Final Straw: In Defense of Looting with Vicky Osterweil

Long-running anarchist radio and podcast show The Final Straw speaks with Vicky Osterweil about their recent book In Defense of Looting.

This week we are getting the chance to air a conversation that I had with writer, anarchist, and agitator Vicky Osterweil about her recently published book In Defense of Looting, a Riotous History of Uncivil Action published  (Bold Type Press, August 2020). We get to talk about a lot of different topics in this interview, how the book emerged from a zine written in the middle of the Ferguson Uprising of the summer of 2014, its reception by the far right and by comrades, her process in deciding what to include in this book, the etymology of the word “loot” and ensuing implications thereof, why you should totally transition if that’s the right thing for you to do, and many more topics!
