Brett's pick for New to Two this round is right up his alley -- Chicago blues, August Wilson, and philosophical monologues, creating the stew that is Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Brett, David, and Nicole discuss this fictional day in the life of the real blues legend Ma Rainey, and get into the powerhouse performances, the hazards of predatory music contracts, and the problem of evil. Grab an ice-cold Coca-Cola and listen in.
