For the next few months, as I wind down my regular duties here on Greater Boston, I’m going to be talking to people we’ve had on the show before, people with extraordinary skills and special perspectives, and people who’ve elevated the discourse of the show over the years: call it Emily’s List.

First up is Wendy Kaminer, who never fails to speak her mind, honestly and openly, even when her way of thinking is contrary to popular opinion. Wendy is a lawyer, social critic and author who writes for publications like the New York Times, the Atlantic Monthly, and the Village Voice.
