  2. The Battle Over Teaching Critical Race Theory | Fresh Air


    An NBC News analysis finds at least 165 local and national groups are trying to disrupt or block lessons on critical race theory. NBC reporter Tyler Kingkade explores who is waging this fight, and why. "Opponents are using critical race theory as really more of a catchall to include anything teaching students about systemic racism, any mention of white privilege, and really the definition that they’re using has expanded to include anything related to equity, diversity and inclusion," he says.

    Also, critic Kevin Whitehead reviews the last albums from bassist Mario Pavone, which he recorded near the end of his life.

  3. Network Collective: INTRODUCTION TO GRPC

    As the world of network automation continues to evolve, we are seeing different options emerge in how we programmatically interface with our devices. In this episode we take a look at one of the newest and more interesting methods, gRPC. gRPC was developed by Google as a way to execute remote procedure calls in the orchestration of their system and includes such concepts as Protocol Buffers, authentication, bidirectional streaming, and flow control. Join us as we dive into how gRPC works, why it’s different than what you may already know, and why you may want to look into using it to orchestrate your infrastructure.

  4. Eavesdropping On The Insurrection

    Micah Loewinger produced this story for On the Media (OTM) about the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th of this year. Micah logged into a public channel on Zello, a walkie-talkie type app, and listened to conversations on “Stop the Steal J6,” a channel set up by far-right extremists. As he monitored the channel, the app saved a file to Micah’s computer and he immediately had access to an audio recording of everything that was said. Micah describes the whole process and the value of the recordings on this episode of HowSound.

  5. Talking Politics: Britain Wrestles with its Past

    We talk with the writer and political commentator Fintan O’Toole about how British politics can and should deal with its imperial past in the age of Brexit. From battles over statues to fights over nationalism we explore whether history has become the new democratic divide. Why does Churchill loom so large over our politics? Can Labour reclaim the mantle of patriotism? Will the Union survive the history wars? Plus we ask whether there has been a generational shift in attitudes to race and identity. With Helen Thompson.

    Talking Points:

    Debates over statues and monuments are really more about the present than the past.

    ⋅ They don’t necessarily lead you to a real engagement with either your history or your contemporary identity.

    ⋅ Britain has a long history of questioning how the past is thought about in the public sphere.

    Is it possible to have a serious political argument about Churchill’s legacy anymore?

    ⋅ In the age of Johnson, is everything a proxy?

    ⋅ Churchill can’t be separated from the Second World War in British historical memory.

    ⋅ The Churchill question goes deep into the Union question. If you take away the experience of the two world wars, it’s not clear what keeps the Union together.

    How do you articulate a sense of British patriotism when the state is in decline and the history it’s wrapped up in is often disgraceful?

    ⋅ For example, you could celebrate Britain’s move to outlaw the slave trade—but almost every historian would point out that this is shot through with hypocrisy.

    ⋅ There’s a profound problem around the history of Britishness.

    Over the last 10 years, two different consensuses have broken down, and these interact with each other quite lethally.

    ⋅ First there’s consent to Britain’s membership in the EU; this broke down more in England and in Wales.

    ⋅ Second is consent to the Anglo-Scottish union breaking down in Scotland.

    ⋅ And the fact that the referendum produced a Leave vote meant that the Northern Ireland question came back into play.

    Nationalisms always want to purify themselves into victimhood.

    ⋅ What this does is occlude the complexity of the history of the nation itself.

    ⋅ Nationalism involves telling a story about the past that often, though not always, involves trying to break away from some larger political authority, often an empire.

    ⋅ Part of the present moment’s attitude towards British history is not new: the sense that British history was delegitimated by Empire has been there before.
