Welcome to the first episode of the Love From Tokyo podcast. This podcast focuses on politics and activism in Tokyo and the wider region.
For this first episode we took the opportunity to interview our friend Nick Southall who was in Tokyo for the Love as Politics seminar at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies on Saturday 16 February. In this podcast, Nick talks about love as a form of class power.
The full text of Nick’s talk is available here and you can also read more of his work on his blog, Revolts Now. In 2016 Alexander interviewed Nick about his experience growing up in the Communist Party of Australia, the results of which can be read on The Word From Struggle Street (part 1, part 2, part 3).
