  • Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn: Alone Together Duets

    wbgo.org Wednesday, 10 March 2021 01:03:13

    NPR / YouTube It's been one year since we first "locked down" together, and yet here we are: back with another Alone Together Duets video. These two stars are no strangers to performing onstage together. Early in the crisis, Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn continued to warm hearts and make beautiful music together from their home in Nashville. Their "Banjo House Lockdown" series can almost be viewed as a time capsule of what we all can relate to: two adults (often in their pajamas) trying to work from home without being interrupted by their adorable kids. "Life without other people is fine, but life without banjos would be intolerable," reads a credo on their Facebook page. For our video, Washburn plays the largest banjo we've ever seen (turns out, it's really an upright bass masquerading as a banjo). The couple dusts off an old-timey, bluegrass ditty, "My Home's Across the Blue Ridge Mountains," and refurbishes it into a blues – giving the public domain number a healthy injection of

  • Inside The Fight For The Right To Die: Logistical And Ethical Challenges

    wbgo.org Wednesday, 10 March 2021 00:58:00

    When you have a dog or a cat that is in pain and near the end of life, you have the option of putting down your beloved pet. Some people who fear loss of function — mental or physical — would like a similar option for ending their own lives in a safe, peaceful and legal manner. Journalist Katie Engelhart explores the "right to die" movement in her new book, The Inevitable. Engelhart says individuals seeking death on their own terms sometimes resort to ordering lethal veterinary drugs from Mexico or China. "When I started reporting the book, I heard this phrase over and over ... 'I'd rather die like a dog,' " Engelhart says. "A lot of people spoke to me about euthanizing beloved pets in their past. They talked about [euthanizing their pets] as being acts of mercy and acts of love — and all they wanted was the same option for themselves." Engelhart's book focuses on six individuals — two doctors and four patients — who represent different aspects of the debate about physician-assisted

  • 'Phantom Tollbooth' Author Norton Juster Dies At 91

    wbgo.org Wednesday, 10 March 2021 00:12:00

    A large dog with an alarm clock for a body (a "watchdog," if you will). A giant bee who can apparently spell any word. A figure with twelve faces, one for each emotion. These are just some of the fantastic characters author Norton Juster created in his beloved 1961 children's book The Phantom Tollbooth . Juster died yesterday, in his home in Northampton MA. He was 91 years old. The cause was complications from a recent stroke, according to a statement from his daughter, Emily Juster. The Phantom Tollbooth told the story of Milo, a young boy utterly bored and disaffected with the world around him. Until a mysterious and magical tollbooth shows up and he drives his toy car through, and it leads him on an unexpected adventure — one that encourages Milo's curiosity and inspires a love of learning new things. "I had been an odd child," Juster wrote in a 2011 essay for NPR marking the book's 50th anniversary . "Quiet, introverted and moody. When I grew up, I still felt like that puzzled kid:

  • Prosecutors: Oath Keepers' Founder Was In Direct Contact With Capitol Rioters

    wbgo.org Wednesday, 10 March 2021 00:10:00

    Federal prosecutors allege that the founder and leader of the Oath Keepers paramilitary group, Stewart Rhodes, was in direct communication in the run-up to Jan. 6 and then during the insurrection itself with militia members who stormed the Capitol. The allegations emerged in court papers filed late Monday by the government in the case against Thomas Caldwell, an alleged Oath Keeper who along with eight other people is facing conspiracy and other federal charges in connection with Jan. 6. In the new filing, prosecutors allege that Rhodes was in a group chat called "DC OP: Jan 6 21" on the encrypted messaging platform Signal. Two of Caldwell's co-defendants, Kelly Meggs and Jessica Watkins, as well as regional Oath Keeper leaders from states across the country were also in the chat. Rhodes, who is identified in the document as Person One, founded the anti-government Oath Keepers in 2009. He has not been charged in connection with the insurrection, but the latest government filing shows

