This is Hell!

This is Hell! Radio has been broadcasting and podcasting from Chicago and “manufacturing dissent” since 1996. Between 2014 and 2021, Antidote Zine transcribed over two hundred of their in-depth interviews with scholars, activists, revolutionaries, and journalists on a variety of topics. This is of course only a tiny fraction of the fascinating material they have released, and still release on a regular basis.

Original audio and links to the show’s website are included in each post. Support This Is Hell! on their patronage site! And let us know if there are additional interviews of theirs you would like to see here in text form: antidote[at]riseup[dot]net.
