We had a chance to present on a panel at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit earlier this summer with two of the hosts of Suena, Paola Quiros and Krusheska Quiros. This is a little interview we did with them on the grass outside the conference, just before a big rain storm!
If you’ve never heard of Suena A Revolucion, it’s an amazing Spanish-language podcast that profiles revolutionary, and especially feminist music from across Latin America. Even if you don’t understand Spanish, you’ll love the music, so check it out!
Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! This week, we’re very proud to bring you our annual International Women’s Day special.

Welcome back for another weekly edition of The Rebel Beat! This week it’s our favourite time of the month, that time when Frank from Sumedia.tv comes in to studio to share what’s been going down on his TV show, and play some wicked riotous tunes.
This week, we have an interview with Austin, TX-based anarchist organizer and author Scott Crow, talking about the shit-show that is the US election circus. We also talked about recent global anti-fascist and feminist actions against Pegida and Roosh V (a so-called “Pick-Up Artists” who supports the legalization of rape). And, because the WHOLE WORLD was talking about it, we threw in a bit of Super Bowl 50 commentary. But don’t worry, just a bit 😉
And of course, plenty of revolutionary music. See the amazing playlist below! Continue reading →
