#186 – The Anarchists Cook Book

The Anarchist Cookbook, first published in 1971, is a book that contains instructions for the manufacture of explosives, rudimentary telecommunications phreaking devices, and related weapons, as well as instructions for home manufacturing of illicit drugs, including LSD. It was written by William Powell at the apex of the counterculture era in order to protest against United States involvement in the Vietnam War. In this episode, the Nerds talk about the instructions the book contains and many of its failures.

My name is Myles Power, and I run the educational YouTube channel, powerm1985. I spend what little free time I have sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest, and angrily ranting at pseudoscience proponents. I am also one of the founding members of the podcast 'The League of Nerds' - which I co-host with James from 'The History of Infection'.

  1. I remember getting my copy of this in the early 90s or thereabouts. We downloaded it off some bulletin board and then printed it out onto a stack of A4 sheets.

    I still have them. 😉
