Musician Jordan Smart joins to talk about the project he has organized, Songs Not Bombs, for which he has compiled nearly 50 songs from a variety of contemporary artists into two volumes being sold to raise funds for the Palestinian Children's Relief Fund. We listen to some of the more politically engaged songs from the just released second volume, and then a playlist of songs about taxes and war.
