    A Just Recovery

    A Just Recovery

    We all know and hate the COVID-19 pandemic, but what do we do about it? There's a vaccine on the horizon, but what kind of systemic steps might we take to write the massive inequalities that COVID has revealed? This week, we take a look at some of the platforms and campaigns that advocate for a "Just recovery" from our own Christian-Marxist perspective.

    Back in 2018, we made this special episode with Hannah Shanks about Mary, materiality and bodies. It's a rad episode! To celebrate Christmas we're bumping this classic episode to the top of the list!

In this extra credit episode of the Magnificast, Matt talks with Hannah Shanks author of This Is My Body: Embracing the Messiness of Faith and Motherhood (https://www.amazon.com/This-Body-Embracing-Messiness-Motherhood/dp/1935205285)about Mary, The Magnificat, Advent and revolution!

Informal yet informative

While I occasionally have my disagreements, the Magnificast has been very informative, and I can honestly say it has strengthened both my faith and my politics. Look forward to seeing where this podcast continues to go with time.
