Digestible Lessons on Where We’re At

Essential listening for understanding the political power of the American Right - this is a podcast for learning more about conservatism, liberalism, and generally being able to navigate through what might otherwise feel overwhelming and complicated so as to retreat from the lessons surrounding our political moment. The Left needs to provide alternatives and have a deep understanding of what we’re up against - this helps provide a framework to be able to push through and build power - Couple this podcast with Working Class History & BeLabored and you’re getting a pretty solid education through casual listening.

Great so far!

I’m really enjoying this. As someone on the left, I think it’s important to learn the ideological origins of contemporary conservatives and logic that underlies their political theories. Too often the left engages the right by labeling them as racists, classists, cruel, or whatever. While those normative arguments are important, you have to engage the right more deeply to have an actually responsive political philosophy. I’m hoping that in later episodes discuss how the left can be responsive rather than just reactionary to conservative thinking.

Essential listening

This is a fantastic podcast. There are a bunch of leftist podcasts out there, but not many feature the voice of someone who had previously been a conservative. Matt is perfectly “cast” alongside Sam to produce valuable exchanges that have deepened my understanding of both modern and historic conservatism.
