Many will know (and love) it already, but for those that don’t we’re pleased to share here Antipod: A Radical Geography Podcast and Sound Collective.

Antipod is a radical geography podcast and sound collective.
This podcast is intended for anyone interested in and committed to life and liberation around the planet. Antipod amplifies and harmonizes with vital perspectives on how to get free and stay free. Antipod is a polyvocal podcast that takes place across geographically dispersed localities.
Antipod is also more than a podcast: It is a soundscape of radical human geographies. It is a place to conjure and to amplify sonic liberation. It is an attunement to the tone and the pitch of revolutionary life. Antipod is a site of inquiry and a venue for the co-creation of folk theory. It is an instrument with which to ground a common geopolitical education across various media, technologies, and contexts.
Antipod is an inclusive and interdisciplinary space for radical geography. We listen to each other, together.
Antipod makes radical geographic research that is marginalized within the academy more widely available in new ways. We bring radical people and collectives together so that we can share knowledge, ask new questions, and sustain frameworks and methods that are under-represented in the discipline.
Antipod also makes research in radical geography accessible beyond the academy, particularly for people who are often prohibited from engaging with institutionalized research due to paywalls and highly specialized language and formats.
Antipod is a living archive of this work.
Antipod is for you.
