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.
