Dale concludes his eighth enlightening season, with a few thoughts on responsibility and what’s ailing the world at this moment. While ever-optimistic about the future (and about to enter a deep freeze for the summer months), Dale begins to wonder about the dangers of building a new Noah’s Ark in coal mining country; what it means to include dinosaurs on that Ark; the puzzling absence of people of color in the fantasy realm; and ways we can all do better to affirm our ally status to those in need of support. He also reports back from a major podcast festival in Chicago and thanks his many guests and listeners who have joined him throughout the season. This episode features short musical clips from Alexa Wilding’s latest EP Wolves, available via itunes or other fine purveyors of musical offerings.
Dale loves bringing the work of these talented individuals to you and he hopes you’ll enjoy checking out their work and supporting their many creative endeavors. Buy their books, see their movies, watch their shows, listen to their podcasts, and download their albums. You can’t go wrong with this group!
