Interview #69 - Practical Anarchism with Scott Branson

Updated: Mar 17, 2023

Hey everyone, welcome to another interview from The Mind of a Skeptical Leftist. This is another old one from November but it was a good one. I talked to Scott J. Branson, author of the book Practical Anarchism: A guide for daily life. They are also part of the Final Straw podcast so make sure to check that out for more stuff from them. I know that there has been a lot said lately about Cop City and the Atlanta Forest Defenders and the tragic murder of the activist everyone affectionately calls Tort but this was streamed live on my Twitch channel so if you follow my stuff there you probably already knew about the fight to stop Cop City. Even so I’m way behind on the current news cycle and I definitely want to send love and solidarity to all of those fighting to stop cop city and my heart goes out to the family, friends, and comrades of Tort.

I’ll put some links in the show notes for more information on how you can support the Atlanta Forest Defenders.

I don’t have a good transition into the pitch but I still have to thank all my patrons, especially Justin who bumped up his pledge and Jared who is a new patron.
