Subject – Please Don’t Bomb the Suburbs
Author – Billy “Upski” Wimsatt
This is an encore episode, first aired Aug 13, 2011.
Equal parts hip-hop memoir, razor-sharp analysis of the current political climate, and self-help manual for the progressive movement, Please Don’t Bomb the Suburbs: A Midterm Report on My Generation and the Future of Our Super Movement (Akashic) hits bookstores this fall. Considering the author is venerated political organizer Billy Wimsatt, it’s no surprise that the release date is just ahead of the November 2 midterm election.
