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.

  • Diary of a Smoke Refugee September 20, 2020
    As Arun Gupta tweeted the other day, “Pardon the catastrophic global warming, we now return you to your regularly scheduled state violence.”It's been quite a week here in Oregon. I know there are plenty of other horrors happening in the world. The invisible ones are the worst. Like tens of millions of children in the US going to bed hungry every night i […]
  • Eviction Abolition: The Time Is Now September 4, 2020
     It's the beginning of the month. Do you know your neighbors?I have several questions for you. Can you imagine a society where the prospect of a forced eviction is considered completely barbaric, and is virtually or entirely unheard of in practice? Can you imagine the United States becoming one of those societies? And have you joined a local community g […]

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.
