Episode Details

First aired: September 15, 2017.

Dreams and defiance. This week on The Laura Flanders show we are joined by award winning playwright and essayist Wally Shawn, who has a new book of essays he calls his Night Thoughts, meditations and speculative dreams for a better world from the Tales of Genji to libraries and the power of fiction. And Ed Whitfield, from The Fund for Democratic Communities in Greensboro, North Carolina, has a few thoughts on cooperatives, consumer politics and impeachments. All that and a commentary from Laura on monuments - where are the monuments to the motley crew?
