In this freewheeling episode much ground is covered. Brad as an author and tour guide though the madness of the 60s and 70s had a chat with me about Charles Manson and crew in addition to Donald DeFreeze of the Symbionese Liberation Army - famous for kidnapping Patty Hearst and perishing in a giant shootout in Los Angeles.
We then talk about the revolutionaries covered in his latest book "Music is Power: Popular Songs, Social Justice, and the Will to Change." This interview is pop-culture catnip and I had a blast chatting.
