Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area


WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

America Beyond Capitalism with Gar Alperovitz - 28'  

America Beyond Capitalism:
Reclaiming Our Wealth, Our Liberty and Our Democracy
Gar Alperovitz, Professor of Political Economy, University of Maryland
and co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative

As discontent with the economic and political status quo mounts in

the wake of the "great recession," Gar Alperovitz's “America Beyond
Capitalism” suggests a bottom-up effort currently already underway
in communities across the U.S., which point in the direction of,
among other things worker-owned cooperatives, and community
land trusts, supported by policies and resources from municipal,
state and federal government. Ongoing economic pain is likely to

continue to inspire such initiatives to demand further action to
democratize the ownership of capital, so that ownership goes to
the 99% in new ways rather than to the top 1%.”
