About

My name is Dave. I am a veteran podcaster and online radio host and I live in a small town far from the major actions of the Occupy movement. (An example of my work can be found here.) I've been a lifelong believer in social and economic justice and consider myself a part of the movement, though I haven't been able to make any significant contribution yet. I hear many of my neighbors expressing confusion about Occupy, and believing that they have little to nothing in common with the people involved. I want to change that by showing that Occupiers share the same concerns, hopes and values as our neighbors. In doing so, I will also be documenting a part of what I believe to be an important moment in history.

In order to bring these people's stories to the rest of us I will produce a webseries in which I will travel to meet with one small Occupation group in each state, interview their members and take part in events with them whenever possible. As I travel the country I will make updates on my journey available in the form of frequent blog entries, social media postings and podcast episodes and I will conduct a weekly online radio show, discussing my journey with callers and playing excerpts from selected interviews. I will also provide streaming video during events, if possible.

It is my hope that this multimedia webseries will help to illustrate that the people involved in the Occupy movement are not so different from their fellow Americans.
