Episode 71 – Egoism III: birds

In this third episode my goal was to talk to someone who was newer to egoist ideas. My hope was to see how these ideas layer over time, but at an earlier time slice. Daniel/birds was gracious enough to sit through this conversation but I suspect they were agitated at the idea that they were […]

Episode 69 – Egoism I: Wolfi Landstreicher

This is the first part in a series (part of the over-arching theme of The Brilliant in 2018) on egoism. While not an egoist myself I consider myself a fellow traveler and consider egoism to a core theoretical concept in anarchist thinking for better and worse. Post-left anarchism is a modern, North American, veneer on […]

Episode 67 – Dominique and Indigenous Anarchy

Dominique is a close friend. If we didn’t live in the big city we’d probably be closer but here we are. Two particles flying around the same center at different speeds. I’m slowing down. He is speeding up. We have been working around the conversation of Indigenous Anarchy for a number of years but perhaps […]

Episode 65 – What is anarchism in 2018

In this season three opener we review what the intention is for the 2018 season. This initial set of four conversations (of which this first is more of a presentation) cover four themes. Second Wave Anarchy, Indigenous anarchism, the (im)possibility of social change, and Earth centeredness. This is to set the stage for an anarchism […]

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? Episode 59 – […]

Episode 58 – Exclusion IV

This is a discussion with Andy Robinson. One of my favorite recent AJODA authors. Part of my interest in discussing exclusion was to begin to formulate a Grand Theory of Exclusion (I am only partially joking) to describe the why, how, and whatnot of why so many anarchists (that interest me) are excluded from most/many […]

Episode 57 – Exclusion III

This is the third of four conversations about exclusion. This is an interview with Mitchell Halberstadt. He wrote a provocative essay back when I was with AJODA and I’ve stayed in contact with him every since. That said he has burned every anarchist bridge available to him since then. He’s been escorted out of several […]
