He discusses the process of finding a sound that best expresses an emotion, and letting it out, like we did as babies.

  • THIS WEEK:  Howard Zinn – Second Thoughts on the First Amendment.  “Congress shall make no law…abridging freedom of speech.” There it is, plain and simple:  The First Amendment to the Constitution.

Whistleblowers John Kiriakou, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and others are hounded, threatened and imprisoned by the U.S. government.  This classic Zinn program from our archives offers a fascinating and compelling account of past and present efforts to secure and expand political and social rights for workers, women and African-Americans.
