Think of “co-ops” and you might conjure up images of bulk food stores and tie-dye wearing hippies. But in the 1970s, co-op wars raged in the Twin Cities, dividing communities and fracturing the young movement.
In this documentary, producer Maria Almli interviews those who were there. Learn how the co-op wars began—when a secretive group in support of Marxist principles began retooling operations for the newly emerging hippie grocery stores—and how members found themselves in the midst of a car bombing and violent takeovers.
On this very special episode of Radio Pocho DJ Miguel Vargas and DJ Ren go around busting ghosts then fight in a karate tournament and win. Then they make a lot of money in the real estate business, buy a tiger, and marry Michelle Pfeiffer. Oh and lastly they prepare for their biggest fight by outrunning a bunch of kids on the streets of Philadelphia. If you haven’t gotten it yet, this episode features some of the greatest songs to ever be paired with a movie montage.
