Always a pleasure

This is probably my favourite podcast -- one of those experiences that really makes your head feel light with the generosity of insight. A lot of the "progressive" political podcasts currently in vogue fall at the feet of otherwise suspect American institutions because they locked horns with Trump this week, or gave Michelle Obama a sweetie, but The Dig, for me, really manages to provide listeners with a lot of useful terminology for dealing with our terrible terrible epoch and doesn't accept so much as given. A recent episode with Nancy Fraser gave me the term "boundary struggles" to put alongside Marx's "class struggles", which is how she refers to the way social actors deal with delineations like economy/society, production/reproduction, work/family; shifts among which can be transformative. (I can't do the idea justice here but I was really grateful for the new toolkit.)

Lexit naivety

Failed to explore key questions: what impact will hard Brexit have on living standards (not least in Bridgend & Swindon as car factories close)? When the big issues - migration, tax avoidance & climate change - need international action, why leave the pan European club?

Fantastically measured podcast

This is such a fantastically measured podcast. Terrifically knowledgeable presenter with great guests. I love it and wish I could contribute on patrion but I can't cause I'm poor.
