In this episode, Gabe talks with Gavin Mueller about Luddism. (Alex's internet died, so she's not part of this one.) What can an insurrection of machine breaking tell us about how solidarity develops? How should we relate to technology, and what role does technology — and opposition to it — play in the development of solidarity?
