Have you heard? There’s a presidential election underway in America! And here in Washington State, almost exactly one month from now, Democrats will be choosing between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in our precinct caucuses. To get up to speed on Washington’s particularly weird caucus and primary plans, I talk quickly, at the 2:09 minute mark, to David Ammons, spokesperson for the Washington State Secretary of State. Then, at 7:25, I hear from the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns about why they think you should be caucusing for their candidate on March 26. (And how to figure out where the fuck your caucus site is.) After that, I talk to Stranger visual art critic Jen Graves at 18:59 about the Frye Art Museum’s controversial plan to turn its First Hill parking lot into a fancy high-rise apartment tower. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo!
This Week on Blabbermouth: An all-arts episode with guest host Sean Nelson. That’swhatshesaid director Hatlo talks about the show’s refusal to cease or desist, despite several demands that they do both, and Stranger art critic Jen Graves talks about the many layers of complexity on view at the Kehinde Wiley show at SAM. Eli Sanders will be back next week!
