This Week with David Rovics

The podcast is a combination of audio essays, musical events, and interviews conducted by me, that can also be viewed live on the Facebook pages of Popular Resistance, KBOO Community Radio, and various other platforms every weekday at 10 am Pacific Time (they get turned into podcasts just after they’re over).  You can subscribe to the podcast by searching for This Week with David Rovics wherever you get your podcasts, by downloading the free David Rovics mobile app for iOs or Android.  I also put out a regular podcast of songs (with a little introductory context) related to this date in history — Song For Today.


I also post This Week with David Rovics on Soundcloud.

Other platforms you can find the podcast on each week include Spotify, YouTube, iTunes and Stitcher.

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.
