Boom! We’re back with the latest edition of The Rebel Beat podcast!
So an election is upon us in the USA. Fuck Trump. That’s obvious. But fuck Hillary, too. Whoever wins, we will all resist.
Before jumping into things, we have some exciting news – we just launched a Patreon support page for this podcast! If you love what we do, please consider supporting us with a small monthly donation! Head over to www.patreon.com/rebelbeatradio to pledge your support today!
We’re gonna be rolling out some wicked swag for our supporters, including enamel pins, t-shirts, and exclusive mix-tapes!
This podcast will always be free, but producing it isn’t. If you can kick $1, $3, or $5 per month, it’s a small amount for you, but it means the world to us.
And now back to business – our special guest on the podcast for this month is the incredible bell’s roar! bell’s roar is an Albany, NY based solo artist with Firebrand Records who produces sultry, sweet political indie-pop music with tinges of ambient and soul. Their music reflects on love, struggle, queerness, and being Black in America. Plus, they’re also a furniture-maker!
We had a wonderful chat about their music, politics in the USA, and also the awesome Art Funds Art tour they’re organizing to support trans artists of colour! Check it out and support!
And finally, in our Turn it Up segment, we give a nod to Indigenous resistance against the Petronas/Pacific Northwest fracked gas terminal in so-called “BC, Canada”. For more info on that struggle, and ways to support, go here:
