Episode 4: Bernardine Dohrn

When Alice asks the Cheshire Cat which way she ought to go, the Cat responds, “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.” Alice says she doesn’t much care where she goes, to which the Cat says, “Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.” We spend this episode exploring our radical dreams, and imagining where we’d like to go, accompanied by the radical poet, Martin Espada, and legendary activist, Bernardine Dohrn.


Free write

Inspired by the poem “Imagine the Angels of Bread” by Martin Espada write wildly. Write 10 or 20 lines, each line beginning “This is the year…” then moving towards upending some injustice you perceive in our shared world. This is not so much a new year’s resolution, but a call to arms.
