This week on the podcast, we spend the better part of an hour with the amazing Nantali Indongo (aka. I Am Blackgirl) of Nomadic Massive. Nantali was in studio to talk about a new documentary film “The Ninth Floor“, which looks at the infamous Computer Riot at Concordia University in 1969. We spoke with Nantali about her personal connection to the incident (her father was one of the main activists involved), about the legacy of the affair for the Black community of Montreal, Black youth empowerment, and of course, the new Nomadic Massive album.

Plus we also dropped a set of tunes for Palestine, where sadly Israeli apartheid and racism is raging once again. And finally, we sincerely hope that this will be the last Rebel Beat podcast to come out under the tyrannical regime of Stephen Harper in Canada (although we urge everyone to keep fighting any bullshit politician lining up to take his place). Good riddance, you schmuck.

Enjoy the podcast!
