Todays interview is with Nathan Stickel. Nathan is a punk, a cook, and a rural working class white southerner living in the City, here in Richmond, Virginia. For a while you could find him working at the Flying Brick during open hours, and nowadays, working with the local chapter of Jericho, a group working to help support political prisoners inside the United States. I've known Nathan for a few years now, and have always found him to have intersting insights on things, so it was great to hear his thoughts on things like OCCUPY, Voting, and activism in general, as well as learn about his experiences growing up in small town, and the contrast of that with living in a city like Richmond.
Various Things is a collection of conversations with folks around Richmond, Virginia that are challenging the way things are done, and as a result, making the world a more interesting place.
The podcast is hosted by Gary Llama.
