Jamie and Andy are joined by Natasha Lennard (@NatashaLennard), contributing writer at The Intercept and author of "Being Numerous: Essays on Non-Fascist Life," to commemorate Occupy Wall Street's ten-year anniversary. What are people erasing when they remember Occupy solely as something that "changed the conversation" around wealth inequality? How did the occupiers demonstrate anarchist politics in action? And what lessons can we carry into the future as we fight not merely to shore up the system, but to overthrow it?
