    Tales of the Resistance Vol. 2: Persistence - 10 - Back To The Way Things Were

    September 5, 2021 - Episode 10

    "Back To The Way Things Were"

    An original musical! Don’t we all wish we could just go back to normal? Back to the way things used to be - before Covid, before the floods and wildfires, before we had Nazis rioting in the streets and in the Capitol, before the news was full of racist cops and sexually abusive men and greedy corporatists, and before four years of a honey-baked ham-brained criminal in the White House? Doesn’t that sound nice… or does it? Before we try to revive the good old days maybe we should ask - was the old normal really that good? Was it good at all? Well we created a musical about that! So settle back as we present a trip down reality lane with “Back To The Way Things Were”.

    Tales of the Resistance Vol. 2: Persistence - 09 - Housing For All: A Discussion of Housing & Equity

    August 29, 2021 - Episode 9

    "Housing for All"

    In major cities across the country, residents have been forced out of their home at alarming rates, even before the pandemic. How do seemingly progressive cities still struggle to provide housing for all, and what are activists doing to help? Building on our previous episode, Hobos in Space, this discussion takes a look at housing and equity in San Francisco. We'll talk to Mime Troupe collective member Marie Cartier about her artistic process and scholar Erin McElroy about their work mapping evictions in the Bay Area and their new book, Counterpoints: A San Francisco Bay Area Atlas.

    Produced by Will McCandless, Kari Barclay, and the San Francisco Mime Troupe.

    Hosted by Kari Barclay and edited by Will McCandless with special guests:
