During our discussion, we touch on how Sole began making music and what he has in store for us this year, including yet another brand new album with DJ-Pain 1, No God Nor Country, as well several solo studio releases. We also talk about the rise of the podcast as a medium for sharing radical ideas, as well as the origins of the Channel Zero Network.
Finally, we hit on the state of the music industry in an age of corporate streaming services like Spotify and YouTube, touring, the growth of the anarchist and antifascist music scene, permaculture and farming projects, and the benefits and realities of rural organizing.
