Reinventing our cities and re-enchanting the world. Who gets a say in designing where they live? What if more of us did? This week, we visit Mary Miss, a Guggenheim fellow and celebrated artist, whose organization, The City as Living Laboratory, strives to empower people to create not the cliché of the sustainable city, she says, but places of living and breathing, creative sustenance. Then we speak to scholars Silvia Federici and Peter Linebaugh about the promises of "commoning" for our environment – and our social health.  Music Featured: "Harvest for the World" rework by Groove Junkies & ReelSoul featuring Nichelle Monroe, released on MoreHouse Records.

Before the news broke of Amazon's pulling out of NYC's L.I.C. to build its HQ2, we looked at the resistance the plan provoked and why, and considered how development might be possible without displacement? Guests: Sasha Wijeyeratne, Executive Director of CAAAV organizing Asian communities, Juleon Robinson, Program Associate of the New Economy Project, and Maritza Silva-Farrell, Executive Director of ALIGN. And we tour the neighborhood with Bishop Mitchell G. Taylor, Senior Pastor of Center of Hope Church International and the co-founder & CEO of Urban UpBound, L.I.C., Queens.  Music Spotlight: Pete Seeger singing “Which Side Are You On?” written by Florence Reece in 1931.  Support theLFShow!

Like a macho man in the pre-feminist era, Amazon wanted things their way or no way. That’s how monopolies roll. Don’t ask questions, don’t consider options, and whatever you do, don’t conduct a background check.

As the President sounds off about holy babies born and unborn, we talk about the ongoing criminalization of women who happen to get pregnant. What has been the media’s role and have they done enough to make amends? We’ll talk to Lynn Paltrow, one of the lawyers representing incarcerated women, media critic Janine Jackson, and Suzanne Sellers who fell afoul of one of those laws in the 1990s. Then, Lynn Paltrow on the threats to Roe and more. Music Featured: "Mr. President" by Kana Mota. The NYTimes Article and Apology

This week's F-Word is on the chilling reality of the US incarceration system which was amplified in New York recently, when the heat went off at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, leaving thousands of pre-trial detainees freezing in their cells for days on end.

When you live in the rural South, your story rarely makes the news, but Southern activists are shaking things up, with their votes, and their broadband transmitter too. This week, Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson and Rev. Allyn Maxfield-Steele, the co-directors of the revered civil rights school, the Highlander Center, talk about blue waves, black women and broadband. And we revisit Detroit, where residents denied affordable internet meshed servers to serve their neighbors, one rooftop at a time.  “As the World Ends” by TQX featuring  Gian Slater and Pete Miser from the album Global Intimacy released on Extra Celestial ArtsSupport theLFShow!
