Old Mole Variety Hour for February 2, 2009
Hosted by labor historians Laurie Mercier and Norm Diamond, this Old Mole show focuses on the great Seattle General Strike of 1919. Norm and Laurie discuss this model of workers power, not just to shut a city down, but to run it without bosses. Bill Resnick talks with Rob Rosenthal about Rosenthal's rock opera Seattle 1919. Also on this program, we hear a review by Denise Morris and Chris Land of a locally made film about gender transition, Switch: A Community in Transition.
