Happy holidays, and Merry Christmas to all of our Christian and Catholic friends who are celebrating, as well as Happy Hanukkah to all of our Jewish friends! It’s been a long year for those who support and work on progressive values and we’re taking our own end-of-year breaks for the past few weeks — so we won’t have a new episode for you. But we do have a bonus episode!
In this bonus episode, we’ll be featuring Stephanie’s audio pieces that she did as part of her grad school studies at the Columbia School of Journalism. The pieces are titled “Unsilent Night” — which is about a decades-long sound composition against traditional Christmas music — and “A Night at Greenwood Cemetery” — which is about Stephanie’s night tour of the famous cemetery in Brooklyn, in New York City. We thought it’d be cool for you listeners to get a listen behind the scenes at what Stephanie’s been up to for the last few months!
Lastly, we just wanna say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us, listened to our episodes, and shared them with friends and family throughout 2017. It’s been a huge year for us personally — having both moved to the States for different reasons — but we’re incredibly humbled and grateful to hear that our stories and interviews continue to inspire listeners across the world and move the conversation towards a more progressive and just global society. It’s been a tough year for progressive values and it’s only gonna get tougher, but as our wonderful friend Kate Walton said in our last episode, we gotta keep the momentum going and continue the good fight into 2018 and beyond. We’re excited about what the new year will bring, and we can’t wait to share those stories in the near future. We’ll see you in 2018!
Swedian & Stephanie
