This Week on The Lowdown, August 21 & 25

Think massive unemployment, families without homes, catastrophic storms, a criminally large divide between rich and poor, huge numbers of angry protestors occupying public spaces, angry radicals committing acts of terror, and a government that seems utterly incapable of dealing with it all are contemporary problems? Not so. My guest the brilliant young historian Thai Jone’s new book MORE POWERFUL THAN DYNAMITE shows us how we’ve been through it all before, in 1914! Listen live, learn a lot. Tuesdays at 12:30 PM / Saturdays at 5:30 AM / Streaming on WOMR.ORG.
