Terrible.

By Kisupure - Nov 21 2014
Read more
Not in any way an anarchist podcast; does nothing to uphold an anarchist ethic at any point during the show, lots of sympathizing for gross right-wing agendas. Islamophobia, racism, and tolerance for many things that a self-respecting anarchist would not even give the light of day. Also disconcerting is that I have not yet heard anything but straight, white, male voices so far. The circle A logo of the show is completely misleading; this would be much better branded as simply more right-libertarian apologist nonsense.
