Fresh audio product
First there was a vacation, then some fundraising at KPFA, and then some delay on my part—but finally some fresh material posted to my radio archives.
But first, a word to our sponsors. If you like these shows and want to keep them coming, then please support KPFA. I doubt I’d continue doing them if it weren’t for KPFA, and KPFA does a lot of great broadcasting for the other 167 hours of the week: Support KPFA… Online!
Ok, now the shows:
August 15, 2013 Thomas Sugrue, author of The Origins of the Urban Crisis: Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroit, on the long history behind that city’s bankruptcy filing • Alfred Blumstein on crime and punishment stats
August 8, 2013 Penny Lewis, author of Hardhats, Hippies, and Hakws: The Vietnam Antiwar Movement as Myth and Memory,on how elites didn’t oppose that war and the working class didn’t support it, and what that means today
