Episode #895: Reinventing the Bus
First Broadcast: 6/7/21
We started by discussing some of the candidates running for Mayor of New York City this year, several of whom were at the Democratic debate hosted by WABC-TV this past week. It's a safe bet that one of them (maybe Maya Wiley?) will win the election, considering the freak show happening with the candidates on the Republican side, who are basically competing in the shadow of a demented ex-President who can't even maintain a blog for a month. Thankfully, the ability to vote in New York State isn't under attack like it is in Texas. And, did we say something about how Andrew Yang's "tech" background reminds me of past "disrupters" who tried to reconfigure the bodega and the bus? Regardless: Onward to the primary!
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
