This week we covered a lot of bases in the Echo Chamber: sending our heart out to Japan with music by a number of Japanese artists; getting to some women artists we missed last week; and just playing the newest stuff. Also, we debuted a new segment called “Roots of Dub”, where we go back in the roots & dub archive for a full set.
We begin with a few recordings of pets reading their own work, and then Peggy Orenstein calls in to talk about her book Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture. Peggy Orenstein is also the author of Schoolgirls: Young Women, Self-Esteem and the Confidence Gap.
In the second half of the show, famed fantasy writer Orson Scott Card calls in to talk about his latest book, The Lost Gate. Orson Scott Card is the author of many other books, among them Ender’s Game.
Liberty Finch hosts the show this week, while Cyn takes in the scene at SXSW. Featuring music by some of the 35 Twin Cities bands down in Austin for the festival. Former Autumn Leaves member David Ronald Beckey is guest DJ from 11am – noon. Hear him spin with Lynn Zecca at Club Jager’s St. Paddy’s Day event, and look for his new project, the Fairfield Ramblers.
