Many of you may know me from Revolution and Beer. We talked politics over good craft beer, but the world in which Revolution and Beer began is hardly the crazy, Helter Skelter world we find ourselves in today. Just three and a half years after my able and brilliant co-host Brian Murray and I first debuted on Chicago’s Progressive Talk station, WCPT, the nation, the world, politics and the economy have taken a dramatic turn for the absurd. ISIS, Trump, Hillary, Global Warming, foreclosures, Ebola, militias and an unending parade of crazy demands that we all turn up the volume on absurd for a world that makes The Onion headlines seem, well, real. That earlier project, which grew out of an artistic collaboration and the Occupy Movement, no longer seems adequate to address the insanity of a world seemingly tumbling more and more into chaos and insanity. In that regard, Helter Skelter, read here on WordPress, and heard each week on Que4 Radio in Chicago is less a departure than a double barreled re-arming. Buckle up, we are all in for one hell of a ride, let’s just try and have some fun along the way.
