Last Born in the Wilderness Episode #200, Featuring Silvia Federici, Dahr Jamail, and Shane Burley [PODCAST]

This is episode #200 of Last Born In The Wilderness. This is something of a highlight reel, featuring numerous segments from previous interviews I’ve conducted and released, with commentary on the underlying themes and threads that tie all this work together. This is a beast of an episode (almost four hours in length), so please take your time!

This episode features segments of discussions with Silvia Federici, Dr. Gerald Horne, Shane Burley, Liyah Babayan, Stephen Jenkinson, Dahr Jamail, William Rees, Dezeray Lyn, Peter Gelderloos, Cory Morningstar, Jasper Bernes, Rhyd Wildermuth, Dr. Karla Tait, Ramon Elani, John Halstead, Charles Eisenstein, Joe Brewer, and Bayo Akomolafe.

As I stated in the introduction and at the end, I will be taking a break from this project for about three weeks in total. I’ll be back July 22nd with a new episode, and back on schedule with regularly released episodes every week from then on.
