Renee Graham is a renowned music and arts journalist who has been writing for the Boston Globe for thirty years. Her remarkable ability to speak on the cultural and social movements of the last fifty years has made her a highly sought-after documentary guest, and you can hear her expert commentary in Netflix's "The Two Killings of Sam Cooke," and in CNN's "The Seventies," "The Eighties," "The Nineties," "The 2000s," "The Movies" and "1968: The Year That Changed America."
Following a hiatus, she returned to the Globe in 2016 on the day before Donald Trump was elected president. She quickly decided she couldn't just keep to her pop culture beat. Her widely read opinion column tackles politics, racial justice, women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights and more.
Join us as we discuss how her obsession with music started as a kid in Queens, her career-defining interview with Prince, what kinds of police reform might be needed in our cities, and her answer to my all-important question: What cover songs do you think are just as good, if not better, than the original?
