Graeber’s Pirate Enlightenment — Cory Doctorow

Published on: February 14 / 2023

Although we lost David Graeber several years ago, we are still getting the bittersweet joy of reading new books by him. This week, Cory Doctorow joins me to discuss Pirate Enlightenment, or the Real Libertalia, a short book in which Graeber convincingly melds the oral histories he learned while doing doctoral research in Madagascar with 17th century European tales of a pirate kingdom on Madagascar into a swashbuckling tale of an anarchist pirate confederation.
