Welcome to a very special edition of Phone a Friend, where we reach out to experts, authors and intellectuals who know way more shit about certain subjects than I will ever know. Now this one is a real home game and should prove to be both informative and a lot of fun. He is a Mohawk broadcaster hiding out on Seneca territory in Western New York. John Kane has been the face and voice of resistance and advocacy for decades. He's the host of a podcast called Let's Talk Native, which we've covered before, and Resistance Radio on WBAI and WPFW in Washington.
We've collaborated with John a handful of times over the years. He's a man of great principle who calls truth to power not only in the United States, but to power structures within Native territories as well.
There are a few things we cover with John today, including some rather big news here in New York that directly involves him. Unf*ckers have heard some of his commentary before, but let me warn you that that was scripted. And unscripted John is a force of nature, so hang on.
