After a two month hiatus, the Passions and Survival radio program on Valley Free Radio, WXOJ-LP Northampton, 103.3 FM has returned to its regular weekly slot. You can tune in every Monday morning from 9:00 to 10:00 AM. You can also listen online at http://www.valleyfreeradio.org/
Continuing this project's mission of exploring the dilemma of following our passions while surviving in a capitalist society, the radio program features analysis of many of the complexities of modern life along with potential solutions to creating a new society. Topics explored include: work, leisure, consumerism, education, the politics of food and housing, the so-called "quarter-life crisis", alienation, happiness, success, economic alternatives, class mobility, and a plethora of related topics that tend to intersect with each other.
The show often features people from the Pioneer Valley discussing their jobs and the struggle to follow their passions. Drop a line if you are interested in being a guest on the program.
