Making Empirically Based Knowledge Cool Again #MEBKCA-Holly Angelique, Candalyn Rade, Traci Weinstein


RadioActive is an hour long talk show hosted by Natalie Kivell, a Ph.D. candidate in Community Well-Being at the University of Miami. Each week Natalie interviews academics and/or activists from around the world who dive into critical discussions from a Community Psychology lens aimed specifically at addressing structural inequality and the root causes of our complex social problems. The show aims to provoke listeners to think differently about social change and social justice to help shift how we think, act and react to social change efforts in our research and practice.

RadioActive airs every Sunday at 6pm on out of the University of Miami student radio station.

RadioActive goes on tour to Harrisburg, PA! Guest this week include Dr. Candalyn Rade, Dr. Holly Angelique and Dr. Traci Weinstein who make up the Community Psychology and Social Change Program at Penn State Harrisburg. Together we not only created what is most certainly a viral hashtag (or bumper sticker motto!) #MEBKCA – Make Empirically Based Knowledge Cool Again, we also share with listeners an accessible conversation on what is Community Psychology, and what value Community Psychology adds to our communities and society in the current socio political context. As we dare to #MEBKA we put together an hour of conversation and fun digging into some of the big questions of how research can and should address structural injustices, critically reflect on our own roles as academics and continue find ways to think and do outside of the box of traditional academic scholarship.
