Interview #66 - Anarchism and Ecology with Chris Scully
Hey folks, welcome to another episode of The Mind of a Skeptical Lefist. This time around I talked to Chris Scully of the podcast Ironweeds and the band Zombie Giuliani. We covered a lot of ground in this chat but for length I did have to cut a little bit because we went so long. We talked about his podcast and co-hosts a little bit, anarchism, social ecology, the environmental crisis that we’re facing, and so much more.
Ironweeds is a podcast where the hosts discuss current events and news items and analyze them using a leftist framework. While the format is fairly common, the hosts of Ironweeds are not. They are clever, funny, knowledgeable people with an obvious care for the well being of others. I highly recommend you check it out. And if you like punk then check out Chris’ band Zombie Giuliani, I can’t say that I’m a big punk fan but I do enjoy listening to Chris’ band.
Last time I talked about leaving a comment if you have ideas about how to reach new people without posting on social media and I got a little bit of help from one listener so thank you very much for that. This episode I want you to send me an email or comment on the video if you know about municipal federations and Bookchin’s view of how we should organize society. Do you like it, think it needs work, or do you think it’s trash? I want to know what you think.
With that it’s time for the pitch before we go into the interview
Thank you to all my wonderful patrons, you make it possible for me to do this show and if I can reach 200 dollars per month I will start paying my guests. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, right now it’s tough to justify paying guests because of the amount of work that I put into each episode and the services that I pay for but if I reach 200 dollars then I can put some of that towards paying guests or paying Justin once we start doing Red Reviews again. The first date for starting Red Reviews is January 3rd, by the way. So, If you want to contribute to me being able to pay my future guests then you can do that at patreon.com/skepticalleftist. Support levels start at a dollar per month or $1.50 for Canadians. If you can’t support me with money then please hit the like button or go and write a review on Apple podcasts or on Podchaser. Make sure to subscribe on Youtube or in the podcast app of your choice so that you get new episodes as soon as they come out.
