The Commons

In this podcast (originally broadcast on 4ZZZ on 28.2.19) we are talking about 'the commons' - what and where are 'commons', and how can 'the commons' and projects of re-commoning help us craft more ecological sound and socially just modes of living together?

To do this we'll be playing/talking through materials from an event hosted last year at the Griffith University Ecocentre, where Tim Hollo presented his Griffith Review essay "The commons and the Commonwealth". We'll read through his essay (the audio recording was corrupted), and listen to some responses to Tim's essay, including one from the incredible Dr Mary Graham.


BONUS CONTENT I'll be ranting about how critiques of 'the commons' have a sordid history rooted in white supremacy. Enjoy!

Grief in the Anthropocene Part 1

Mid-2018 Anna and Nat did a mini-series on the grief in the Anthropocene - grief in capitalism, loss, ecological grief, extinction, and more. In this first show we dug into grief generally - we asked what is it, how do we understand it, how it moves in movements, how it moves us, and what are its politics and affects?

This series is a bit dark and heavy at times, but we’ll be thinking about care-full approaches to grief, how it operates between and across people and spaces and groups, and try and talk our way into modes of operating within grief that nourish hope & possibilities too.
