Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
An interview with Ursula Le Guin. Ursula K. Le Guin, who died on January 22, is the author of The Left Hand of Darkness and Dispossessed. She is the author of six volumes of poetry, 20 novels, over 100 short stories, four volumes of essays, eleven books for children, four volumes of translations. Her work transformed the genre of science fiction and fantasy, and her writing was influential, and precious, to generations of readers and writers.
I spoke to her following the publication of her book Voices, which speaks to the importance of critical thinking and the dangers of a society that loses that. It is set in a world where a sort of priestly class has taken over, and reading has become illegal, punishable by death. Much of what she says is even more relevant today, under the anti-science, anti-thought Trump-Pence fascist regime. We also touch on her other writings, the reactions of her readers, and much more.
Two pieces from Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party:
The Terror of Deportations " Millions of Families Split Apart, from BA Speaks: REVOLUTION " Nothing Less!, A speech given in late 2012.
From THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America, A Better World IS Possible, a response to a question about immigrants fighting against everything that is going against them. How can we protect those who need to be on the streets fighting with us, how can we protect the ones that are being targeted directly? How can we get them to be on the streets?  
Ursula Le Guin (Novelist); Bob Avakian (Revolutionary Communist Party)
