The Debt Collective has a new project: Canceling probation debt of formerly incarcerated people. They’re actually doing it, for tens of thousands of people—and setting out to abolish bail debt completely in California. Astra Taylor explains how they’re going about it, and reports on the continuing campaign to get Joe Biden to use executive action to cancel student debt.

Plus: John Coltrane was the tenor player who started out with Miles Davis in the 1950s and then in the mid-’60s set out to pursue music as a quest for spiritual enlightenment. His most popular work was A Love Supreme. Now, a live performance from 1965 has been discovered and released—and Coltrane people are calling it “nothing short of a revelation.” We’ll talk about Coltrane’s place in Black culture with Adam Shatz.
