Welcome to the Morning Mix, this is the Project Censored Show on Pacifica Radio, I’m Peter Phillips, here in studio with guest co-host Dr. Andy Roth. Today’s show: Labor in Global Perspective. We’ll hear first from Dr. Nicki Cole, a sociologist whose research on the production, marketing, and consumption of coffee raises deep questions about ethical consumerism in a global age. In our second segment, Steve Zeltzer of Work Week Radio will interview molecular biologist and injured Phizer scientist Becky McClain and David Bell, an injured worker at Agragquest where pesticides were being genetically engineered. We’ll focus on the risks of synthetic biology and the corporate interests behind it. We’ll conclude the show with a living legend: For seven decades, Selma James has been a champion for women’s rights and a critic of racism and capitalism. Her latest book is titled Sex, Race and Class—The Perspective of Winning. Show Hosts: Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips, with Abby Martin of Media Roots.
