S1E11 – Mixæl Laufer on open source medical chemistry

[audio src="https://pinecast.com/listen/1bf420f9-ccd3-405f-8a4f-c24ad43d6d9f.mp3" preload="none"]

Episode Notes

In this episode I talk with Mixæl Laufer of the Four Thieves Vinegar about their work offering access to medications that are sometimes unavailable. We discuss their work on the epi-pencil, the open source apothecary microlab, aboritificants, naloxone, and other wet chemistry drugs as well as offering some introductory information about how people extract hormones, insulin, and thyroid. We also talk a good deal about what it would mean to live in a world in which access to life-saving and life-improving medicine is actually accessible.

S1E10 – Paul on Body Armor

[audio src="https://pinecast.com/listen/14c98f9c-ccfe-49a7-9d99-c717bd92df8b.mp3" preload="none"]

Episode Notes

This episode covers what demonstrators might want to know about wearing body armor. We cover the types of armor, how to source them, how to fit armor to different body types, what you can and can’t skip for cost savings, and more.

If you choose to wear body armor, we recommend IIIA level vests for soft armor (bulletproof vests) or level III+ for hard armor (plate carriers). Soft armor is substantially lighter and more convenient, but only protects against handguns.

We are not advocating for escalation, only for individual and community defense and for our ability to continue to demonstrate as safely as we can.
