  • Anarchists For Bernie February 14, 2020
    A Sanders presidency is a long shot -- and it might also be our only shot.Since only recently discovering the social media platform, Reddit, I have been posting various things to various sub-Reddits, depending on the subject matter of whatever I'm posting. Knowing it was possibly going to be considered unwelcome on the very popular Anarchism sub-Reddit, […]
  • PDX: Taking City Hall February 8, 2020
    If Chloe Eudaly can keep her seat, and Margot Black wins hers, we could have a pro-worker, pro-renter majority in the Portland City Council.What is a city?  I mean, what is a city for?  That, of course, depends on who you ask.  For most rich people, for real estate speculators and developers, cities are their main source of income.  Cities are places where m […]
  • An Australian tourist, a Bulgarian prison, and a recording session December 9, 2019

Supporting the Podcast

This podcast, like everything else I do, as supported by members of my Community-Supported Art program.  But one-time donations are also most appreciated, and there are now various exclusive rewards available for those making such donations (with steep discounts for CSA members).

WAYS TO DONATE

Sharing the Podcast

“It’s not folk music unless the folk are singing it.”

Can a short weekly podcast change the world, or at least have a real impact on society?  Yes, it can, is my unequivocal response to that question.  So can music, and many other things.  But only if people hear it.  If you like this podcast, please share it with at least one friend — preferably many friends.  Do you know anyone with a radio show, or who works as a Program Director for a community radio station?  Know anyone who has a podcast, a blog, or who writes for any kind of online or print publication?  Know any producers who work for Pacifica, BBC or CBC?  Anyone who can introduce the podcast to a new audience, whether it’s one new person or thousands of listeners to a popular radio show, podcast or other broadcast, is appreciated — by me and hopefully by lots of other people as well.

And the Critics Raved…

It’s informative and inspirational, and well worth listening to.
