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.

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

Greatest info available but may cause headaches. Suggestion: turn volume down for listening. Or, maybe put some space between yourself and the microphone? Keep it up! The world needs to know the truth!
