We're joined by geographer and filmmaker Dr. Nerve V. Macaspac to talk about the history of the Philippines, its Maoist insurgency, and the rise of Rodrigo Duterte. We also talk Amazon, red-lining, Marxist geography, and Presidential foot fetishism. The last part of the episode is a discussion of Nerve's work on autonomous territories in Colombia, Mexico, and the Philippines that have earned some form of autonomy after decades of brutal armed struggle.
A long episode just too good to cut down! A 50th Anniversary of the foundation of the Filipino Communist Party spectacular!
