Peter and Walt will be participating in a panel discussion about local journalism.

Peter and Walt talked with UNM Professor Emeritus Gregory Cajete, this spring’s first speaker in the ongoing NMSUCCESS “climate-change” series. Dr. Cajete’s talk should be of unique interest, because he’ll discuss the intersection of climate change and indigenous ways and science. Culturally-based science is an interesting subject in which Dr. Cajete has been a pioneer.
Co-hosts Peter Goodman and Walter Rubel began their March 24, 2021 show talking about the recent gun violence in Boulder, Colorado and the recent legislative session in Santa Fe.
The New Mexico Legislature is not a co-equal branch of government, and that’s by design.
The New Mexico governor’s office is modern and up-to-date; and operates much like other governor’s offices throughout the country. The last major update came in 2020 when a new cabinet-level department was added to coordinate services for young children. The New Mexico Legislature is antiquated and out-of-date; and is thoroughly unlike any other state legislature in the country. I’m not sure when (or if) the last major update was, but it happened sometime before I came here in 2002.

On March 25, 1911, 146 workers, mostly young Jewish and Italian immigrant women, lost their lives in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, the most notorious industrial accident in the country. The experience mobilized tens of thousands to demand safer working conditions, and the legacy of the fire on vastly improved worker safety is still with us today. In remembrance of this date, Café con Leche presents The Long Memory of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, a radio documentary produced by Nan Rubin on the 100th anniversary of this tragic event.
