Episode: Rebels Remixed
We’ve all got a little bit of rebel in us …
For the last show of the semester, we’ve combined stories from our live taping at UnionDocs (322 Union Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn) last Friday with totally new stories. The theme is rebels. We’ll hear about rebelling through different stages of life, rejecting technology, personal rebel stories and rebellion in science. We’ll also talk to drag queen Vivika Westwood, hear a comedy set from Calvin Cato and hear the music of Renee Manning. Also, Dana Herz, our musical guest for today, will join us for a live set in the studio.
