DS#101a: Interview with Sofia Ali-Khan

November 12, 2016

To confront the existential horror of President Trump, I'm joined by my longtime activist friend Sofia Ali-Khan. We discuss our lives as progressive rabble-rousers, educators, and Americans. We sort through the problems we face and some concrete steps for action. Let's get to work, everybody!

DS #101: Hecka Rando

October 7, 2016

This week is a random mish-mash of stuff, from mindfulness to Trump. I haven't been saving news articles because the first month of school is always insane. But I still have things to talk about! 

We'll be back soon with a normal show filled with news stories about current events, war, human rights, economics, education, and hip-hop. 

Thanks for listening and please get in touch -- https://twitter.com/DukeSkath

DS #100: Glamour, Guns, and Girlfriends

August 12, 2016

For our 100th episode, we've got something very special: Nothing! (We'll do something special, like a live recording, another time.) Instead, here's a fun-filled breakneck journey through Obama's feminism, Trump's psychosis, TayBot's love for Hitler, and awesome hip-hop from French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux. Enjoy!

DS#99a: Interview with Sarah Schulman

We discuss her new novel The Cosmopolitans (based on La Cousine Bette by Honoré de Balzac), the ACT UP Oral History Project, the Boycott/Divest/Sanctions Movement, writing, politics, life, and a dozen other topics.
