Channel Zero is a newly formed podcast network of several anarchist and anti-authoritarian English language podcasts. We are proud to unveil a 24-7 radical audio stream, and a website that makes it easier for you to discover new radical podcasts or hear an uninterrupted mix of the shows you already love. Our goal is to expand the reach of anarchist analysis into a larger and more public audience, within a horizontally run organization that is lead by the podcasters themselves. Because now more than ever it is vital that we build our own platforms, our own infrastructure and thus, our own power.
2017 has seen the rise of a well funded far right and the normalization of white supremacist ideas everywhere we turn. We see the State pushing for more borders, more prisons, more prisoners, and more wars. We hear calls for kinder, gentler capitalism and kinder, gentler cops. We feel the push of rising tides, desertification and big NGO’s that offer no answers.
Anarchist & anti-authoritarian ideas are a necessary response to the issues that confront us. Channel Zero will distribute audio-zines, dope analytic lineups, and radical music, providing people with an anti State breakdown to fuel true grass roots power, which seeks to abolish all the forms of hierarchy that aim to render us all obsolete. We know that there is no silver bullet, but through dialogue, discussion and education we can arm ourselves with the knowledge and the questions that we need to build the world we want to see — in the ruins of the one that is already dead.
Current shows include: The Final Straw Radio, Kite Line Radio, Rust Belt Abolition Radio, the Crimethinc Ex-Worker Podcast, SubMedia, The Rebel Beat, A-Radio Berlin, The Danthropology Podcast, the Solecast, Which Side Podcast, Resonance: an Anarchist Audio Distro and the IGDCAST — and we’re excited to welome more exciting, beautiful, and engaging projects as we move forward.
