Episode 2.1 – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Special guest: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

On our Season 2 opener, our guest is Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the United States Supreme Court. She talks about her love for the opera and about friends and family that have been part of her story, and she shares some of the wisdom she has gained during her long and productive career.

Justice Ginsburg and many of her loved ones are presented as characters in the song cycle The Long View, composed and performed by her daughter-in-law, Patrice Michaels. These can be heard on Cedille Records‘ 2018 release Notorious RBG in Song, available to purchase or stream from any of these sites.

2. Stream it on the players embedded right here on GlissandoPodcast.com. The player we use is taken from Naxos Music Library, a classical music streaming service used by universities, public libraries, and orchestras around the world. It pays out a much higher per-stream rate than any other streaming service–we’re talking multiple whole pennies per stream–so using this player is especially beneficial to those who made the music.
