1. Chapter 4: “Location Is Everything” (click through to download the entire show in mp3)
This episode happened a few weeks ago, but thankfully will now exist at least as long as the internet does. Sorry everyone, I’ve been busy eating grilled sweet corn (duh). Download and listen for a snapshot of things you could’ve been doing in Oberlin if you were here when the show was recorded, what the state should not have been doing then (and now!), blueberry jamz, and not one but two guest talkers - Marianthe Bickett on purslane (wild foraging, really) and Rafe Scobey-Thal on brown eggs (really). 
I rounded out the show with a little snippet of an episode of Moon River, a dreamy old-time radio show that I have recently fallen in love with. Don’t tell. Or do. Regardless, get more here.
If you hate the sound of my voice, here’s the link to download just the tunes. 
1. Isley Brothers - Summer Breeze (Cincinnati)
2. Doc Watson & Bill Monroe - Banks of the Ohio
3. Cloud Nothings - Understand at All (Cleveland)
4. Kid Cudi - Cudi Zone (Cleveland)
5. The Pretenders - Brass In Pocket (Akron)
6. Guided By Voices - Window of My World (Dayton)
7. Magnolia Electric Co. - Whip-poor-will (Lorain/Oberlin)
8. Sun Kil Moon - Carry Me Ohio
9. Pavement - Winner Of The 
Hey! That’s an illustration of Lambs quarters! Yummy.

    Chapter 2: “There’s Nothing Else to Do but Do It Yourself” (Click through for download link of the whole show)
This week on Kleinsburg, Ohio, I broadcasted an interview that I recorded with Eddy Kwon on Sunday, July 26 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Eddy is a composer-performer that lives and makes music in Cincinnati with The Happy Maladies, Honest Abe, Fractal Fractal, and Gorgeous. He is also a founding member of the Marburg Collective, a “Network of engaged citizens whose aim is to be a meaningful resource for our city’s creative community, empowering those who seek means of self-expression.”
I also read a poem from Philomela (2011)  by Galen Beebe, an Oberlin student who is currently living in Argentina  and whose blog can be found here.
Some of the news got a little chopped up (because let me tell you it is amateur night at the Apollo in Computertechnology, Ohio) so check out these links for more information.

The state legislature will be voting on the Wachtman Abortion Ban (also known as the “Heartbeat Bill”) this week. This law would require doctors to search for a fetal heartbeat prior to performing an abortion. If they find what they’re looking for, the abortion would be deemed illegal except in emergency health situations. This bill is tantamount to a complete ban on abortion because the fetal heartbeat can be seen using ultrasound machines roughly 4 weeks after conception. Robin Marty, writing at Alternet, explains that, “For most women, that would provide a window of two weeks or less in order to learn she was pregnant, make her decision about the pregnancy, arrange for an appointment, gather money for an abortion, obtain the mandatory counseling and sit through the required 24 hour waiting period.” If you don’t like the sound of this, email your congresspeople here. 
Also, keep your eyes on three bills in the Ohio General Assembly - SB 148, HB 194 and HB 159 - that propose dramatic limitations to the voting rights of people in Ohio, particularly low income folks, elderly folks, students, and people of color. SB 148 and HB 194 would cripple in-person and mail absentee voting, dramatically scale back the window for early voting and eliminate county-level flexibility to craft innovative, pro-voter policies. HB 159 is a voter ID bill that the Cleveland Plain Dealer called the “most restrictive” measure of its kind in the country. Call your state senator today at 1.888.218.5931 and learn more about the bills here.
