Dear Friend and Listener:

Events of the past week have been inspiring — such as to make a pillow fort at the back of your closet and hang out with your cat.

What we’re seeing and feeling in the world is related to Mars (still barely advancing in longitude, after the long retrograde) hanging out in a seemingly endless aspect to Uranus-Eris.

Hattie Carroll was murdered by William Zantzinger in 1963. She was memorialized in a Bob Dylan song bearing her name.

It’s shaking the world and driving the message: wake up and pay attention.

Mars quincunx Uranus is exact Thursday, and it’s pulling unpleasant facts of life into focus. It’s also a rare kind of inspiration to make changes based on what you actually see and notice.

Tonight’s edition comes with two classic songs from what most people call Bob Dylan’s protest era; I call it his journalism era. I play and tell the stories behind “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll,” and “Only a Pawn in Their Game,” which references the assassin of civil rights activist Medgar Evers.

I work with these songs as reference points in history, as a reminder that none of these issues are new. But we need to think in new ways, getting a message that was urgent and essential half a century ago when Dylan first wrote and performed them.

I make the connection between the stolen election of 2000, the 9/11 incident and subsequent wars, and the police brutality that we are witnessing here in the United States.
