VICE Podcast: The Time Philadelphia Bombed Itself

The VICE Podcast is a weekly discussion which delves inside the minds of some of the most interesting, creative, and bizarre people within the VICE universe. This week, Reihan Salam speaks with Jason Osder, the director and producer of Let the Fire Burn, a documentary that takes aim at the 1985 standoff between the Philadelphia Police and MOVE, a black radical anarcho-primitivist organization. The confrontation precipitated the firing of more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition and the unprecedented decision by the police to drop a bomb onto an American city, which resulted in the deaths of 11 MOVE members and the destruction of more than 60 homes.
