As if to fulfill one of the cultural stereotypes of Jews as long-windedly talkative, not to mention wandering around seemingly aimlessly from topic to topic (because everything is messy, complex, and somehow interrelated, right?), my The Final Straw Radio podcast interview—related to my latest edited anthology There Is Nothing So Whole as a Broken Heart: Mending the World as Jewish Anarchists (AK Press, with compelling design by @eff_charm)—when transformed into a zine this week, is more of a booklet.
So I’m extra grateful to the wonderful, solid @flora__fauna for all the caring and careful work they put into turning my verbal words into printed words, including layout and design, and of course, the wonderful, solid Scott Stammers for interviewing me in the first place, especially in the fog of trying to be whole again in the liminal space of neither “pandemic” nor “not-pandemic” times, and last but not least, the Final Straw, one of the too-rare and definitely precious anarchist media we should all appreciate and support.
I’m not quite sure what I said in the podcast and now zine version, but several listeners/readers have said it made them cry the good or at least healthy kind of tears, and laugh too, plus it encouraged at least a couple folks to dig deeper into their own ancestors as part of their #MendingTheWorld journey.
If you’d like to read and/or print this new zine—and indeed, a bunch of other newish zines courtesy of the Final Straw—you can find unimposed and imposed PDF versions at thefinalstrawradio.noblogs.org/zines/
