6.16.18 KGNU | It's the Economy with Claudia Cragg

Claudia Cragg is a marvelous interviewer, and a fairly rare bird—an unabashed female focused on the economy. She understood the subject, drew me out, and posited that my "mum" was important to my writing this book, seeing right through me.  You'll enjoy her voice, her questions, and will hear me laughing more than once. Screwnomics is on her "recommended" list, she says—and Claudia's smart show is now on mine, too!

You’ll see I’ve improved in this broadcast, more relaxed. Thanks to ORCA in Montpelier and to Samantha Kolbert at Bear Pond Books—and also to Peaco Todd, my cartoon collaborator, and to Cary Brown with the Vermont Commission on Women and their work with Change the Story. Thanks to our great audience too! Note Suzanne Gillis from Vermont Woman, and also Linda Wheatley who headed the organization of the first Gross National Happiness USA conference here in Vermont. Hurray for all those listed on two pages, who helped make Screwnomics possible!

I loved this conversation with Cyrus Webb on Conversations Live! Cyrus said he liked where I confess in Screwnomics that I sometimes feel like I’m bailing the economic ocean with my teaspoon—but if we all do our teaspoon’s worth, together we can raise a wave of change. A thoughtful interviewer, Cyrus is based in Mississippi. Consider subscribing to his show. I have.
