Zach D Roberts and Aaron Cynic are back with a conversation about Occupy Wall Street, which turns 10 years old on Friday, September 17th.

No OWS hasn’t been occupying Zuccotti Square for 10 years but the legacy OWS lives on in many forms. There’s no Bernie presidential run without OWS, there’s no conversation about the 99% without OWS – we could go on – but that’s why we recorded this podcast!

Zach was in NYC for the occupation at Zuccotti aka Liberty and Aaron was in Chicago’s financial district and Grant Park.

I was beaten several times and arrested at OWS #D17 along with hundreds of other journalists and activists. This is an excellent report detailing some of them.