  • States Try To Push Out Billions Of Emergency Rental Aid To Families

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 23:30:00

    If there's one thing tenants and landlords can agree on during this pandemic it's that emergency rental assistance is sorely needed. Millions of Americans have been unable to pay their rent for months, and landlords — who have their own bills to pay — are also hurting. By some estimates, tenants are already more than $50 billion in arrears . To help keep these families housed, Congress approved $25 billion in emergency rental assistance in December and is on the verge of approving more than $20 billion in additional aid as part of the next COVID-19 relief package. "We think really this is a positive step in the right direction for our landlords and our renters," says Tammy Esponge, an executive with the Apartment Association of Greater New Orleans and Louisiana. She recently surveyed her group's members, who reported they had at least a million dollars in unpaid rent over the past year. "We asked, 'How long has someone not paid?' You heard anywheres from three to twelve months they

  • Man Sentenced In 2016 Ghost Ship Warehouse Fire In Oakland, Calif., That Killed 36

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 23:13:00

    A man who operated a warehouse-turned-artist collective in Oakland, Calif., that caught fire in 2016, killing 36 people, has been sentenced to 12 years in prison. But with credit for time served and good behavior, Derick Almena is expected to serve just 18 months at home wearing an ankle monitor. Almena was the primary leaseholder for the Bay Area space known as the Ghost Ship, which officials found had no smoke detectors or sprinklers and contained numerous extension cords and large quantities of flammable materials. "I know that no family member will find this in any way acceptable, and I accept that responsibility," Alameda County Superior Court Judge Trina Thompson said at the sentencing. "I wish I could in the stroke of a pen take away your deep loss and your sadness." On Dec. 2, 2016, during an electronic music event at the warehouse — which doubled as both a performance space and residence for artists — the building caught fire, trapping people on an illegally constructed second

  • KCRW Presents Lockdown Listening: Maral

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 23:00:00

    Maral creates dense, distorted and wildly textured club music with a darkly psychedelic edge. Drawing on the field recordings and folk music of her Iranian heritage, Maral produces mirrored-reality music that recalls experimental artists like Sussan Deyhim and the depth-charge dub of Lee "Scratch" Perry. Maral's debut cassette, 2019's Mahur Club , served as a statement of intent for the hybrid music she calls "folk club." Her latest album, Push , features Perry, as well as Crass co-founder Penny Rimbaud. She also hosts the show Time Away on dublab. For the Lockdown Listening series, Maral spins her greatest influences, ranging from Iranian classical vocal music to Nico's rock-oriented solo work. Like everyone else, this year has been a challenge, good and bad. Getting to work from home has opened up a lot of new possibilities. I got to move closer to the mountains in Los Angeles, which has given me a chance to have some solitude and time to reflect on how we exist in the world. I think

  • Postal Service Delivered Vast Majority Of Mail Ballots On Time, Report Finds

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 22:41:00

    As Americans continue to complain of late-arriving bills, birthday cards and other deliveries, there has been one bright spot in the U.S. Postal Service's performance in recent months: the 2020 election. The vast majority of mail-in ballots sent during the election arrived on time, according to a report by the Postal Service's inspector general. The report says the Postal Service processed almost 134 million pieces of election mail — ballots and voter registration materials — sent to and by voters from Sept. 1 through Nov. 3. Of that, 93.8% was delivered on time to meet the agency's service standard for first class mail of two to five days. That's an increase of 11% from the 2018 midterm elections. It's also, the inspector general noted, 5.6% better than on-time delivery rates for all first class mail, a standard the Postal Service has not met for five years. The Post Office's goal for on-time delivery of first class mail is 96%. Mail advertisements for candidates and issues fared

  • George Floyd Case: Jury Selection Begins In Derek Chauvin Trial

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 22:12:00

    Jury selection in the highly anticipated trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin began in district court on Tuesday, even as the judge in the case awaits higher courts' rulings that could halt the proceedings. Chauvin faces charges in the killing of George Floyd last Memorial Day. The trial has gotten off to a tentative start, with both the prosecution and the defense filing appeals after a higher court ruled on Friday that Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill should reconsider his original decision to dismiss a third-degree murder charge against the former Minneapolis police officer. At times during Tuesday morning's proceedings, Cahill paused to let attorneys check their phones for possible word of rulings from either the state appeals court or the Minnesota Supreme Court. The first panel of potential jurors entered the courtroom around 9 a.m. local time. After Cahill introduced the trial participants, most of the panel left, and the judge administered an oath to a

  • The Victims, Rather Than The Killer, Are At The Center Of 'Last Call'

