    American Histories

    American Histories

    One of our heroes Barbara Ehrenreich passed away earlier this year. She was one of America’s best undercover journalists. We once spoke with her about her book Bright Sided, her journey into the heart of American darkness:  the  positive thinking industry. Also we hear from an ex clan member who reveals the secret of the twinkling cross. Plus your host wonders “what would the founders do”

    Not going back to normal (a conversation with Jeremiah Moss author of Feral City)

    Not going back to normal (a conversation with Jeremiah Moss author of Feral City)

    Jeremiah Moss’s Feral City is much much more than a Covid memoir. In many ways it is a continuation of his desire to understand how and why New York city has changed,  and if there is still a place for outsiders or if it now belongs to what he calls “the new people.” We walked around our Neighborhood together to talk about what the city was like during Covid time and what the phrase “go back to normal” really means.

    Please contribute to the 2022 Radiotopia fundraiser.

Works!

New listener and thoroughly enjoying the topics. Plus, Benjamin is one of a very few hosts whose voice is easy to listen to and wraps you in. I’m in.

Come Up for Air

3 Stars How come the host ALWAYS sounds so astonished and horny? No matter what he’s talking about it’s like he’s saying it while he’s losing his virginity. Unnerving.

Im trying to withhold judgment though cuz I can’t tell if it’s a seriously annoying affectation or if he’s got a vocal chord disease.

All in all his staccato cadence is enough to make me wanna just read the transcript instead. 🤷🏼‍♂️

One of the very best!!!

Thank you Benjamen Walker!
