    TPS135 THE MOST RADICAL CLASS | Dan Evans

    TPS135 THE MOST RADICAL CLASS | Dan Evans

    The petty-bourgeoisie is the social base for both modern conservatism - for Trump, Boris and Brexit - AND the contemporary radical left. Yet it is also the most misrecognized and disavowed class, and - as the class of the Chuds and the Deanos -the class it's most permitted to mock. Dan Evans is author of a crucial new book, A Nation of Shopkeepers: The Unstoppable Rise of the Petty Bourgeoisie (Repeater Books), giving a brand new account of the shape of this strange class, and calling for a new radical political coalition of working class and petty bourgeois tradespeople and small business owners. The Deano meme can be found here.

We also discuss the decline of the Scottish independence movement since 2014, Nicola Sturgeon's place in the pantheon of new femme militaristic world leaders, the resignation of New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern, and the sad passing of the titan of left-wing analysis of Scottish nationalism, Tom Nairn.

    TPS43 HITCHES | Ben Burgis DEBATES Peter Hitchens🔓 UNLOCKED

    TPS43 HITCHES | Ben Burgis DEBATES Peter Hitchens🔓 UNLOCKED

    This is an unlocked episode, originally available only to subscribers to Patreon.com/ThePopularPod. Please consider helping us continue by signing up for regular bonus episodes! 
    His support for the Iraq War so obliterated the reputation of Christopher Hitchens on the Left that the millennial and Gen Z socialists emerging since his death in 2011 are barely aware he existed. In a special crossover with Ben Burgis's Give Them an Argument show, we discuss Ben's attempts to change that with a new book, Christopher Hitchens: What He Got Right, Where He Went Wrong, and Why He Still Matters. To help us interrogate Hitchens's many contradictions, we welcome back to TPS his brother, Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens: an author the elder Hitch once described as so reactionary, he felt he should a wear a garlic rosary while reading him.

Really good left podcast - refreshingly lucid

This is really good podcast that people on the left (and others) should check out. Fascinating interviews with serious academics/writers/politicians who are given the time to articulate their points in depth and without interruption. Also steers clear of the cynical, puerile, jargonistic and/or exclusionary tone that seems to dominate left podcasts atm. Strongly recommend a Patreon subscription.
