Music fans, enthusiast, and listeners may appreciate this latest PodCast. EarToTheStreets had a chance to catch Mr. Thomas Brown, Portland's premiere street drummer who travels all over the city and most of the state to perform for fans leaving their favorite sporting events like the Portland Trailblazers, Oregon Ducks, and Oregon Beavers.

Whenever we envision a world without war, prisons, or capitalism, we are producing speculative fic-tion. Organizers and activists envision, and try to create, such worlds all the time. Walidah Imarisha and adrienne maree brown have brought 20 of them together in the first anthology of short stories to explore the connections between radical speculative fiction and movements for social change. These visionary tales span genres, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, magical realism, but all are united by an attempt to inject a healthy dose of imagination and innovation into our political practice and to try on new ways of understanding ourselves, the world around us, and all the selves and worlds that could be.
