The show where we, carla bergman & Eleanor Goldfield, trace our present path through the people and stories of the past - as we ourselves - long-term radicals learn about each other, from each other and continue to walk, continue to wake.
Silver Threads, still walking still waking.
Block by Block: Natacia Knapper
"Mutual aid is actually the work of building the world that we want to live in."
Natacia is an organizer with broad and varied experience from across the globe, across the spectrum of charity, solidarity, hope and despair. She joins Silver Threads to dig into the past, present and future, to analyze the lenses with which we view the world, and the work of building new worlds - block by block.

Edgeless Relationships: Eriel Tchekwie Deranger
Eriel is a Dënesųłiné mother from the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN). Her work focuses on building intersectional dialogue between Indigenous rights, climate justice and other social justice movements.
It is from these places without edges that she sits down to speak with us about the importance of not staying in our lanes, of voice vs. power, land back, the language beyond speaking and the issue of naming things and oh so much more!
There Is No Me Without You: YahNé Ndgo
“When we withhold trust from each other all the time, what is the world we create?"
Freedom fighter, writer and singer YahNé Ndgo joins the show to discuss the power of "we," the power of art and the shedding of past shame in order to build beautiful futures.
Love Makes Us More Militant: Marina Sitrin
A radical and kinetic start to 2021! We sit down with Marina Sitrin, mother, dreamer and associate professor to discuss not just movements in time, but in space - journeys that shift paradigms and societies - from Greece to Argentina to upstate New York.
Willingness, Trust and A Glass Half Full of Shit
Behind the curtain, the 4th wall; beyond the distinction between guest and host - today, carla and Eleanor sit down with each other to dig into everything from pop culture embarrassments to melancholic hope and book recs.
A perfectly radical way to wrap up the year in a nice bow, and drop kick our presence into the new year.
Finding Language For The Inherent: Maia Ramnath
“When I was growing up, I was instinctively an anarchist, an anti-capitalist, an environmentalist, but I didn’t have the language for that yet.”
Maia Ramnath (writer, historian, teacher, performing artist, aerialist, activist and more!) joins the show to dig to root causes and root words; to climb to the crowns of trees and explore the radical sharing and decolonizing solidarity in between.
