Delete Your Account – Episode 14: Changing Minds
On this episode, Roqayah and Kumars talk to Bryan Quinby and Brett Pain, co-hosts of Street Fight, an anarcho-comedy radio show that airs weekly on WCRS in Columbus, Ohio, and is also available via podcast.
We find out how Brett and Bryan got involved in political talk radio, and how their politics have evolved over time. We discuss their past lives as conservatives and what caused them to eventually see both American political parties as not being for them. We ask Brett and Bryan about how having kids has molded their politics as well.
Finally, we discuss the importance of understanding where people are coming from and having compassion for their unique situations, and how understanding and compassion are different from tolerating dangerous and reactionary ideas or actions. In order to be successful as a political organizer, you need to be able to change minds, and Brett and Bryan give us some insight into the minds of people we need to bring along in any political revolution.
