 Apocalypse Survival Skill #2: Making Home | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:47:45

During this time of economic collapse, many of us are wondering how we will create and maintain homes, if and when we can’t afford to rent or buy. One answer is to take over vacant homes and buildings, an activity commonly known as squatting. In this episode, Autumn interviews Vikki Law, a prison abolitionist and squatters’ rights activist. Vikki takes us deep inside the story of how vacant buildings in New York City that started out as squats in the 70s and 80s, became permanent homes for their residents. @LVikkiml music by Mother Cyborg and Tunde Olaniran and Trans Alp. - @endoftheworldPC @adriennemaree @meansagittarius

 Staying In with Emily and Kumail | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:08:04

Beloved Survivors, as we work away on our upcoming survival mini-series, we have another special guest treat to share. You might know Kumail and Emily from their collaboration on the 2017 film, The Big Sick. Now they have a super relevant new podcast not about the Coronavirus, but rather about the do’s and don’ts of staying inside during this extremely bizarre situation we find ourselves in. Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani are both writers who work from home. Emily was a therapist and currently is a chronically sick person (see: The Big Sick) who often has to quarantine herself, and Kumail is her main caretaker. The podcast features movie, TV, and video game recommendations along with advice from these long time experts working from home and staying indoors. They also call their friends and family to check in and offer tips on how everyone is keeping their heads on straight while socially isolating. All proceeds from the podcast go to charities for people hardest hit by the virus. To listen to the show, just search for Staying In with Emily and Kumail in Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you listen. We hope you find some comfort here.

 Guest Podcast: Decolonizing the Crone | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:55:17

North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green drops blessings like ripe mango into our laps. Walls breathe a heavy sigh of relief as she shreds the puny narratives we have about who we are and our power to reanimate and reclaim our medicine... our magic. She calls forth specters who resemble our own shadows and reminds us that we can, that we have no choice but to reknit ourselves back together with the medicine that never left us. It sits at the back of our throats waiting for release. It burns. It illuminates. She says... “Medicine is dark and thick like blood” She asks... “Where does your creative medicine intertwine with your work?” She ponders... “How do you court your muse?” She chides... “An anorexic muse is a dying muse” She proclaims... “Medicine informs the muse, the muse informs the medicine. It is a sacred symbiotic relationship” Thank you Mama Jaki. I feel like I left my body several times during our conversation. Thank you for spoon feeding me back myself when I was 5 years old, wise and believed in my own magic.. And so it is on the dark side of the moon.
