Israfel Sivad: Author


This weeks guest is Israfel Sivad. Israfel is an author who has built a prolific collection of releases, focused on documenting his personal story of struggles with mental health. His latest book, Disorder, continues in this format, and takes the reader back to the beginning of that journey.

I got to know Israfel in the south-side Richmond Virgina punk rock scene in the early 90s, where both out bands would play shows together, at St Edwards, a local church that let kids out on punk rock shows.
