Here's a little Thanksgiving bonus for you all: Producer Chris talks to members of the Tallahassee DSA about their disaster relief efforts after Hurricane Michael. They discuss their idea of "disaster socialism": the opportunity to bring networks of solidarity created by organizations like DSA to direct aid of afflicted communities in the wake of these (increasingly frequent) climate disasters. We also discuss failures of state relief organizations, the presence of right-wing vigilante groups after the storm, and free pizza as praxis.
