Green and Red Podcast…..for Scrappy Politics, Scrappy History, Scrappy People

Since beginning our podcast in February, Scott Parkin and I have produced and hosted 36 episodes, and we’re really proud of what we’ve done.  We’ve had on scholars and organizers/activists, people who’ve been involved in movements for peace and justice for a long time and are well-known, and younger people who are doing exciting work and creating new organizations and new means of activism.

Below is a list of our 36 episodes so far, both in podcast and, more recently, video form.

There are podcasts  on labor, on activism, on COVID-19, on military and military opposition to Trump, on the history of liberalism, on important events from the past, on Racism and Rebellion, and other topics.  We’ve interviewed people who are doing vital work today but aren’t in the limelight.  We’ve talked about many issues before they became issues in the larger media.  And we’ve had on many guests who’ve offered great advice to activists.

Green and Red is your one-stop shop for radical politics, activism, and history.

So please listen and tell us what you think.  Please share (and follow and like) on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.  Best of all, tell your friends and comrades about Green and Red.   If you’re new to G&R, listen to a couple; if you’re a regular, take the time to catch up; if you have any comments or suggestions, send them to us.

We don’t make any money off this podcast so if you want to help defray expenses you can donate at or become a regular at

Thanks for the support thus far!  We’ve gotten great audience numbers and feedback and we’ve had a lot of fun, and will be going forward with all of you.  We have a world to win!
