This panel is organized to encourage active dialogue about the explosion of podcasting as a medium, the impact and potential of pods in the broader context of social justice struggles, and how movement-builders and educators can harness the power of podcast creation in the classroom and the community.  The panel will be shaped by the people who show up to engage—it will be as theoretical or as practical, as raw or as gritty as our makeshift community demands. Panelists will discuss how they got started with podcasting and what they’ve learned along the way about start-up, authenticity, and reliability.

  • Damon Williams and Daniel Kisslinger, co-creators and co-hosts, AirGo
  • Zayd Ayers Dohrn, creator and host, Mother Country Radicals
  • William Ayers, creator and host, Under the Tree: A Seminar on Freedom
