Feminist spoken word roadshow Sister Spit has been sporadically criss-crossing the nation for 20 years now, building community around radical writing, poetry, and films. The group started in 1994 as a Bay Area open mic night meant to highlight the work of women artists who weren't getting enough attention. Since then, Sister Spit has become a traveling show and literary press. On this episode, we talk with three talented members of recent Sister Spit tours: essayist Beth Lisick, poet Dia Felix, and artist and musician Cristy Road.
More ways to listen to the show are below the cut.
Sister Spit: the Next Generation just started their Fall '09 tour! This year's tour features Ben McCoy, Kirya Traber, Sara Seinberg, Ariel Schrag, Beth Lisick, Rhiannon Argo, and of course, Sister Spit and RADAR founder Michelle Tea.
