Episode 193 – Psychotically Eclectic Author Brad Schreiber
In this freewheeling episode a lot of ground gets covered as Brad Schreiber acts as both author and tour guide though the madness of the 1960's and 1970's. We also had a chat about Charles Manson and his crew, in addition to Donald DeFreeze of the Symbionese Liberation Army. Made famous for kidnapping Patty Hearst and then perishing in a giant shootout in Los Angeles.
We then talk about the revolutionaries that are covered in his latest book “Music is Power: Popular Songs, Social Justice, and the Will to Change.” This interview is a real pop-culture catnip and I had a blast chatting about it all. Brad is a multi-faceted, award-winning talent who has written several books and also developed projects for television, film, radio, and the stage.
