Episode 80: In Which We Are Platonists

Rydra and Bellamy abandon discussing the world in favor of Pure Ideas - this episode is the first in which we are devoid of news-type information! We appear to have some kind of microphone feedback going on that makes a whooshy, 1970's-phaser-esque sound go on through the background of the recording – or maybe it is the tides of Platonic Heaven!

Interview with Bursts O’Goodness From Final Straw Radio

As part of Free Radical Radio’s interview series, Rydra interviews Bursts of Final Straw Radio.  They discuss how Final Straw came to be, get a little bit personal, talk about the future of the show and anarchist media in general, talk prisoner support and what that means/looks like, discuss how they deal with socialists pushing newspapers and holding megaphones, and much much more. read more
