We speak with Lindsay Dyson, volunteer program manager at the Pachamama Alliance, co-founded by former economic hitman John Perkins, about their work in the Amazonian rainforest. They have received a request from Achuar elders there to work to “change the dream" in the global North. Lindsay will also discuss how Pachamama has reorganized their own work to be more shared, how that is going for them, and how it relates to the goal of changing the dream.

We air a talk by Aileen Miyoko-Smith. Aileen is the Executive Director of Green Action Japan. She has been working for 30 years against nuclear power in Japan, and her talk, which she gave in June at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, is about her work to keep shuttered Japanese nuclear power plants from starting up again.

After the Fukushima disaster began in 2011, all nuclear power plants in Japan were shut down. There were massive, unprecedented demonstrations, and many lawsuits against TEPCO and the government.
Despite these protests, the Abe government has a goal of restoring 20% of Japan's power to nuclear by the year 2030. Right now, only 1% is coming from nuclear. There are nuclear 43 plants in this small country which is located on the Ring of Fire, the seismically active circle of convergent tectonic plates in the Pacific Ocean. Only two plants are operational at this time.
Having survived the shutdown, public opinion supports keeping the nuclear plants closed. But the economy has been in a slump for decades, so public support for closing the plants weakens when people are told it will further depress the economy by making energy more expensive.

Stay tuned to learn about who's fighting back, the state of monitoring for contamination and health impacts in Japan and the US, what Aileen thinks we should be doing in the U.S., the relocation of residents including those with special needs, the role of gender in Japanese nuclear politics, threats to Japan's Peace Constitution, the new Secrecy Law, and how it is all playing out given yesterday's Japanese parliamentary elections, where the governing Liberal Democratic government of Shinzo Abe is claiming victory.

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
