12:00pm - Prisons, Profits, Principles

The Department of Justice is detaching from contracts with private incarceration companies. Prison activists laud the beginning of the end of prison profitization - but of course the practice isn't restricted to the federal government. States and counties guarantee up to 90% capacity in the contracts they sign with private companies. In Deep will look first at the "prison industrial complex" - but will go deeper than that. We'll consider larger issues of morality and profit. Our daily life is awash in the conflict between what's best, and what's profitable. We've seen conflict between consumer health and insurance companies' bottom lines . Concern is growing worldwide over privitization of clean water. War profits have always been controversial. On the other hand, we all need food to live, and grocery stores are a legitimate, normal part of American life, charging money for sustenance. When is a profit-centered model appropriate in a given market - and who gets to make that call? Is that a strictly philosophical consideration, or should it have real-world impact on market regulation? How do the answers play out in other democracies? Guests include: (one confirmed, more pending:) Dr. Debra Satz, Stanford University - Marta Sutton Weeks Professor of Ethics in Society, Professor of Philosophy and, by courtesy, Political Science; and Senior Associate Dean for the Humanities and Arts

In Deep is on hiatus until October 19, 2016

12:00pm - Jewelle Gomez

Before Buffy, before Twilight, before Octavia Butler's Fledgling, there was The Gilda Stories, Jewelle Gomez's sexy vampire novel. This remarkable novel begins in 1850s Louisiana, where Gilda escapes slavery and learns about freedom while working in a brothel. After being initiated into eternal life as one who "shares the blood" by two women there, Gilda spends the next two hundred years searching for a place to call home. An instant lesbian classic when it was first published in 1991, The Gilda Stories has endured as an auspiciously prescient book in its explorations of blackness, radical ecology, re-definitions of family, and yes, the erotic potential of the vampire story. The winner of two Lambda Literary Awards (fiction and science fiction) THE GILDA STORIES is a very American odyssey. The 2016 anniversary edition has a new forward by Alexis Pauline Gumbs, one of UTNE Reader's 50 Visionaries Transforming the World, a Reproductive Reality Check Shero, a Black Woman Rising nominee, and winner of one of the first-ever "Too Sexy for 501c3" trophies. Jewelle Gomez is a writer, activist, and the author of many books including Forty-Three Septembers, Don't Explain, The Lipstick Papers, Flamingoes and Bears, and Oral Tradition. The Gilda Stories was the recipient of two Lambda Literary Awards, and was adapted for the stage by the Urban Bush Women theater company in thirteen United States cities.

In Deep with Angie Coiro

Live From Kepler's Books every Wednesday!

Come see us record our broadcast/podcast show at Menlo Park’s venerable Kepler’s Books, a community home to discourse and ideas for sixty years.

In Deep began as The Angie Coiro Show on the San Francisco radio dial in 2009. It's evolved into a syndicated show heard across the country. We cast a sharp, inquisitive eye on America’s cultural underpinnings: politics, art, and society. We bring you good conversations that matter, with heart and a sense of humor.

Kepler’s tradition is right in line with our own. The store was founded by a peace activist in 1955. It provided an early home for the Grateful Dead, and held social and political salons that prefigured its current packed slate of events. With partner Peninsula Arts and Letters, Kepler’s has created a vibrant community for thought-provoking dialogue and smart entertainment.

We’re glad you’re listening. And we’d love to see you at Kepler’s! Most shows are free. The occasional Premium Shows carry a $10 charge. Reservations for both are available via our Kepler’s ticket page.

Show and guest suggestions are always welcome. Send us an email, visit our Facebook page, or reach out via Twitter.

See you at Kepler’s!
