Recovery Zone has retired. It previously played on KBOO every 4th Wednesday of each month, from 11:00 am to 11:30 am.

 Healing Our World

Everywhere we look we see a world in trouble--environmental degradation; war, torture and militarism; corporate greed, poverty and economic injustice;  a negligent media--and all of it intertwined.  Yet there are also people dedicated to solving these problems--working on them from every possible angle.  They are part of a leaderless, bottom up, grass roots social movement manifesting itself in a myriad of ways. Paul Hawken describes this movement as humanity's "immune response"  to the sickness that pervades our world -- "social antibodies attaching themselves to the pathologies of power."  The Recovery Zone gives voice to these healers. Tune in or check it out in the KBOO archives.
