This week, Pearson got to sit down for a whirlwind conversation with scott crow, anarchist, author, purveyor of fine records, and long-time community-organizer. We chat about scott’s radicalization, compassionate self-critique, the shortcomings of mass movement-centric forms of organizing, media and perception, and so much more. 


  • Intro: “I Ain’t Got No Home in this World” by Woody Guthrie
  • Interlude: “Ideas of Collective Liberation” by World is Our Country & scott crow 
  • Outro: “Strip Mall Church” by Televangel & scott crow
