Cornel West Interviews Bob Avakian:
Get the Word Out, Spread the Link All Over, Organize Listening Parties

This weekend and in the coming week, the revolution will be crackling on the airwaves. The Smiley & West radio show on PRI (Public Radio International) will be airing an interview that Cornel West recently conducted with Bob Avakian. And an online podcast is now available.

This interview is sharp and wide-ranging, challenging and inspiring. Cornel West, a prominent public intellectual, engages with Bob Avakian, the leader of the revolution in this country. The importance of this exchange getting out broadly into society should not be underestimated–and in fact, the reach and impact of this interview must be maximized in a thousand ways.  

Right away:

  • People should get the word out to contacts, friends, co-workers, and e-lists.
  • People should be posting links to the interview on blogs, FaceBook pages, and use Twitter and other social media to extend the reach and impact of this interview.
  • People can organize listening sessions of the on line podcast of the interview when it is aired in local areas. A version is also being aired on hundreds of stations across the country. (Get Station schedules here.)   Get together in neighborhoods, in dorms, elsewhere.
  • Revolution newspaper needs to learn about the buzz generated by the interview: the discussion and controversy it is touching off, what people are asking about, ideas people have for spreading the interview and using it as a way to introduce people to the revolution and its leader.
