    355) A. Naomi Paik: Sanctuary for all, sanctuary everywhere

    355) A. Naomi Paik: Sanctuary for all, sanctuary everywhere

    “If you’re actually targeting migrants as the source of the problem, if we’re thinking about climate migration as one of the amplified 'threats' from the Department of Defense’s point of view, then you’re never actually going to solve the problem because you’re only addressing the symptom and not the root cause.” In this episode, we welcome A. Naomi Paik, an interdisciplinary scholar whose work examines the relationship between law and cultural politics, centering racism, state violence, and the limits of citizenship to secure rights and social equity. Paik is the author of three books, most recently, Bans, Walls, Raids, Sanctuary. 

    She is an associate professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago, where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on topics including im/migration, U.S. imperialism, comparative ethnic studies, women of color feminisms, carceral spaces, and racial violence.

    351) Chelsea Mikael Frazier: Learning environmentalism through the lens of Black feminism

    “One of the most powerful untapped resources is spirituality. Spirituality—particularly spirituality from Black and Indigenous communities all over the world—has been so denigrated and so viciously attacked that many people are unaware of its transformative potential.” This is a replay of our past interview with Chelsea Mikael Frazier, Ph.D., a Black Feminist eco-critic who writes, researches and teaches at the intersection of Black feminist theory and environmental thought.

    350) Brad Evans: Reclaiming community and the power of silence

    350) Brad Evans: Reclaiming community and the power of silence

    “We’ve collapsed the idea of community with 'connectivity'. But being 'connected' doesn’t mean you have any sense of community. To have a community, you need something very visceral, you need to be in close proximity with people, to communicate on a day-to-day basis, to understand the flaws of people. It’s not about curated existences.”
    In this episode, we welcome Brad Evans, a political philosopher, critical theorist, and writer, who specializes in the problem of violence. His work is particularly concerned with addressing the multiple forms violence takes in the world, while developing a more poetic critique that highlights the importance of the arts and the imaginary.
    The author of nineteen books and edited volumes, along with over a hundred academic and media articles, he currently holds a Chair in Political Violence & Aesthetics at the University of Bath, United Kingdom.

A deeply rooted podcast and community

I started listening to Green Dreamer in late summer 2020, shortly after graduating from college, at a time when I was looking for something to serve as a substitute for the community of critical thinkers that I once had and belonged to back in college. I was an advocate for the environment when I started listening to Green Dreamer, but my views and perspectives regarding Earth’s natural systems, human interactions within and with other species, and modern society’s perceptions and relationship with the rest of the natural world, have drastically changed (for the better!) As Kamea and her podcast have evolved, so have I. Kamea: I am forever grateful to you for leading me down this path and creating this community. And oh the countless times you’ve blown my mind! Potential listener: get ready for some jaw-dropping moments as Kamea and her guests invite you to unravel the scary complexities of mainstream society. This is not your basic podcast.

Inspiring and Educational

The guests on this podcast have inspired me to dream of a better world and to take action to work towards that dream. Kamea’s insights and questions are always illuminating - 6/5 rating!
