Guests: Simi Lampert, Fred Andrle, and members of the Allen Farm

We begin in our studio with Simi Lampert and Hannah Dreyfus, editors of the Yeshiva University/Stern College BEACON, which was stripped of its funding for publishing a first-person account of pre-marital sex by an Orthodox Jewish student.  As reported in the New York Times and throughout the global media, Simi refused to censor a story that resonates worldwide.

We're then joined by Fred Andrle, award-winning former long-time host of Open Line, the lead public talk show at WOSU, the National Public Radio affiliate in Columbus, Ohio.  Andrle's unique insights on the state of talk radio are critical at a time of epic transition.
Finally we hear from pioneer wind farmers at the Allen Farm on Martha's Vineyard, who have just installed the island's largest free-standing turbine, and from Chris Rawley and Ron Zweig, veterans of a shockingly difficult battle for two large turbines installed at Falmouth, Cape Cod.  Their green power struggles tell us way too much about the state of the earth.

Censorship at a Jewish University?  It became a global story as the NYTimes and major news services reported that the BEACON student website at New York's Yeshiva University was asked to remove a sexually suggestive story---and refused!  We talk with Simi Lampert, the BEACON's co-founder about her unique run-in with undergraduate censorship.

We then visit with the Optimistic Futurist, Francis Koster, a godfather to the Solartopian Movement and originator of the legendary 1975 Toward Tomorrow Fair which birthed many of the great green technologies that make our lives possible today.
