  • Cancel Culture Conundrums May 3, 2021
    Or, what it's like to be a "known holocaust-denying anti-Semite who is known to harass the homeless community"Cancel culture is at a crossroads, seems to me.  And I might as well be at the center of it.  If I wasn't before, I appear to be now. But what is cancel culture?  Isn't that a rightwing term used to excuse bigoted behavior an […]
  • Driving While Normative April 27, 2021
    The new movie, Nomadland, is getting a lot of attention lately.  I still haven't seen it, but I have spent probably most of my adult life living out of a vehicle in one way or another, and in the course of the pandemic depression or whatever this has been, I encounter more people than ever now who are doing so today.As I talk to friends and hear press r […]
  • "They're Dirty" -- Standing Up At Kelly Butte April 24, 2021

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).


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.

And the Critics Raved…

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