Nothing better

I’m a labour scholar, and can’t say enough good things about the program. I love that it has interviews with labour organizers AND with scholars and authors about recent books. I tell all my friends, and will be using the podcast as a teaching tool in my courses. Devai!! In solidarity, Shae

Most informed podcast

I absolutely love this podcast!

In a world where facts are so often skewed and the truth is difficult to come by I find better off red extremely refreshing. They analyze issues from the heart of them - whether it be indigenous people, class struggle or capitalism - they approach the issue not from a right or left wing perspective but from a human one. We need information like this disseminated. I hope this podcast will be successful in creating change!

One small critique guys - sometimes, like in the gilet jaunes epdisode - the music is too loud in the background when people are speaking and I can’t hear what you are saying. Love the pod!!

Current, insightful, and inspiring

If you’re looking for a podcast that talks about socialism, what is means to be in solidarity, and why socialism should be the way of the world AND a podcast that talks about socialism history, and how we can bring it to modern day life, then this is for you!

I started listening to BOR out of curiosity and frustration for the current world situation. The conversation at the beginning of each episodes are very thoughtful and great to hear other perspectives. What I love most about the episodes are that they are current and relevant to the world situation and what is happening right now. The guest that they bring on are very good and knowledgeable, and talk about things from many different perspectives.

I think everyone should listen to a few of these podcasts even if they are not socialist. The word socialist, for lack of better terms, has a very negative stigma. What this podcast is trying to do, in my opinion, it is spreading the truth about what socialism is and how we can have a socialist world.

What is also great is that Dave listen to their listeners and respond to the many facets of socialism a.m. trying to cover various topics. Keep up the good work and I look forward to each weeks episode.
