  • The Podcast for Social Research, Episode 14: Violence and Resistance–Frantz Fanon - Ajay Singh Chaudhary, Anjuli Raza Kolb, and Anthony Alessandrin "talk through the life, work, and legacy of Frantz Fanon.... This conversation takes up major texts in Fanon’s oeuvre (Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth) as well as profound theoretical controversies that radiate from them—idiocy, the literary dimensions of Fanon’s work, his strangeness of form and methodology, the psychological inflections of his writing, the political structure of states and colonies, the best footnote in all of twentieth-century philosophy, and particularly the nature and meaning of violence as praxis, 'perfect mediation,' symbol, and atmosphere—violence as reason to despair—and as reason not to."
  • The Elephant - Frantz Fanon the Sage - "In this episode, our host Mshai Mwangola, a performance scholar, speaks to Godwin Murunga a historian and Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Nairobi, setting the context for a series of conversations on National Culture."
