Worthy Women Series. What do a mortician, dancer, mother and writer have in common? Not much, unless you are talking about Elizabeth Fournier. The local writer and occasional KBOO volunteer spoke with Dennise Kowalczyk about her life and her experiences that led to her first published book.
Hosted by Bill Resnick, this show features Afrobeat music by Fela Kuti and a conversation about Kuti's life and work. The show leads off with a critique of the economic stimulus plan: "insufficient, ineffective, ill-conceived" are the words of economist Michael Perlman. Well-read Red Frann Michel reviews how people of color and immigrants are faring in, and even being blamed for, the economic crisis. We hear from another economist about urban agriculture in Havana and other Cuban cities. To hear the whole show, use the arrow above.