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 21:53:00

    Right from the beginning, Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York by Elon Green reads like the hardboiled true crime book that it is. "John Doe" is the opening chapter's title, and on its first page readers are already treated to the stranger-than-fiction language of real people finding themselves in the middle of a horror show they never signed up for. A maintenance worker, trained years earlier as an emergency medical technician, discovered eight very heavy bags in a green barrel at a rest area in Lancaster County, Penn., on May 5, 1991. When he finally managed to open one of them, he couldn't quite tell what it was: "It looked like a loaf of bread," he said. "But then I saw freckles." The bagged limbs turned out to be a man named Peter Stickney Anderson, a semi-closeted gay man, the first of the known victims — all gay men, all of whom were in or around a small circle of gay bars in Manhattan — who would, within the next few years, become linked due to

  • Study: NJ Residents Have Grown Less Vigilant About Coronavirus-Slowing Behaviors

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 20:39:44

    New Jerseyans are following public health guidelines less vigilantly now than when the coronavirus pandemic began last spring though there was an uptick in adherence to public health advice during the winter surge, according to a study done by researchers at Rutgers University and other universities. Researchers said a more relaxed attitude toward behaviors that slow the spread of COVID-19 could come at a cost. Even though a growing number of people are getting vaccinated, new and more virulent strains of the virus have emerged and could lead to another spike in infections. “We’re still hoping that people won’t relax too much, because we’re still not out of the woods,” said Katherine Ognyanova, a Rutgers University communication professor and the study’s lead author. “Hopefully, people will stay a little bit more careful for just a little bit longer.” The study was done by the COVID States Project, a group of researchers studying the pandemic in the U.S. Since last April, the group has

  • Workers Are Moving First, Asking Questions Later. What Happens When Offices Reopen?

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 19:28:00

    Kate Ray and her husband, David, had just moved into a one-bedroom apartment in downtown Denver last March. "It was brilliant for about two days," she recalls. The high-rise building offered floor-to-ceiling windows, a gorgeous roof deck and an outdoor pool. Then the pandemic arrived, and their jobs went remote. "The pool closed within like 48 hours of us moving in," says Ray, 34. "The gym closed. All of the amenities closed." In November, sewage water started flowing into their apartment from the unit above. That made life even more unpleasant, but it had an upside: They were allowed to break their lease. With the freedom to move, they quickly bought a house — sight unseen — just outside Duluth, Minn., where Ray, who was now pregnant, has family. They told their employers at first the move was temporary – just through her maternity leave. They didn't mention that they had bought a home in Minnesota. "I think we both had fear of what that would mean for our employment conditions," she

  • Fleet Foxes: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 19:22:00

    The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space. "I'm Robin Pecknold from Fleet Foxes . Thank you so much for asking me to find the tiniest desk I could, and sing unadorned for the first time in too long." With his guitar and that unadorned voice, Robin Pecknold performs four songs from Fleet Foxes' 2020 album, Shore. It's an album that pays homage to some of the greats that we've lost — some more recently, including David Berman and Richard Swift , and some long gone but still influential, like Elliott Smith , Curtis Mayfield , Jimi Hendrix and Judee Sill . Robin wrote the songs while driving in the Catskills and (as you hear on "Going-to-the-Sun Road") Montana, a place that feels like home. It's been a dozen years since Robin Pecknold's first, self-titled Fleet Foxes

  • In Hospitals Across Africa, A Lack Of Post-Abortion Care

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 18:41:00

    Some of Onikepe Owolabi's most vivid memories of medical school in her native Nigeria are of the teenage girls she saw in the emergency room of a rural hospital with complications from an unsafe abortion — painful infections that, if left untreated, can lead to permanent disability or even death. Each time, Owolabi, now a senior research scientist with the Guttmacher Institute , a nonprofit reproductive rights organization in the U.S. that supports abortion rights, assisted doctors in promptly providing the girls with a group of essential obstetric services known collectively as "post-abortion care," or PAC. Abortion is illegal in Nigeria except to save a woman's life and carries a heavy jail sentence for both the provider and the patient. But post-abortion care is a form of emergency medicine that all countries have pledged to provide to women with complications of a miscarriage or an induced abortion, irrespective of the legal status of the latter. And many do so with the technical

  • A Small Village Takes On Big Oil In 'How Beautiful We Were'

