Episode 091: 18 Year Old Xiuhtezcatl Throwing Down for The Land & People

 

What’s up! Welcome to the latest edition of The Rebel Beat for November 2018! Our special guest on the show this month is Xiuhtezcatl! Xiuhtezcatl is maybe the busiest, fiercest, and most accomplished 18-year old we’ve ever spoken with. He’s an Indigenous hip-hop artist based out of Boulder, Colorado, a youth activist, and he’s even written a book on resisting climate change. A huge inspiration dropping beats that the next 7 generations can revolt to.

Gritty: The Anti-Fascist Hockey Hero – Changing On The Fly

DpUFmGsWsAEV-pC

 

 

Hey Rebel Beat listeners!

We interrupt our regular programming to bring you another episode of Changing On The Fly, Aaron’s other podcast, that we think you’re gonna love. Check it!


How did Gritty, the new mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers, become the new mascot for the American anti-fascist movement? Gritty is a huge, ugly, scary orange monster, who comes to us at a time when there is an equally huge, ugly, scary orange monster in the White House.

We’re joined on this episode by Mark Bray, history professor & the author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook” to talk about Gritty, hockey, and what the antifa movement actually is. Since we’re talking about Pennsylvania and fascism, we also reflect on the recent tragic synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, and pay our respects to the victims. May their memories be for a blessing.
