Dmae Roberts talks with Steffen Silvis, former theatre critic for Willamette Week. He recently returned from Prague where he's lived for four years. He describes his adventures reviewing Czech plays and remembers his time as critic in Portland.
This edition of the Old Mole is hosted by Norm Diamond (pictured here), and includes his special feature "Mystery Mole," as well as thoughtful introductions to all the other Moles' contributions. Norm also plays and comments on a song by the Nicaraguan duo Guardabarranco.
The duo Guardabarranco, consisting of sister and brother Katia Cardenal and Salvador Cardenal Barquero, emerged with the Sandanista revolution in Nicraguq. Norm Diamond plays part of "Casa Abierta" ("Open House") and translates its message hope, peace and justice. They take their name from the national bird of Nicaragua.
