Episode 101: “Proletarian Shopping” ft. Vicky Osterweil

This post was originally published on this site

This week, I’m pleased to be joined by the lovely Vicky Osterweil, author of the new book In Defense of Looting: A Riotous History of Uncivil Action. In this wide-ranging conversation, we talk about the inextricable nature of class and race, the abolition of whiteness as a necessary step for police and prison abolition, the efficacy of riots, and why joy is what scares cops and politicians the most whenever the looting starts. 

Music: 

  • Intro: “I Ain’t Got No Home in this World” by Woody Guthrie 
  • Interlude: “Start a Riot” by Duckwrth, Shaboozey 
  • Outro: “Blue Lies” by Year of the Knife
