On this, the last-ever episode of Corporate Watchdog Radio, we take a stroll down memory lane to revisit the best moments in CWR’s history. The exchanges that had us on the edge of our seats, straining into our headphones to hear every syllable. We hear from a crotchety Barney Frank, a reflective Frances Moore Lappe, a tentative but ultimately optimistic Bill McKibben, a hopeful George Monbiot, and an eloquent Paul Hawken. Starting in 2009, CWR is changing its name to Sea Change Radio to cover the shift to social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
The Idea of the Corporation is one of the most powerful forces in our world – both constructive, efficiently moving money and goods, and destructive, polluting our environment and disempowering workers and citizens. Author Francis Moore Lappe’ shares her ideas for re-framing the the corporation, the citizen and the economy from her new book, “Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity and Courage in a World Gone Mad.”
