    Apocalypse Survival Skill #8: Casa de Salud

    We survive by building the new world in the shell of the old, and our new world will need a health care system. How do we transition from a health care system rooted in extraction and profit, to a health care system rooted in justice? We turn to family physician Anjali Taneja, Executive Director of Casa De Salud, a clinic on the forefront of providing justice-driven, accessible health care in Albuquerque, for wisdom and vision in the midst of the pandemic.

    Apocalypse Survival Skill #7: The Internet is a Place

    Apocalypse Survival Skill #7: The Internet is a Place

    Now more than ever we are relying on the internet to satisfy our basic needs and desires. This begs the question, what are apocalypse survival skills for the internet? How do we use the internet as a tool for survival? How do we maintain safety for our communities and our movements for social change when so much of that work must now happen digitally? And what exactly is the internet, anyway? For answers, we turn to digital security expert and organizer for change, Bex Hong Hurwitz of Tiny Gigantic.

    We bring you part two of Autumn’s interview with So and Pinar, the love organism behind Queer Nature. We discuss the potential dangers of being on the move in an apocalyptic situation, and how to mitigate them.

So and Pinar created a guide highlighting important concepts from this and the previous episode, so feel free to open it and follow along as you listen.

    Apocalypse Survival Skill #5: Tactical Hope

    Apocalypse Survival Skill #5: Tactical Hope

    What behaviors and choices make the difference between life and death in a disaster? What are the skills that will matter most in a crisis, and how do we learn them? Autumn interviews the brilliant founders of Queer Nature, who lead workshops and immersions teaching survival skills and natural crafts. In the first of two conversations, Queer Nature drops wisdom on how the mind and body respond to crisis, how non-human systems can be our allies, and what trauma has to do with our survival.

    Music by Tunde Olaniran, Kaela Drew and Mother Cyborg.

    Apocalypse Survival Skill #3: Where There is No Doctor

    We continue our miniseries with a conversation about how we access medicine, health, and healing when our under-resourced and fragile medical systems are overwhelmed. Autumn interviews community herbalist Lauren Giambrone, about plant medicine and home remedies that build our immune systems and fight infections, as well as kitchen witchery and other forms of ancestral medicine that can keep us safe and healthy.

A Way Forward

This is not just a podcast about how to survive. These conversations open possibilities for how we might LIVE, in healing, in grief, in humanity, in relationship, in gratitude, in praxis, in integrity.

Keep Listening

My privilge makes it easy for me to overshare, dominate conversations, and neglect to listen. Although I feel completely included in Autumn and adrienne conversations, the podcast format means it is never my turn to interject, it is only ever my turn to listen. The podcast allows me to be 'in' their safe space without my physical presence altering that space. Thank you for all the lessons and gifts my nature makes it difficult for me to recieve.
