Sustainability Now! | Don Reinhardt | Louisville Cohousing | July 1, 2024
On this week’s program, your host, Justin Mog, takes a seat in the common area for a great conversation about building community through cohousing! Listen in as we dialogue with Don Reinhardt, Outreach Director for Louisville Cohousing (https://www.louisvillecohousing.com/). Since the beginning of humankind, people lived with their extended families in communities where many tasks and resources were shared. Villages were structured in a way that encouraged more daily interaction.It is still that way in many places in the world. But here in the United States, especially, since World War,  our neighborhoods have typically been designed for the nuclear family in a way that encourages less interaction. Isolation has become one of the most prominent public health issues of our time. We are more self-sufficient, but are we really? In 1940, an estimated 8 percent of Americans lived alone in their household. Now, 40 million Americans currently live alone, accounting for 30% of American households. And loneliness, according to the surgeon general, has been found to have the same negative health impact as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.Revived models of the village, namely Cohousing, can provide a way to plan for a healthier and more sustainable way of living, where neighbors design their village together and support each other more. Learn more and get connected with Louisville Cohousing at https://www.louisvillecohousing.com/ Don is a native Kentuckian who graduated from Northern Kentucky University in the early 1980’s with a degree in Psychology. Don currently lives in Campbellsburg, KY, where he returned to his home state in 2017 after 25 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. His work has included careers in mental health, information technology, and construction management, with over 30 years of experience in all levels of residential construction. He became interested in intentional community early in his career while studying at NKU. Don has lived in two Cohousing communities on the West Coast, and through all of his work he has carried a lifelong passion for combining Social Ventures with Housing Solutions. As a housing consultant, Don is currently partnered with nonprofit organizations in Louisville with missions of providing Affordable Housing for persons who have been marginalized. He has worked primarily with the Mattingly Edge, and a new non-profit start-up, Inclusive Housing Solutions, to launch Louisville Cohousing. In cooperation with Hope Dittmeier and Broke Crum at Mattingly Edge, and Mathilde Berthe at STUDIO co+hab, a cohousing architectural firm, and Frank Schwartz, a social worker, he recently spearheaded a grassroots effort by citizens who are part of Louisville Cohousing to get Cohousing included in the final draft of Mayor Greenberg’s My Louisville Home Plan for 15,000 new Affordable Housing units by 2027. Don has family in Campbellsburg, Louisville, and Northern Kentucky. He has the dream of establishing Cohousing communities at each location. Listen to Don's earlier appearance on Forward Radio, when Don talked cohousing with Ruth Newman and K.A. Owens on April 3rd: https://soundcloud.com/wfmp-forward-radio/access-hour-live-for-the-pledge-drive-cohousing-4-3-24 As always, our feature is followed by your community action calendar for the week, so get your calendars out and get ready to take action for sustainability NOW!

Truth to Power | Highlights from Bluegrass VegFest 2024 | Stuart Waldner | 6-28-24
Forward Radio was a proud media sponsor, providing wall-to-wall live coverage of the 5th Annual Bluegrass VegFest held on Saturday, June 22, 2024. Tune in for a sample of Kentuckiana’s Largest Vegan Food Festival - a free public event produced by Bluegrass Veg, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, featuring 30,000 sq ft of marketplace halls at the Mellwood Art Center. Learn more at http://bluegrassvegfest.com Today we bring you highlights from the first hour of our live broadcast from the 2024 Bluegrass VegFest, including a tour of the amazing variety of vegan food trucks, conversations with fellow Forward Radio volunteers who were staffing our booth, and the first keynote speaker of the day, Stuart Waldner, author of Escape The Meatrix: Eat Plants, Feel Great, and Save the Planet! Stuart is a Kentucky native who didn’t set out to be an activist. Growing up, he embraced the standard American diet until 1985, when he made a transformative shift to a 100% plant-based lifestyle. For years, Stuart quietly pursued his path while respecting others' choices. However, as he delved deeper into the statistical correlations between our dietary habits and global crises, he felt compelled to awaken people to the urgent need for change—for our health and the planet's well-being. Drawing inspiration from the iconic Matrix movie, Stuart invites everyone to choose the "red pill" and uncover the truth about our world. Since the release of his groundbreaking book in October 2022, he has been a sought-after guest on numerous podcasts and a featured speaker at prominent conferences and festivals. Learn more at https://stuartwaldner.com/ This year’s VegFest was bigger and better than ever! Join us for a day of mouthwatering plant-based cuisine from over 20 incredible restaurants and food trucks. VegFest offers much more than just great food. Enjoy local craft beer and cocktails, listen to inspiring speakers, watch live cooking demos, and explore a large indoor marketplace packed with plant-based and cruelty-free products. Plus live music, educational exhibits and fun activities for kids. Best of all, admission is free! “Many of the world’s most pressing problems share a common cause – animal agriculture, which contributes to climate change, lifestyle diseases, global hunger, and animal suffering. Transforming the global food system by replacing animal products with plant-based and cultivated foods is a multiproblem solution.” - ProVeg International

Sustainability Now! | Deanna Rushing | Sacrifice Zones | June 24, 2024
On this week’s program, your host, Justin Mog, is thrilled to introduce you to our newest volunteer programmer here at Forward Radio, Deanna Rushing (aka “Stretch”). Deanna is the host of a new show called “Sacrifice Zones.” As she points out, we all live in a Sacrifice Zone, separated only by how well insulated we are in settler colonial projects. 

Stretch has already produced two excellent pilot programs for her new show. After we recorded our conversation, Deanna realized she made two factual errors and would like to correct the record: In fact, JCPS spent $17 million on the Evolv weapons detection systems (she said $7 million), and the Doctrine of Discovery was issued in the late 1400's (not the late 1500's, as she said). Deanna's first pilot is a conversation about the situation in Palestine with Dr. Lina Yassine, a Palestinian who was born as a refugee in Jordan. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Jordan Medical school in Amman. She later on completed an internal Medicine residency and an Endocrinology fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. She is currently practicing Endocrinology in Louisville, Kentucky. Sometimes referred to as the sugar doctor. Listen at https://soundcloud.com/wfmp-forward-radio/access-hour-sacrifice-zones-pilot-episode-1-dr-lina-yassine-6-19-24 On the second pilot, premiering on Forward Radio later this week, Stretch interviews Noelle Tennis-Gulden about the Doctrine of Discovery and how it continues to influence the settler colonial mindset today.
