From Unicorn Riot
A discussion with Janet Biehl on Rojava and the works of Murray Bookchin. We go in-depth on how people in this Kurdish region are developing an autonomous, democratic, stateless society in the midst of a warzone. Fighters from this region are popular for being the most effective fighting force standing up to ISIS/Daesh (see Kobane). What is really happening here has largely been ignored in the mainstream media. We delve a bit deeper:
- What do their democratic institutions look like?
From The Brilliant
This is one of the first episodes where B & A! seriously disagree. Probably there is just some sort of misunderstanding or perhaps race is something we are not capable of seeing eye to eye on. Entertaining listen though. Totally separately than this is a discussion about an article from the newest Black Seed by Gerald Vizenor.
From The Brilliant
In this episode, we try to recover from our losses: Bellamy happened to be generally dispirited about life at the time of recording (and it shows!), while Aragorn! broods over having lost two episodes of The Brilliant through some unknown and unknowable techno-incompetence. Perhaps fittingly, we spend some of the episode talking about an event and a project which excite us and the last third of the episode responding to our most consistent and harsh criticism.
On The East Bay Anarchist Bookfair, Mass Shootings & Insubordinate Care
Hosted by Rydra, Squee, and Kelpsea. We discuss our day at the East Bay Anarchist Bookfair in Oakland, CA. We discuss tabling and presentations on mass shootings, self care for the damned, post-modernity, rojava, spiritual anarchy, and more.
In this episode, we respond to some of the wonderful feedback, suggestions, and questions we've received from listeners – there is actually so much that we weren't able to get to all of it in this episode and will follow up on it in the next. We are asked about issues of race; discuss how we have very different backgrounds related to this issue; and end up talking about the importance of, and our frustration with, the way discussions of race are framed in North America. Bellamy addresses some feedback about how FRR was better than his current podcast, leading A! to talk about what it looks like to do meaningful projects in our context. A! responds to criticism of an essay he wrote in the past, connecting it to genocide. Finally, Bellamy escapes a dramatically read critique by filibustering.
From The Brilliant
This episode concerns indigeneity. It is labeled part II but, in fact, should be part I as our first episode on this issue was distracted by more (temporally) pressing items. We begin by returning to our dialogue with the Haters, discussing a critique of anti-civilization discourse, the Rojava reportbacks by Paul Z Simons (who has outed themselves in the last writeup), and then an emo rantish introduction to the topic of Indigeneity by Aragorn!

This episode features Crimethinc. and their To Change Everything tour. We try to turn the conversation into a condemnation on humanism to limited success. We do ask some questions that others may have more complete answers to than we did in this conversation. Obviously we are thankful to Crimethinc for bringing their guests to our neck of the woods to entertain and beguile us with how wonderful other places are. We also respond to some more feedback including a correction from Resonance Audio and more anthropology feedback.
