“Peaceful Warriors” by Tanya Rodrigue.
This narrative audio journalism piece—part documentary/part personal narrative—tells a story of the Jan. 21st Women's March. The story weaves together narration, family stories, media clips, and interviews/conversations with protestors at the sister marches in Chicago, DC, London, Toronto and Denver. Perhaps more importantly, it tells a story about protests—how they work to foster human connection and evoke intense emotions that drive people to action.
Tanya Rodrigue is an English professor at Salem State University and teaches writing and rhetoric. She lives in Salem, Massachusetts with her husband, Pete, and her son, Aedan.

The 58 stories of Rain Check explore the vast universes that exist within the 1,000 word confines of flash literature. The material leaps gracefully from the humorous, the heartbreaking, reverent, profane, carnal and the ethereal. Noe makes us feel bound in deeply personal moments and experiences that, in turn, tap into the unifying humanity that binds us all. Rain Check zooms in and out of the macro and microscopic while always keeping a keen eye on the multi-faceted mystery of being that seems to only make sense through contradiction.
