In this week’s episode of Coffee with Comrades, we are pleased to welcome for the very first time the one and only Mel, our new co-conspirator and co-host for the show. We’ve got a jam-packed episode for y’all, but before we get there, we’re excited to announce we’re bringing back the current events section at the top of the episode.
Mel and Pearson share a critical reflection on the Midwest Left Assembly, a regional conference that brought together organizers, educators, and revolutionaries from across the midwest for a weekend camping conference. We talk about base-building, regional networking, and how to build authentic solidarity with our comrades. Above all, we wrestle with how to overcome the loneliness and isolation endemic to late-stage capitalism by reclaiming intimacy through revolutionary vulnerability.
