EPISODE THIRTY TWO Hasta La Habana Siempre

 

What comes to mind when someone says, “CUBA?”  Classic automobiles, Buena Vista, Che?  Maybe you envision a socialist utopia with free, universal healthcare and education?  Or a maybe a communist dystopia with all of its problems?  In EPISODE THIRTY TWO we invite geographer Johnny Finn to discuss US American geographical imaginations of this large Caribbean island and unpack the various narratives that inform how we arrive to Cuba in our minds.  This episode will broadcast first from Radio Fabrik on June 24th at 7:06 PM Salzburg time (1:06 PM New York).

EPISODE THIRTY ONE The World as Village: 100 People

In EPISODE THIRTY ONE we use statistics to bring the world closer to home and to inform how we think about our place within the milieu. Forget about trying to understand 7.5 billion people. What if the world was a village of 100–each member of that community representing 1% of the world population? Joining us is Lisa Frank of the 100 People Foundation as we talk about statistics and the impact they have on the geographical imagination. This episode will broadcast first from Radio Fabrik on May 27th at 7:06 PM Salzburg time (1:06 PM New York).
