Chelsea Manning Talks with Nadya Tolokonnikova (Pussy Riot) for the Talkhouse Podcast

Listen to first-hand perspectives from these two well-known activists who have been jailed for their actions and views.

The latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, recorded at Day for Night Festival in Houston, features Chelsea Manning and Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova.

The program includes a talk by Manning on resisting “the data-driven society and the police state”; a conversation between her and Tolokonnikova on their experiences in resistance, incarceration and prison reform; and a talk by Tolokonnikova on bringing “punk feminism” to Russia and the problems with Putin. The two also share their views on how neighborhood communities have better answers than think tanks, the ways empathy can help make real change, and — powerfully — how political action can be more than voting.
