The Western Reserve – Episode 036

NOTE: This was recorded during the Covid-19 Pandemic, but before the events of this week related to the murder of George Floyd by 4 Minneapolis police officers. While recognizing that this is just a small Ohio music podcast on a far-flung website I still feel it is important to use the platform I have to express my full and complete solidarity with those across the country protesting the killing of black people in this country by the police. Please consider doing what you can to lift up the voices in your community that need to be heard. And if you are so inclined, please donate a few bucks to the Columbus Freedom Fund, The Bail Project, Black Lives Matter, or any other organization that is helping in this fight. They need your support, and every little bit helps. And around here at The Western Reserve this is a great time to mention that we are really big fans the Zinn Education Project too.
