'Shit & Champagne - A Whitesploitation Comedy'

Robbie Sweeny

  

Shit & Champagne and Oasis.  Meet the man behind a show we can't name on public radio airwaves: Shit & Champagne - A Whitesploitation Comedy with Dance.  D'Arcy Drollinger is an actor, dancer, playwright, director and choreographer of many shows, and wrote and stars in Shit & Champagne, now at San Francisco's new bar and queer performance space, Oasis. Drollinger is also a partner in the new club, which opened New Year's Eve, and says its cabaret-style showroom and stage are "a dream come true" in this interview with Out in the Bay's Eric Jansen, 7pm PST Thursday 1/15. You'll also hear clips from S&C, and about D'Arcy's life, career and his weekly dance class for all ages, genders, shapes and abilities, Sexitude. (Eric goes, you can too!)

Your Call: What makes an effective corporate pressure campaign?

  

On the August 14th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation about how people power can make big companies change their ways.  Walgreens recently bowed to public pressure to remain in the US after considering moving overseas, and Oxfam successfully pushed General Mills to cut greenhouse gas emissions. What tactics work? How have the emergence of social media and the sheer size of multinationals changed what it takes to win? Join the conversation on Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Non-union organizing

Today on Your Call: How do you organize without a union?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about effective organizing tactics for non-union workers.    Internal Walmart documents show that the company fears employee uprisings. They have no collective bargaining power. Are their tactics working?  What can we learn from their actions and those of other non-unionized workforces?  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  Have you organized on the workplace without being in a union? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
