Listen:
Tonight we have international and local guests to discuss China’s waste disposal crisis, including growing protests in China this past year to oppose the construction of waste incinerators, as well as China’s role on the issue of climate change.

Guests include organizers with the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives: Huiying Zhang from China and Gigie Cruz from the Philippines, and Xiu Min Li, the China Program co-director at Pacific Environment.

Also, in celebration of poetry month this April, Preeti Mangala Shekar sits down in discussion with Pireeni Sundaralingam, Summi Kaipa and Neelanjana Banerjee, about their co-edited anthology of contemporary South Asian American poetry titled Indivisible. Find out how this incredible collection, the first of its kind, was created over a period of several years of poetic partnership.
