TMI 09/08/2023 – Fixing the Racism of Interstate Highways, Coiner of “Cisgender” Speaks Out on What it Really Means, How to Accurately Define “Gentrifying” and more

As summer winds down and many of us take to the road before things cool down, we take a look at the Interstate Highway system, and how its planning and development were used to smash communities of color all across the USA – and what we can do now to fix the problems caused by that. Sixty years of suffering is a lot to make up for, but it’s never too late to start.

Then, we hear from Dana Defosse, the PhD who coined the term “cisgender” some thirty years ago, and why she is horrified by how misconstrued and abused the term has become. Finally, we give a quick reminder of how to properly define “gentrification” so we can see it for the class struggle issue that it is, and not the cultural inconvenience some would like to paint it as. All this and more on TMI for Friday, September 08, 2023 – listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media!

TMI 02/11/2022 – How the USA Doesn’t Realize it Is a Poor Country, Fin Whales Make a Return, How “Colorblindness” Is Racism, More

Here in the USA, we are very proud of ourselves as a nation, looking down on “third world” countries where the people face food insecurity, violence from corrupt or racist policing, mass homelessness… without realizing that what we are describing is also HERE. We find out what happened to bring us from the heights of a strong middle class to the point at which very few can truly make ends meet.

Then, in a heartwarming turn, thousands of Fin Whales have been spotted together in Antarctic waters – we’ll tell you why this is even better than it may seem on the surface. Finally, we look at how, because it’s not generally acceptable to be openly racist, the idea of being “colorblind” has spread far and wide. But this trend doesn’t actually help anything – indeed, it may lead to more racism. We discuss all this and more on TMI for Friday, February 11, 2022 – listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media!
