13min WTUL News and Views, Access and Empowerment Series, Episode 1 features a local event “Beneath the Womb Veil: a forum on early female healthcare” from the Cachet Arts & Culture Program and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.

Rachel Speck, resident artist at Cachet, and member of New Orleans Community Print Shop, poses the question,

Looking at the historical development of pharmaceuticals it seems that there has been a tremendous shift where originally only upper class could afford pharmaceuticals, while lower class and slaves relied on herbalism and alternative practices. This changed at some point, with over the counter medicines and pharmaceuticals used heavily by the lower classes and alternative medicines used heavily by the wealthy. What do you think enabled this shift? What really do you feel happened and why?  

Panelists Kate Paxton, certified nurse midwife, Elizabeth Seleen, student of historical anthropology, working in the excavations at Storyville, and Jen Stovall, herbalist and one of the owners of Maypop Herb Shop, respond.

Welcome to a new series for WTUL News & Views called “Access and Empowerment” that sheds light on the contemporary convergence of crises through the historical enclosure of the commons and the internalized oppressions. I’m your host Nora and I’ll be offering this series to explore what feeds capitalism? Where is primitive accumulation still happening? How do we experience enclosure in our lives? How do we understand the relationship between access and empowerment? Where, and who by, is community being reproduced? What aspects of community are visible and valued? Where do internalized capitalisms show up in today’s movements? How have we come to experience capitalism in our bodies? The Access and Empowerment series by WTUL News and Views will pose these questions by talking with local community members and exploring academic texts.

WTUL News and Views, Access and Empowerment Series, Episode 1 features a local event “Beneath the Womb Veil: a forum on early female healthcare” from the Cachet Arts & Culture Program and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.

New Orleans composer Tucker Fuller, singer Mary Townsend, lyricist Elizabeth Cumming, and president and violist of Musaica Chamber Ensemble Bruce Owen stopped by WTUL to talk about Musaica’s upcoming Voices of Freedom program. The concerts, which will showcase works by Richard Stöhr and William Grant Still, will also feature the world premiere of Reading Gaol, a new work by Tucker. These concerts are Tuesday, January 27 at Munholland Methodist Church and Wednesday, January 28 at First Unitarian Universalist Church of New Orleans. Both performances begin at 7:30 pm and are open to the public.

Here, Bruce talks about the composers spotlighted in “Voices of Freedom” and the mission of Musaica, now in its ninth season, to perform unheralded works and encourage new music composition. Tucker and Elizabeth discuss how they were inspired by Oscar Wilde’s Ballad of Reading Gaol and its examination of how incarceration affects the human spirit. Mary and Tucker also talk about their career working together.

Listening today at 4:15pm (Wednesday March 4th), there was a kind of psychedelic song about summertime, but your air logs don't list the artist or title. Any help? Thank you for the good music.

This radio station is run by people whom sacrifice their own time to keep WTUL on air. I believe criticism is good, it doesn't have to be unkind. WTUL has given us years of enjoyment, the DJ's are cool, and more importantly, they play Echo & the Bunnymen when I kindly ask them to.

Thanx for the lousy Rock-on-Survival Marathon that was run last year. Not only did you absentmindedly retrieve my donation, You refused to answer on why I was not accommodated on the donor's swag. This is second radio marathon of yours that I gave to and was gipped. One year my donation was double billed, and the manager said that she could do nothing to reimburse me for the ineptness and incompetence @ your end.
