Excellent

I am a longtime fan of ILSR's work (full disclosure: I'm a former employee), and this podcast is one of my favorite developments. These guys shed light on issues that others don't, present real solutions to otherwise daunting problems (with the research to back it up), and feature informed and engaging guests and staff. Keep it coming, friends!

Future of Music

Super happy to hear a voice from the Future of Music coalition. They've done stellar work in advocating for indie artists in the nations capital, DC to keeping an eye on the corporate radio monopoly culture that's compromising equal access for indie artists to the airwaves. Their annual conference is excellent and you can listen in live and to prior conferences via archived audio.

Way to go!

This podcast is a wonderful analysis of the ways our extractive economy functions, historically and at present. The guests on the show share projectst that fight corporate monopolies and are working to build solidarity economies, economies that work for people.
