Episode Title: 
Phil Ochs: There But for Fortune

Explore the iconic 1960s folk-protest music hero’s troubled life through his songs and interviews with Joan Baez, Sean Penn, Pete Seeger, Tom Hayden and others. Inspired by both Woody Guthrie and Elvis Presley, Phil Ochs was one of the most politically active singer-songwriter’s of his generation and his music is as relevant today as it was then — “I Ain’t Marching Anymore,” “Power and the Glory,” “The War Is Over,” and “There But for Fortune.” Unyielding in his political principles and unbending in his artistic vision, Ochs tirelessly fought for peace and justice throughout his short life, which ended in suicide at the age of 35.
