Welcome back to another podcast of The Rebel Beat – your weekly dose of musical anarchy and class war on the dance floor!

Our good friend Frank from Submedia.TV was back in studio this week to spin a wicked set (Alas & Savage Fam, Comrade, Run the Jewels, etc.), to chat about COP21 in Paris, and a recent Line 9 shutdown that he documented (check the video below!). We also hear an interview with the brilliant independent climate journalist Dahr Jamail.

Our other special surprise guest in studio this week was DJ Grenadier of Radio 613, who also threw down a nice set from LAL, Kevin Coval, Marshia Celina, and others.

Be sure to check back with us this week for our Best of 2015 podcast! We wanna hear from you! What were your favourite rad songs, videos, or albums of the year? Email us at, or hit us on Twitter @rebelbeatradio.
