We are Mel and Pearson, co-conspirators and co-hosts of Coffee With Comrades, a weekly podcast that discusses current events, theory, and action through a radical lens. We’re two nerdy-ass graduate students and poets who want to build a better world in the shell of the old.

We host interviews with educators, community-organizers, and revolutionaries of all stripes. We hold round-table discussions on music, film, and literature. We weigh-in on current events from an anarchist perspective. Above all, we seek to serve our communities by elevating the voices of the dispossessed and disenfranchised.

Coffee with Comrades is rooted in militant joy. We make a conscious effort to eschew pretentious sectarian shenanigans. Instead, our hope is to cultivate a warm and inviting atmosphere, like walking into your favorite coffee shop to sit down with some of your closest comrades and share a heart-to-heart conversation.

Like most writers, poets, and podcast hosts, we occasionally struggle to make ends meet. With your mutual aid, we can continue to grow this show. All Patrons who pledge at the $1+ level will be able check out bonus content for Coffee with Comrades, including early releases, a behind-the-scenes look at how the show gets made, and access to a private Discord server. Patrons who pledge at the $5+ level will also receive our digital zine, Coldbrew Chronicles, released every other month. If you pledge at the $15+ level, you'll get a physical copy of the zine mailed to your home address, plus an exclusive poem written just for you. And the rewards keep going up from there. No matter what, we promise to never keep any Coffee with Comrades content locked behind a paywall.

We want to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who listens to and supports our podcast. Without you, this project wouldn’t exist.

Love and Solidarity,
MelPearson
