Views and Brews
Twice a month the Cactus Cafe hosts KUT’s Views and Brews.
Views and Brews is a free space where we invite the community in to explore a wide range of subjects and ideas. Already we’ve talked about Jazz and the Spiritual Journey through the music of John Coltrane, Drugs and the Olympics, Texas Politics, the History of Radio, Women in the Jazz Conversation, Texas high school football, and the life of Tennessee Williams. All that and we’ve only just begun!
Our goal is to engage with the community to share thoughts, inspire new perspectives, and develop compelling multimedia content all while involving Austin in the discussion.
The Greek Economy, The European Union, and The Future of Social Democracy
Tuesday, May 3, 6:00 pm,
Join hosts of The Secret Ingredient podcast, Rebecca McInroy, Raj Patel, and Tom Philpott for a special show, as they talk with eminent UT economist James K Galbraith, author of many books, including the recent Inequality: What Everyone Needs to Know and the forthcoming Welcome to the Poisoned Chalice: The Destruction of Greece and the Future of Europe.
Galbraith was an adviser to Yanis Varoufakis during the latter's brief and momentous stint as finance minister of Greece. It will be a great discussion about inequality, the Greek debacle, the prospects for social democracy in America, and more. Hope to see you there!
