Patricia Kullberg hosts this episode of the Old Mole which includes a re-broadcast of a show from Against the Grain. C.S. Soong interviews Vijay Prashad about the history of the “Third World Project,” a discussion that sheds light on contemporary political struggles of the Global South.
This year saw the publication of a fifteenth-anniversary edition of Vijay Prashad’s award-winning book “The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World,” which examines the origins, the development, and what the author calls the assassination of the Third World project. Today’s program features excerpts of a two-part in-studio interview with Prashad conducted shortly after the book first came out.
Against the Grain is a weekly radio show hosted by Sasha Lilley and C.S Soong on KPFA Pacifica Radio in Berkley, California. It’s a program of ideas, in-depth analysis, and commentary on political, economic, social, and cultural issues important to radical thinking and activism.
