IGDcast: Cuban Anarchists

from It's Going Down

Cuban Anarchists On Context and Importance of the Recent Wave of Protests

On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we speak with an anarchist from Cuba and a Cuban-American anarchist living in Miami about the recent wave of protests which have swept the island over the last few weeks. While the demonstrations took everyone by surprise, our guests argue that they are historic in that they represent a ground swell of working-class anger that has manifested itself in demonstrations, clashes with the police, and looting; activity which has not taken place on the island for decades.

Postanarchist Ideas in Egoism, on Immediatism podcast

This series of podcast episodes was a project to see whether we could detect postanarchist ideas in egoist writings, specifically ideas of non-essentialism and not expecting a social revolution. The series started out as three essays requested by a listener: Saul Newman's essay on Stirner and Deleuze's anarchism, and the two by Wolfi Landstreicher. Once the postanarchist ideas in Saul Newman's thinking became clear, it became the larger game of finding the postanarchism in the egoism.

HEARS: "it's going down,,, and you're invited" **hair on neck tingles**

From It's Going Down

On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we speak with long-time anarchist musician, author, activist, and podcaster Margaret Killjoy, host of How to Live Like the World is Dying, which embraces the concept of preparedness, or “prepping,” from an anarchist perspective, while interviewing a whole host of guests about skills, infrastructure, and real world problem solving.

Ep. 138: "All Power to the Imagination" ft. N.O. Bonzo

Ep. 138: "All Power to the Imagination" ft. N.O. Bonzo

From Coffee with Comrades

I recently caught up with the anarchist street artist, printmaker, and graphic designer NO Bonzo, a Portland-based illustrator who’s been working on PM Press’s forthcoming Mutual Aid: An Illuminated Factor of Evolution, Pyotr Kropotkin’s seminal work on evolution, politics, and economics. The book is absolutely brilliant, you’ve never seen an edition of Kropotkin’s magnum opus like this before. And, yes, Mutual Aid is his best work, not the Bread Book.

Gone to Croatan on Immediatism Podcast

Gone to Croatan on Immediatism Podcast

Seven of these nine episodes are readings from the Autonomedia books Gone to Croatan, edited by Ron Sakolsky and Jim Koehnline. One is the Fifth Estate book review of Gone to Croatan. The ninth is the essay Gone to Croatan by Hakim Bey, from the Autonomedia book T.A.Z. The Temporary Autonomous Zone. If you listen to only two of the episodes, Immediatism suggests The Legend of the Great Dismal Maroons (episode 552) along with Hakim Bey's essay (episode 558), which contextualizes the Great Dismal maroons as a group among various groups of people seeking autonomy, some of whom interestingly applied to the US government for status as tribes; it was thought that if they got tribal status it would open up the legal reasoning for there to be a reservation for every group that wanted one, including anarchists.

Eric Laursen on IGDcast

from It's Going Down

Eric Laursen on Why Everything We’ve Been Told About the Political State is Wrong

On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we speak with Eric Laursen, author of The Operating System: An Anarchist Theory of the Modern State, who argues that everything we think we know about the creation and function of the political State is fundamentally wrong. During our conversation, Laursen lays out how the State did not arise out of a collective need, nor was it created organically; that instead, it was imposed from above as an instrument to amass wealth and expand economic and military control.

Federation of Anarchism Era on Iran and Afghanistan

Federation of Anarchism Era on Iran and Afghanistan

From The Final Straw Radio

The collective we spoke to for this episode began as a series of remotely-hosted blogs and communication methods among Iranian anarchists at home and abroad. By 2015 anarchists from Afghanistan had started to join and in 2018 the comrades from within Iran and Afghanistan and those living internationally founded Anarchist Union of Afghanistan and Iran. Since, more individuals and groups have joined up from around North Africa, the middle east and other places in the world and they in 2020 re-organized themselves the Federation of Anarchism Era. Last January, after the assassination by the US Trump administration of the murderous Quds leader Soleymani we spoke with members of the then-named AUAI about the network, living under 19 years of US war and 40 years of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
