I ended up mostly liking it, somehow. Nathan is a bit frustrating to listen to but actually he was more interesting this time than when I've heard him speak before. It also feels like Aragorn left Nathan feeling like he wasn't doing enough and I get the sense that that feeling will haunt him, which I like.
They might do better with a written exchange though, keeping it short.

I do hope they do another episode, it started going in a direction I liked at the end. What I like most about aragorn's interviews is when he cuts through people's rhetoric and asks something like "so what does this actually look like? are you asking me to march every day? etc." I'd like to hear them get more in depth about the role of the academic, without Nathan rambling on in that academic style as much.

If anybody happens to know the differences in position between aragorn and nathan, I'd be interested. Aside from their different life choices, and in spite of the bookchinist NAASN description, I understand both of them to be 'second wave' anarchists, one being a postanarchist and the other being whatever Aragorn is ( - "Pure Black"?).
