Today I do a short news segment and then get to my guests.
19 mins I welcome the great Maura Quint. Maura is a humor writer and activist whose work has been featured in publications such as McSweeneys and The New Yorker. She was named one of Rolling Stone’s top 25 funniest twitter accounts of 2016. When not writing comedy, Maura has worked extensively with non-profits in diverse sectors including political action campaigns, international arts collectives and health and human services organizations. She has never been officially paid to protest but did once find fifteen cents on the ground at an immigrants’ rights rally and wanted to make sure that had been disclosed. She was the co founder and executive director of TaxMarch.org
And she recently began a new gig at the Americans for Tax Fairness campaign director
Listen to Maura co host their new podcast revisiting the YA books we loved in the 80s & 90s “My So Called Book Club”

Many of you have become close personal friends of mine as my career in broadcasting has continued in to its latest iteration as a daily podcast.

She has experienced all different types of tragedies, overcome the most challenging of obstacles and brought so much joy and happiness to so many people including right here in our own community. It’s time the world got to know Vicky! I am so proud to present this conversation to you and as Vikki reminds us seek justice, love mercy and walk humbly.
