I'd interviewed Bill Ayers many times over several years, mostly about public education policy and school and classroom reform. As the Arab Spring uprisings were gaining momentum, I was drawn - with millions everywhere - to focus on the revolution in the East, and I began to wonder about the hope or possibility of revolution here, revolution in the West.

When Bill came to Madison in early fall 2011, Occupy was just beginning, and the seizure of the Wisconsin Capitol still lay ahead. We met in the album archive room of WORT Community Radio, and I asked Bill to reflect a bit about "revolution."
