Meet Heather McTeer Toney.. the National Field Director at Moms Clean Air Force, which fights for climate safety to protect our children's health. She shares how her two terms as the first African-American, first female and youngest mayor of Greenville, MS helps her be an even more effective activist, and what one thing motivates people to make big changes.

On the February 4th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about today’s leading social movements. 

NPR is making some changes to the Morning Edition broadcast clock that mean you'll be hearing some of KALW's morning features at new times.

Starting Monday, November 17th, Jim Hightower's commentaries will air at 7:31am.  And 99% Invisible and Sandip Roy's Dispatches from Kolkata, which now air at 7:35am, will be heard at 7:45am.

It's an amazing world.  It used to be that whatever life served you that's what you got.  You didn't like your nose, skin, class or gender?  Too damn bad.   But times have changed and nothing is fixed.  If you don't like what you see in the mirror, start anew.  But are there limits?  Are there boundaries, internal or external?  How much can you really change and how much can you demand the universe change for you? 

Stories of our plastic selves on this week's Snap Judgment, Sunday at 3pm and Wednesday at 1pm.
