MikeyPod 246 | Activist Musician Jason Oliver

New year, new focus!  Starting with this week’s episode of the podcast, I’m narrowing the focus of my guests to artists and creators who make work about their activism, and I couldn’t think of a better guest to start with than Jason Oliver. Jason is a singer-songwriter who is also extremely active in open rescue of animals with Direct Action Everywhere. Though his activist work takes him to some of the most hellish places on earth, his music and spirit seem imbued with a lightness and hope that is irresistible. I hope you love this interview as much as I did, and please be sure to support Jason’s work by buying his album hereRead More
