Midler, an environmental activist, where she is happiest, in a spot she has helped to beautify in her beloved New York.

In Part Two of our Digital Dialogue podcast from my archives, Midler and I continue to discuss the launch of her film For the Boys in 1991.  She also discusses how she grew up around military bases as a girl back in Hawaii and how she has always identified with young soldiers.  But it is the timelessness of this short excerpt that impresses and is not only deeply relevant but also deeply touching in how honest she is about her politics and our country.  What she says here is just as pertinent in 2018 as it was in 1991.  Take a listen.  Then take action in your own lives.
