We had Cindy on for Ep. 132 of Coffee with Comrades to discuss her latest edited anthology!

We had Shane on for Ep. 131 of Coffee with Comrades to talk about this sensational essay collection!

I recently sat down to interview Eric Laursen for Ep. 130 of Coffee with Comrades!

In Ep. 58: "An Exceptional Lack of Innocence," Danny Haiphong joined us to discuss American Exceptionalism and American Innocence: A People’s History of Fake News—From the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite books of all-time. Top 3, for sure. The Left Page joined us for Ep. 47 and 48 of Coffee with Comrades to discuss Le Guin's magnum opus at length. Seriously, if you haven't read The Dispossessed, stop what you're doing and go read it right now. 

In Ep. 120 of Coffee with Comrades, Pearson sits down with George Schmitz, drummer for the hardcore band Stick to Your Guns, to discuss Gabriel Kuhn's book, Sober Living for the Revolution: Hardcore Punk, Straight Edge, and Radical Politics. We also chat about STYG's EP, The Meaning Remains.

We're excited to bring you a conversation with Harsha Walia, author of Border & Rule, in the near future! Grab a copy and prepare the coffee for what should doubtlessly prove to be a lovely conversation. Ever since I first read Harsha's first book, Undoing Border Imperialism, her scholarship has spoken to me. At Coffee with Comrades, we recognize that every border is a scar cut into the face of the Earth. We must all strive to unbuild walls.

On Episode 8 of Coffee with Comrades, we sit down for a conversation with Mark Bray and Rob Haworth to discuss their upcoming book, Anarchist Education and the Modern School: A Francisco Ferrer Reader.

In Ep. 9: "Remember, Remember the 5th of November," we discuss the motion picture adaptation of Alan Moore's powerful graphic novel, V For Vendetta. We grapple with the story's political themes, the film's lackluster portrayal of its female and LGBTQ+ characters, the problematic antics of its titular "hero," the process of radicalization, and so much more.

Pearson sits down with Shane Burley, author of Fascism Today: What It Is and How to End It, in Ep. 26 of Coffee with Comrades. Shane is a film-maker and journalist based out of Portland, OR. His work has appeared in numerous outlets including JacobinAlternet, TruthOutSalonThinkProgressWaging Nonviolence, and many more.

Ep. 61 of Coffee with Comrades, "Anarchy or Annihilation," features a discussion of Post-Scarcity Anarchism by Murray Bookchin.

In Ep. 63 of Coffee with Comrades, "Exiles from the Future," we sit down for a conversation with Nick Estes, assistant professor at the University of New Mexico and author of Our History is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance. We spend the hour discussing indigeneity, decolonization, revolution, the Red Deal, the Red Power Movement, anti-imperialism, internationalism, and so much more.
