We live in a time of music plenty. Every kind of music is now available to us all the time. But how can we make sense of this insane amount and variety of Music? Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with author and jazz and pop critic for the New York Times, BEN RATLIFF about his important new book: EVERY SONG EVER: TWENTY WAYS TO LISTEN IN AN AGE OF MUSICAL PLENTY.

The proposed Superconducting Super Collider was going to make the United States the premier research destination in high energy physics when it was proposed in the 1980s. It was the largest basic-science project ever attempted in this country and construction was started in Texas. But funding for the project was cut off by Congress in 1993, thus terminating the project and ending this country’s leadership in the field. What went wrong? Tonight we talk with historian and writer MICHAEL RIORDAN about his history (co-authored with Lillian Hoddeson and Adrienne W. Kolb) TUNNEL VISIONS: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER.

Soul Fire Farm, located in Petersburg, New York, is committed to ending racism and injustice in the food system. The farm raises life-giving food and acts in solidarity with people marginalized by what’s known as “food apartheid.” With deep reverence for the land and wisdom of our ancestors, the farm works to reclaim our collective right to belong to the Earth and to have agency in the food system.

Soul Fire Farm brings diverse communities together on this healing land to share skills on sustainable agriculture, natural building, spiritual activism, health and environmental justice. The farm is training the next generation of activist-farmers and strengthening the movements for food sovereignty and community self-determination.

As a farmer, food justice activist and educator, Leah Penniman, co-director of the non-profit Soul Fire Farm, is working to dismantle the oppressive structures that misguide our food system. She backs that mission with an incredible work ethic, sharp intellect and a deep passion for racial equality in land ownership and food production, She is a part-time high school science teacher, was a 2015 Fulbright Fellow and co-founded YouthGROW in Worcester.
