Author Aaron Leonard gets down to talk about his new book “A Threat of the First Magnitude” which tells the untold story of the FBI informants who penetrated the upper reaches of organizations such as the Communist Party, USA, the Black Panther Party, the Revolutionary Union and other groups labeled threats to the internal security of the United States. I get a better idea of how Arron got this information, what this book is all about and how it applies to the radical and revolutionary work today. And Arron tells some crazy ass stories about digging through FBI files on revolutionaries and some of he wild shit he has found, and how the US government infiltrated into some wildly high positions and fucked up some great groups. Crazy, crazy shit.

Plus we are gonna listen to some music from Tigerman Woah, Grain Assault, Woody Guthrie and Dave Van Ronk.

Danielle from Out of System Transfer gets down to confront misogyny and patriarchy in the mainstream as well in our every day life, and even in our own underground podcasts. Obviously Trump has called a lot of the worst misogynists to be more bold in our already backward society, we try to get a better understanding of the effects of that, as we also look at the incredible movements that have developed to empower women. We make sense of this moment we are in and talk about the incredible potential for change, societally as well as personally to reach toward genuine women's liberation. We are gonna talk about all of that and Out of System’s up coming national tour, as well as a healthy mouth of trash talking about your favorite bros.

Plus we are gonna listen to some music from Out of System Transfer, Crazy Baldhead, and Troll 2.
