Author Barbara Ehrenreich
Author Barbara Ehrenreich

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The topic for today's RadioWest is joy. The acclaimed writer Barbara Ehrenreich will be our guest to talk about a particular kind of joy - communal joy. The kind that's been expressed throughout the ages when large groups of people have gathered to feast and to dance. Ehrenreich found that dancing has been a critical part of the way humans evolved and thrived, but over time for various reasons we've resisted this part of our nature. But why? Her book is called Dancing in the Streets. (Rebroadcast)
