This episode is a talk by author Charlie Allison, given at the first annual Upstate Anarchist Book Fair, held May 4 & 5, 2024 in Binghamton, NY. The subject of the talk was Allison's 2023 book, No Harmless Power: The Life and Times of the Ukrainian Anarchist Nestor Makhno.

Makhno and the movement he began are seldom mentioned in most mainstream histories—Western or Russian—mostly on the grounds that acknowledging anarchist politics calls into question the inevitability and desirability of the nation-state and unjust hierarchies.

Charlie Allison is an anarchist writer, storyteller, and activist who lives in Philadelphia.

There are FIVE versions of this talk on the R4A server. All are 58 minutes. VERSIONS 1- 4 CONTAIN POTENTIALLY OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE AS DETAILED ABOVE:

Version 1: Optimized for RADIO PLAY (-24 LUFS 192kbps Mp3).

Version 2: A RADIO READY edit (-24 LUFS 192kbps Mp3). Includes my intro/mid/outro.

Version 3: Optimized for INDIVIDUAL USE (-19 LUFS 128kbps Mp3). Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it uses less storage space on your device.

Version 4: Optimized for INDIVIDUAL USE (-19 LUFS 128kbps Mp3). Identical content to Version 2, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it uses less storage space on your device.

Version 5: A sanitized RADIO READY edit (-24 LUFS 192kbps Mp3) in which I silenced the potentially offensive words. Includes my intro/mid/outro. I added this version (later) in the interest of making the talk more suitable for radio play.

Would you like to:

1. Download all or part of the Essential Dissent archive in a few clicks via OneDrive?

2. Access my audio in .wav format, which is the highest quality and preferred if you do your own edits for later conversion to a different format?

3. Download episodes that have disappeared from R4A?

4. Access extras such as conference journals which give more detailed information about the presenters, panels and sponsoring organizations?

5. Continue doing all of the above even if R4A becomes defunct?

Send an email to wvought at gmail dot com, requesting the archive link. Include Essential Dissent Archive in the subject line.

If you’re affiliated with a radio station, please tell me your radio station’s call letters and the name of your show. If you’re a podcaster, please tell me the name of your podcast. And if you’re an end user who just wants to stream or download some interesting audio, that’s cool too.

The link will give you access to the Essential Dissent archive (including all subsequent episodes) for as long as the archive is available on OneDrive. (If I ever have reason to move the archive I'll send you the new link.)

A big advantage of this system is that if R4A ever stops working or vanishes altogether, I’ll still be able to post new episodes to the archive, and you’ll still be able to download them. In that case I'll send a notification when I post a new episode (but you can opt out of receiving notifications at any time).

You are welcome to share the link with others, but since I will then not have their email address they will not receive notifications, nor will I be able to send them a new link should that become necessary. It’s best to have them contact me to be added to my email list.

No spam, no fee, no BS, and I’ll remove your email address from my list upon request.

DISCLAIMER: By downloading my audio with the intention of broadcasting it, you agree and acknowledge that it is solely your responsibility to make sure your uses of it comply with all FCC regulations.
