The Many Shades of Green

The Many Shades of Green The Many Shades of Green delves into topics that affect the environment locally and globally, as we move to raise social and environmental awareness via culture, politics, and the arts.

Show Description: The Many Shades of Green delves into topics that affect the environment in Brooklyn and beyond, as we move to raise social awareness via culture, politics, music and the arts. We hope to open up a dialogue to enhance efforts that create innovation and change. We all have to learn to think out side the box, to promote ideas that will make the world a better place for this and future generations. Host Bio: Maxine Margo Rubin has been involved with the media business as a content producer and part-time co-host for Air America (Marc Sussman's Money Message), and hosted and produced Village Green on WDFH, a show which focused on topics of environmental sustainability and progressive social issues. In addition, she worked to create a pilot for Green World Radio. Maxine is a Brooklyn girl, born and raised on Ocean Parkway, and is an alum of Abraham Lincoln High School and Brooklyn College. She has a master's degree in Public Policy/Public Administration from New York University (The Wagner School). Maxine is a confirmed "Greeniac," and serves on the Sustainability Advisory Board in the Town of New Castle. She loves all genres of music, and enjoys her wonderful, nutty and creative family, including her pampered and highly cerebral pooch, Sparky 2.0 She is happy to be connected with BBox Radio, and looks forward to spreading the word about environmental and social issues affecting Brooklyn and beyond. Co-Producer: Abba Carmichael Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Abba Charice Carmichael grew up submerged in the arts and an environment of “greenness” with her family’s healthy shoe company. After visiting New York City and falling in love, Abba promised her twelve year old self that she would move to The Big Apple as soon as able; three days after graduating college, Abba did just that. New York quickly opened adventures her wildest dreams never imagined. Eager to find involvement with a radio station near her new Brooklyn home, (by nothing short of fate) BBOX Radio fell into Abba’s life, and with it one of her most proud New York adventures: producing The Many Shades of Green with Maxine. Abba spends her non-TMSOG hours traveling and gaining new skills while freelancing as a producer, casting director, actor, and website developer. She holds an A.A. in Musical Theatre from Young Harris College and a B.F.A from The Savannah College of Art and Design. During her time in this enchanting city, Abba considers herself living the “emerald shade of green.” AbbaCarmichael.com Sound Editing: Brian Horowitz

Mission: The Many Shades of Green aims to raise social awareness via culture, politics, music and the arts, and open up a dialogue to enhance efforts that create innovation and change.

The Many Shades of Green w/guest Maya K. van Rossum-Delaware River Keeper 1/14/21

Our guest is Maya van Rossum who has dedicated her life to being the “voice of the Delaware River.” She has taken on industry, government, and even the U.S. Army, preventing harm to the River, communities, and environments she so bravely champions. Maya is currently working to empower individuals across the nation to stand up for their environmental rights by pioneering the Green Amendment Movement. She has written a book called The Green Amendment: Securing Our Right to a Healthy Environment. In 2013, Maya and her organization achieved a major victory in the landmark case, Robinson Township, Delaware Riverkeeper Network, v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The case, decided by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, revived the state’s long-ignored Constitutional Environmental Rights Amendment, empowering it to protect the people’s right to pure water, clean air, and a healthy environment. Maya has also inspired some musicians, and a group called The Donuts wrote a song in her name, titled “Maya van Rossum’s Blues,” which is about an oil spill that spewed 165,000 gallons of heavy crude into the Delaware.

Find out how vitamins, herbs and minerals can help improve sleep and reduce stress. Also, there are good carbs that we can eat without guilt, as they do have a place in our diet. We need to include magnesium (pumpkin seed are a good source), as well as selenium, Omega 3FA, Kava root and more. Courtney touches on CBD, and explains how to decipher what foods and supplements are good. Here’s a question, why does James Bond like oysters? Tune in to find out.

A wonderful film that follows Anne Innis Dagg on her journey to study giraffes and the wonder and obstacles she faces along the way. The documentary is beautifully shot an directed by Alison Reid, and also stars giraffes who are truly magical and special creatures. In 1999, there were 140,000 giraffes in the wild, today there are less than 98,000.
