Community Revitalization- the anti-institutional show, December 27 2012

Listen to Audio: : 

Community Revitalization is a two hour show that includes the daily grrr segment. We explore our topics through an anti-institutional lens. We question technique and the mechanization of human interactions.
We report on injustices and resistance. We try to bring some sort of levity to the table when we can, as we more often attempt to uncover the inner workings of hatred and oppression. We seek to undo hatred and oppression through telling the news and providing critical analysis.
We often present interviews or recorded speeches with folks that we believe are doing important and creative work.
Lots of great music to heal and sustain us, including Richard Garvey's beautiful song 'Shalom' as our theme.
