    Last Jest On The Left

    Last Jest On The Left

    On this, our glorious siren song our hosts go over their favorite episodes and biggest problems with the show. They also talk politics because it seems like that's what people want to hear, probably. It's a safe bet by this point.

    Thanks to everyone who listened to the show over the last year. We wanted to do more but Ajit Pai has a blood grudge against Raghav as part of the Indian illuminati and it is no longer safe to continue. For it is said a blood grudge can only be quenched... with more blood.......

Leftist lulz

The issue with the left is we sometimes get bogged down in intellectualism and jargon. Left jest provides comic relief to anti capitalist discourse as well as a surprising amount of information. Keep it up guys!
