Separated
In 2018, MSNBC journalist Jacob Soboroff was among the select few to visit Casa Padre, one of the detention centers at the epicenter of the border crisis. What he saw there was cruel, unjust, and part of a long, complicated story. Soboroff joins us this week to talk about reporting at overcrowded facilities, and the families he met who were forcibly separated. Their perspectives shed light on the inhumanity of Trump’s zero-tolerance policy, chronicled in Jacob’s book, “Separated: Inside an American Tragedy.”   Purchase “Separated: Inside an American Tragedy” online from your local bookstore Follow Jacob Soboroff on Twitter   Keep up with Julián on twitter @JulianCastro and Instagram @JulianCastroTX   Support the show by checking out our sponsors You can digitally purchase life insurance from Haven Life Insurance Agency at havenlife.com/ouramerica.

Dick's Picks Vol. 16 - 11/07-08/69, San Francisco, CA
In this week’s episode we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 16 from the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA on November 7 and 8, 1969. PRIMAL DEAD! Coming just a few weeks shy of the Altamont Festival & the end of the 1960’s, we hear The Dead in a period of growth and transition. Just three months later they’ll be performing what many consider their greatest shows of all time (2/13-14/70 at the Fillmore East), we hear the seeds of that show, while also taking a reflective look back at their thematic brilliance of the 1960s. In Disc One, we hear an early, up-beat & extended take on “Dire Wolf,” a fiery “China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider,” and the first ever “Cumberland Blues.” Disc Two is up there with the best of the entire series as “Dark Star” jams deep before transitioning into a stunning segment which reads: “-> The Other One -> Dark Star -> Uncle John’s Band Jam -> Dark Star -> St. Stephen -> The Eleven.” Displaying their fluidity during the era, while also preluding some of their lengthy excursions from the early 70’s, it’s a monumental jam segment & should be a standard CD in every Deadhead’s car. Finally, in Disc Three, we throw the reigns to Pigpen while hearing some of the wildest psychedelic/blues jamming in Dead history.  36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media. It is edited and produced and mastered by Brian Brinkman. All music composed by Amar Sastry, unless otherwise noted. Logo design by Liz Bee Art & Design.
