This is a Podcast and the mission is to carve out a place in the open source broadcasting world where we can explore our relationship with art and entertainment as it shapes and informs the many modalities of the human experience. Music identifies and shapes culture, can move us to tears, force us on our feet to dance, captures people’s attention to tell a story, embellish moments in theater. Music is a universal language, where we paint with the dimension of time as the medium, breaching the boundaries which language naturally sets. Yet, culture has other effects.  It will drive the social apparatus of violence, more commonly refereed to as government.  We will examine the relationship between culture and politics to better understand how these two phenomena work in concert.
