David Downing, English Department, was interviewed on March 18, 2019, on the KPFA radio talk show Against the Grain, broadcast from Berkeley, California, and also on numerous stations around the country. Founded in 1949, KPFA was the first community
supported radio station in the United States.
The hour-long interview was primarily in response to Downing’s recent essay on the Paris Commune published last year in Socialism and Democracy (and included in revised form as Chapter 9 in his recent book, Just Theory). The audio recording of
the interview is available online.
