It's black Friday, and, as the coronavirus spikes around the country, retailers closely eye holiday spending.
Radical performers Reverend Billy Talen and the Church of Stop Shopping blend activism, music, and humor to trace the connections between consumerist culture, climate crisis, and the coming "shopacalypse." "Reverend Billy Radio - Preacher for the Planet" makes it's debut at noon tomorrow on WRFI.
WRFI contributor and General Manager Felix Teitelbaum talks with the good Reverend about shopping, activism, and the end of the world.
