Tim @risegainst coming to #BustEDPencils


Listeners and readers of BustED Pencils know we have a love for music—punk rock particularly!  I typically try to find a music video to support blog posts and our intro music to the podcast is Rise Against’s Re-Education (Through Labor).

Last week I had the opportunity to get an interview with Tim McIlrath of Rise Against in Janesville, WI at Sonic Boom.  We talked about the link between punk rock and activism and the influence of Howard Zinn and the need for public schools to offer a more critical and justice oriented curriculum.

You’re going to have to wait for the release of the podcast but until then enjoy some photos.