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 18:00:00

    A madman commits one of the first acts of rebellion in Imbolo Mbue's vast second novel. In the village of Kosawa, a battle is raging: On one side, the citizens of this once-idyll. On the other, the mammoth oil company Pexton, which has, over generations, polluted the village's water and air and ground and, through its malfeasance, killed a growing number of its children. With smooth prose from a number of narrators among the villagers, How Beautiful We Were tells the multi-generational saga of one small village's battle not just against one corporation and the dictator who profits from its avarice, but against neocolonialism itself. The novel's reach could have easily exceeded its grasp, given the weighty themes and its span, but Mbue reaches for the moon and, by the novel's end, has it firmly held in her hands. The villagers know that something is wrong with the land they're living on. Acid rains, rivers gone a sickly green, people dizzy with disease. And they know that Pexton, the

  • Results From The City That Just Gave Away Cash

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 17:31:00

    Editor's note: This is an excerpt of Planet Money 's newsletter. You can sign up here . Pixabay In 2012, when Michael Tubbs was a city council member in Stockton, Calif., the city was going through a tough time. It was dealing with the fallout from the financial crisis. It was working its way through a bankruptcy. It was also regularly featured in Forbes Magazine as one of " America's Most Miserable Cities ." For Tubbs, the Forbes jab was personal. He was raised in Stockton and grew up in poverty. He was elected to the city council at the age of 22, and went on to run for mayor. He won in 2016, becoming — at age 26 — one of the youngest mayors in the country. Tubbs says he came to the mayor's office ready to enact some transformative change in Stockton. "I decided that we would call into question the very structure that produces poverty in the first place," he told NPR in an interview in 2020. In 2019, he founded the Stockton Economic Empowerment Distribution, or SEED . Funded by

  • With Her Recording Series 'Rising Sun,' Lara Downes Re-Centers Black Composers

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 17:29:00

    You might know her as the host of NPR Music's web series, Amplify with Lara Downes , or by her work as a concert pianist – through each, Downes' goal has been to elevate the work of Black artists. Her new project, Rising Sun Music , is something of a combination: Downes will release a mini-album every month, for as long as she can keep it up, to highlight overlooked and forgotten compositions by Black artists in the classical music tradition. In honor of Women's History Month, its latest entry focuses on some overlooked and under-appreciated bodies of work by women composers and performers. "It gets very frustrating to always be looking up at a lineage that doesn't reflect you," Downes says. "So as a person of mixed race, it was very personal at first. And then it became a story that I really wanted to tell, because it's a story that changes another story. You know, it changes the story of what is classical music, but it also changes the story of what is American history." Rachel

  • Georgia Elections Official Responds To Bills That Would Make Voting Harder

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 17:29:00

    Georgia elections official Gabriel Sterling gained national attention a few months ago by pushing back against President Donald Trump's false claims of voter fraud. But Republican state lawmakers in Georgia, inspired by those falsehoods, have introduced a handful of bills that would increase barriers to voting for some people. Georgia is among 43 states that are considering similar legislation, according to the Brennan Center . Sterling, a Republican who is now the chief operating officer for the Georgia secretary of state's office, says some of the measures backed by Republican Georgia state lawmakers go too far. But he argues that many of the proposals could end up helping elections administrators. There was no widespread fraud in Georgia, he says, but there were small numbers of double voting, out-of-state voting and voting by felons. Rules involving photo IDs could make things easier for elections workers, he says. "In a state like Georgia, where the election is getting closer and

  • What Went Wrong: Analysis Of Police Handcuffing, Pepper Spraying 9-Year-Old Girl

    wbgo.org Tuesday, 9 March 2021 17:01:00

    NPR / YouTube On a frigid, late January afternoon, Rochester, N.Y., police responded to a reported domestic disturbance on the city's north side. Thirty minutes later, a 9-year-old girl was handcuffed, forced into a squad car and pepper-sprayed in her eyes. She is Black. The officers are white. NPR is not identifying her because she is a minor. Police body camera footage of the encounter sparked outrage and fresh scrutiny of how police treat people in distress. We assembled three experts on policing, race and mental health to examine the Rochester police footage. They break down what went wrong and how it might have been handled differently. As part of America's ongoing reckoning with racial injustice, a handful of cities have pledged to fundamentally change how they respond to persons in a psychiatric, behavioral or substance abuse crisis. It's estimated that Americans with mental illnesses make up almost a quarter of all those killed by police and at least 10% of all police calls for
