BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast – Pope’tastic with Brad Kierkegaard

Click here to subscribe on iTunes too!!

BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast with Brad Kierkegaard, religious studies professor from San Diego State University.

And no he’s not a relation of the famous 19th century philosopher.

We talked about the Pope.

The Pope is making waves inside and outside the church.

His views on what the Catholic Church should be focused on.

The poor over birth control.

His criticisms of global capitalism.

He’s even come out in favor of breastfeeding, though we don’t talk about that.

I waited as long as I did after Pope Francis came into power because I wanted him to have to time to do stuff before I started to judge him. Brad has some great points about this new Pope. I particularly like his comparison to Pope Emeritus Benedict.

We sat in the little chapel behind the alter at Saint Joseph’s, San Diego’s Cathedral.

Brad has this great way of couching his criticisms in positivity. It’s a fascinating and interesting chat.

BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast Barrio Logan Zoned Out

Listen above or get it here on iTunes!

I asked myself what San Diego political issue is both under talked about and very important to the mayor’s race?

The answer for me is Barrio Logan zoning regulations.

Now before you yawn think about this …

While at first blush zoning regulation don’t seem that exciting, these rules determine what you can do with your land, what business are allowed in a community, even how many people are allowed to live in a neighborhood.
So zoning has a direct and very important impact on your life.

Barrio Logan is a community created when the 5 freeway was built, bisecting Logan Heights. Under much protest and cries the freeway went through. Then the Coronado Bridge was built and sparking loud protests witch eventually lead to the creation of Chicano Park.

Now the community there wants to create some industrial free zones.

There is a lot of industry in Barrio Logan, lots of heavy industry. The most notable is the maritime industries. They pay a lot in tax, employ lots of people, and are very important to the city outside of the barrio.

This issue is making its way into mayoral election politics is some very interesting ways. The issue has a racial component that could be part of the reason the next mayor wins or why his opponent loses.

Barrio Logan was born fighting.

And the people from there don’t back down, they are used to long fights.

This time on the Bowler’s Desk Political Podcast I sat down with Georgette Gomez from the Environmental Health Coalition. She’s a Barrio Logan native. She has a lot of interesting things to say about her almost decade long fight to make changes to the Barrio Logan zoning rules.

Agree or not you’ve got to respect her zeal and commitment.

BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast with Greenpeace on board the Rainbow Warrior

Listen above or on iTunes HERE

BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast with me Matthew Bowler and San Diego’s Political Professor Ric Epps

This time we are on board the official Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior II.

The original was blown up by the French equivalent to the CIA. So Greenpeace just built another one. This one has a very interesting and avant garde design. The ship has a traditional engine, an electric engine, and two sails. However the sails don’t fly from a traditional mast. Greenpeace is hopping the new design they’re using will work as a proof of concept showing cargo ship builders that using sails are viable for cargo vessels. It’s a very cool and interesting design defiantly worth a serious look.

We talked to her Captain Capitan Joel Stewart

And Green Pease Oceans Campaigner Casson Trenor.

It was a fascinating hour.

We talked about the Greenpeace ship that was seized by the Russian military and the 30 activists that were arrested. We talked about one ironic aspect to global warming and Arctic oil drilling. We talked about Bumble Bee Tuna and read parts of a letter from the San Diego Bumble Bee CEO.

Of course I know you’ve got an opinion and your dyeing to share it.
