Hmmmm.. reading several recent reviews prompted me to step up to the plate here and talk about how I hear Susie, and place her in the current cultural landscape. To me, she's kind of like a funny, funky, articulate, thoughtful, frank friend at my kitchen table. She doesn't split off her sexual self from the rest of herself, and she weaves it all together in a sexually, culturally, politically explicit way that I find powerful and real. She's deeply humane and a bit utopian. This is a long standing and valuable tradition in this country!!
I love The Next Big Thing. Thoughtful without being self important or pedantic, idiosyncratic without being precious. This is what radio is meant to be- intimate, provocative, shifts my view of the world.
