Read Rebel Repeat

Society & Culture

What makes books an integral part of our lives? Why do we read, resist and fight? What makes individual women heroes of their stories? Read Rebel Repeat is exploring these and more, join us as we document remarkable tales of resistance.

In the first episode, I talk to Purbasha Sarkar about books, comics and life in general. Clubhouse and Chetan Bhagat make a modest appearance. But the star of the show is Selma James. Listen to know more about her.

Here some journalists Purbasha mentions- Vincent Bevins, P. Sainath, Ryszard Kapuściński, John Reed, Seymour M. Hersh, Eduardo Galeano, Joe Sacco (books by him - Palestine, Footnotes in Gaza)

Books mentioned in the podcast- Let me speak! Testimony of Domitilo, a woman of the Bolivian Mines by Domitila Barrios de Chungara with Moema Viezzer, Sex, Race and Class by Selma James.

P.S. If you get past the obvious awkwardness in the beginning, you’ll find stellar ideas, awesome book recommendations and lots of giggles :)
