The Brilliant podcast is a way to have a deeper conversations than allowed in the text boxes of websites. On the one hand a podcast is one way communication but on the other it allows the intimacy of radio, of a voice in your ear that is yours alone.
This week William and Disembodied Voice had the chance to interview Walidah Imarisha, who is an Oregon based writer, educator, public scholar and spoken word artist about her book Angels With Dirty Faces: Three Stories of Crime, Prison, and Redemption, her 2016 book out from AK Press and IAS, which highlights three distinct experiences that are all in different degrees tangential to the realities inherent to the prison industrial complex.

Iran erupts, eastern North America in deep freeze. Joey from Deep Green Bush School in New Zealand reports. Late 2017 rampant violence: mass shootings, pig violence. Latest urban horrors, reefs dying, air worsening.The "Brilliant" episodes 59-63 on technology critique: Huh? Action news, one call.
There are innumerable splits between “anarchists.” Some disagree about economics, strategies of resistance, and a seemingly infinite number of isms. I find the most important split to be between social and anti-social. What need is there for social and anti-social anarchists to “work together.” This is something I just don’t understand. Anyone who seeks to build a new mass society is someone I have a fundamental and irreparable split with…in essence, we are enemies.
Welcome to the anews podcast. This is episode 44 for December 29. This podcast covers anarchist activity, ideas, and conversations from the previous week.
Editorial: With Friends Like These
TOTW -Creative Holiday Tactics
The following zines were published over the past month or so within the broad anarchist space. As always, we encourage folks to read, discuss, and engage with the ideas within. Organizing study groups, talk about them with your friends, leave copies in random places, or write scathing critiques of the ideas contained within and circulate them widely. Anarchist ideas are sharper when accompanied by a robust dialog and debate.
If you have suggestions for titles to include next month, let us know.

Episode 63 – Jason McQuinn (Modern Slavery editor, A:JODA creator)
The goal of this series is to discuss our critique(s) of technology and how these critiques have changed in the past few decades. Specifically we are discussing new technologies like mobile and Internet technology. Communication has changed. How we access information has changed. How has this meant that we have changed too?
From It's Going Down
We begin with a discussion on the recent J20 case, its implications, and what remains to be done in terms of long term support for those still facing charges. We also discuss the past year under Trump, the declining public support and trust in the State in general, as well as the odd situation anarchists find ourselves in now with the heating up of the Mueller investigation.
Three Narratives from Grand Jury Resisters
We’ve prepared a zine version of our guide to grand jury resistance, which originally appeared as episode #59 of the Ex-Worker podcast. This zine presents the voices of three people who successfully stood up to grand jury indictments: one who served jail time for resisting, one who went on the run rather than testify, and one who supported a grand jury resister from the beginning to the end of the process. You can also read their narratives below.
