I interview Kimberly A. Hamlin, author of Free Thinker: Sex, Suffrage, and the Life of Helen Hamilton Gardener. For more about Kimberly and her work visit


The COVID-19 pandemic has killed hundreds so far in the US and has begun devastating our economy. But the disaster has been made twice as bad by the greed, corruption, willful ignorance and shortsightedness of Donald Trump and (yes) the decades-long policies of Republican Party. Frighteningly, it'll probably get worse before it gets better. Hang on to your hats.

At the top of the show:

- "I Got it from Agnes," by the late satirical genius Tom Lehrer.

- A short clip from "Where Is Everybody?" (1959), the very first episode of The Twilight Zone.
