Today, Joe is by himself, and he opens the show with a reading of an article from August of 1993 that was printed in a small independent rag called PDXS. The article was entitled "Wake Up And Smell The Boot Polish," and warned us of a pending Fascist State looming on the horizon. Amazingly, the article could have been written yesterday, and inspired quite the flurry of calls.
This Old Mole episode is hosted by Denise Morris (pictured here), and features discussions of how the system limits the actions of Presidents; two movies about mothers and sons; whether "Hell is other people" (as a line in Sartre's play No Exit has it); and whether the right to marry is what LGBT people should be fighting for.
Host Crystal Leighty speaks with Leigh Knox about Awakening the Dreamer...Changing the Dream is a unique 4 hour symposium developed by the Pachamama Alliance, a not-for-profit organization inspired by indigenous elders of the Amazon rain forest and their friends in North America.
