Memphis singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Valerie June joins us in this “back by popular demand” rebroadcast. Her unique sound is a mixture of folk, blues, gospel, soul, country, Appalachian, and bluegrass. Singer and songwriter Mick Flannery, who hails from County Cork in Ireland, is our other terrific musical guest. And we’ll hear from this week’s eChievement Award winner, the founder of an environmental health and justice organization based in New Orleans which works with communities to help them hold state oil refineries and chemical plants in their neighborhoods accountable for following clean air standards.
