about

The Fire These Times is a weekly podcast by Lebanese writer Joey Ayoub dedicated to tackling the 21st century from a variety of critical perspectives. Topics include: solarpunk, anti-authoritarianism, feminism, decolonialism, degrowth & postgrowth, international solidarity, and the climate emergency.

It is named after James Baldwin’s book The Fire Next Time.

It is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Anchor, Breaker, Amazon Music, Audible, Stitcher, Radio Public, Pocket Casts, Castro and RSS.

It is also on YouTube.

If you like what I do, please consider supporting this project with only 1$ a month (or 10$ a year) on Patreon or on BuyMeACoffee.com. You can also do so directly on PayPal if you prefer. Patreon is for monthly/yearly, PayPal is for one-offs and BuyMeACoffee has both options.

A previous incarnation of the podcast was called Hummus For Thought and the website still exists now as a monthly newsletter. For an archive of my writings, please visit joeyayoub.com. I also have a carrd profile with a bunch of links.

You can also follow the podcast on Twitter and Instagram.


I can usually be reached by email and I try and respond within a couple of days!
