Politics is Local


Politcs Is Local

The three stories on this program remind us that politics is local.

On Tuesday November 6th Americans will vote in midterm elections, which inspired us to put together a program perfect for listening to on your way to the polls. Be a proud voter!!!!


Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe uses gentle humor to make his point in his story performed by Arthur French. Humorist Simon Rich hilariously proves nothing is sacred (yet again) in a story read by comedian Wyatt Cenac. Finally, a feisty voter gets the last word in“Taking Ms. Kezee to the Polls,” by David Haynes, read by Michael Genét.
