LehCats' latest release, Movement to Egalitaria, is a collection of songs that come together to engender an achievable vision of a fairer society. Join me and this fantastic musical couple, Karen Stachel and Norbert Stachel, as we talk about the making of the album, discrimination in the world of classical music, the Bay area, and other carefully related topics.
