is political warfare” throughline from all of this spring’s episodes for the podcast, they also talked about Kim’s ongoing process of detoxing from the “destroy yourself for the work” culture of the White House and Capitol Hill; how she’s been rediscovering self-care in her own life as a leader within the disability community who also lives with chronic illness; and more.
State Of Belief 05-20-2023
Next time on State of Belief Radio, award-winning CNN race, religion and politics journalist John Blake. His intensely personal new memoir is titled, More Than I Imagined: What a Black Man Discovered About the White Mother He Never Knew. It's a spellbinding story, told with incredible honesty and humility. There are no easy answers or simple lessons here. But there are concrete examples of how even lifelong exposure to racist beliefs and bigotry can be overcome with genuine human connection. Also, Interfaith Alliance Director of Field and Organizing Maureen O’Leary will be with us to talk about the Faith for Pride 2023 Initiative, with events across the country highlighting inclusive and affirming religion.
