Whoa, Nellie!

Jun 21, 2019

We love hosting the talented Nellie McKay in our studio A. She is funny, opinionated, and a joy to be around. Brian has known Nellie for seventeen years, since the release of her debut "Get Away From Me" in 2002 and he tries to make sure she pays us a visit whenever she comes through the Bay Area.

Nellie has some shows nearby. June 23rd she appears in Novato @ Hopmonk, and Tuesday the 25th she is in the Ivy Room in Albany. Which leaves her free to join us Monday!

Tune in for Nellie McKay in Studio A this Monday @ 11am. (She's bringing her uke!)

A conversation between Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald reportedly went like this: Fitzgerald says, “The rich are different from you and me.” To which Hemingway responded, “Yes, they have more money.” You bet they do. And now more than ever. The old Gilded Age pales in comparison to the current one. The wealthy of the late 19th century: Rockefeller, Vanderbilt and Mellon look impoverished in relation to the current crop of Bezos, Gates and Buffet. Inequality is at record levels. How has it happened? The attack on unions has hurt workers. CEO pay has gone through the roof.

Journalist Mark Lynas campaigned against genetically modified foods. Then in 2008, he changed his mind. On this week's episode, we talk to Lynas about his journey from anti-GMO activist to pro-GMO advocate. Plus, we discuss the strange eating habits of the world’s most infamous dictators; Dan Pashman teaches us how to outsmart a buffet; and we grill up pork skewers from Thailand.

On the next Morning Edition, emergency managers in Florida are re-thinking their evacuation strategy after learning hard lessons from Hurricane Michael last year. Also, why the makers of the hit Broadway musical about The Temptations say you should be proud to be loud. Listen for news, plus stories that affect your world on the next Morning Edition from NPR News.

What comes to mind when you hear the word “Diva”? We’ve found that it’s a word that can go both ways—as praise for an accomplished and magnetic performer, or as a put-down to someone seen as pompous or high-strung. We’re singing divas’ praises while also exploring the term’s various connotations through music and interviews from high-minded women with conflicting views on the word: Bonnie Raitt, the late Abbey Lincoln, Norah Jones, and New Orleans Gospel Diva, Cynthia Girtley. Plus songs from divas and non-divas like Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline, Lydia Mendoza, and Jessie Mae Hemphill.

This week on This American Life: LaDonna works security at an airport, a job she really loved, except for her supervisors. They did some pretty bad stuff.
