Personal Politics

Guest host Baron Vaughn presents three works where the personal and the political collide.  In “Parent Night at Confidence Academy,” by Kiley Reid, a teacher lets parents know what she really sees in their kids.  The reader is Juliana Canfield.  Two kingdoms have created ideal societies, as long as you don’t mind a little restraint, in this playful fable by Berlin Alexanderplatz author Alfred Doblin, read by Kate Burton.  And local politics gets ugly (even the dog is involved) in Peter Orner’s “Shouting Wenkie,” performed by Liev Schreiber.   Join and give!: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/symphonyspacenyc?code=Splashpage See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
