Censorship in the history classroom / Food waste and climate change _ on Project Censored

Coming up every Tuesday and Saturday at 8 am Pacific * 11 am Eastern * 16:00 GMTProject Censored

Eleanor Goldfield and Mickey Huff co-host this week’s program. The first guest is Eleanor’s father, history professor David Goldfield; their topic is the recent trend toward censoring historical truths that are apt to make some students “uncomfortable.”
In the second half of the show, Mirna Wabi-Sabi points out that food waste is not only a huge loss of human nutrition, but also a giant contributor to climate change. As well, she urges a focus on the capitalist system and how it creates waste, rather than being distracted by calls for change at the individual level, which achieve little.

David Goldfield teaches history at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and has written 16 books. His research focuses on the American South and the Civil War. He is one of a team of six historians who wrote the college history text “The American Journey.”
Mirna Wabi-Sabi is a writer, editor and translator from Brazil. She is the founder of the Plataforma9 initiative and the author of the bilingual pocket book, “Anarcho-Transcreation.”
