    Teaser - PTO Extra! Outsourcing and the UK's Covid-19 shock doctrine w/ Rachel Shabi

    Teaser - PTO Extra! Outsourcing and the UK's Covid-19 shock doctrine w/ Rachel Shabi

    Rachel Shabi joins me to talk about her recent article in the New York Review of Books - 'The Pro-Privatization Shock Therapy of the UK’s Covid Response'. We talked about why the UK Government's response to the coronavirus pandemic was so heavily dependent on outsourcing to private corporations, and whether the UK's very heavy Covid19-related death toll will eventually erode public support for the Conservative government.

    #92 Covid-19 and transforming the global food system w/ Astra Taylor and Troy Vettese

    Astra Taylor and Troy Vettese join me to talk about their recent article in the Guardian in which they argue that the principal driver of zoonotic diseases is the factory farming of animals and that the covid19 pandemic shows that we need to transition away from a meat-centred global food system. We also talked about an article Troy co-wrote in Jacobin, entitled The Climate Crisis and COVID-19 Are Inseparable.

    Teaser - PTO Extra! Sweatshop reshoring - fast fashion and Leicester's lockdown w/ Ashok Kumar

    Teaser - PTO Extra! Sweatshop reshoring - fast fashion and Leicester's lockdown w/ Ashok Kumar

    On the 30th of June the city of Leicester, in the East Midlands of the UK was put back into lockdown following a spike in Covid-19 cases. The new outbreak of the virus put the spotlight on the garment district of the city - where the new outbreak may have emerged - much of which is characterised by extremely exploitative labour practices in small factories serving giant online retailers such as Boohoo and major high street brands. I spoke to Ashok Kumar about the reshoring of garment production in the UK, how Covid-19 has affected and changed the manufacturing of clothes in both the global north and south, and how fast fashion helps to prevent increased investment in technology and serves to maintain labour-intensive forms of production.

    #91 Corona, climate, chronic emergency w/ Andreas Malm

    Andreas Malm joins me to talk about his new book, 'Corona, Climate, Chronic Emergency: War Communism in the Twenty-First Century'. We talked about why in the case of Covid19 most of the rich countries of the north were able to make the kinds of decisive interventions that seem to elude them when it comes to climate change. And we also talked about the experience of the Bolsheviks during the Russian civil war, and why war communism is a better model for the kind of mobilisation needed in the climate crisis than the usual invocation of the ramping of up of industrial production by the Western allies during WWII.
