Shred Radio Ep. 6 – Patrick Johnson-Whitty

Patrick Johnson-Whitty chats with Ruby about the role of classical music in European colonialism, violent gentrification efforts and capitalism’s grip on the lives of all cultural workers. Patrick dreams of a world where his work isn’t funded by blood money, and where every person has the right to develop a thriving cultural life without fear of starvation or houselessness. He also talks about how current conservative unions, like the AFM, are an obstacle to realizing this future. This conversation is a great precursor to Patrick’s upcoming podcast, Classical Traitor 🔥🔥🔥
