    Episode 149: "What's the Point if We Can't Have Fun?" ft. Works in Theory

    1:18:14

    “The ultimate, hidden truth of the world is that it is something that we make and could just as easily make differently.” David Graeber, The Utopia of Rules Dedicated to the memory of David Graeber. Rest in power.  Recently, I sat down with Nate and Tom, two of the co-hosts of Works in Theory podcast, to commemorate the passing of David Graeber. Together, we read through my favorite Graeber essay, “What’s the Point if We Can’t Have Fun?” and discussed everything from anthropocentrism to economics to joy and the jubilee of play.  Read “What’s the point if we can’t have fun?” by David Graeber.

    Episode 148: "A Simple Country Lawyer Fighting Fascism and Baking Cookies"

    56:43

    I recently sat down with the folks behind the forthcoming documentary East of Town to talk about immigration, justice, and borders in the Deep South town of Lumpkin, GA. Our sprawling conversation touched on a whole lot--from the depressing constancy of immigration policy in the so-called U.S. to fortress Europe and the global regime of border violence enforced across the planet.

    Episode 147: "Verdant, Phantasmagoric Futures" ft. Solarpunk Magazine

    1:05:48

    This week, Justine and Hal join us to discuss the brand new Solarpunk magazine! In this wide-ranging conversation, the three of us define “solarpunk” as both a literary/aesthetic genre, but also as a way-of-life. We pick apart the anti-authoritarian impulse implicit in the name “solarpunk,” but also problematize the limitations of aesthetic revolt. Our dialogue touches on the tensions between (post-)humanism and biocentrism, abolishing anthropocentrism, anti-capitalism in solarpunk, queer and liberatory story-telling, and so much more!  Production Note: I mention at the top of the episode that this is Ep. 146, but it’s actually Ep. 147.  Visit Solarpunk magazine’s website and sign-up to be notified of their Kickstarter, which launches October 1, 2021!

    Ep. 145 of Coffee with Comrades features a conversation with Geo Maher, author of the new book A World Without Police: How Communities Make Cops Obsolete.

    Episode 144: "May All Your Wandering Lead You Home" ft. Jay Dragon

    1:10:56

    I recently sat down with Jay Dragon, lead designer behind Possum Creek Games and developer of the new tabletop roleplaying game, Wanderhome. The two of us proceeded to have quite a lovely conversation that I’m so excited to share with you today. Jay is wonderful and the insight, passion, and heart Jay brought to this dialogue was beautiful to behold. Jay and I talk a lot about the mechanics behind Wanderhome, discuss the “GM agnostic” systems of Wanderhome, get into the weeds of the different philosophies behind game design, discuss the pastoral, gentle adventures of player-characters in the world of Hæth, and speak at length about queerness in the tabletop gaming space. I cannot recommend Wanderhome enough, regardless of whether you’re a veteran TRPG player or a total novice! Visit Possum Creek Games’ website and pick up a copy of Wanderhome today!
