Dana Williams and I discuss "trust." In particular, we discuss the trust of government, science, the vaccine, and each other.  For good measure, we threw in a conversation on anarchy.  Join us! 

Dana Williams is an associate professor of sociology at California State University, Chico. He is the author of Black Flags and Social Movements: A Sociological Analysis of Movement Anarchism and co-author of Anarchy & Society: Reflections on Anarchist-Sociology, as well as the author or co-author of over 30 research articles and book chapters on topics ranging from aging and longevity in radical movements, attitudes towards police violence, Critical Mass bike rides, municipal-level climate change policy, racial reconciliation coalition-building, Black anarchism, American attitudes about the use of military force, Amazon and technology, Native American mascots and nicknames, and anarchist studies. He has recently completed a new book manuscript entitled In Us We Trust: The Benefits of Solidarity and Anti-authoritarianism.
