President Trump Weighs in on Breastfeeding; Chicago Area Doulas Discuss Reproductive Justice at Home and Abroad; Global Notes: Reviving Greece's Contemporary Music Scene
On Today's Show:
- The U.S. has a long history of taking the side of the formula industry when it comes to breastfeeding. To discuss, we’re joined by Lucy Martinez Sullivan, co-founder and executive director of the non-profit, 1,000 Days.
- Many people have heard of the terms reproductive health and reproductive rights but few have heard of the term reproductive justice. We are joined by Amy I. Catania, the volunteer executive director of Chicago Volunteer Doulas, Jeanine Valrie Logan, a certified lactation education specialist, and Stephanie Martinez, a midwifery student, to discuss the doula movement.
- Greece experienced population loss, and for a short period, the state broadcaster--one of the only outlets for Greek culture--was forced to close. Amid the Chaos, musician Nick Page released an album called Xaos. He joins us to talk about the project and the state of modern Greek music and creativity under austerity, as does Tony Sarabia, host of Radio M and the Morning Shift on WBEZ.
