Amateur but passionate

I don't agree with all of Jack or Zoe's analysis, but they're pretty good and this podcast is badly needed. Not bad for two twenty-somethings (grad students?) in Cleveland trying to live under late capitalism.
I'd enjoy more hosting by Zoe than Jack, more sound design and editing, and you say there's a blog? Does it have links to the articles and studies you cite?

Pretty good

Pretty good if you like to listen to a dude mansplain communist art to a girl who struggles to get a word in edgewise the whole time
