In honor of the Independence Day weekend, this edition of Planet Waves FM goes in search of the American Dream with the help of music and poetry. We visit many versions of the dream, from different eras of history and regions of the country.

I do a reading of the United States chart, as well as this weekend’s Full Moon chart, which is closely aligned with the United States Sun. This includes a new discussion of the U.S. Pluto return.

The new Planet Waves FM is ready. This week’s theme is The Nature of the Beast: for example, how it is that police are beating on people who are protesting against police brutality, as if to prove their point for them.

For this discussion, I am grateful to my American Studies professor and mentor at SUNY Buffalo, Mike Frisch.
