Bill tells us more about his pending new place of employment, the hotly anticipated Florence Pie Bar. Jaz talks about New Century Theatre’s fantastic production of Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play, running through Saturday, August 8th. Definitely go see it. Plus, Bill learns a new word that Jaz definitely did not make up.
Friend of the show Bill Scher stops by to talk about his latest piece for Politico, the value Bernie brings to the presidential race, and what a winning strategy might look like. Also, Bill and Jaz discuss the damage caused by Bill Cosby’s “moral authority.”
Since we last talked, it feels like the whole country has been on the most intense emotional roller coaster. We reflect on the grief, hatred, and, yes, stupidity that has erupted around the murder of nine people in Charleston; we celebrate the SCOTUS ruling on marriage equality, and acknowledge that there is still more work to do; and closer to home, we applaud the confirmation and swearing in of Jody Kasper as Northampton’s first woman police chief. Also, Jaz has a suggestion for Pat Boone.
