The #GroundingsPodcast is a place where organizing, theory, and history come in contact with dialogue, experience, and storytelling. The title "Groundings" is in honor of the revolutionary educator Walter Rodney, whose concept of "groundings" as a form of radical, political, dialogic, and communal education continues to inspire today. Groundings: we sit, we listen, we talk, we share, and we learn. The podcast is hosted by Devyn Springer with production help from Christopher Hollis.
