Here's a little Thanksgiving bonus for you all: Producer Chris talks to members of the Tallahassee DSA about their disaster relief efforts after Hurricane Michael. They discuss their idea of "disaster socialism": the opportunity to bring networks of solidarity created by organizations like DSA to direct aid of afflicted communities in the wake of these (increasingly frequent) climate disasters.
