Against the Grain

againstAgainst the Grain is a radio and web media project whose aim is to provide in-depth analysis and commentary on a variety of matters — political, economic, social and cultural — important to progressive and radical thinking and activism. We’re based at the studios of Pacifica station KPFA-FM in Berkeley, California.

ATG focuses on meaty theoretical and action-oriented issues that the mainstream media tends to ignore, matters like political economy, the global justice movement, philosophical and cultural ideas, and race and gender relations. We strive to bring these perspectives to the airwaves in a way that’s accessible, engaging, and, most of all, useful to people working for social change.

Please join us, listen in, and let us know what you think. And if you like what we’re doing, pass the word along. You may even want to ask your local community radio station to carry ATG.

Against the Grain is co-produced and co-hosted by Sasha Lilley and C.S. Soong. Contributing producers include Ramsey Kanaan and H.N. Yuen.
