Latest Podcast Episodes
016 | A Bad Case of the Wobblies feat. Jess Walter
Spokane’s favorite son comes on the pod and talks about his new best-seller, the Cold Millions, a hilarious, moving novel about a deadly serious fight for workers rights set in an almost unbelievably lavish and wild Spokane, circa 1909. Featuring Walter’s now trademark of real historical figures chumming it up with his fictional creations, it’s a bawdy, thrilling lesson in labor history with lots to say about the world today.
017 | Election Special | Going to Extremes with Kate Bitz
Western States Center's Kate Bitz joins us to talk about the ever-percolating threat of white nationalism, it's roots stretching back to the founding of our nation and the settling of the Inland Northwest, why it's such a uniquely pernicious problem here, and how this history of hate might affect the election and how a Biden victory might embolden extremists the way the Clinton presidency did.
That’s it for now.
Stay safe, take care of each other this week, and oh yeah:
