An Act of Resistance (Podcast)

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Chicago literary celebrity Ben Tanzer this past Tuesday at the famous Billy Goat tavern. We discussed racism, anti-Semitism, refugee culture, victim mentality, perpetration of atrocities, acts of resistance and paths to convalescence.

The result is this podcast.  Hope you’ll check it out.

Dariya Marchenko: Art from Ammunition

Here’s the brilliant Dariya Marchenko making a humanitarian statement on the continued atrocities perpetrated by Vladimir Putin. This Reuters report should leave you provoked and moved. Daria assembles a portrait of Putin from bullet cartridges collected from the front lines of the war in Ukraine, and the art is being presented in conjunction with a novel (which I’d very much like to read).

Please share this report.
