Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Nov 11, 2016

So if don't like the shows where I talk a bunch, skip this one. If you don't like hearing someone talk politics, skip this one. If you don't like poetry, skip this one. If you don't like protest songs, skip this one.

If you're frightened, depressed, angry, confused or just generally uncomfortable with the US right now, listen to this show over and over and over again until you wear out the internet. I swear a lot. I read a bit of my poetry. I rant a ton.

I know I'm a straight white guy, and that means a lot of people look at me and see the enemy right now. I understand that, and you have every right to. There is a lot of hate and racism and misogyny out there today.

But I will fight for women, for people of color, for people in any shade of queerness, for immigrants, for people of any religion. We're free together, or we're all enslaved together. If that means the government wants to come and arrest my ass, so be it. But I will not be intimidated. I will not be scared. I will protect you to my last breath, and past it if I can.

Just keep this in mind - don't let them make you run, make you hide, make you be afraid. Be cautious, be wary, but do not be afraid.

We'll fight and we'll win. Be strong. I am with you.
