  • The Politics of Moral Outrage December 1, 2021
    It's December, and I suddenly feel compelled to engage in a little end-of-the-year reflection.It seems like a good moment for a little reflection on the the past couple years.  A lot has happened, and a lot hasn't.  What has happened, among other things, has been a whole lot of police brutality, racially-motivated killings by police, a whole lot of […]
  • Tigard, Oregon: Ground Zero in the Fight for Affordable Housing October 10, 2021
    I was born on Manhattan Island, now one of the most expensive places on Earth.  I grew up in a nearby suburb in Connecticut, a town I couldn't dream of affording to live in today, even if I wanted to.  As a young adult, I lived in Boston, Seattle, and San Francisco, among other places.  As I lived in these cities, from month to month I could see the nei […]
  • What 9/11 Derailed September 5, 2021

Sharing the Podcast

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

Can a 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.
