The Most Wonderful Wonder: The Preacher and the Slave

The Most Wonderful Wonder quickly became one of my favourite podcasts because of it’s wonderful blend of history and folk music. Every episode has been a delight. In the aftermath of the American election, the podcast featured a snapshot of the life of Joe Hill in “The Preacher and The Slave“. His fight against callous business owners, the Salvation Army and capitalism more widely is beautifully captured by Welcome Little Stranger. It’s a piece of history we need more than ever today.
