TRAILER TALK is a public conversation that always includes many more people during both the live event and the recorded audio program than can be included on these pages. Only a portion of the conversations and the photographs of those participating inside TRAILER TALK at my mobile kitchen table and those outside listening to the event are documented on this site. I am grateful to all of the participants during TRAILER TALK both inside and outside of the trailer. Everyone who participates in TRAILER TALK is important to both the live and the recorded audio event. Thanks so much to everyone for joining in on the conversations!


Actor Danny Glover was among those interviewed by Sabrina Artel at The National Conference for Media Reform, January 12-14, 2007 in Memphis, Tennessee. The weekend presented strategies for winning the fight for better media with over three thousand in attendance. Glover spoke about the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King JR. and his own role as an advocate for human rights. Sabrina’s other guests included the founder of the National Civil Rights Museum, Judge D’Army Bailey, Phil Donahue, Katrina survivor Jimmie Morris and Elvis Presley clothing designer Bernard Lansky.

Trailer Talk: Freedom of Speech CSNY
August 13, 2006
Bethel, New York

TRAILER TALK was located at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts during its inaugural season for the Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young "Freedom of Speech" tour. The Bethel Woods is located on the site of the original Woodstock Festival 1969 and this concert happened during the week of the 37th anniversary of Woodstock. Guests joined me for homemade brownies as we talked about the connection between the past and present: how the history of the site—which many see as the generation's defining moment—connects with our current political and cultural situation.

  29th District NY State Senator Tom Duane joins me to speak out against President Bush and his administration after the concert.
  An enlisted soldier joins me during intermission to speak about his confusion over current foreign policy and told me that when he was deployed in Iraq for fifteen months the only reason he had a bullet proof shield was because his mother, an elementary school teacher, bought one for him for $550.
  I speak to concert goers after the CSNY concert.



Trailer Talk: Juneteenth
June 17th, 2006
Monticello, New York

Dating back to 1865, Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. L. Monique, a spoken word artist and the organizer of the Juneteenth Celebration, joins me along with many other guests at the Community Center in Monticello, NY in Sullivan County.

  Sabrina speaks with Juneteenth producer, spoken word artist and "poetess" L. Monique.



Trailer Talk: No Power Lines
May 18, 2006
Delaware Valley Youth Center, Callicoon, New York

Over 400 people gathered to overwhelmingly protest NYRI’s proposal to run Power Lines along 73.4 miles of the Delaware River. It seems to be on its way to becoming a national test case over eminent domain as the State and Federal governments debate this attempt by a private company to use a designated and annexed Wild and Scenic Rivers Act location for their private business. I spoke with over 25 residents of the area including politicians Senator John Bonacic, Assemblymember Aileen Gunther and Congessmember Maurice Hinchey’s office about their opposition to and mobilization to fight this attempt by NYRI to profit in other people’s backyards while destroying the environment and the quality of life in the region. In addition I spoke with many residents of the area including artist Ramona Jan.
