Massasoit was the leader of the Wampanoag Confederacy when English settlers landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. He and his people kept the Pilgrims from starving in the early years of their settlement, attended the first Thanksgiving and forged a peace treaty with the English that lasted 40 years until his death. Peace Talks Radio talks with American Indian scholars Darius Coombs and Bob Charlesbois who’ll fill in the details of this Native American leader’s attempt to make peace for his people and with the new strangers. Also, Native American film director Chris Eyre on his portrayal of Massasoit for the 2009 PBS television series We Shall Remain.

In honor of Flag Day and the Fourth of July, the Smithsonian unveils the often misunderstood stories behind two of our nation’s most famous flags: the Betsy Ross flag, and the Star Spangled Banner.
Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag. At least, that’s what we were taught in school. But when historians go searching…there’s no proof to be found. So how did this story get started? In this special hour-long episode of the Smithsonian’s Sidedoor podcast, we unravel the Revolutionary history behind this vexillogic tall tale. In the process, we learn that the real Betsy Ross was anything but the mild mannered seamstress we think we know. And we discover the work of the women behind another of America’s most famous flags: the Star Spangled Banner.

Sidedoor is a production of the Smithsonian Institution. More than 155 million treasures fill the Smithsonian’s vaults, but where public view ends, Sidedoor begins. With the help of biologists, artists, historians, archaeologists, zookeepers, and astrophysicists, host Lizzie Peabody sneaks listeners through Smithsonian’s side door to search for stories that can’t be found anywhere else.
Spotlight on the Confusion of Covering Mental Health Care will help make sense of what kind of mental health care is supposed to be covered, and how health plans, regulators and you can make it easier to get the therapy you need.
This critical, dynamic hour-long program will provide personal and policy examples of how individual efforts, state action, insurance practices and policy can improve on existing federal and state parity laws so more people can get much-needed care that is too-often denied. Reported stories will explain what mental health parity is supposed to look like for various conditions and what’s being done to improve enforcement. Personal stories will reveal the impact of being denied substance use and eating disorder care and the complications people and their families are forced to navigate during a crisis.
Featured guests include:
Ali Khawar – Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employee Benefits Security Administration
Pamela Greenberg – President and CEO at the Association for Behavioral Health and Wellness
Patrick Kennedy – former U.S. Representative (D-RI), founder of The Kennedy Forum

In various cultures around the world, human identity cannot be separated from our nonhuman kin. The landscapes we call home — grasslands and forests, mountains and rocks, rivers and oceans — are shared by nonhuman beings who may be considered relatives. Age-old myths and modern science reinforce these kinship relationships. From forest ecology to the human microbiome, emerging research suggests that being human is a complicated journey made possible only by the good graces of our many companions.
In partnership with the Center for Humans and Nature and with support from the Kalliopeia Foundation, Wisconsin Public Radio’s To The Best Of Our Knowledge is exploring this theme of “kinship” in a special radio series. Leading scientists, philosophers and writers illuminate ways in which “personhood” transcends the human species and shows how kinship practices can deepen our care and respect for the more-than-human world.
Airs Saturday mornings at 9am during the month of April 2022.
