    The Final Solecast w/ The Final Straw

    The Final Solecast w/ The Final Straw

    Closing out a hellish year with the final episode of the “ solecast” before I change the name (and focus) to The Institute For Post-American Studies in 2021.  Couldn’t think of a better way to end it, then with two of my favorite co-travellers and co-conspirators in the world of anarchist podcasting: Final Straw Radio.   In this episode we reflect on 2020, our hopes and fears for the future and how this year surprised us in many ways.  We also talk about our projects and things we've learned along the way, going in depth on on issues of race and anarchy, internationalism, abolition, ecology and much more.  Bursts also shares his Kim chi recipe at the end.

    Solecast w/ Erda: Insurgent Emo Rap

    Solecast w/ Erda: Insurgent Emo Rap

    Erda makes emo inspired rap music with an anarchist bent. Their music expresses both the existential angst of our epoch and the spirit of resistance. Based out of NY, Erda has a background in various genres of music, and this lends itself to a very unique aesthetic and approach to hip-hop. In this conversation we talk about bridging the personal with the worldly, Erda's background with farming and permaculture and life under the algorithm.
    In this episode we open it up with a recent track, "Riot 2" and close it with an unreleased jam called "The Skyline Would Look So Beautiful On Fire." Uou can follow Erda on Twitter, Instagram, Spotify and Bandcamp.

    Solecast: On Destituent Power & The Undercommons w/ Micol Siegel

    Solecast: On Destituent Power & The Undercommons w/ Micol Siegel

    In this episode of the Solecast I speak with author and Indiana University professor, Micol Seigel. This conversation is meant as a primer for the the concepts of destituent power and the under commons. After a year of unimaginable suffering and resistance, the ideas of Destitution and under commons provide us critical tools for building the capacity we need to weather the storm(s) that we find ourselves in. We also talk about the free-to-all virtual conference they are hosting the weekend of 11/13-11/16:
     
    On November 13th-16th, then, Indiana University’s 2020 Critical Ethnic Studies symposium brings into dialogue two zones of contemporary insurgent study: the undercommons and destituent power. To explore social life that evades political constraints such as citizenship, sovereignty, and governance, we seek to build upon the work of Fred Moten, Stefano Harney and Giorgio Agamben. Reveling in the fields that ground their work, the Black radical tradition and Italian Autonomia, this forum seeks to collect and share what we’ve learned from the practices and forms of life that are already breaking free of politics.

One of the best writers/people.

Out of anyone I’ve ever respected, I’m so grateful that Sole has a podcast. Much love.

If you have any medium shirts, I want to buy one. I would wear so many different lines of your writing on a shirt. Consider it :)

Been listening since 2005, and the songs are more relevant than ever. Thank you for the podcast.

Solecast

I want to like this podcast but the sound quality and interview style could be so much better considering Sole’s background in music.

Kids... your grounded from the computer! Turn off the lights in the basement and get upstairs!
