Thank you for sharing this and introducing me to this writer! I’m still getting used to the idea that I can listen to radio shows online so usually don’t end up noticing most but this show consistently introduces interesting and important ideas, writers, activists, and music. I hope you will all click this one, check it out and share it. 🙂
