Philip Farruggio

Phil read his review of the film Nebraska which was published in print form on TruthOut. Mike, Chuck, and Phil discussed some of the points he’d made:


Anthony Rayson

Anthony was on his way home from the Law and Disorder Conference and stopped to talk to us. He shared news about the conference, as well as prisoner writings he’d presented there.


Michael Annis

Michael presented a selection from Brave New World Order, a book to be published in 2015 that draws from prizewinning work he originally wrote in the ’90s. It was another striking performance.
