Podcast: Jerry Barnett Interview with C-Realm Radio

It’s been a while since I did a Moron-Free Radio Podcast. Meanwhile, I’ve begun a new podcast over at the Sex & Censorship blog (sexandcensorship.org). Here is a recent S&C Podcast, in which I’m interviewed by KMO of C-Realm Radio in Vermont. It’s a long and wide-ranging discussion on sex, censorship, identity politics and the new fascism. If you enjoy, please subscribe to the Sex & Censorship podcast and keep on listening.

Audio: Feminist Porn Awards

Moron-Free Radio is back!

The feminist movement – or at least the part the media pays most attention to – seems to be increasingly puritanical, anti-sex and pro-censorship. And yet, those attitudes aren’t representatives of feminism. For the past few years, Carlyle Jansen has run the Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto. I spoke to her to find out what feminist porn is about.

Pornstars (Audio)

Having encountered many myths and scare stories about the evils of pornography, I decided to ask the people whose voices don’t tend to be heard: the women in the industry. This podcast features interviews with seven British female pornstars.

Fiona Patten of the Australian Sex Party

The Australian Sex Party is a recently-formed progressive political party, with a strong emphasis on civil liberties. Dismayed that none of the mainstream parties were prepared to stand up to lobbyists from the religious right, Fiona Patten and her colleagues founded the new party and stood for election against those who supported the introduction of strong Internet censorship in Australia. Fiona recently visited London, and I took the opportunity to interview her.

Who Killed Smiley Culture?

On March 15th last year, the British reggae artist David Emmanuel, aka Smiley Culture, died during a police raid on his home. The death led to the biggest march by the black British community in 30 years, and a build-up of anger in the inner-cities, adding strain to already tense relations between communities and the police. For this podcast, I interviewed Merlin Emmanuel, who is Smiley Culture’s nephew, and is leading the Campaign for Justice for Smiley Culture, to find out what progress has been made towards understanding the events of that day.

Episode 0: Welcome to Moron-Free Radio

About a year ago, give or take a month or two, I promised I’d release a podcast. I’m sure that you got bored of waiting. But finally, here’s the first episode! My podcast will be called Moron-Free Radio, and in true geek fashion, I’ve numbered the first episode zero. It’s just a three-minute intro; the first full edition will be here in a few days. I’m currently submitting to iTunes, so (provided I get backing from the military-industrial complex) you should be able to subscribe to Moron-Free Radio on iTunes shortly. (Update: you can now subscribe on iTunes).

I’d like to say Thank You to dubstep producers Trapjaw & Switch for creating the theme music to this podcast. This track (Dubslut) will shortly be released as a single via Dubthugz.
