#027: The LGBT Working Class vs. Rainbow Capitalism (w/ Eric Pierce)
Play • 42 min

We spoke to one of our supporters and comrades, fellow mental health and social worker Eric Piece about the intersections of LGBT issues and capitalism. Eric identifies as a gay man and just as strongly as a union member and socialist. He highlighted the ways labor unions have always offered stronger protections for the LGBT community, and some of the pitfalls of thinking of LGBT people first as people with sexual orientations and gender identities as opposed to people with material, class interests first. How did Pride get co-opted and commodified? Why are white gay men painted as gentrifiers in diverse urban environments? Did Reagan use the AIDS crisis of the 1980s to divide and conquer the working class? All of this and more in this episode.

Episode 121: "Awkward Armor" ft. Pynk Spots
In this episode of Coffee with Comrades, I am joined by Nic, host of our Channel Zero Network sister-show, Pynk Spots, to chat about managing shyness and introversion in media work, teaching, and community-organizing.   This wide-ranging conversation covers it all: prepping for public speaking, decentering yourself at rallies and demonstrations, figuring out how to cope with introversion, mitigating awkward situations, commiserating over embarrassing moments, etc. The fist half of our dialogue covers tips and tricks. The second chunk deals with how to apply these lessons to organizing in your own community, whether you're doing community gardening or engaging in militant direct action. * Follow Pynk Spots on Twitter and Instagram and subscribe to their YouTube channel!

The Contactee Experience: The UFO Phenomenon As Examined by Carl Jung and Jacques Valée (with Andy from Caïna)
*CW: discussions of psychological trauma, sexual assault, suicide, depression, and anxiety* Welcome to the first episode of the new series ‘Inner Experience’ from Acid Horizon! A show about exploring our consciousness, the weird, the eerie, and the beyond. For this episode, Craig, Will, and Adam are joined by Andy (@cainalikehyena), the Black Metal and Industrial maestro behind Caїna and Ritual Object, to discuss his 'inner experience' of UFOs and of communion with a liminal unknown. As conceptual tools to guide us on our way, we read Carl Jung’s 1959 Text Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies as well as Jacques Vallée’s work on the cybernetics of the UFO phenomenon as a behavioural ‘control system’ in his text Dimensions. We also discuss H.G. Wells, Leibniz, Aleister Crowley, Hegel, Whitley Strieber, and the intersection of the early US Labor Movement and alien contact.  Link's to Andy's music: https://cainaband.bandcamp.com/album/take-me-away-from-all-this-death https://apocalypticwitchcraft.bandcamp.com/ https://ritualobject.bandcamp.com/ Contribute to Acid Horizon: https://www.patreon.com/acidhorizonpodcast Subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts: https://tinyurl.com/169wvvhi  Happy Hour at Hippel's (Adam’s blog): https://happyhourathippels.wordpress.com New Revolts (Matt’s Blog): https://newrevolts.com/ ​Revolting Bodies (Will's Blog): https://revoltingbodies.com ​Split Infinities (Craig’s Substack): https://splitinfinities.substack.com/ ​Music: https://sereptie.bandcamp.com/ ​Merch Store: http://www.crit-drip.com

Episode 196 - Love and Class War
Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the hour by independent labor journalist Sarah Jaffe, reporting fellow at Type Media Center, cohost of Dissent Magazine’s Belabored podcast, and the author of two books: Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt, and a new book out now from Hurst and Bold Type Books, Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone. In her new book, Sarah examines the expectation in the neoliberal era that we should love our work, and documents the resistance of workers who fight back against the “labor of love” myth by organizing. Sarah and Kumars discuss the main themes and historical background of the book, highlighting the commonalities between workers in sectors as disparate as social work and professional sports, as well as the roots of their contemporary struggles in the development of capitalism. They round out their discussion by reflecting on the obstacles to and possibilities of working-class politics in the 21st century, including the idea of the “professional-managerial class” (PMC) and the relevance of Marxism today. Follow Sarah on Twitter at @sarahljaffe, keep up with her work on her personal website sarahljaffe.com and workwontloveyouback.org, hear her on the Belabored podcast, and don’t forget to pick up a copy off Work Won’t Love You Back.
