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 wvum.org out of the University of Miami student radio station.
We all have moments in our lives that speak to us, that move us in unexpected ways. One of these moments for Natalie, the host of RadioActive, was an address given at the 2015 Society for Community Research and Action Biennial conference. Gina Langhout, a scholar and community psychologist, delivered her address entitled – This is not a history lesson; this is agitation: A call for a methodology of diffraction in U.S.-based community psychology. Her speech was framed as a rallying call to the field in Community Psychology (and perhaps academic spaces more generally). Natalie and Gina created an adapted version of her address on RadioActive!
