Tune into WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday at 6 pm to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Joanne Shenandoah
One of Central New York’s artistic treasures is the Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Joanne Shenandoah, from the Wolf Clan of the Oneida Nation. This week on the Campbell Conversations, host Grant Reeher talks with her about music, peacemaking, and politics, as well as her recent work to reduce violence among Native American children. Their political discussion touches upon the tensions among the Nations of the Iroquois when it comes to policies like casino gambling. And the conversation ends with something new for the program–a live in-studio performance, with Shenandoah and her daughter Leah.
Miss the live broadcast? The interview will be available as a podcast and download on the Campbell Conversations page after Sunday.
Every week Grant Reeher, Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University, leads a conversation with a notable guest. Guests include people from central New York – writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals whose work affects the public life of the community – as well as nationally-prominent figures visiting the region to talk about their work.
The Campbell Conversations are longer interviews which encourage the character of the interviewee to be exposed. This allows you to learn more about the person, how they got to where they are, and where they plan to go. Grant attempts to go beyond the usual press conference questions and sound bites, which usually accompany a discussion about his guests.
Podcasts of the show are available via iTunes.
