Good pods about God, politics, and society in the Anthropocene.

    SPC UNCUT, UNEDITED, and EXXXXXXTREEEEEME: 2021 in Review, or, What is An Insurrection? / 2022 Predictions, or, Life Will Get Weirder and Weirder, Forever

    SPC UNCUT, UNEDITED, and EXXXXXXTREEEEEME: 2021 in Review, or, What is An Insurrection? / 2022 Predictions, or, Life Will Get Weirder and Weirder, Forever

    2022 - the year of anti-perfectionism! No theme music, probably a random 5 minute coffee break silence, who knows what else. Preemptively canceling ourselves for anything problematic we say, we will do better and try to focus on listening more. 

    Solidarity forever! Insurrections are in fact BAD and democracy is DECENTLY BETTER THAN THE ALTERNATIVE ON OFFER!

    Episode 16: It's Chestertons All The Way Down, Or, "The Great Localism Throwdown of 2021"

    Episode 16: It's Chestertons All The Way Down, Or, "The Great Localism Throwdown of 2021"

    We debate localism! What's the deal with "small is beautiful"? Which way Western person, the Chestertonian pipe-smoker or the DSA industrialist? A debate in which everyone wins

    There are some swears here, and the outro music is an explicit Rage Against the Machine Song (heads up for those of you who email to yell at me for swearing on the SPC podcast when your kids are in the car! and also sorry Mom).

    Episode 14: Demography! Get your Demography here! w/ Lyman Stone

    Audio from an interview recorded in March 2021, and aired at the American Solidarity Party National Convention in July 2021. Some of the events discussed about the early Biden administration may have been rendered moot since then. 

    Thanks to co-moderator Patrick Harris, Chairman of the ASP, for sponsoring.

    Vacation!

    We're on vacation until next week! And a quick read of the most concise yet biting summary we've seen so far of the current efforts of the Paris Climate Agreement.

    Bonus! Ep: Riffing on Ross

    Bonus! Ep: Riffing on Ross

    We gathered this week with the best of intentions, ready to continue our close read of the DSA platform. Except, we ended up talking about this Ross Douthat piece the whole time. So, we interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for a romp through the world of Catholic politics.

    Apologies for a few swears.
