On today's Stage and Studio, I talked with Connor Kerns and Debbie Hunter who have been running Quintessence Language and Imagination Theatre concentrating on the classics and Connor's original plays. They started in 2001 and it's been a labor of love for most of this decade. Check out their interview about a new adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

This edition of the Old Mole is hosted by Tom Becker (pictured here), and its topics include the global politics of climate change, the history and role of Bitch Magazine, the right to be irate when being arrested, healthcare workers' fight for their own union, and a set of short stories about women, men, and cats.
The Old Mole's Denise Morris talks with two leading lights of Bitch Magazine -- Julie Falk, executive director, and Andi Zeisler, co-founder and editor. Bitch is "a feminist response to pop culture"-- both critical and appreciative. They discuss the history and the role of the magazine in these difficult times for print media.
