The Morning Show

The New KPFA Morning Show – January 5, 2011

Are P G & E’s Smart Meters smart? Or are we acting stupidly to accept this massive roll out of new technology in our homes and neighborhoods? We talk to local activists, Joshua Hart, director of Stop Smart Meters and Rebecca, who uses a pseudonym to talk about her electrosensitivity.

Then, a mentally ill man in a wheelchair was shot repeatedly by rubber bullets last night by SF police police. Mesha Irizarry, whose son was killed in a similar incident, talks about it.

Finally, we talk to Cathryn Couch, the director of Ceres, a unique organization that trains young people to cook, as it delivers free meals to people living with cancer. Adrienne Lauby co-hosts with Joy Moore.
