On tonight’s show, we broadcast excerpts from a conversation between Gopal Dayaneni and Dr. Vandana Shiva.  It was part of an event held in Berkeley last month called Seeding Labs, Ceding Seeds: Regional and Global Impacts of the Biotech Bonanza.

World renowned environmental philosopher and activist Vandana Shiva illuminates the corporate assault on biological and cultural diversity and helps us connect the dots: What is the East Bay “Green Corridor,” who is creating it, and what does it mean for communities here and around the globe?

Don’t forget, we’re in fund drive at KPFA, so show us your support tonight by making a contribution.  Give us a call at 510-848-5732 or 1-800-HEY-KPFA.
