This Week on KDHX Talk: July 6-9
Each week, we’ll round up the guests and discussions feature on KDHX talk shows. Or at least those shows that send along notes! We’ll kick things off with info about this week’s Topic A. Look for more blurbs next week.
Monday, July 6 on Topic A, 7:30 p.m.: Tonight we kick off a month of conversations on “The Life Creative” — folks of all stripes are getting down with DIY, whether knitting scarves for charity, planting victory gardens to avoid corporate food conglomerates or self-publishing conspiracy theories while wearing the tinfoil hats. What’s behind our impulse to make stuff, to do stuff, to get more self-reliant and creative? We’ll talk about it all month with a variety of voices. Tonight’s guest is Faythe Levine, author and film director of the book/documentary movie project “Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft and Design.” We’ll talk about her 19,000-mile journey to document the resurgence of indie craft and its implications for sustainability and subverting traditional capitalism… and the movement’s limitations.
