In last episode of the Antioch Word, we explored community through Toni Jonas Silver’s Community Voices story about Gene the rat. This episode continues to look at the things that bring us all together, but this time, it’s about a place. Community Voices producer Frank Fortino ’17 takes us to the Emporium in Yellow Springs.

Gabrielle Civil is a performance artist. "Swallow the Fish" is her memoir. In this book the author reveals how she became a performance artist and how she approaches her craft. The author admits that her work is political and she confesses that while she is performing she is trying to remain present inside her body. She describes a number of the pieces which she has performed. There are numerous photographs as well as essays about this author's experiences, inspirations, and beliefs.

With a variety of stringed instruments, Rick and Hillary Wagner, who also perform under the name Jim's Red Pants, joined Tom Duffee live on A Country Ramble for music and conversation.  The duo performed a variety of traditional and original music and shared the stories behind their songs.
