After a much-longer-than-I’d-like break, we are finally back with another episode of the Crafted Recordings Podcast. This episode is an extended discussion of the Commons, with contributions from David Bollier, George Caffentzis, Massimo de Angelis, Peter Linebaugh, and Dr. Bones.
The music came from several sources. Thanks to The Droimlins â€” Eddy Dyer on guitar and Jimmy Otis on accordion â€” with their songs â€œHorse Hooves on the Steppes of Eurasia (765 AD)” and â€œTenement Polka.” Also thanks to Eddy Dyer for his vocals and Ethan Winer for his bass on our punk-tinged cover of â€œYou Don’t Know What You’ve Got” by Ral Donner. Above all, thanks to the birds in the forest for allowing me to record their conversations one morning.
For a detailed discussion on the content of this episode — both on what The Commons is and why I am using the term “magic” to describe it — is available on the writeup over at Gods & Radicals.
