Pretty darn good, but...

Would be great if there were a *little* more explanation on ‘why’ Trotskyists ‘are bad’ (episode 6) rather than assuming it’s self-evident (it isn’t, it’s contested!) and a writing-off of Anarchist thought. Not to mention the zero mention of Social Ecology by Murray Bookchin and works by anthropologist David Graeber: two incredible socialist-Communist minds from academia who will enrich all our understanding - would love to see you tackle their work. Just look at the magic that’s happening in Rojava now thanks to the Kurds and Abdullah Öcalan!
