North Bae 025 - Autism and Antiableism
Rrrrn and Tiberius sit down with local anti-ableist organizer Garrett Winters to discuss issues within both the left and society in general as they relate to how we treat the disabled among us and how we can overcome this. For those who want to learn more about what we discussed and take that and run with it, here's Garrett's list of links and further readings as well as their PayPal support link:

North Bae 024 - DSA Internal Medicine
Time for some Inside Baseball, comrades, as Sauce and Tiberius are joined by guest Valerie Sinclair (https://twitter.com/maruchan1312) to discuss the recent DSA West Coast Regional Convention in LA and generally dive into the internal challenges and structural issues within the DSA. Stick around at the end (at about 49m 28s)to hear why both Sauce and Valerie are running to be on the NPC themselves!
North Bae 023 - With the Federal Government Shut Down Who Will Aggregate Our Dicks?
Tiberius apologizes for missing the "end" of the shutdown, but comrades Mack and Sauce had a great discussion about the shutdown, TSA peeping our junk, and how much NPR sucks with Matt and Anna from the Breadline Podcast (https://twitter.com/thebreadlinepod)
Episode 22 - The Gilet Jaunes
Emily (@snarlsdegaulle) talks to Sauce (@communalsauce) and Mack (@incarcountry) about the Gilet Jaunes protests and the political situation in France. Vive la Commune de Paris!
North Bae 021 - Inequality in the Crown Jewel of Global Capitalism
For something a little different, comrade Tiberius recently recorded a talk given by Geographer Richard Walker of UC Berkeley as part of his speaking tour for his latest book, Pictures of a Gone City, about the stunning growth of wealth and the concomitant explosion of inequality in the Greater Bay Area, a region infamous as perhaps the beating heart and crown jewel of modern global capitalism. The audience for this talk was a left liberal/progressive crowd, however both the talk and the book are well worth paying attention to for those of us on the socialist left.
North Bae ep020 - Custom Reality and You
Returning from hiatus, comrade Tiberius sits down with Peter Coffin to discuss their book Custom Reality and You. Subscribe to their YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/petercoffin) for some fantastic video essays, and get the book in e-book or dead tree format at https://amzn.com/1521741042
great podcast for leftists
the hosts are very active and knowledgable and it's a great listen for any leftist
LCM has promise
I appreciate the sincere struggle sessions and the commitment to creating a socialist horizon for the current generation. I hope that they don’t get bogged down in PC identity politics issues like most Left groups.
We want better politics!
A very important pod for this moment
