'A Few Words' airs alternating Monday mornings from 6-7AM and attempts to cover two main subjects: dissident politics and indie literature (usually through updates on popular activism to address the former and interviews with authors to address the latter).
On this episode i'll discuss the #ShellNo movement by Greenpeace activists which successfully stopped an Arctic drilling ship, the Department of Homeland Security's monitoring (and implicit intimidation) of the BlackLivesMatter movement, the overly harsh punishment of anti-fur activists being tried as domestic terrorists under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act as well as a half-hour interview with Ashley Byrne, a Campaign Specialist for PETA, about Cecil the Lion and PETA activism in general.
