Mondays never felt so good. If you missed her last week, she's back today with a full week of what she does best: tackling the big topics with ease with her expertise.

Today she's highlighting a South Carolina teacher, Mary Wood, who faced controversy for teaching Ta-Nehisi Coates's book "Between the World and Me." Despite challenges, Wood courageously reintroduced the book, sparking a conversation on the teaching of complex histories. Maggie invites listeners, especially conservatives, to share their thoughts on engaging with difficult historical subjects without resorting to book banning, fostering thoughtful discussions and understanding. Tune in for an insightful exploration of teaching history in the context of our challenging present.

Maggie also chats with Bill Christenson, a candidate for Milwaukee City Comptroller. Bill Christianson currently serves as the Deputy Comptroller of the City of Milwaukee, a role that emphasizes his strong commitment to public finance and civic responsibility. His extensive career with the City of Milwaukee has equipped him with a skill set in financial planning, policy analysis, and strategic project management.

All this month (and beyond), the Maggie Daun show is celebrating some the best African American females singers, today's selections highlighted Aretha Franklin including Say a Little Prayer for You, RESPECT, Chain of Fools, and You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman.
