Podcast: Remembering the Nakba, Imagining the Future w/ Dana El Kurd

I’m joined again by friend of the pod Dana El Kurd, a Palestinian researcher who specializes in Comparative Politics and International Relations. We talked about Nakba Day (May 15), about the importance of reflecting on the past while also trying to plan for the future, and how we can commemorate the Nakba by building bonds across nations and struggles.

This is also the first episode released on a Tuesday! Episodes will from now on be released on Tuesdays and/or Thursday with the long-term goal being two episodes a week. To support this project, keep on reading!

Where to listen

All episodes are first released on Patreon, and you can get them on your Podcast feed by copy-pasting the RSS that appears at the bottom of your page when you join (here’s how) as soon as they’re up. Patreons get episodes anywhere from weeks to days in advance.

The conversation is available on any podcast app such as Apple PodcastsGoogle PodcastsSpotifyAnchorBreakerAmazon MusicAudibleStitcherRadio PublicPocket CastsCastro and RSS. Just type in ‘The Fire These Times’ and you can subscribe directly there.

It is also on YouTube. At the moment the YouTube page is not being updated but it will be in the near future.

Mentions and Recommendations

How to Support

The Fire These Times is independent. Since March 2020, I’ve produced weekly episodes averaging anywhere from 60 to 110 minutes.

With a small amount donated monthly or yearly, you can help expand this project into video essays, public panels, newsletters and more. I also wish to release episodes twice a week. Your support can be for as little as $2 or $5 a month or $20 or $50 a year, which is what most people contribute.

The best way to do so is through Patreon, which will also give you early access to audio episodes, exclusive video episodes, merchandise, monthly hangouts, access to the upcoming book club and more.

But there are also options through PayPal or Ko-fi.com, or BuyMeACoffee.com, .

If you can’t support financially, you can still help get more listeners to this podcast by leaving a review on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Castbox, Podchaser, Podcast Addict or wherever you listen to podcasts.

How to Follow to Get Updates

I’m currently in the process of re-orienting this project away from a dependency on the social media corporations as I find the algorithm they use unethical, not to mention their predatory business practices.

The most reliable ways to get updates of The Fire These Times are through directly subscribing on your favorite app podcast, Patreon, on this website, or via RSS.


I sometimes update on Mastodon, and other times friends of the pod update on Twitter & Instagram 

The best way to reach out to me is simply by email at contact@thefirethesetimes.com
