We spoke with acclaimed author, activist, artist, and movement elder Aurora Levins Morales about her new podcast, Letters From Earth. We talked about her ongoing love affair with radio – from the feminist radio shows she produced in the 1970s, to her time with the Third World News Bureau and her contributions to Flashpoints on Pacifica. We ended with a preview of the show, a piece entitled Mothers.
