You can hear the current and past episodes at fireontheprairie.com On this episode: Join Aaron Sarver for a conversation with Howard Zinn—historian, writer and activist. Zinn has just published a companion volume to his seminal A People’s History of the United States, titled Voices of a People’s History of the United States. Emily Udell interviews Marjane Satrapi, author and illustrator of the best-selling graphic memois Persepolis I and Pereseplois II. Satrapi has just published a new book called Embroideries. And hear Chicagoans respond to a recent Time magazine article’s claim that their mayor Richard M. Daley is one of the top five in the nation.
Be one of the first
Help kick off the new era of In These Times! Without a media that brings people together and creates a written record of the struggles of workers, their voices will be fragmented and forgotten.
The mission of In These Times is to be that written record, and to guide and grow those movements.
We have a lot of work ahead of us, and that work starts today. Early support is the most valuable support, and that’s why we’re asking you to pitch in now. If you are excited for this new era of In These Times, please make a donation today.
