The Glorious Return!
The majority of this week’s show is a 2002 lecture by novelist and activist Arundhati Roy. It’s an excellent speech about war, power, imperialism, globalization, history, grassroots resistance, and hope. Please give it a listen.
Also features music by Sonic Youth, 65daysofstatic, Against Me, a Radiohead/De La Soul mashup, Devotchka, and more.
This also marks a probably transition for the format of the show. I currently find myself in Info Absorb Mode, constantly reading, listening to interviews, watching video lectures, and trying to mentally synthesize it all at a rapid rate. This is one of the reasons I haven’t been writing or recording much; I’m all about input, not output. So I think that one way I can remain an information sponge and continue to produce useful material for y’all would be to do interviews myself. Find a smart guest, pick their brain about an issue and/or the activist work they do, and upload it for shared listening. So the show might be more about other people’s thoughts than my own for a while. Which is a good thing; sometimes even I get tired of hearing about what I think.
And there will be music, of course. I think I’m too obsessive to give that up.
Thanks for the patience and support, y’all.
