Episode 8: Re-enchanting the world through commoning: the work of Silvia Federici

In this episode I discuss the radical potential of re-commoning social reproduction, or the work of everyday life that is necessary for human existence, by exploring the newest book by feminist Silvia Federici. Is this the realm in which we might collectively dream and create a new world?
