The first episode of The Leftscape posted on May 30, 2018, which means Wendy Sheridan, Mary McGinley, and Robin Renée have been at this for just over half a year. As we are moving toward the end of the year when retrospectives are many, Robin, Mary and Wendy decided to take some time out to reflect on the show so far. From 4th of July music to stirred up demons to a great interview to limerick contest laughs, a lot has come together in the past six months. The Leftscape co-hosts are looking forward to learning, growing, and presenting much more progressive conversation well into the future.
In News, everyone shares thoughts on the passing and mixed legacy of George H. W. Bush. Robin mentions an anti-fascist, anti-racist metal festival scheduled for January called Black Flags Over Brooklyn. The week in observations and weird holidays include Human Rights Week, Ambrosia Day, Ding-a-Ling Day, Gingerbread House Day, and Poinsettia Day. Birthday shout outs go to Frank Sinatra, Edvard Munch, Edward G. Robinson, Bob Barker, Dionne Warwick, Sheila E, Jennifer Connelly, Denny Dias, and others.
