Video: Orwell and Resistance (Nov. 2018)

Last month I did a pair of public events with Eric Laursen, in which we discussed George Orwell and Alex Comfort, war and peace, blacklists and totalitarianism, his book and mine.

Video from one of those talks, at Red Emma’s in Baltimore, is now online.  I haven’t watched the video, so I can’t speak to its overall quality, but I remember it was a good conversation.  Eric said some smart things, and I did my best to keep up.

Act Out! interview about policing (September 2018)

I forgot to link to it at the time, but last month I was interviewed by Eleanor Goldfield for the Act Out! Podcast.  We talk about the history of policing, from slave patrols to militarization, and the challenges of creating alternatives.
