The Crisis at Pacifica

It’s the only mass broadcast institution the left has — but it may disappear, right when listeners are tuning in and donating in droves during the Trump years. Radio historian Iain Boal and former interim Executive Director of Pacifica and Chair of the Pacifica National Board Sherry Gendelman discuss the crisis that has brought Pacifica Radio to the edge of bankruptcy, how we got to this point, and what might be done to salvage a priceless resource for radicals, progressives, visionaries and artists.
