Liberal Dan Radio 7/25/2018: Music4More and Mapmaker

On the July 25, 2018 Episode of Liberal Dan Radio:

Music 4 More is a 501(c)3 charity organization that launched in Baltimore in 2007. Their primary focus is collecting instrument donations and reintroducing them into struggling school and community music programs. Since their launch, Music 4 More has donated over 600 instruments to schools, after school programs, and community initiatives. I will be discussing the charity with Deidra Stevens and what you can do to help students and veterans (with their Music4Vets program.

In the bottom half of the hour I will be discussing the issue of Gerrymandering with Josh Lafair, one of the developers of the game Mapmaker, a boardgame about gerrymandering inspired by their own home district in Texas. I am excited that the Kickstarter is already funded and I wanted to help promote a game that intends to educate people more about how lines are drawn in our political process and what we need to do to make voting more fair.

The show won’t have many bits this week. I just have too much room for all the good topics.

Thanks to Ross Bugden – Music on YouTube for my show intro.
