This week's episode features a panel discussion from the 8th annual Humboldt Anarchist Bookfaire, taking place in Arcata on January 23rd, 2016. In that panel we hear (mostly) from Doug, Rachel, Adam, Amanda & Jacob of Modesto Anarcho journal and collective as well as the Fireshouse 51 space and other related projects from the Central Valley of California. Their journal, Modesto Anarcho ran from the mid 2000's through the mid 2010's.

Last up, let's hear a track from Cuscutta, an atmospheric black metal band from Colorado in the U.S. The track is called Rented Room and can be found on the album Fodder for the Callous, released on December 30th, 2015. The album is based on 4 poems by Xu Lizhi, a poet and Chinese Foxconn employee who committed suicide on September 30th, 2014 and the content displays not only the alienation of depression in modern societies but that of the factory worker producing smartphones in a Chinese factory for Western consumers.
