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.
Another World is a podcast about activists, artists, and radicals navigating the space between despair & hope.
Episode 1 features a conversation with Margaret Killjoy, an anarchist author, designer, and traveler. We talked about writing, gender non-conformity, death, and what happens when "no future punks" are confronted with the future.

There is a tendency to be attracted to bad news. Is this regressivist? Are things getting worse? Is something called society fragmenting? In this episode we talk anthropology and animism, the bible and speculation, the academy and truth. Epistemic consistency for the win? We discuss mass shootings (con) and the social media ripple around it. Beta's are discussed. and then society as framed by the book Enemies of Society.

This is the second of two episodes where we focus on conflict. We begin by whetting our appetite on another look at the Micheal Schmidt controversy, we discuss the fantastic new article from the current issue of Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed and the context of it being published as an audiozine by Free Radical Radio, and finally we engage in the topic of Conflict, ending by some thoughts on Justice.
From The Brilliant
You are the brilliant. You imagine the world you'd like and make furtive gestures towards it. In this world, one of grayness and monotones, you stand out as a splash of impossible color.
We'd like to believe we are story tellers, telling your stories, stories that don't end in glorious victory but with real live people confronted with unforseen consequences and fairy tales that don't involve simple endings.
In this episode, the Ex-Worker explores connections between anarchism, repression and resistance across the world in countries that rarely appear in the radical limelight. We share an interview with an Anarchist Black Cross chapter in Belarus, discussing the president’s recent release of anarchist political prisoners; interview a Czech anarchist about “Operation Fenix” and recent entrapment cases and terrorism charges leveled at anarchists there; and provide more context to last episode’s call to flag-burning action from South Korean anarchists by examining the historical and political contexts of the flag for Korean radicals. We also discuss the Suruc massacre and developments among Kurdish struggles in Turkey and Syria, and expand our ongoing discussion of the concept of “terrorism” through the lens of a court ruling about gangs in El Salvador. Listener thoughts on Zeitgeist, conspiracy theories, and small-town anarchism, debunking the myth of “cops under attack” since the emergence of Black Lives Matter, and an announcement of the CrimethInc. “To Change Everything” US tour top off our usual collection of global news updates, prisoner birthdays, event announcements, and more.

Rydra, of Free Radical Radio fame, co-hosts: history and theory of FRR, what's up with SF Bay Area anarchy, report on Seattle Anarchist Book Fair. Remove those unsightly sweat glands (Sweat Experts), this week's round of modern disasters, tech ads of the week, action
briefs, two calls.
As Anarchist Radio Berlin we talked with an UK-based prisoner support activist about capitalism and recent changes in judicial law. This concerns especially legal aids and the introduction of so-called "court costs", showing clearly an ever more class-based judicial system.
#39: The Rojava Revolution, Part II – In the latest episode of the Ex-Worker, we continue our discussion of the unfolding social revolution in the autonomous Kurdish territories of Rojava. Building on our coverage in Episode 36, we share two interviews themed around international solidarity with the struggle for autonomy and the fight against ISIS.
