I believe 

MUSIC AND ART TELL THE STORIES OF OUR LIVES.

The music makers and artists, the architects and playwrights, the activists and advocates, the poets and politicians, the dreamers and thinkers—their work helps us see the beauty and fragility of the world and to discover ways we can make a difference in the lives of those around us. Every story has a purpose. I report on music trends and industry, musicians' lives and careers, and the songs that shape our cultures. I hope sharing these stories will inspire us to think, act, and grow.

RECENT RADIO APPEARANCES

A recent story in the Atlantic describes “Atlanta’s growing reputation as futuristic cinema’s go-to city.” Author Kristi Wooten joins guest host Bradley George to talk about why the city’s architecture makes it a dream setting for directors with a dystopian vision.
