#180 Spirituality, Politics and Gun Culture with Marielena Ferrer

Back at it for another round of deep thoughts and wild talks with Mariaelena and special guest Ulster County Sheriff Juan Figueroa.

The second Monday of the month is inspired by the book, Espiritualidad y Politica, which was published 10 years ago, of which Mariaelena was a contributor. She is also the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission. You can connect with her on Instagram here.

Today, we veer ever so slightly away from the book and into the realm of gun culture and politics. We were inspired by this article about over 180 gun deaths over the 4th of July weekend, and refer to this article about guns and play. We dive into a bit of what it means for children and boys specifically to “play” with “toy” guns. Is it a part of developing as “boys” and having power over one another? Is this a necessary part of development? What is gun culture and can we change it in America? Would love to know what you think!

Send us any and all thoughts, we love to hear them.

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.

Our show music is from Shana Falana !!!

With Theresa calling in from her family visit in Wisconsin, she and Shana talk about what her nieces are up to, getting a feel on what it’s like to be a young girl in today’s world.

Shana shares her interview with Alison Lieber of Quiver and (formerly Team Love) where the two discussed finding the dream job, what you give up along the way, staying connected with magic, and making hard decisions.
