Coffee with Comrades

Jan 26, 2021

Honestly, this is probably one of my Top 5 favorite Coffee with Comrades episodes so you should probably stop reading this description and just listen. 

No, seriously. 

You sure? 

Okay, then. 

This week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Carla Bergman, one of the authors of Joyful Militancy and co-host of Silver Threads and Grounded Futures, to discuss militant joy. This conversation lead us on a whirlwind of topics. We discussed unschooling, ridiculed rigid radicalism, analyzed Joyful Militancy and The Dispossessed, geeked out over Ursula K. Le Guin's rendition of the Tao Te Ching, talked about Breaking Bad, and generally just shot the shit. 

Truly, it was a lovely time. 


  • Intro: “I Ain’t Got No Home in this World” by Woody Guthrie
  • Interlude: "Whirring" by the Joy Formidable
  • Outro: "Joy Will Find a Way (A Song About Dying" by Bruce Cockburn
