Josh Kornbluth: Josh's Brain Improvs

Dementia statistics  are daunting. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimers or other dementia;  every 66 seconds someone in the US develops the disease. Monologist Josh Kornbluth has immersed himself in this realm, and incorporates his experience in "Josh's Brain Improvs", a coproduction with The Marsh theater in San Francisco.

Kornbluth bases his series of improvisations on his experiences working at the Memory and Aging Center at UCSF and Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, and his work as an artist-in-residence and volunteer at the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco.

Josh Kornbluth has performed autobiographical one-man shows since 1987 -- The San Francisco Chronicle declared, Kornbluth takes a world we ignore, or barely  observe, and brings it into brilliant comic relief. Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - NOON
IMMIGRATION: REAL POLITICS, REAL PEOPLE

Donald Trump's changes to immigration policy, initially supported by a majority of Americans, have faced steadily increasing disapproval. Despite that, the administration has moved to widen scrutiny to include tourists, business travelers and relatives of American residents. All this, even as construction contractors bid for contracts to build a wall on America's southern border.

From its initial Muslim-targeting efforts thrown out by a court, to a second version designed to circumvent those objections, to this latest expansion - what are the real goals of the administration's policies? Are they equitably applied? Can they be? And away from the airports, the borders and the courtrooms, how do the policies play out in the real lives of laborers in America?

In Deep takes a two-pronged approach this hour, with guests Terri Givens and Gabriel Thompson. Terri Givens is provost of Menlo College, and an authority on immigration policy and its impact. Gabriel Thompson is the editor of an upcoming oral history documenting the stories of migrant workers in California; Chasing the Harvest: Migrant Workers in California Agriculture will be released this Spring.

CORK DORK: A Wine-Fueled Adventure

More Americans are drinking wine than ever before, yet the rituals, customs, and language around it are as rarefied and opaque as ever, leaving many of us wondering what all the fuss is about. What makes the bottle I bought for last weeks dinner party bad? Are sommeliers just pretentious, glorified salespeople, or can they actually taste things like pyrazine and honeysuckle in wine? And why do so many people devote their lives (or life savings) to experiencing minute differences in flavor that most of us cant even perceive, let alone appreciate?  Bianca Bosker gave up her job as executive tech editor at the Huffington Post in favor of tasting wines at 8 a.m., lifting and sorting heavy bottles as a cellar rat in one of Manhattans top restaurants; she sacrificed coffee, spicy foods, and sometimes even toothpaste, so as not to blunt her taste buds.

Bianca Bosker is an award-winning journalist who has written about food, wine, architecture, and technology for The New Yorker online, The Atlantic, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Food & Wine, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and The New Republic. She's is the author of the critically acclaimed book Original Copies: Architectural Mimicry in Contemporary China. She lives in New York City.
