Ugh

I really looked forward to this and loved the guests featured on the latest episode but I hated so much to hear the host interrupt the people who called in. Let them talk and then EDIT like all the best podcasts do. I had second hand embarrassment and couldn’t finish the episode. Yikes!

Beverly Glenn - Copeland ❤️

I found Death Sex and Money through the podcast In The Thick. Maria Hinjosa recommended it, and I am so glad I decided to listen.

The January 27, 2021 episode with composer Beverly Glenn-Copeland is one I highly recommend. He is in touch with so many aspects of the emotional complexities that makes humanity worth fighting for. Plus, his music is so diverse in nature, and has a magical feel to it.

Thanks!
