6:30pm CounterSpin  The 10-year mark since Hurricane Katrina has occasioned some journalistic looks back at the devastation, and, to a lesser extent, how and why that devastation was disproportionately borne by black and poor people — and to a still lesser extent, how those same people are missing from the “silver lining” improvement or “opportunity” narratives now presented. Would that even that degree of critical consideration were granted to the anniversary of another disaster for low-income communities of color: the move to “end welfare as we know it,” signed into law in August 1996 by Bill Clinton. We talk about what was called “reform” of what was called “welfare” with associate professor of history at the University of Vermont Felicia Kornbluh, author (with Gwendolyn Mink) of the forthcoming "Ensuring Poverty: Welfare Reform After 20 Years."

6:30pm With Good Reason with Sarah McConnell  Uptalk on Jeopardy  “Uptalk” is that rising, questioning tone some people use when ending a statement. It’s becoming so common that Thomas Linneman (College of William and Mary) studied its use by contestants on the game show Jeopardy. He found women use it more than men, but male contestants often use uptalk after a woman competitor gets a wrong answer. And: Most of us think the best way to motivate is with rewards like money. But best-selling author Dan Pink says that’s a mistake. He says the secret to high performance and satisfaction is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to create new things, and to better our world.

  The Direct Route to Abiding Peace  Dr. Gail Brenner says we are not limited, damaged or inadequate. She critiques the self-help movement as perpetuating the idea that we are in need of fixing, and holds the provocative view that nothing needs to be changed or fixed to be happy. She posits that we have the capacity to spontaneously find inner peace and shed the stories and negative emotions that cause us pain. Brenner is the author of "The End of Self-Help: Discovering Peace and Happiness Right at the Heart of Your Messy, Scary, Brilliant Life.” Program #3551.
