Becca Bartleson interviews Linda Faillance, author of Mad Sheep: The True Story Behind the USDA’s War on a Family Farm. Her account of a government cover-up, corporate greed, and a courageous family’s fight to save their farm.
This month's theme is Women Teaching Women. We'll visit the Rock and Roll Camp for
Girls, to talk with the women who run the program and some of the girls who have learned to rock out there. We'll also hear from Johanna Brenner, a professor at Portland State University who helped to found In Other Words Women's Books and Resources, one of the only nonprofit, feminist bookstores in the country. It's a great show chock full of inspiring women's voices. And if you're a dude, remember, feminism is for everybody. An excerpt from this show was also featured on the NPR Station Showcase. As always, you can find out more info about past and future shows, podcasts and downloads by visiting Julie on the Radio. Thanks for listening!
