I opened with Both Sides Now in honor of Joni Mitchell’s birthday. We then heard Ava Bird reading some of her work, very powerful. The Government is there for you! Riiiiight. I then read some of Mike Palecek’s work… I miss having him on the show.

The second segment featured Philip Farruggio. Starting with his column “The Circus Never Left” we proceeded into a discussion focusing mostly on healthcare.

The third segment started with Azzurra Crispino discussing her friend in Ohio . She then added Mark Clement to tell us about the ongoing Rodney Reed case. 5124631782 stop the execution! Then we had Frank Cordaro, and a small correction sent in by listener Lissa Welborn.

The final segment featured Karen Kwiatkowski with her usual sharp insight into politics, elections, and life in America. She had some very interesting comments about her home state, Virginia.
