In this hour with songwriter and author, Robb Johnson, we talk about school, parenting, being quarantined with children, the history of education, tour cancellations, viral pandemics and other exciting subjects. Robb has a new book out on PM Press titled The People’s Republic Of Neverland: The Child versus the State.
David Rovics has been called the musical voice of the progressive movement in the US. Since the mid-90’s, Rovics has spent most of his time on the road, playing hundreds of shows every year throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Japan. He has shared the stage regularly with leading intellectuals, activists, politicians, musicians and celebrities. In recent years he’s added children’s music and essay-writing to his repertoire. More importantly, he’s really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, and he will make the revolution irresistible.
