Ep # 87: Squatters in The Stag: Adrian Watts on Activism & Squats

Before we dive into today’s episode we’d just like to add a content warning for this episode for sexual assault and drug use.

This week, Familiar Stranger Carolyn sits down with Adrian Watts, a PhD Candidate from the University of Melbourne. Adrian spent his fieldwork in a London squat called The Black Stag. 

Throughout this conversation, Carolyn asks questions around the lifestyle of a squatter, and Adrian helps to paint a vivid picture of the lives that the people living in the Black Stag lived. 

It was a great chat with some thought provoking ideas.
