    THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 361: Urban Farming and Feminism w/ Tanya Denise Fields

    THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 361: Urban Farming and Feminism w/ Tanya Denise Fields

    Inspired by her experiences as a single working mother living in a marginalized community, Tanya Denise Fields founded the Black Feminist Project (formerly the BLK Projek) in 2009 as a response to sexist institutional policies, structurally reinforced cycles of poverty, and harsh inequities in wealth and access to capital that result in far too many women being unable to rise out of poverty and sustain their families. She also created an urban farm in the heart of the Bronx. Black Joy Farm educates and feeds the community, even during the pandemic.

Funny, political, and sharp analyses

Sometimes leftists podcasts can be super boring and sad (bc of the content that is being covered). This podcast feels like a party, like a dinner table conversation with those uncles and aunties that talk about politics. This last one with Tanya Denise fields was AMAZING!

The only thing is… they intro song is bit much but hey we out here supporting y’all.

Smart, Fun, Insightful

This podcast is a brilliant combination of serious consideration of important topics with just the right amount of humor and levity. It feels like you’re talking to the “adults in the room” because they are realistic and grapple with inconvenient but important topics that similar podcasts tend to avoid. But they manage to engage with this serious content without coming across as “doom and gloom pessimists” nor as “one true vanguard cultists”.

RATZGobbler ,

The intro music is so hard to get through.

It’s one thing how much it goes on and I’m a solid fan of death metal but the compressed sound is almost torture and I really can’t enjoy it during a drive if the first few minutes are just going to be like concrete slabs scraping together. Otherwise the commentary is very insightful. Just please fix the intro.
