Malcolm Harris joins Radio Free Ruin to discuss the unexpected link between Adderall and the Occupy movement, precarity, a chemically-engineered generation dependent on pharmaceutical companies, the unpredictable life of the freelance writer, and why there’s no going back.
During Breaking News, we survey the week’s bad reporting on Apple and Foxconn, the precedent for such labor practices that was set in the Caribbean and South America post-NAFTA, Iraq’s ever-uncertain future, the precarious lives of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, and haunted iPhones.
Malcolm Harris is the life and art editor for Shareable Magazine and also edits The New Inquiry, a journal of cultural criticism. He’s the editor of Shareable’s book Share or Die: Youth in Recession, which will be available as a print edition in April from New Society Publishers. He has also contributed to N+1, Jacobin, YES! and Utne Reader. Find him on Twitter @destructuremal.
