The delights of grannying include: dressing like innocent little old ladies so we can get close to our ‘target’, writing songs from old favourites that skewer modern wrongs, satirizing evil-doing in public and getting everyone singing about it, watching a wrong back down and turn tail and run, sharing a history with other women who know who they are and what they’re about. Grannying is the least understood yet most powerful weapon we have. Sometimes, looking back, we can see grannying was the only thing that could have met the need.
Welcome to Polyrical.
Polyrical is a podcast of Music and Politics.
It is a soundtrack for the resistance. It is a Topical Solution for the Political Revolution. It is resistance radio.
Political music won't change the world, but it does inform and inspire individuals to act and can sustain and support us while we organize and work to create a better world.
Podcast episodes are HERE.
Some of my recent favorite songs are below.
