No guarantees that these will be more funny than nightmarishly deranged.
* IMPORTANT note for interview suggestions. Since we're in the relatively early days of this project, people aren't going to drop everything like it's Marc Maron calling them to be a guest. So I will really only consider interview requests that include a serious offer to introduce me to the subject.
Radical Democrats Radio is about taking the substance of our language back from people who want to turn words into fists. That substance has two parts, locked together in a tight, dynamic relationship – Always changing, always feeding back into each other, changing each other. And each one of us in our thoughts and in our lives are making those changes together.
Part one. That big mess we call life. I’m going to be interviewing people from all walks of life, from all corners of society’s margins to all the corner offices that’ll let me in. Or at least Skype me in.
Part two. Concepts. Ideas. Theories. Hypotheses. Questions. How you find answers. Problems. How you understand them. This is that big mess we call the life of the mind.
We'll talk with activists, philosophers, businesspeople, community leaders, journalists, researchers. Ordinary folks leading ordinary lives, going through ordinary problems. Explore these worlds with me. Twenty minutes at a time.
We'll explore the ideas that animate the political movements that shape our society. We'll examine the concepts that we use every day to make sense of the social, moral, and ethical meaning of the crazy, beautiful, frustrating world we live in. We'll introduce you to the history and debates that shaped the political thinkers, leaders, and activists of the past and present. And how those people shape history.
- Short segments of just me on my own meditating on philosophical and political ideas.
- On the spot audio outtakes from protests, rallies, promotional events, live interviews. A few minutes of accidental insight purposefully recorded.
- How about you just tell me what other bonus content you want!
But at this level, $100 every month is guaranteed to go into a fund to promote Radical Democrats Radio with all the power that money can provide in social media advertising and promotion. This is where the broader visibility of Radical Democrats will rise beyond what word of mouth alone can do.
