On the first part of the show, we’ll be joined by Emily Goodstein, director of Spiritual Youth for Reproductive Freedom. SYRF is a national organization that educates, organizes and empowers youth and young adults to put their faith into action and advocate for pro-choice social justice. Visit their website at syrf.org.
Next, we’ll talk with Dr. Mark Waldman, who co-authored How God Changes Your Brain with neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Newberg. No matter what your religious beliefs might be, there are benefits — and caveats — to religious contemplation and spiritual meditation.
Religion, youth, politics, and neuroscience… coming up.
Our interview with Dr. Waldman had to be rescheduled due to a communication problem in Malibu. Yes, even Malibu has its imperfections! Tune in for that interview with Dr. Waldman on October 6.

On the first half of the show, we’ll have a live phone interview with University of Houston student organizer Brendan Laws. Brendan has played an active role in campus organizations fighting for fair trade and opposing sweatshops, often with the support of only a handful of students. Through determination and creativity, these groups drew support from the surrounding community, and succeeded in standing up to powerful corporations.
We’ll also hear from a sampling of students lounging on the Brooklyn College lawn. What teachers have made a difference to them? What are they looking ahead to this year?
Student voices from Brooklyn to Houston… coming up.
