Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Gary Morgenstein

Today, we have a special guest, Gary Morgenstein, a novelist and playwright featured in national media outlets such as the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, and NPR. Gary has crafted a dystopian political trilogy set in 2098, after America and the West lose World War III to the Islamic empire. In this totalitarian world, democracy is dead, religion is outlawed, and America is ruled by an entity called "the family." Join us as Gary discusses his latest work, "Walking Charlie," and unveils a gripping narrative where baseball becomes the epicenter of resistance, featuring ordinary individuals becoming extraordinary heroes. Alongside this, Gary shares insights on the role of the artist in society and emphasizes the importance of portraying flawed characters to foster understanding in these polarized times. He delves into the need for individual responsibility and the challenges we face in a society that's losing the ability to think critically. Tune in for a thought-provoking episode that explores the power of storytelling, the impact of societal trends, and the potential for positive change in the face of adversity. Listen to Gary's novels, "A Mound Over Hell," "A Fastball for Freedom," and "A Dugout to Peace," available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Connect with Gary on Facebook, Instagram (as Gary), and Twitter (@writergary) for more insights into his powerful and imaginative works.
