Our special guest on the show this month is Dio Ganhdih! Dio Ganhdih is a queer Indigenous MC, with roots in Awkwesasne Mohawk territory, and now based in NYC. She’s part of the epic Revolutions Per Minute family, and spits absolute fire on the mic. Check her out!

Hey listeners, welcome back to another edition of The Rebel Beat, a Firebrand Records podcast! We are your monthly one-stop anti-shopping for everything about politics, revolution, and music – class war on the dancefloor.
Our special guest on this month’s show is the long-time anarchist agitator violinist Norman Nawrocki. You might know Norman as one of the founding members of Rhythm Activism or Bakunin’s Bum in Montreal, or you might know him from his prolific poetry and prose. He just released his most recent illustrated novel “The Legend of the Rat King” on AK Press, and we met up with him in his Montreal apartment to talk about that, and more.
