#098 Precious Lives: The Next Chapter

Nov 29, 2016

At the end of 2016, Precious Lives will shift gears. We’ll wrap up our radio series and focus on a traveling live show. The Precious Lives team will attempt to reach all corners of Milwaukee to harness diverse energies to combat the problem of gun violence.

Performers will bring their stories of gun violence directly into churches, schools, offices and so on.

We’ve tried this a few times already: most notably to a sold out audience at the Pabst Theater over the summer and recently at an event at the Rotary Club.

We’re aiming to do 25 shows throughout 2017.

For this episode, Executive Producer Brad Lichtenstein talks with a few of the performers, Khary Penebaker and Damien Smith, about their experience sharing their stories, how their experiences change based on the crowd and what they hope different audiences will gain from the live shows.
