Description Please

I listen to this podcast much less than I might if descriptions of the episodes were always, instead of only occasionally, provided. In fact, I'm now thinking of unsubscribing, because I just don't have the time to listen to each episode regardless of content.

Now spreading COVID-19 lies!

3/11/22-todays guest spreading lies that Dr. Fauci paid to have COVID-19 and vaccines are deadly.

Excellent

Wish there were more talks on C Wright Mills. Elite theory. Marxism. And the subject of City stated not just like Washington DC but NYC as a city State and the benefits of city states.

Also hope for more talks on Democratic confederalism with what the Kurds are doing is magnificent
