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.”

Our guest in this episode is attorney, author and artist Susan L. Pollet, who has been practicing law for over forty years. Susan’s experience in family law has given her a deep perspective into what women deal with to keep their heads above water. Her latest book entitled Women in Crisis-Stories from the Edge, consists of stories about women patients of an accomplished woman psychiatrist, whose experiences exemplify challenges faced by many women, to varying degrees. Susan recites a poem she wrote about the environment, and we discuss the question of how to deal with flirtation, its generational nature, as well what effects it is having on the #MeToo era. In her first novel, LESSONS IN SURVIVAL: ALL ABOUT AMOS, Susan created the collage for the book cover, and also painted the portrait which appears on the cover of this novel.

Annie Sprinkle & Beth Stephens and The Eco Sexual Movement

In this episode, we explore the Ecosexuality movement, a relatively new sexual identity which connects environmental activism based around nature, and promotes the idea of the earth as a lover. It invites people to treat the earth with love rather than see it as an infinite resource to exploit. It was founded by our guests, Elizabeth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle, who describe themselves as “two ecosexual artists-in-love”, whose manifesto is to make environmental activism “more sexy, fun, and diverse”. Their new book, is titled, Assuming the Ecosexual Position: The Earth as Lover. Annie and Beth give us insight about how they came together to collaborate on this latest work, how they took a stand against homophobia, xenophobia, and how this union led to the miraculous conception of the Love Art Laboratory. Go to sprinklestephens.org for more info.

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.
