Dear Friend and Listener:

Here’s a very short summary of tonight’s program. I begin with the Gemini Full Moon, which is happening as we mail this letter out. I then personalize that into the chart of Donald Trump, who was born with a lunar eclipse right in range of tonight’s lunation, describing the influence this may have.

I then take on the “real news versus fake news” story that’s been bouncing around the internet, putting a pretty sharp point on things: newspapers have often lied to the public. This didn’t start with fake news websites. The primary example I give is the dioxin issue, exposed among other places by Vicky Monks in American Journalism Review and republished on one of my websites.

Finally, I take an angle on tantra related to the special burden of women in our society. I offer some suggestions for what we can do about that.

My musical guest is Laurie Anderson. We feature the following albums: Mister Heartbreak (Amazon | iTunes), Big Science (Amazon | iTunes) and Strange Angels (Amazon | iTunes).
