Ryan and the rest of the DNC2RNC marchers went through relics of the Hurricane earlier in the day.

He has been working on the musical aspects of the march for the last few few months.

In addition to discussing the DNC2RNC march, Ryan also talks about writing songs, some of his inspirations, organizing as a youth in Towson, MD (which 'earned' him visits from the FBI), increased police repression (like shutting down activist art spaces), under-ground and above-ground activism, copyrights and distributing his music, organizing in locations all across the US, the US government's tactics for supressing dissent, knowing our history and being a folk musician.
