Aria DiMezzo - Satanic Trans Anarchist for Sheriff show art Aria DiMezzo - Satanic Trans Anarchist for Sheriff

Mutual Exchange Radio

Aria DiMezzo is a candidate running for Sheriff in Cheshire County, New Hampshire as a republican. She is high priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church, a trans woman, and an anarchist. And she is definitely not a socially progressive libertarian trying to hijack the Republican Party. This conversation was a fun one, unique to have. It is not every election year you see such an interesting candidate running in an election that very few would normally pay attention to, but hey it’s 2020.

Mutual Exchange Radio

Joining me today is Vermin Supreme. You might know Vermin as the satirical presidential candidate from the last few election cycles who ran on a platform of free ponies, or you might just know him as that guy with a boot on his head. But this year, he’s running a slightly different campaign. Rather than his usual dog and free pony show, he’s seriously promoting left libertarian and anarchist ideas such as mutual aid and non-domination to the largely right libertarian audience in the LP.
